What better way to start my blog by calling upon the Elephant faced Lord Ganesha to remove any obstacles! Just like the great MahaRishi Ved Vyas called upon him to write down the greatest epic, I call upon him to help me write my thoughts and remove the obstacles. I also seek the blessings my Guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar for letting these words flow through me.


वक्रतुण्ड महाकाय सुर्यकोटि समप्रभ
निर्विघ्नं कुरु मे देव सर्वकार्येषु सर्वदा

Vakra-Tunnda Mahaa-Kaaya Surya-Kotti Samaprabha
Nirvighnam Kuru Me Deva Sarva-Kaaryeshu Sarvadaa

The Lord with the curved trunk and a mighty body, who has the magnificance of a Million suns, I pray to you Oh Lord, to remove the obstacles from all the actions I intend to perform.
