bronze-dancing-ganeshThis is the dancing form of Ganesha and the meditation etc, visualize Ganesha in a rather jovial, compromising mood. Ucchista Ganesha is worshiped to remove domestic disharmony and the relationship with spouse is improved. All sorts of troubles with in-laws etc vanish and the family gets together and lives happily. For the last two decades we have advised the placing of a statue of dancing Ganesha (idol) near the headstand of the bed and the relationship between couples has improved. Marriages which were on the verge of breakdown have smoothed out in a most miraculous manner.

Sit facing east wearing clean clothes with an image or idol of dancing Ganesha in front. Light lamp, incense, offer some sweets and water.

वाहन मन्त्र vāhana mantra
This mantra is for the mouse on which Ganesha rides. Saturn represents sin and the mouse represents Lord Yama, the god of death, who drags souls to the netherworld (narka) to be punished for their sins. To overcome sins, Yama was turned into a mouse and had to carry Ganesha around the world. Thereby his sins were dissolved. All human beings suffer due to sins of past karma. To overcome them, they too must become like the mouse and carry Ganesha around the world (temple of Lord Shiva and Shakti i.e. Shiva Linga). Reciting this mantra circumbulate the Shiva Linga, prayer place or temple three times (at least) carrying the idol of Ganesha.

ॐ मं मूषिकायै गणाधिपवाहनाय धर्मराजाय स्वाहा।
om maṁ mūṣikāyai gaṇādhipavāhanāya dharmarājāya svāhā|

Meaning of mantra
Meaning of the mantra is revealed at the time of initiation of the mantra by the appropriate Guru. However, a discussion on this subject had occured and we reproduce relevant extracts of the letters that will bring out the meaning of the mantra.
First try to understand the dual role of Ketu in any chart, especially when Ketu is placed in the 12th house. In simple words, MARRIAGE IS A CURSE. Now, you have already seen how this has befallen your destiny, not once but more than that. So, when you come to me, I have to give results, and in this terrible Kali Yuga, I will not advise you to fall at the feet of your spouse or any other lady, but will teach you to fight strong. There is a nice saying “all’s fair in love and war”, and so, I gave you this mantra for ending war and bringing some peace at home. The house which would seem like a haunted house with the in-laws becoming out-laws needs to be first cleared of all demonesses and evils that possess your spouses, not once but again and again. The present action has shown that Ketu has again proved to be stronger in the 12th and its other role of ‘kulasya unnatim’ or continuity of lineage has been forgotten. Ketu indicates that a mistake shall be made and that is how the upadesa (advise) is lost.
In fact the dhyana for the mantra is far more interesting and has something to do with marriage, sexuality etc. You can read this from mantra-mahodadhih as I am not going to teach you that. Perhaps it is a prayer to the delighted and happy Ganapati who has just got married (to help you also in the same manner) write (or rewrite) your destiny with some sweetness and the fragrance of love and affection; perhaps it is also a prayer to drive away the demoness(es) called Pisachi’s which possess a woman in her periods so that you may not have to face their wrath…perhaps. hasti refers to the elephant headed Ganesha.
Pisacha, as used in the Veda refers to a class of demons that cause PASSION and ignis fatuus. They were classified along with the Asuras or those who control the actions AT NIGHT. Pisachi is a kind of SHE-DEVIL that has a great fondness for fighting and picking fights at the slightest pretext. Now, all these hints should tell you what the mantra aims at. All marriages and relationships have quarrels, and they can be quite passionate!
While the word ‘Likhe’ is quite well known to all and sundry as meaning to scratch or write, what is of less knowledge is its meaning of ‘Uniting with a female’ or its meaning of coming together of heavenly bodies. Perhaps it is a mantra to unite an elephant headed person who refuses to budge from his tapasya with a female whose anger and passion are impossible to control. In any case it is an excellent mantra to ensure conjugal bliss.
We have been recommending this mantra along with a dancing Ganesha at the headstand (near bed) for removing all blemishes caused by Ketu in married life.
