Power of Ganesh - (12) - " I Became more Beautiful day by day after I Started to Worship Sri Ganesha"

Name :- Y.P. Jayalath
From :- Gampola, Sri Lanka.


"I had a great devotion on Lord Ganesh since I was a child, but I had not worship Ganesh. After I came to know about the power of Ganesh through magazines, I started to offer red flowers, milk rice with jaggery and sweets. If I saw a red flower somewhere I remembered Lord Ganesha. Earlier I was afraid of all Gods because they get angry very easily and punish us. But when I came to know about Lord Ganesha is a very friendly god, I loved him.

One day I saw a dream about Ganesh, but actually I saw a cloth in red and gold colour and I felt that Ganesha was under that cloth. How happy I was! in that movement and I really thought that Ganesh with me and felt like I'm floating 2 or 3 feets above the ground. After that my devotion for Ganesh suddenly increased and wanted to worship more and more. But I didn't have enough money to buy a Ganesh Statue, anyway I determined to buy a picture then.

On next day, I went to a shop with the aim of buying a new picture or photo of Ganesh. Alas! There were all the god's pictures but not even one of Lord Ganesh. I worried why it was happened like in that way. I am a university student and my mother sends me money for only once a month. I stayed at university hostels, generally only the  small amount of money will remain at the end of the month. But in that particular month, there were 1000 rupees in hand. I determined to buy a Ganesh statue with that money. Next day I saw a dream that when I go to buy a small statue, all the small ones have sold out and only the huge ones remained. Therefore I told my dad about that and I said I thoroughly want a statue. In that dream my dad brought a huge Ganesh statue to our home.
I was very happy after I bought a statue which was in Gold colour. I could obtain all success in my life in each and every event in my life after I started to  worship Ganesh. My mother bought Ganesh CD, which consists 9 Mantra such as Maha Ganpathi Mool Manthra , Ganpati Stavaha:, etc.

Especially I want to say that " I became more and more beautiful day by day after I started to worship Ganesh. I had not go to any beauty salon but everyone said that my face has become more lightened and beautiful. I had dark patches on my face and I was too much skinny. But after, I could have a clear face and bit fat body. On the other hand, some of my colleagues who could not bear my positive change, troubled me a lot because of jealousy. However I requested from Ganesh deva to protect me and avoid all the obstacles which I would have to face."

I recall my memory on one of the meritorious activity of my life and requested from Lord Ganesha to give me the chance to qualify for university entrance and to give me the knowkedge and power to fullfil the all requirements.

The Chant of Ganesh

Introduction


When most people hear of Tantra, they immediately think of sex. The first popular books on Tantra in English, written by "Arthur Avalon" (Sir Thomas Woodroffe), appeared in England toward the end of the sexually repressive Victorian era. However, even during that period it was considered permissable to openly discuss the sexuality of mysterious, dark-skinned foreigners. Although Avalon's books only briefly discussed sexuality, salons were filled with surprisingly explicit talk about how his books revealed what "those people" did and how they did it, helping to relieve the repression while feeding their myth of racial superiority and the "White Man's Burden".
 In fact, Tantra is no more exclusively about sex than Paganism is exclusively about the Great Rite. Like Western Paganism - from which much of the dominant religion of the West, Christianity, is taken - the roots of Tantra go back a least 5,000-10,000 years. Many Tantric spiritual concepts have been absorbed into the major religions of the area, Hinduism and Buddhism.
 In the U.S. Tantra began to grow in popularity as a result of two things, the birth control pill (and the resulting "sexual revolution") and the influence of Rajneesh (now called Osho) and his students (and their students). The result has been that Rajneesh's version of Tantra, what he called "Neo-Tantra", is now identified with Tantra per se. As Georg Feuerstein noted in his book on Tantra, a Tantric from India might not even recognize what is taught in the U.S. as Tantra as being anything Tantric.
 Traditional Tantra is a complete Pagan spiritual system. Most Eastern mystical concepts can be directly traced to the early Tantrics or what I call "proto-Tantrics", including (hatha) yoga, the chakras, kundalini energy, etc. Indirectly we can trace Kung Fu (and those martial arts derived from it), acupuncture, massage, and even Feng Shui to ancient Tantric practices. Traditional Tantra features gods and goddesses, magical practices, seasonal celebrations, etc. Just as many people in the U.S. have found a home in Paganism from all over the world, I think that Traditional Tantra may eventually hold a place in the supermarket of Paganism, too.
Sound


