What does this mantra mean?

Love & beauty, clear perception, powerful energy and stability. Primal seed, Ganesha, bless me. Help me steady my thoughts and emotions.

Here’s a nice rendition: https://youtu.be/gbtyiIE0ddI

Japa is the repetition of mantra. Mantras can help stabilize the mind. The most power medicine attained from a mantra is knowing the meaning and sharing the mantra silently to yourself (once you learn it).

Repeat the mantra and allow space between each revolution. Pay attention (witness consciousness) to the silence in the space. Being the witness of the silence brings us closer to our essential nature as love.

Offering japa, repetitive mantra, would be one of the practices associated with Upasana Yoga, which along with Karma Yoga and Jnana Yoga, are the three primary yogas of traditional Vedanta. Bhakti, or devotion, is not considered a separate yoga as it an important part of the three karma, upasana and jnana yogas.
