Book Summary of 99 Thoughts On Ganesha

In the game of cricket, having scored 99 runs, when a bats-man stands poised on the threshold of that much coveted century, he experiences the moment that is best associated with Ganesha.

Fear and uncertainty envelope him; between him and his achievement stand hurdles, both real and imaginary: a possible spin from the bowler can overwhelm him, his own anxiety can paralyze him, cheering fans can distract him. He needs divine intervention then. He needs to focus, get rid of all hurdles, perform, get the final run, and achieve what he so longs for. In other words, he needs to think of Ganapati.

This book brings together 99 meditations to better understand the stories, symbols and rituals of that adore-able elephant-headed Hindu god who removes hurdles and brings prosperity and peace. Known variously as Ganapati, Gajanana, Vinayaka or Pillayar, he can help all of us score a century in the game called life.

Jithin September 13, 2015 review from Goodreads

Everyone knows the story of Ganesha, at least that what is shown in TV shows and other folk stories.

This review first appeared at (my blog) . Ganesha, Sanatana DharmaĆ¢??s elephant headed deity is loved by many. Some like him as he is the one who removes obstacles, Some worship him as the manifestation of the Parabrahman, most of us as kids would have just...

Bharath September 19, 2015 review from Goodreads

This is a small and quick read. There are some nice illustrations of Ganesha along with a thought. While it is interesting to read these thoughts categorized by history, belief, scripture etc, some of the more interesting thoughts could have been expanded further. Nevertheless, still a worthwhile...

Swateek August 12, 2015 review from Goodreads

A lovely compilation by the master story teller, will make you fall in love with Ganesha. The 99 thoughts were quick and it was easy to relate to many of them. He does confuse you with too much information, like saying if Shakti is the mother or wife of Ganesha, but that's not a bad thing. It's a...