One of the important magical aspects of Tantra focuses on the impact of sound. In fact, there is a saying that "There is no Tantra without mantra". Six of the major chakras are each seen as lotuses with a certain number of petals. The total number of petals on all the lotuses is fifty, matching the number of letters in the Sanskrit alphabet. Indeed, each petal has a letter assigned to it.
 The alphabet of Sanskrit is called the Devanagari alphabet, and each letter is called a matrika or little goddess. Special letter combinations are considered to be a deity in sound form. Note that I did not say a symbol of or a representation of a diety. Rather, the sound is the deity itself.
 Needless to say, deities are considered powerful. Just saying properly formed sounds, words, or phrases is also considered powerful. Such sounds, words, or phrases are called mantras. Please note that a mantra is not just any ol' words thrown together and repeated.
Mantras


All sound has an effect on the things around it. This is known as resonance. One of the most famous examples of this consists of playing certain notes on a violin near a piano, resulting in some of the piano strings beginning to vibrate and make a sound.

Most words and sounds are simply random. But certain ones, mantras, have great power. They can cause surpirsingly powerful changes in your physical body, the environment around you, your non-physical bodies (or koshas) and the spiritual planes that interpenetrate our world.
The most famous mantra is probably om or aum. It is considered so important that there is a special additional Sanskrit letter, the omkara, to indicate the sound. When repeating longer mantras, you will frequently begin and end with the om. 
 The most popular mantra in India is probably the Gayatri (pronounced "guy-a-tree") mantra. There are many varations of it, but it is little known in the West. Here in the U.S., thanks to the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, the "Hare Krishna" mantra is better known. In this article, however, I would like to introduce you to a short mantra you can use, the mantra of Ganesh. 
Ganesh


 Ganesh (sometimes spelled Ganesha, but usually pronounced "gah-nesh") is also known as Ganapati. Being the son of Parvati and Shiva, he is definitely a Tantric deity. One myth is that Shiva (who is the highest teacher or adiguru of Tantra) wouldn't reveal any of the secrets of Tantra to his beloved wife, Parvati. But she discovered a time when he would be weak enough to reveal the secrets...during sex! So as they made love, she would ask him about the spiritual secrets of Tantra and he would reveal them. Ganesh, hidden in the shadows, would write it all down. This is the metaphoric source of the supposed 108 classic books known as "The Tantras".

 In this sense, then, Ganesh has similarities to the gods Mercury or Thoth. He brings writing and knowledge. But he is most often known as the "Breaker of Obstacles". This does not mean that if something blocks your way to success that appealing to Ganesh will result in your thundering through your opposition like some great juggernaut (a word derived from the name of a Hindu deity Jaganath). Rather, Ganesh breaks obstacles by working around them. He may not help you fix a relationship, but He might help you find a new one. He might not get you a raise at work, but you might get a job offer from another company for more money. Ganesh is a warrior, but is not into fighting for fighting's sake. Indeed, that is why he lost his head and it had to be replaced with the head of a elephant. Rather, He helps you find other ways of overcoming obstacles. The real obstacles He breaks are those which prevent you from recognizing alternative solutions.
 Ganesh is very popular, even among mainstream Hindus. Most worship rituals, no matter the deity they are focused toward, usually begin with a call to Ganesh. Most shops will have a statue or painting of the fat, elephant-headed, one-tusked deity near the door. He is one kewl dude.

