Overcoming Obstacles through Prayer

The Ganapati Upanishad

Swamini Svatmavidyananda Saraswati

The Ganapati-Atharvashirsha-Upanishad is a lucid unfoldment of the vision of God in the Vedic tradition. The word Ganapati means the one who is the Lord of all gaṇa —groups or species. In the vision of the Upanishad, the Lord is all pervasive, all-knowing, and ever-present —obtaining as the self-evident awareness within the intellect. When one understands Ganapati as both the imminent cause of all creation, and the transcendental and limitless presence that is non-separate from oneself, one gains self-knowledge and is freed of fear and sorrow, the hallmarks of saṃsāra.

Offered daily in morning satsang, afternoon workshop, and evening satsang (subject to change).

Svatmavidyananda Swaminiji is a longtime disciple of Pujya Sri Swami Dayananda Saraswatiji, one of the greatest masters of Vedanta in contemporary times. She is the acharya of Arsha Vijnana Gurukulam, an ashram based in Atlanta, GA and Eugene, OR. She has been active in the interfaith movement leading and featuring in prominent international dialogues on religious diversity, harmony, peace and mutual respect among various religious traditions. She splits her time between serving as a resident teacher in the Swami Dayananda Ashram, and traveling internationally offering talks and retreats. Swaminiji is the author of books such as Freedom from Distrust and Overcoming Self-Sabotage in Spiritual Growth, and contemplation card set entitled Musings on Oneness.
