SHREE GANESH PRAYERS

Gajaananam bhoot-gan-aadi sevitam
Kapittha jamboo phal saarbhakshinam
Uma sutam shok vinaash kaaranam
Namaami Vighneshwar paad pang kajam

Pray to the lotus feet of Vighneshwar, the remover of obstacles, the elephant headed lord of ‘bhutas’ and ‘ganas’, who partakes in the essence of ‘kapittha’ and ‘jamboo’ fruits, who is the son of Uma and who removes the suffering of His devotees.

Lambodar namastubhyam, satatam modak priya
Nirvighnam kuroo may deva, sarv kaaryeshu sarvadaa

We bow to Ganeshji, the beloved of his devotees. He is the remover of all obstacles and impediments and the bestower of all forms of success.

Ganesh putram brigu bhaika patram
Sadaa pavitram bilasaat patram
Dannay samatrang Vina-yatra
Patram Shiva Kalaram Grisham Namamee

Om Somukha shika dang tash Kapi loak
Gajkaranee kaam Lambo daras shabigato
Biganaasho vinaayka Dhumra kayto ganaa Daksho
Baalachandro Gajananaa.

Dwaadashay taani na maami yah paatay suniyaa dapay
Vidya Rambay biwashtay prawayshay nigramay tatta
Om Shuklang baradanang dewangshashi
Varanam chatur bhujam prashan baranang Sarva bingno pashantay