The Nature of Lord Ganesha

  • TRIAD OF THREE GREAT PILLARS have held Hinduism high, century after century:the sat gurus, the temples and the scriptures.Together they echo the greatness of the loving God Ganesha, the Lord of Dharma, son of Siva. For untold millennia our rishis and sages have proclaimed the profound depths of the mind, assuring us that we, too, can and must come to know God and the Gods. It is the living presence of these satgurus and their spoken teachings which has brought to life the traditional practices and philosophy of the Sanâtana Dharma. Now we shall delve into the nature of Lord Ganesha, what He is like, what functions this great God performs and find out how each seeker can make Him a vital part of daily life’s path of experience.
  • Once a psychic connection is made with Lord Ganesha—
    the Deity who manifests in several forms, including the elephant-headed Lord of Categories and Remover of Obstacles—one is brought slowly into the mysteries of the Sanâtana Dharma. Such an inner connection, which can be as subtle as a feeling, as tenuous as a dream or as bold as a personal visit, is also an entering into one’s own mûlâdhâra chakra, governed by the planet Mercury, for every opening into a new chakra is also an introduction to the Deity who governs that state of consciousness and the planet to which that chakra is connected.
  • The Sanâtana Dharma, known today as Hinduism, is the only living religion on the planet that does not look to a human founder for its source of inspiration, scripture or historical beginning. It is timeless and ageless. Sanâtan Dharma, the root religion of humankind, looks inward for its origins, into the subtle, super conscious realms within the microcosm, which it calls the Kâranaloka, Sivaloka or Third World. This great religion has no single organized headquarters on the material plane. Nor does it have a one hierarchy. Who then is in charge of Hinduism? Why, it is none other than our loving Ganesha! He doesn’t live inRome, nor in Salt Lake City. Lord Ganesha lives simultaneously every where Hindus worship and pray within themselves. He doesn’t have to be reappointed from time to time, because yugas and yugas ago He was permanently and irrevocablyappointed when He was created for this work.

Meaning of Lord Ganesha's Body Parts

Lord Ganesha 

Lord Ganesha is the Hindu deity in a human form but with the head of an elephant - represents the power of the Supreme Being that removes obstacles and ensures success in human endeavors. For this reason, Hindus worship Ganesha first before beginning any religious, spiritual or worldly activity. In Hindu mythology, Lord Ganesha is the first son of Lord Shiva and the Divine Mother Parvati. Their second son is Lord Subramanya and their daughter is Jyoti. As explained below, the portrayal of Lord Ganesha as the blend of human and animal parts symbolizes the ideals of perfection as conceived by Hindu sages and illustrates some philosophical concepts of profound spiritual significance.


