New Year. New beginnings. New projects. It’s time to get your new-new on (see Ray J’s video where he talks about new-new) and Ganesh is the elephant-headed Hindu god of prosperity that removes obstacles for success. When in India, all ceremonies and prayers begin with Ganesh. He is a protector and good to take on trips. Also a prankster who needs to be kept happy with his very own shrine. Feel the power when you activate your Ganesh shrine at the beginning of a business day to attract abundance or to bless new ventures. Here’s what you’ll need:
1. Ganesh statue
2. small dish of uncooked rice
3. Ganesh Magical Candle

Gam = somwhere between “gahm” and “gum”
Ganapataye – gah.nah.paht.ah.yeh
