Shri Vakratunda Mahakaya Mantra is one of the most important mantra dedicated to Lord Ganesha, Goddess Riddhi (Goddess of Prosperity) and Goddess Siddhi (Goddess of spiritual enlightenment). ✨“Vakratunda Maha-Kaaya Surya-Kotti Samaprabha Nirvighnam Kuru Me Deva Sarva-Kaaryeshu Sarvadaa ||”✨ ✨Meaning ✨ Vakra – means one that is not straight. Vakratunda – means curved trunk. Mahakaya – means large body, if we see that in a more divine sense it means most powerful. Suryakoti – means ‘Surya’ or sun and koti means crore. Samprabha – means ‘prabha – aura, grandeur’ , ‘sama- like’. Suryakoti samprabha – means whose aura is like light of crores of sun put together. Nirvgnam – obstacle free. Kurume – give me. Deva – means God. Sarva – means all. Karyeshu -work. Sarvada -always. ✨Full meaning : “Oh god with curved trunk, large body whose aura is like light of crores of sun, Please make my entire work obstacle free, forever.” ✨Benefit : Chanting of this mantra invokes Lord Ganesha to remove every obstacle between one and one’s well-being and helps to achieve wealth, wisdom, good luck, prosperity and success in all the endeavors. ✨ Ganesh Gayatri Mantra ✨ In a fight with Guru Parashuram, he threw an axe at Lord Gajanan which was a gift to him by his father. So to honor this gift, Ganesha chose to bear the axe’s blow instead of destroying it. Ganesha thus lost one his tusk, but gained humility and modesty. ✨Aum Ekadantaya Viddhamahe, Vakratundaya Dhimahi, Tanno Danti Prachodayat॥✨ ✨Meaning : Ekadantaya – The one with the single tusked elephant tooth. Viddhamahe – who is omnipresent. Vakratundaya – Curved trunk. Dhimahi – We meditate upon and pray for greater intellect. Tanno Danti – We bow before the one with the single tusked elephant tooth. Prachodayat – Illuminate our minds with wisdom. ✨Full meaning : “We pray to the one with the single-tusked elephant tooth who is omnipresent. We meditate upon and pray for greater intellect to the Lord with the curved, elephant-shaped trunk. We bow before the one with the single-tusked elephant tooth to illuminate our minds with wisdom.” ✨🌈💖🐘📿🌿🕉🍚🌷🌀❤️🙏🏻🌈✨