  • Elephant head, wide mouth, and large ears: the large head of an elephant symbolizes wisdom, understanding, and a discriminating intellect that one must possess to attain perfection in life. The wide mouth represents the natural human desire to enjoy life in the world. The large ears signify that a perfect person is the one who possesses a great capacity to listen to others and assimilate ideas.
  • The trunk and two tusks with the left tusk broken: there is no known human instrument that has an operating range as wide as that of an elephant's trunk. It can uproot a tree and yet lift a needle off the ground. Likewise, the human mind must be strong enough to face the ups and downs of the external world and yet delicate enough to explore the subtle realms of the inner world. The two tusks denote the two aspects of the human personality, wisdom and emotion. The right tusk represents wisdom and the left tusk represents emotion. The broken left tusk conveys the idea that one must conquer emotions with wisdom to attain perfection.
  • Elephant eyes: the elephant eyes are said to possess natural deceptiveness that allows them to perceive objects to be bigger than what they really are. Thus the elephant eyes symbolize the idea that even if an individual gets "bigger and bigger" in wealth and wisdom, he should perceive others to be bigger than himself; that is, surrender one's pride and attain humility.
  • The four arms and various objects in the four hands: the four arms indicate that the Lord is omnipresent and omnipotent. The left side of the body symbolizes emotion and the right side symbolizes reason. An axe in the upper left hand and a lotus in the upper right hand signify that in order to attain spiritual perfection, one should cut worldly attachments and conquer emotions. This enables one to live in the world without being affected by earthly temptations, just as a lotus remains in water but is not affected by it. A tray of Laddus (a popular snack) near the Lord denotes that He bestows wealth and prosperity upon His devotees. The lower right hand is shown in a blessing pose, which signifies that Ganesha always blesses His devotees.
  • A human body with a big belly: the human body possesses a human heart, which is a symbol of kindness and compassion toward all. Ganesha's body is usually portrayed wearing red and yellow clothes. Yellow symbolizes purity, peace and truthfulness. Red symbolizes the activity in the world. These are the qualities of a perfect person who perforrns all duties in the world, with purity, peace, and truthfulness. The big belly signifies that a perfect individual must have a large capacity to face all pleasant and unpleasant experiences of the world.
  • A mouse sitting near the feet of Ganesha and gazing at the tray of Laddus: a mouse symbalizes the ego that can nibble all that is good and noble in a person. A mouse sitting near the feet of Ganesha indicates that a perfect person is one who has conquered his (or her) ego. A mouse gazing at the Laddus, but not consuming them, denotes that a purified or controlled ego can live in the world without being affected by the worldly temptations. The mouse is also the vehicle of Ganesha, signifying that one must control ego in order for wisdom to shine forth.
  • Right foot dangling over the left foot: as stated above, the left side of the body symbolizes emotion and the right side symbolizes reason and knowledge. The right foot dangling over the left foot illustrates that in order to live a successful life one should utilize knowledge and reason to overcome emotions.

Ganesh Secrets of Success - (13) - Powerful Ganesh Feet Worship Mantra (Part 2)


What is the Order?

  • Now you know several mantras of Lord Ganesh. Therefore how to chant them in orderly? What is the order? You may have this kind of question in your mind. I want to tell that there is no any order of chanting mantras. You can chant them or sing them in your own order but chant the Mool Mantra first.Maha Ganpati Mool Mantra is the first one you should chant and then you can sing others in any order.

Important

  • By this feet worship mantra we do not ask or request anything from Ganesh. We offer our noble gratitude, devotion and respect for Lord Ganesha through this mantra. We expect the love and confidence from Ganpati by chanting and foot worshiping.
  • Because we should not request always from Ganpati as : "please give me this.. please give me that.. ". That means we should not show the greediness for Ganesh. Then any God will be displeasure or disgust on us. You can see the Tamils do not request always but they always give prasadam (pooja). But you know all others offer things for Ganesh but if those request are not succeeded, they scold or blame Ganesh. Please do not be like that.
  • Please keep in mind that this is not a mantra which can be used to request something. This is one of the mantras which shows our piety and devotion for Ganpati. Thus we would be able to have Lord Ganesha's love and attraction to stay more close to Ganesh. I love feet worship mantra a lot because it admires Ganesh Deva a lot.

Ganesh Secrets of Success - (13) - Powerful Ganesh Feet Worship Mantra (Part 1)

Powerful Ganesh Foot Worship Mantra

Ganesh Feet Worshiping

  • Devas (God) are the ones who has done huge amount of meritorious deeds then had the their next birth in heaven. Ganapati is also like that and Ganesh Deva is one of the most powerful god in heaven. If you chant this powerful mantra while touching and worshiping Ganesha's feet, he will be more and more lovable to you. Every god like to be worshiped with foot touching and we get more and more blessings from them. They will be satisfied about us when we are doing this. Devas are the ones who had lot of merits. So that we should respect them a lot.
  • When we are worshiping, if we can chant mantras that will be a more effective and successful worshiping. For that, there is a feet worship mantra. This Mantra is somewhat popular but the correct and accurate method of worshiping cannot be found in anywhere else. I am going to explain the correct method of worshiping for the first time.

