|Â Lord Ganesha is Worshiped in the Ganpatya Sampradaya
Althoguh, as per the Puranas of Hindu Mythology, it is commonly thought Ganesha is the son of Shiva and Shakti (Parvati), but
In reality, Ganesha, is another direct form of Par-Bhram (supreme god), who chose to make his way
That is why Ganpatya is also another path in Tantra for attaining God.
There are many Puranic Stories which give many stories related to Ganesha.
Out of which most important one is
a) His Birth
b) His Temporary Death
Due to that, he is called “Pratham Pujya”
Infact, in India when people have to say “Lets Start a thing”, they say “Lets do Shri Ganesh of This thing”.
That is why, in reality, he is part of every Nigam or Agam Tantra!
He is simply all applicable.
|Ganesha Tantra :
Ganesha can be worshiped in All three Modes : Satvik, Rajsik and Tamsik.
A Guru only thoroughly examines a disciples soul nature and tells him the right method.
In Satvik Method, the “Vinayak” form is beneficial.
In Rajsik Method, the “Gajanan” from is beneficial.
In Tamsik Method, the “Ucchisht Ganpati” form is beneficial.
A lot fo Paishachik (spirit) Tantras are said to be offshoot of this.
