Lord Ganesha Prayer – to remove all obstacles

lord ganesha
Lord Ganesha is one of the most well-known Hindu deities and this is mainly attributed to the fact that Lord Ganesha is the remover of all obstacles. We all face obstacles in our life in various forms. These obstacles may be due to planetary influences, karmic accumulation, enemies or just because of our lack of planning. A commonly advised remedy to overcome such obstacles is to please Lord Ganesha.
The following is a simple ritual that can be performed by anyone willing to get the blessings of Lord Ganesha.
Everyday in the morning after your bath, light a lamp in front of a photo or idol of Lord Ganesha. Then look into the photo and chant the following mantras 3 times each :
Om gum ganapathaye vighnanashakaya namaha
Om gum ganapathaye dharmarakshaya namaha
Om gum ganapathaye sarvasiddhaya namaha 
You may also place a fruit or some food in front of the idol/photo of Lord Ganesha on fridays, while chanting the above mantras. Make this a regular habit and then you will see all your obstacles vanishing by the grace of Lord Ganesha.

    what fruits & foods can we place in front the ganesh idol??

    when the food starts to go bad what do we do with it? after each week do we throw it in the ocean or garbage or what? if we throw it out will we get bad luck?

    when designing your house which part of the house shall you make the prayer/meditation room and any websites where we can pick the design of the room??