Method

  1. First you have to worship.
  2. Then touch Ganesha's feet from your both hands.
  3. Now, While worshiping (Both hands together) chant this Indian mantra.
  4. Again touch feet of Ganesha.
  5. Finally worship again.
  • You can find the meaning of this mantra in my blog- powerful-ganesh-feet-worship-mantra.html#links. But you do not need to chant the meaning of this mantra which I have mentioned in "Mantra" tab of my blog. I posted the meaning of this mantra to give a better understanding about what you are going to say. If you chant this mantra without knowing the meaning it will be an empty word chanting. Therefore keep in your mind, Ganpati does not like to hear empty words. So you have to understand the meaning from the bottom of your heart and tell it. Otherwise no use of chanting it like singing birds.

When to Chant

  • There is not any specific time to chant this mantra. You can chant this anytime. In the morning, evening or at night or at anytime, when you worship Ganesh, when you chanting other Mantras, you can chant this too.
  • When you feel love on Ganesh, when walk close to the Ganesh statue at home, before you engage in an important task or business, before travel somewhere, you can chant this foot worship mantra.
  • Before chant this mantra it is better to chant the Mool Mantra first. Then you will receive more attention from Ganesh Deva. Mool Mantra can be found in my blog - Maha Ganpati Mool Mantra

Power of Ganesh - (10) - " Ganpati Saved me from a terrible accident"

Name:- Sithara Sangeeth Dissanayake
Address   :- No:01/A, "Isansu", Polgolla, Kandy, Sri Lanka.

"I'm a Ganesh devotee. In 2012 December my horoscope said that I will have to face an accident, so I should be careful about that. Because of that after I worship Ganesh with red flowers, incense and a coin, I used to say "please Lord Ganesha protect me from accidents all the time when I am traveling and please give your blessings". After I got a new job I board in a new place in Kurunegala. Owners of that house also interested in feng shui and worship Ganesh. On 11th December 2012, when I was in the town, suddenly a motor bike came without break and clashed into the right side of my car. Only vehicles was damaged and no one get injured. Not even single scratch for human. I saved from that terrible accident because of Lord Ganesha's blessings.
Those are rainy days and a heavy rain falls in Kurunegala town. The last day I had to work is 22nd of December but I couldn't go home without my car. Because I hadn't told about this accident to my family members. The place which I had delivered my vehicle to repair couldn't finish repairing it because of the rain. I stayed with a great hope in my mind until 22nd with the idea of going home. But when I woke up in the morning it was still raining.
Suddenly I remembered Ganesh after I had a wash but at that time there were not any way to find red flowers. Then I lit an incense stick, offered a coin, played mool mantra via my mobile and said " today is the last day for repairing my car before vacation but this rain is an obstacle for it. I want your blessings". At the end of the playing of mool mantra, I looked through the window and the rain has disappeared while sun was shining in the sky. At once I asked a red flower to offer Ganesh from aunty of my boarding place. Aunty also said " son, you worshiped ganesh. no? I thought it because the rain has disappeared". At that day all of us felt the power of Lord Ganesh very well.
On 27, January 2013 we gave an alms giving for an elders' house because it was my birthday. I wished to receive those merits to Lord Ganesha. I tell about God Ganpati with a great devotion and happiness".

One day she has bought a lottery while thinking about Ganapati and for that lottery, she won a prize of Rs.1000. By that money, my mother bought a Ganesh statue and books,pencils, pens for a poor child. After few days, in the same way she won Rs.1000 again. We wondered a lot and we were so happy about that. We always give merits for Ganesh Dewa and we have pasted Mantras on the wall where we have kept the Ganesh statue. We sing them loudly while worshiping."

