Sri Ganesha Sthuthi

Srikãntho Mãthulo Yasya Jananee Sarva Mangalã |

Janakaha Shankaro Devaha Tam Vande' Kunjarãnanam ||

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 Mahãkãya Sooryakoti Samprabha |
Avignam Kuru Me' Deva, Sarva Kãryesu Sarvadhã ||
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!
 
   
 

Sri Prasanna Vinayagar [Sri Ganesha]

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.
