Ganesha Mantra for Inner Strength
The breath of autumn has slowly come to Germany, and it feels good. Cooler days, changing leaves and a slight sense of slowing town a touch 😉 I’m looking forward to autumn – to wearing boots and jackets, and walking about in the rain. It’s a poetic time. Which is a great time for reflection and stillness. I often reflect on hard times and how I have overcome them using mantra. One of the times I reflect on most is the lockdown in 2020 when I used the Ganesha mantra to help me immensely. Here I am going to share with you how you can use the Ganesha Mantra in your life as well.
The lockdown started in Germany when I just got back from a 4-month stay in Australia & Bali, in March 2020. I remember it well, as I imagine you do too! During this time I was meant to do a 35 concert/workshop tour that spring. When lockdown was announced I just started the tour.
At the time, I remember the feeling of complete anxiousness… My business landscape changed overnight, and I didn’t know how I was going to earn my living. Furthermore, I felt numb at first, then angry, and then I remembered…there is a mantra for every difficult time in our lives, and I knew one that could help me during this time.
Ganesha Mantra for Inner Strength
Ganesha, the Hindu elephant God, is the remover of obstacles. He can help us find the way through or around a problem, with ease, joy and little playfulness 😉 And in spring 2020 this was exactly what I needed to regain my inner strength and resilience!
So I began a daily chanting practice with the Ganesha mantra: Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha
Om – the primordial sound / the origin sound.
Gam – a seed or Biji mantra for Ganesha. It strengthens the overall intensity of the mantra.
Ganapataye – another name for Ganesha
Namaha – means to offer reverence to someone or to bow before them
And overtime, I felt different. Where I once saw obstacles I was starting to see solutions. Despite being in a different situation I started to feel my joy and flow come back to me. This is what the mantra does. By chanting it, you align yourself with the energy of Ganesha, and strengthen these qualities within yourself until you become them.
Be the Light
You know, mantra chanting is like becoming a lighthouse. Firstly, you begin the chant by focusing on the words. Next, focusing on its meaning, vibration and how to pronounce it. After a number of repetitions, you won’t have to actively concentrate so much and instead you’ll likely feel that the words are chanting you!
I make an analogy here to a lighthouse. When you begin, you fill yourself up with the energy of the mantra. And then after a point it pours out of you into the world. Try it for yourself and see 😉

“Kirbanu has been with me for 6 months now and a lot has happened in different areas of my life, because the voice also represents so many beliefs, topics and wounds in us... Our self-expression, lived out freely and safely, opens up many doors and gives us a whole new quality of life. I'm so grateful for this work!”
