The Hindu god Ganesh (recognizable as the deity with the elephant's head) is known as the remover of obstacles, the greatest guru, and the god one prays to for success in spiritual and earthly matters. These 10 chants to Ganesh (including the popular Gyatri mantra and the Ganesh Mahamantra, repeated 108 times for good fortune) are intoned by a deep male voice (uncredited) and backed by a chorus of mixed gender voices. Simple instrumental accompaniment supports the chanting without detracting from the vocals. The album is powerful introduction to chanting, as well as a suitable backing track for yoga practice or meditation.