"One day I went to bank to withdraw some money. After 3 weeks, I wanted to withdraw money again. I checked my ID before go to bank in a hurry but it was not in my pocket. I was afraid a lot because I will have to face so many problems with the lost ID. I remembered Lord Ganesh and suddenly asked "please Lord Ganesh remind me the place where I have kept my ID, even give me a clue or wisdom about the place".
I requested like that in my mind. Then the magical thing happened. On the same day, when I was sleeping at night I saw a dream that I was transacting in the bank. Next morning I told about the dream to my husband and he told me, may be I have forgotten it in the bank when I visited last time. One of my husband's cousin worked at that bank. Therefore in next morning my husband went to meet that cousin to ask about my ID. At last she had kept my ID safely and I thanked God Ganapati and I felt a great devotion from the bottom of my heart. I worship Ganesh everyday and offer flowers, incense sticks. All my family members are doing these things and sometimes we joke and telling funny things while rubbing Lord Ganesha's tusk. We tell our needs and wants and exchange every stuff with Ganesha. Actually all of us receive Lord Ganesha's blessings".

Power of Ganesh (7) - "I am Catholic, but Ganesh came in my dreams"

We learned that it is one of the favourite food of Ganesh. After the exam seminar I remembered Ganesh a lot and I was eager to know more and more about Lord Ganesh. I started to chant Ganesh mantra, songs. After that everyday Ganesh came in my dreams. I am really happy about this because I am a catholic and this experience is amazing"

OM - Aum and Ganesh

  • Ganesha is identified with the Hindu mantra Aum or Om. The term -Om is in "his" form), when identified with Ganesha, refers to the notion that he personifies the primal sound. The
  • Ganapathi Atharvashirsa attests to this association, which refers to as under (O Lord Ganapati!) You are (the Trinity) Brahma Vishnu and Maheswara. You are Indra andYou are Agni and You are the sun and the moon You are (the three worlds) Bhuloka [earth],Antariksha-loka [space], and Swargaloka [heaven]. You are Om. (That is to say, You are allthis).Some devotees see similarities between the shape of Ganesha's body in iconography and the shape of Aum in the Devanagari and Tamil scripts.
  • It is said that Ganesha was born when the eternal couple contemplated on AUM. If you view Lord Ganesha sideways, then you will see the symbol AUM in sanskrit. That's why Ganesha is called Aumkara and worshipped first. AUM is Pranava. What is meant by Pranava?(Pra is short for prakriti and navam means excellent boat) That is, AUM is the way to cross the ocean of worldly existence.
 
  • Look at the image on top. Lord Ganesha is both within form and beyond form. As "within form", He is most commonly depicted as a strange composite of elephant and man, generally mounted on a mouse with four arms. However as "beyond form" He represents the Pranava (AUM) which is the symbol of the Supreme Self. If you view Lord Ganesha sideways as shown above, you will see the symbol "AUM" in Sanskrit. That's why Ganesha is called "Aumkara" and worshiped first by all Hindus regardless of their belief in God with form or without form.
  • Taitiriya Upanishad (1.8.1.) states: "AUM ITI BRAHMAN -AUM is God”. This further explains the practice of invoking Lord Ganesha before beginning any rite or undertaking any project.

We Experienced the Power of Ganesh - (1) - "All the Rats Started to Scream"

  • On right, This is, Mihiranga Fernando, my ever loving boyfriend and I'm going to say about his first experience of Lord Ganesh. It was 05th June, 2013 and he received this Ganesh statue (right side) as a gift from my mother. My mother bought it few days before and however there weren't any particular place to keep it. Because of that reason she gave her Ganesh statue as a present to Mihiranga. He came to his boarding place with that statue at about 1 a.m. Actually he didn't know the power of Ganesh well and we all didn't experienced much about the power by that. But I knew little more because I had started this blog and was searching and reading so many experiences.
  • Anyhow at that day he had a wash and going to settle Ganesh statue in his room. Then when he was staring at Ganesh statue for few minutes, All the rats (mice) had started to scream loudly. The specialty is all at once. He said that he doesn't know how all mice came and shouted like that. He was shocked and settled Ganesh statue as soon as possible and you can see in the image Ganesh statue and the oil lamp which had been lighten for Ganesh. He said that it was a miracle and all the rats never screamed that much loudly at the same time. At about 5 a.m. he called me and told this incident and I didn't noticed the most special thing until he made me understand. That was "the rat is the vehicle of Lord Ganesh". My mother and me also wondered a lot after hearing this wonderful incident. However after this incident my mother, my boyfriend and I understood the power of Lord Ganesh and day by day we are having more and more wonderful incidents to tell about Ganesh. The image here on right side is the first photograph which was taken by my boyfriend when he was worshiping Ganesh. Lord Ganesha will always be with us and make our lives happy by filling all our hearts with love.
  • Nowadays all of us worshiping Ganesh in every morning and evening with red flowers, incense sticks, sweet foods and a coin. All of us have Devine chants of Ganesh CD and we play it in every morning and evening.

