Om gung Ganapataye naivedye svaha

One of the ways to offer Ganesha is to make him an offering, that can be food, but also water, flowers, incense.
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.
No obstacles  in Our House tonight, only an Indian feast, join us for Lentils-coconut dahl, some flavoursome Byriani and deep fried cauliflower, there will be soup and a rich chocolate cake as well :-)
