Ganesha Ashtothram – 108 Names of Lord Ganesha

The Ganesha Ashtothram or Ashtottara Shatanamavali refers to the 108 names of Ganesha which are recited to praise God Ganesha, who is known to be the remover of obstacles and help his devotees to reach their goals.

He is the elder brother of God Karthikeya and the son of the supreme deities Shiva and Parvati. He was entitled with several names for his divine acts, which are prescribed in several Puranas and agamas.

This Ashtothram as provided below shows us how the Lord Vinayaka is entitled with several divine names. Each of the names holds a deeper meaning which can be understood when someones read through his stories.

These 108 names of Ganesh were chanted on several occasions mainly while doing pooja or during holy rituals or even before starting new work.

The Ganesha Ashtothram is also an important part of Ganesh Chaturthi pooja, where each name is recited with an offering of a flower or sacred rice.

In several families, parents use to teach their children these 108 names and master them very nicely such that it improves their devotion from their childhood itself.
