Connection of Naga and Ganesha

A doti is used as clothing in worship as it is one piece and has no stitches. It is ONE piece of fabric. Think about what stitches are?

Like a snake around Shivas neck.

Naga – is the Sanskrit and Pāli word for a deity or class of entity or being, taking the form of a very great snake, found in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism.

They are protecting, the kundalini is a naga. Sarpas are the negative.

Ga is darkness, Na is negation. = No darkness.

Gana = remover of darkness

Ganapati = Ganesha

Gana means count, categories, 1, 2, 3, 4,

When you learned how to count you took a promise to remove darkness from your life. it is the greatest blessing in your life. it is the blessing of Ganesha.

If you did not know how to count how would you have any knowledge at all? Everything has a count. A category.

Shiva says, “Thank he who first gives the first step to remove ignorance.” This is why Ganesha is always worshiped first before anything else.
