List of 108 Names of Lord Ganesha

The Lord of new beginnings or the ‘Elephant headed God (Gajanan), Lord Ganesha is the most worshipped and popular Hindu deity. He is known to remove(harna) all the obstacles (vighna) therefore called ‘Vighnaharta’. Ganesha, the son of Shiva and Parvati is the God of intellect and wisdom. He has the honour and powers of all the deities.

He is mostly worshipped by Hindus living across India and the other countries like Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Thailand and Indonesia. He is highly revered God and his idols and paintings are often given as gifts at various occasions for blessings.

As the lord of beginnings Ganesha is honoured before rites and auspicious ceremonies. Now there is a reason why Lord Ganesha is pratham pujya (first worshiper) and not any other deity. According to Hindu mythology once a competition was held among all the Gods to test the power of their respective vehicles (vahan) and the first person to complete the revolution of the universe will be called the first worshiper.

When everyone went ahead with their vehicles but Lord Ganesha got confused. He thought that the revolution of the whole universe is not possible with a small mouse so he showed his wisdom. He went around his parents Shiva- Parvati and completed the revolution. When the other gods came around, Lord Ganesha said that he considered his mother to be earth and his father to be sky and all the pilgrimages reside in them.

His reasoning was accepted and the gods were pleased and gave a boon to Ganesha that from today onwards, Ganesha will be worshiped first in every worship. This affection and devotion Lord Ganesha towards his mother and father is inspiring for the people even today.

Ganesha chaturthi is the birthday of Ganapati Bappa and is celebrated as Ganesha festival mainly in Maharashtra. The devotees welcome an idol of Ganesha into their houses usually for 10 days and its preparations begin months before. During this festival Ganapati Bappa is worshipped and offered modaks or laddus.

In Ganesh puja Lord Ganesha mantras are chanted and Lord Ganesha Ashtottara Shatanamavali(108 names of ganesha in sanskrit) is also recited followed by Aarti. Lord Ganesha has innumerable attributes and is known by various different names. These names in sanskrit are collectively known as Ashtottara Shatanamavali of Lord Ganesha.

Devotees often recite it regularly. The most common 12 names of Ganesha are 1. Vakratunda (Aries), 2. Ekadanta (Taurus), 3. Krishna Pingaksha (Gemini), 4. Gajavaktra (Cancer), 5. Lambodara (Leo), 6. Vikata (Virgo), 7. Vighnaraja (Libra), 8. Dhoomravarna (Scorpio), 9. Balachandra (Sagittarius), 10. Vinayaka (Capricorn), 11. Ganapati (Aquarius), 12. Gajanana (Pisces).
