Om gung Ganapataye naivedye svaha
Sandalwood malas are especially pleasing to Ganesha. A mala is a string of beads used when saying prayers or mantras.It has 108 regular beads and one specal larger bead know as the guru bead that lets you know when you've finished the cycle .
Ganesha is the Lord of Obstacles, both of a material and spiritual order. He is popularly worshipped as a remover of obstacles, though traditionally he also places obstacles in the path of those who need to be checked.
