Immense Benefits of Ganapati Atharvashirsha

In this post, I have described the importance and the immense benefits of the Ganapati Atharvashirsha in removing self-doubt, mental insatiability and inability to concentrate or focus upon anything. People having fickle or volatile minds can find the Ganapati Atharvashirsha very useful in making their minds calm and composed.

The Ganapati Atharvashirsha is a most ancient Vedic Prarthana, which is dedicated to Shri Ganesha as the Ever-Existent One, the One who is sum total of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. By reciting the Ganapati Atharvashirsha, the practitioner practices the highest kind of Meditation on the Supreme Reality, symbolized by Shri Gaanesha.

It is a tried and tested prayer for removing all kinds of Klesh, which in the context of this post means not only physical and mental strife, obstacles, discomfort and problems, but also ignorance and fear.

In short, the dedicated chanting of the Ganapati Atharvashirsha will remove all kinds of poison from the system and replace it with mental stability, peace and auspiciousness. Prosperity and material benefits are also some of the by-products of this Prarthana.

People having Paap Graha like Rahu, Ketu or Shani along with or conjoined the Moon in their Kundali can find the regular recitation of the Ganapati Atharvashirsha very useful.

This Prarthana is also recommended for people showing symptoms of madness, delusions and extreme paranoia. Such people can overcome these problems with the regular practice of this Prarthana.

The Ganapati Atharvashirsha can also be very useful for those students who have lost interest in their studies or who are unable to concentrate upon anything for long because their minds starts wavering and irrelevant thoughts keep on entering their minds.

 Ganesh Mantra ॐ गं गणपतये नमः - Om Gan Ganapataye Namah

Best way to chant the Ganapati Atharvashirsha:

Sit down comfortably and recite the Ganapati Atharvashirsha, once daily, there is no need to perform any special Puja-Vidhi.

It is recommended that the Ganapati Atharvashirsha should be recited 21 times, in the evening on the auspicious day of Sankashti Chaturthi, every month.

Along with the regular recitation of the Ganapati Atharvashirsha, chanting the Ganesh Mantra- ॐ गं गणपतये नमः - Om Gan Ganapataye Namah, can also prove to be most beneficial.

Note- If a woman is doing this Sadhana, she should take care to avoid doing it during her Monthly Cycle.


  1. English language pls translate

  2. One mala of red sandal wood or just omce and what should be the diet and is it benificial to mantain brahmacharya ...thank u sir

  3. After reading the atharvshirsha is it necessary to read its benefits also

  4. Why avoid during monthly cycle? God only has created this "monthly cycle", right?

    1. The thing is it may affect a woman in an undesired way during menstrual period. As menstrual cycle causes changes in a woman's body, the effect of stotra may be undesired. Though, one can't force you to not to chant. So you may try!

    2. Yeah it's may be right ! But I think god created a women's cycle , so it's a wonderful gift , and by praying to God in periods she got happiness and destress they why should not she ?

  5. There are some rules and regulations from anicient time. during monthly cycle some surroundings become impure and ladies wants rest as lot of hempglobin becomes outwards from body. Not during only montly cycles, no holy prayers should be offred during urin or stool pass ,bath room ,toilet room even thogh it is also made by God. Hopefully, it is clear now for the women who makes undue arguements.

  6. Mr Joshi, I agree things could have been unhygienic in ancient times, but now the hygiene around periods has improved immensely. Even then, this is no reason to stop women from praying outside of passing stool or urine. These are not undue arguments. It hurts and we help helpless if we get periods during important festival and are not able to celebrate it properly. We are anything but impure during the “monthly cycles”.

    1. Another aspect that I came across and maybe more women should true investigate and explore it. a) Women are "Shakti" during their monthly cycle, they tend to get "more powerful". So the Religious leaders did not want them to be strong so came up with "hygiene" excuse. b) The Ancient traditions and true knowledge of scripture where women performed meditation/yoga. Allowed them to avoid having "menstrual cycle every month" and they chose to have it only when they decided to conceive other times they simply did not have them............. Ancient Indian seers are tarnished by the so called "modern educated" who have not explored the depths of the culture themselves. Thank you.
