about

This song is a cover by MC Yogi. I used to have a small Ganesh figure on my altar. He would help me focus on releasing certain obstacles in the way of my goals. When I heard this song I immediately wanted to cover it. Its my first attempt at rap. I have a blast performing it. Here's a little about Ganesh: Devotion to Ganesha is widely diffused and extends to Jains, Buddhists, and beyond India. Although he is known by many other attributes, Ganesha's elephant head makes him particularly easy to identify. Ganesha is widely revered as the Remover of Obstacles and more generally as Lord of Beginnings and Lord of Obstacles, patron of arts and sciences, and the deva of intellect and wisdom.

lyrics

Ganesh is so fresh chillin on his throne / surrounded by incense fruit and gold / with a heap of sweets piled in his bowl / he guards the gate and protects the threshold / when your blessed by Ganesh than you can travel / on a sacred journey to an inner temple / he paves the path that leads to the soul / & he’s known for removing all obstacles / now some may think it’s illogical / a myth or it’s just philosophical / but Ganesh makes everything possible / because elephant power’s unstoppable /

chorus
Jaya Ganesha Jaya Ganesha Jaya Ganesha Om

Ganesh is the god of wisdom loved by children / known for blessing homes that we live in / the lord of all creatures with divine features / inspiring the minds of yogi’s & truth seekers / he’s the son of Shiva and Parvati / he’s got an elephants head and a fat belly / with a snake for a belt to hold up his pants / he rides on a mouse and he loves to dance / with a lotus unfolding inside one of his of his hands / and an ax to attack all ignorance / a broom to remove any hindrance / and a noose to reduce all selfishness / he writes the pages that the sages chant / dropping ancient vedic science so we can comprehend / all the many ways that we can transcend / jai to Ganesh he’s a yogi’s best friend /

chorus
Jaya Ganesha Jaya Ganesha Jaya Ganesha Om

I pray to Ganesh to take away the stress / and pave the way into a place that’s blessed / centered in the chest where the breath is felt / when your blessed by Ganesh than the stress can melt / he destroys the knots that confine your thoughts / he dissolves the walls & he breaks the blocks / he unlocks the door to the sacred core / & he guards the gate at the pelvic floor / the benevolent elephant wise and intelligent / at the base of the spine he’s the earth element / he’s the ruler of the muladhara chakra / his brother rides a peacock and his names is Skanda / he’s the son of Uma and Mahadeva / I offer this puja to my homie Ganesha / to the son of Parvati and Mahesh / dedicated to Ganesh cuz he’s so Fresh /
