Tuesday Tune, vol 66 - Ganesh is Fresh

Today's Tuesday Tune is Ganesh is Fresh by M.C. Yogi.  It's brought to you by Megan, who let me know of its existence late Sunday night after I posted that one thing on Obstacles and Beginnings.   Give it a listen, and perhaps you'll learn more about Ganesh.  Just in time for Christmas.

(Honestly I'm Christian, but I find other religions and rituals extremely fascinating.)

Here are the lyrics, just in case you too are fascinated:

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 / and 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 and 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 and 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 /


chorus
Jaya Ganesha Jaya Ganesha Jaya Ganesha Om
