Gaṇapati Upaniṣat Gaṇapati Atharvaśīrṣam

The Gaṇapati Upaniṣat, also known as the Gaṇapati Atharvaśīrṣam is an excerpt from the Atharva Veda and honours Gaṇapati as the one supreme Truth. It is a powerful mantra to recite and is popularly chanted in India in temples and during festivals worshipping the beloved elephant headed God of beginnings.
