Now let’s talk about What is the best Ganesh Mantra, Ganesh Pooja and Ganesh Sadhana for this auspicious occasion.
Since, many people asked me to write about Ganesh Sadhana which includes simple procedure/ritual wherein one gets blessings with financial stability and also lord Ganesha is the devta for financial stability as it has its location in ‘sushma shareer’ in Muladhara chakra.
Even the element seen is earth which is the element of stability.
Hence, today I will write more about Laxmi Ganesh sadhana on this auspicious ganesh chaturthi 2023.
Maximum people pray to lord ganesha with intention to have good finance and to remove obstacles in his/her life, but when we talk about Laxmi Ganesh, one has to always worship laxmi along with ganesh as both are extremely important deity for stability of life and relationship.
Therefore whenever you need a good personal and professional relationship, name, fame, spiritual upliftment along with material gain, one should always pray Laxmi Ganesh together.
So, for those people who are extremely busy in their day to day life, doing lengthy Ganesh mantra or Laxmi Ganesh mantra sadhana won’t be possible, I recommend every Ganesh worshiper to chant the Laxmi Ganesh Stotra on Ganesh Chaturthi 2023.
