In this book of Ganapati Atharvashirsha you will find meaning in Marathi along with critique with scientific approach. Hope this will be useful to all, those who have curiosity about Vaidic Philosophy and also for those who are the seekers. We worship the unborn, unchanging, formless, the one beyond bliss and full of bliss, which is the fullness of non-duality, the supreme, devoid of qualities, without differences, and beyond desire, Sri Ganesha, the Supreme Brahman personified. We worship the one beyond the qualities, the embodiment of bliss consciousness, the light of consciousness, the all-pervading, who is the source, course, and goal of knowledge, whom the sages meditate upon, who is formless as akasha, the highest Lord, Sri Ganesha, the Supreme Brahman personified. Ganesha is the foremost Hindu Deity worshiped at the beginning of each prayer. In fact no prayer can begin without invoking Ganesha first. The word Ganesha is of Sanskrit origin, that is obtained by joining two words 'gana' meaning a group, multitude, or categorical system and 'isha' meaning lord or master. "Om Lam", I bow to Ganesha 'Om' (AUM) is the primordial sound of creation that signifies the absolute. This is uncreated sound that was in the beginning and will remain at the end of creation as well. It means 'I accept', or 'I assent'. All devotional acts begin with the chanting of 'Om'. Om serves to focus the attention of the Divine towards the devotee, and the attention of the devotee towards the divine. Significantly Ganesha is the personification of the primal Om. Lam'Lam' is the seed-mantra of the Muladhara Chakra, of which Ganesha is the gatekeeper or Deva. You are the Tattva. You alone are the Creator. You alone are the Maintainer. You alone are the Destroyer. Of all this, you are certainly the Brahma. You are the essence. Ganesha is praised as the Tattva. This word can be translated as 'principle' - so Ganesha could here, be identified as the 'Eternal Principle' underlying reality. Further, Ganesha is identified as the personification of Trimurti - the Creator (Brahma), the Sustainer (Vishnu), and the destroyer (Shiva). As Brahma, he continually creates. As Vishnu he holds those creations together in equilibrium; as Shiva he breaks down those combinations of matter. Furthermore, Ganesha is identified as the Absolute (Brahma), and the eternal indwelling 'essence' - the Atman (Self). You are Speech. You are Consciousness. You are Bliss. You are Brahma. You are Being-Consciousness-Bliss. You are the Non-Dual. You are plainly Brahma. You are Knowledge. You are Intelligence. The consciousness of man always remains situated in the Muladhara. Ganesha is identified as the Deva of the Muladhara Chakra - the 'root-support' of all beings. Equally, the elephant is the 'vehicle' associated with Muladhara. We are sure that you will not only enjoy the critique, but also will get lot of information too!!!
