Ganesha, the Elephant-Headed avatar, is the remover of all obstacles. He is to be remembered
before starting any work or commencing spiritual rites. Many different Mantras are
used to evoke Ganesha. Most of them begin with the letter G.
"Ganesha is the gatekeeper and Lord of the Sex Chakra. His four arms tell of the fourpetaled
sexual center and the earth element, symbolized by a square. Ganesha is the remover
of physical, emotional, and psychic obstacles; his immense body and graceful movements
symbolize the blend of inner strength and sensitivity necessary for advancement along the
spiritual path of Tantra.
"Elephants are the symbol of kingship, and in ancient times they could only be owned by
powerful rulers. Devotees who wish to know our special secrets should first honor Ganesha, without whose help no magical act bears fruit.
"Ganesha's long trunk reminds one of the Lingam and his sensuous mouth is like a Yoni,
delicate yet all-consuming. Ganesha's consort is called Siddhi because magical powers (Siddhi)
can only be controlled once sexuality has been understood and used as an aid to individual
evolution. Ganesha rules the spirits presiding over the five elements and his large stomach
allows him to digest the experiences of his followers. Ganesha brings good fortune and
success. He is the symbol of discrimination and entry into the realm of occult power."
Lord of Obstacles and ruler over the sex center.
"Ganesha still guards the doorway to the inner sanctum. This is a sexual secret that all
women share. The Yoni is Ganesha's mouth; the clitoris, his trunk, is a secret
Lingam. Truly, Ganesha guards the portal to occult power! For the benefit of those who
wish to advance along the path of ecstasy,
