Ganapati Upanishad

Ganapati Upanishad is a late Upanishadic text that asserts that Ganesha is the same as the ultimate reality, Brahman. The text is attached to the Atharvaveda, The text exists in several variants, but with the same message. Ganesha is described to be same as other gods, as ultimate truth and reality (Brahman), as Satcitananda, as the soul in oneself (Atman) and in every living being, as Om. The scripture asserts its own status as an Upanishad in its final line, which reads “Thus, the Śrī Gaṇapati Atharvaśīrsa Upanishad“.
