Meaning of Ganesha shirt by Lakesh design:
Ganesha is said to have the power to remove obstacles from our material and spiritual path. Today, his image can be seen frequently protecting houses in India, where he is invoked, for example, before taking a trip or an exam. For Ganesha is the god of the ways, the wisdom and the letters, a god who is considered as protector and giver of good luck. It is also known by the name of Ganapati. Finally in the context of our yoga practice, chanting a mantra dedicated to him, such as Om Gam Ganapataye Namah, can help us invoke that energy of overcoming obstacles that we all have within.
History of Ganesha
Hindu mythology tells that the elephant head has a tragic explanation.Parvati modeled her second son Ganesha with the mixture of divine nectar and sandalwood paste, he entrusted him with the protection of the palace. Upon arrival, Shiva, Parvati’s husband, did not recognize Ganesha and cut off his head. For his part, the wife faced with this sad event threatened to destroy the entire Universe and, to make up for her mistake, Shiva promised her that she would cut off the head of the first creature to bring her son back to life. Therefore that is why its body carries an elephant head (this animal is a sacred animal that has been revered for more than 5000 years).
By repeating this mantra (108 times) as result we ask that any material or spiritual obstacle be removed from our path.
The mantra is: “Om Gam Ganapateye Namaha”.
Big head: symbolizes intelligence, wisdom.
Big ears: it is a message for us to listen more, it is necessary to have wisdom to listen a lot, with patience.

Rope: with this element we can get closer to the divine, it is a rescue rope. It also means an obligation to behave morally.

The feet: Symbolize siddhi and buddhi, the achievement of desires and knowledge.
