TRANSLATION:-


I prostrate before Lord Vinayaka who holds modaka in his hand with great joy, who bestows salvation, who wears the moon as a crown on his head, who is the sole leader of those who have no leaders, who destroyed the elephant demon named Gajasura, and who quickly destroys the sins of those who bow down to HIM.


I resort to that Lord continuously who is frightening to those who are not his devotees, who shines like the rising sun, to whom all the Gods and demons bow, who removes the great distress of his his devotees, and who is the Best among the best.


I bow down to the shining Ganapathi who brings happiness to all the worlds, who destroyed the demon Gajasura, who has a big belly, beautiful elephant face, who in Immortal, who gives mercy, forgiveness and hapiness to those who bow to Him, and who bestows ame and a well-disposed mind.


I worship the ancient elephant god who destroys the pains of the poor, who is the abode of "Om", who is the irst son of Lord Shiva (destroyer of the Triple Cities), who destroys the pride of the enemies of the Gods, who is frightening to look at during the time of the world's destruction, who is fierce like an elephant in rut, and who wears Dhananjaya and other serpants as his ornaments.


I constantly feflect upon that single-tusked god only, whose lustrous tusk is very beautiful, who is the son of Lord Shiva the god of death, whose form is immortal and unknowable, who tears all obstacles, and who dwells forever in the hearts of the yogis.


He who recites every morning, with devotion, these five gems about Lord Ganapathi, and who remembers in his heart the great Ganesha, will soon be endowed with a healthy life, ree o all blemishes, will obtain learning, good sons, longevity and spiritual and material prosperity.
