A single Ganesha Namavali consists of 108 names, one for each bead in the japa-mala or chain held while chanting his praises.
As Anantachidrupamaya, he is the personification of the Universal Consciousness. Meditation removes the veils of illusion and helps his devotees realize his infinite power.
He is Avaneesh, master and protector of our earth, one to whom the most helpless of beings can turn to in times of need.
Avighna denotes one of Ganesha’s best known aspects, the One before whom all obstacles cease to exist.
‘Bala’ means child; as Balaganapati, he is a young boy, radiant as the rising sun and adored by all, both gods and lesser beings.
