Srikantho Mathulo Yasya Jananee Sarva Mangalaa |
Janakaha Sankaro Devaha Tam Vande' Kunjaraananam ||

He for whom Lord Vishnu is the Uncle,
Whose mother is the Universal auspicious one, Parvathi,
Whose father is Lord Mahaa Deva, to Him the Omkaara Faced One,
Sri Ganesha, I am doing the salutations.

Vakrathunda Mahaakaaya Sooryakoti Samaprabha,
Avighnam Kuru Me' Deva, Sarva Kaaryesu Sarvadhaa.

You, of the twisted trunk and the massive body,
With the dazzle and light of millions of suns;
Lead me on a path that has no obstacles nor hindrances
Clearing the way in all that I do, ever, and always!

Suklaambaratharam Vishnum Sasivarnam Chaturbujam,
Prasanna Vadhanam Dhayaye't Sarva Vighnopa Santhaye'.

Mooshiga Vaahana Modhaka Hastha -
Saamara Karna Vilambitha Soothra
Vaamana Roopa Maheswara Puthra -
Vighna Vinayaka Paadha Namaste'.

Agajaanana Padmaarkam Gajaananam Adharnisam,
Ane'kadantam Bhakthaanam Ekadandham Upaasmahe'.

Gajaananam Bhuta Ganadhi Sevitam,
Kapiththa Jambu Phala Saara Bhaksitham
Umasutham Soka Vinaasa Kaaranam
Namaami Vighneswara Paadapankajam.

Sri Ganesha - on Sri Prasanna Vinayagar of Pearland, Texas
Prasanna Vinaayakam Dhe'vam; Pe'rivana Pura Samsthitham |
Sarva Vigna Haram Nithyam; Vandhe' Sri Kunjaraananam. ||
O, Lord Sri Prasanna Vinayagam, who lives in His Temple in Pearland;
The one who will remove all obstacles for all His Devotees at all times;
One who has the Omkara face of the elephant, I pray to Him.
