Mahaganesha-nirbhinna-vighnayantra-praharshita – The Seventy Eighth name in Lalitha Sahasranamam.

She is delighted at the great ganesha breaking the obstacle formed of the magic yantra created by the daityas.

She is delighted at the great Ganesa’s destroying of the obstacle formed of the Yantra.

The vighna yantra named jayavighna (ie., obstruction to victory), which had eight angles and eight tridents, was defended by eight devatas, viz., Alasa and others, was inscribed on a stone slab two krosas (four miles) in extent and thrown by Visukra on the army of Devi. It was broken into many pieces by great Ganesa.

This is in continuation of the previous nama. Ganesha was created to remove the yantra ‘jaya vignam’planted by Bhandasura. Ganesha removed that yantra and helped the army of Lalitha to regain their self confidence. Lalitha was delighted with Ganesha, when he removed the yantra. We have to observe the beauty of these two namas. All evil activities are represented by this yantra. Maya is the cause of evil acts. This maya is caused by Lalitha and She alone can remove the veil of maya. Once She to removes the veil, pure Shiva is realized. But Lalitha on her own, will not remove the veil. She will remove the veil of maya depending upon our efforts. That is why She is addressed as Guru later in this Sahasranamam.

He is the emblem of patience, devotion and truth. He is the dutiful son and the remover of obstacles and his vehicle is a tiny mouse compared to his huge body. He is none other than Lord Ganesha. With the head of an elephant he may look tough from outside but he is the beloved deity of the people and the god of wisdom, literature and worldly success. As the “Lord of Obstacles,” Ganesha is responsible for creating obstructions of both a material and spiritual order. It is he who places obstacles in the path of those who need to be checked. Thus, Ganesha is thought to be the gatekeeper of shrines, and he is said to corrupt all those who are unworthy of entering such holy places by further deluding their minds with desires.

Ganesha can also remove obstacles for his devotees just as easily. Ganesha’s diametrically opposed functions as both obstacle-creator and obstacle-destroyer are vital to his character, giving it significant depth as he is venerable for both negative and a positive reasons.That said even the gods are not immune from Ganesha’s obstacles. In one variation of the famous Hindu myth of the cosmic milk-ocean, the gods churn its waters so single mindedly that they neglect to pay homage to the supreme Lord Shiva. Although they sought the elixir of immortality, as the end result of their churning, their efforts yield only poison, which begins to spill out of the ocean. The poison spreads upward to the realm of the gods, and so they came to Shiva for refuge, who in turn went to Ganesha. Ganesha informed his father that it was he who had created the obstacle for the purpose of visiting punishment upon the gods for attempting to obtain immortality without Shiva or himself in mind.Thus, no entity in the universe is immune from Ganesha’s obstacles.

Ganesha is often identified with the Hindu mantra Aum (ॐ, also called Om, Omkara, oṃkāra, or Aumkara), the fundamental sound of the universe. The term oṃkārasvarūpa (“Aum is his form”) in connection with Ganesha refers to the belief that he alone is the personification of the primal sound. This association is attested in the Ganapati Atharvashirsa, which describes Ganesha as an incarnation of the sacred sound and evidence is found in a passage which associates Ganapati with the Muladhara chakra. As translated by Courtright this passage reads:

You continually dwell in the sacral plexus at the base of the spine [mūlādhāra chakra. A variant version of this passage is translated by Chinmayananda as follows:

You have a permanent abode (in every being at a place) called Muladhara”.

Shri Ganesha was created by the Adi Shakti, the Primordial Power of God Almighty, without the cause of male-female principle. Being born out of the Primordial Mother, He is with Her all the times and hence in every Chakra in the human being. He is the embodiment of innocence, purity, and chastity in creation.

In the beginning of evolution, the first amoebae cell organisms were formed. Thereafter they become more and more complex, developing into multi-cellular organisms, and ultimately into humankind. The Mooladhara Chakra is made of the earth element and represents the beginning of life. When awakened and nourished, this association with the earth element manifests as a magnetic force within that person. This Chakra is at the root or foundation of the subtle system, and so is the support of all the other Chakras. The Mooladhara is situated below the abode of the Kundalini, at the very base of the subtle body. In Sanskrit moola means root (which is Kundalini) and adhara means the support. So Mooladhara translates into “the supporter of the Kundalini.”

The fundamental quality of this Chakra is innocence and the innate wisdom, which comes from having childlike innocence. The innocence is the type of quality which is evident in babies and small children. It represents action without motive or desire for gross personal gain. This innocence is accompanied by the innate wisdom of a child. A baby knows fundamental aspects of nature instinctively — it knows how to show discomfort by crying, or how to suck to obtain food. This root wisdom, if left untempered, would develop into a balanced set of priorities in the adult.

Unfortunately the influence of parents and society tends to muddy this innocence and so obscure the wisdom that goes with it.Simplicity, joy, purity, integrity and balance are other qualities manifest in human beings through this Chakra. Because this center governs the reproduction organs and systems, sexual attitudes and behavior critically impact the strength or weakness of this center.

Sexual excessiveness, both physical and mental, creates imbalances throughout the body’s systems. “So we have to put our carnal desires, dissolve them into the innocence, the Ocean of Innocence, we have to dissolve it in the Ocean of Innocence. Innocence is something to be appreciated, to be understood, to be enjoyed. Like you see animals are innocent, the children they are innocent, flowers they are innocent — divert your attention to all these things.

“Once Kundalini is awakened reverence for and desire to serve the Spirit within gradually becomes heightened. By awakening the qualities of the Mooladhara through meditation, we learn again to be more innocent beings, to be less motive-led in our actions, and to rediscover the wisdom which is strong enough to help us make the correct decisions in our lives.The presiding deity for the Mooladhara Chakra is Shri Ganesha, the Eternal Child. He is the embodiment of innocence and He guards His Mother Kundalini (Gauri) and Her instrument with great alertness and uncompromising zeal.

It is He who informs Kundalini when it is time to awaken and it is His anger which produces the heat in the sympathetic nervous system if any unauthorized person tries to do so. This is the reason why so many seekers have suffered a wide variety of mental and physical ailments, some serious enough to require hospitalization.It is for eternal joy that Adi Shakti (Primordial Power) created Shri Ganesha. Because that joy within you, of innocent joy, which doesn’t harm anybody, which doesn’t expect anything, which doesn’t demand anything, which doesn’t want anything, but just emitting joy all over, that sort of a personality you should have.

There is nothing wrong in wearing good dresses, nothing wrong in eating good food, nothing wrong in having conversations, but in all that, it is the respect of the innocence, the expression of the innocence should be there. With this innocence, we can solve the problems. All the problems of the world can be solved. That’s why the understanding of Shri Ganesha is so important and that is why it is explained in detail for you to understand the innonence of life and thereby derive joy out of life.
