Shri Ganeshay Namah


Narad Uvaach

Sri Narada says:


Pranamy Shirsa Devam Gauri Putram Vinayakam

Bhaktavasam Smarennityam Aayuhkamartha Siddhaye

With head bowed, let me unceasingly worship in my mind the god Vinayaka, the son of Gauri, the refuge of his devotees, for the complete attainment of longevity, amorous desires and wealth.


Prathamam Vakratundam Cha Ekdantam Dwitiyakam

Trutiyam Krishna Pingaksham Gajvaktram Chaturthakam

Firstly, as the one with the twisted trunk. Secondly, as the one with the single tusk.

Thirdly, as the one with the fawn colored eyes. Fourthly, as the one with the elephants mouth,


Lambodaram Pancha Mancha Shastham Vikatameva Cha

Saptamam Vighnarajendram Dhoomravarnam Tathaashtamam

Fifthly, as the pot-bellied one, Sixthly, as the monstrous one,

Seventhly, as the king of obstacles, Eighthly, as the smoke colored one


Navamam Bhalchandram Cha Dashamam Tu Vinayakam

Ekadasham Ganpatim Dwadasham Tu Gajananam

Ninthly, as the moon crested one, Tenthly, as the remover of hindrances,

Eleventhly, as the Lord of the hordes, Twelfthly, as the one with the elephants face.


Dwadashaitani Namani Trisandhyam Yah Pathennarah

Na Cha Vighnabhyam Tasya Sarvasiddhikaram Prabho

Whosoever repeats these twelve names at dawn, noon and sunset, for him there is no fear of failure, nay, there is constant good fortune.


Vidyarthi Labhte Vidyam Dhanarthi Labhte Dhanam

Putrarthi Labhte Putranmoksharthi Labhte Gatim

He who desires knowledge obtains knowledge. He who desires sons gets sons. He who desires salvation obtains the way.


Japet Ganpati Stotram Shadbhairmasaihi Phalam Labhet

Samvatsaren Siddhim Cha Labhte Natra Sanshayah

Whosoever mutters the hymn to Ganapati reaches his aim in six months, and in a year reaches perfection, on this point there is no doubt.


Ashtabhyo Brahmanebhyascha Likhitwayah Samarpayet

Tasya Vidya Bhavetsarva Ganeshasya Prasadatah

Whosoever makes eight copies of it, and has them distributed to as many brahmans, he reaches knowledge instantaneously, by the grace of Ganesh.
