Ucchista Ganapati Upasana / Puja Proecedure

Ucchista Ganapati Upasana / Puja
In SrIvidyArNava tantra by Sri vidyAraNya, It is clearly mentioned
that the ucciSta gaNapati upAsana will be effective only by the vAmAcAra
When any one approaches his guru for the first time, his intention
would be in pursuit of the supreme god and mOkSha.
The guru who is " swrUpa nirUpaNa hEtuh " is initiating with a mantra of some
dEvata or dEva. This is because one should not/can not say any thing about
god in an establishing voice.
" kaula pratiShTam na kuryAt "
Even in the books like " soundarya lahari " , the way to emancipation
was nerrated with slOkas like " muKam bindum kritwa " , " naram varSIyamsam " .
They appear like mAdana prayOgAs to attract women. Is it the advice of
who himself is a staunch sanyAsi, for a Sishya who approaches him to show
him the way for liberation?
Instead of trying to understand the inner objective of the guru,
he is opting to master the texts, and bring out the materialistic
benefits.like a mad man gathering all the useless stuff seen on the
roadside, thinking it so precious.
My guru was telling " what ever is written in the scripture, even by
any great sage, it would be only vAmAcara mehod.
It is you to search for the meaning which reminds you about your own
'swarUpa'. All the mantras are the reminders of your own swrUpa. If you
take materialistic meaning, even the nArAyaNa mantra or the siva mantra will
never save you from the present state of misery, but throws you in to the
ditch of samsAra,
" SR^iNyEva sitayA viswa carShaNih
pASEna pratibadhnAtyabhIkAn | iShuBhih pancaBhir dhanShEna|
viddhatyAdiSaktir aruNAca viswajanyA || "
I dont understand how can any other god can give any one the
'mOkSha', when there is Siva and nArayaNa who are considered to be the sole
distributors of mOkSha?
" sahasram vartantE jagati vibudhAh kSudra phaladah
na manyE swpnE vA tadanusaraNam tatkR^ita Palam || "
Please don't believe any of these gods. They will always be saying
nonsensical promises. Trash every thing.

rigid anushtanas of niyamas.not everyone can take up this sadhana. a guru will
only iniciate this to a sadhaka who has completed purascharana of sri vidya
mantras and who is free from material desires ( really pure ) and longs for
liberation.the sadhaka must not have even the slightest kalmasha in himself.
the ultimate goal of uchista ganapathi is the renouncement of material desires
(even siddhis) and attainment of brahma sayujya.
the form of uchista ganapathi is often misinterpreted .it is the manifestation
of the highest yogic order and only to be known under the guidance of a guru.
do not do this sadhana without a guru's guidance as it will bring negative
effects. when u meddle with a powerful energy u need to have a preceptor who
could guide and teach the appropriate way to handle it. even when u do mistakes
unknowingly the guru's shakti will shield the sadhaka from the side effects.
dont do sadhana for the sake of siddhi.this is a great obstacle in sadhana .

Dear Members - where can I find the Puja and Upasana procedures for
Ucchista Ganapati. I heard from some Sri Vidya Upasakas that the
worship of Ucchista Ganapati is an important aspect. Also I have heard
from some that it is the only way to Moksha. Also I heard that one
gets rare Siddhis with such Upasana and also one has to strictly
adhere to procedures.

vedAnta color(even when there is absolutely no relation) and give a
mystic touch(Madame Blavatsky's/Theosophical Society's influence?) so
to speak. This compulsion to come up with vedAntic interpretations for
everything may be partially because of Christian/British influence as
Shri Gopal Gopinath noted. A parallel outcome of this influence is
subtle aversion to anything tAntric, even though a great
part(including some if not all vAmAchAra rituals) of tAntric
rituals/procedures were derived from veda-s.

The u. gaNesha worship originally has its origins with gANapatya-s.
Please see the following note by a acquaintance of mine. Notes in
bracket are mine.
" The next great Acharya of the sect(gANapatya sect) was herambasuta,
who founded the heterodox vAmAchara cult of gaNapati worship. They
worship the form of gaNapati termed ucchiShTa gaNapati. He is mediated
in a form, which may be viewed by many uninitiated modern Hindus and
others as being very obscene. "
Apparently these are not shrIvidya upAsaka-s but worship u.gaNesha.
So where does the shrIvidya requirement come from?
Please also observe the following post closely(**especially the last

If mokSha is what the sAdhaka desires there is no need to go this far
and he has better things to do. Ex: Studying the shankara bhAShya-s
and doing some serious AtmavichAra.
Hence above statements are inaccurate IMHO.
One doesn't need to specifically worship u.gaNesha to achieve mokSha.
> dont do sadhana for the sake of siddhi.this is a great obstacle in
Cannot agree more on this. If one does purashcharaNa of mahAmantra-s
with the intent enjoying the benefit of siddhi-s, it doesn't lead