Power of Ganesh (6) - "My husband stopped using drugs"


"My husband stopped using drugs"

Name :- Not mentioned
Location :- Kandy

  • After I heard about worshiping Ganesh via feng shui seminars, me also bought a Ganesh statue from a feng shui outlet and started to worship in every morning and evening. By that I have fallen mentally a lot. I am married and have two children. My husband is a businessman and he obtained a higher income. I was shocked after I knew my husband was a drug addicted. Which wife can be happy after knowing her husband is a drug addicted? I was burning with tears almost always. I told him with love to stop this bad work even because of children. Then he accepted to stop but he was unable to do it again. Because he had addicted toughly for drug. I quarreled with him and told but no use of it. I felt that his business was also going down. The business was bankrupting because he spent all money for drugs. I had nothing to do without crying or weeping. I didn't tell about this problem to anyone of my family because of the shame. Since I hadn't got anyone to tell about these worries, I always told about it to Lord Ganesh and chanted all the shlokas, mantras and worshiped everyday. I made 8 wishes pot (how to make 8 wishes pot) and my first wish was the " please stop my husband's habit of using drugs. I usually offered milk rice with jaggery too. I worshiped Ganesh every morning and evening with my little child.
  • After 3 weeks later, one day I heard my husband was calling with one of his friends. Then he said " I'm gonna go to the shop" and drove away. Suddenly after he left home I ran towards Ganesh statue and wept with tears and told " my husband went to bring drugs please somehow stop my husband doing this". I worshiped again and again and requested the same thing. My husband left home at about 6 in the evening but he didn't came home until 8, 9 at night. I was afraid a lot but I didn't have a phone to call him, and I again went to Ganesh and told "please protect my husband and make him come home soon." I chanted the same thing on my bed with my little child about 100 times.
  • It was 12 o' clock in midnight. He didn't came home. I thought that he may face an accident because he didn't get that much late earlier. I didn't sleep even a second. At about 1.00 a.m someone knocked at the door and my husband came home. But I didn't hear any sound of the vehicle. Suddenly before talking to me, ran towards Ganesh statue and took it to his hand and told "God Ganesha saved me". All the merits for you. I wondered a lot because he never worship Ganesh with that much devotion although he had brought red flowers when I told him to bring.
  • The reason is to getting late is, he had gone to buy drugs but the friend who had called him in the evening had given secret information to the police to catch my husband. That friend used drugs also and he had got several friends in police too. Since the police want some cases, they have told this person to find something. When my husband was buying drugs, 3 civil police officers caught him and the drug seller and remanded. He says that he reminded Lord Ganesh a lot when he was in prison. Then at about 12.30 a.m. one of the police officers came and told my husband to go home. He was amazed because no one will release like that without filing a case. He has reminded Ganesh at that time too. But the police kept the vehicle with them. Next day we both went to police and bring the vehicle back. Police officers warned my husband a lot saying that if this happen again he wouldn't get any excuse.
  • After this incident my husband feared and he stopped taking drugs without any warnings from anyone. You know, that a person who has addicted to drugs never will be able to stop that completely. My husband consulted a doctor for about 2 or 3 months and now a days he has been completely apart from drugs. Now he worships Ganesh with devotion more than myself. We both believe that Lord Ganesha is the reason for the success and happiness of our family.
  • Lord Ganesha get all the merits for making my husband a good person.
  • I don't like to reveal my name since my husband and me will have to face difficulties because my husband has done an illegal misdeed.
