એકદન્તં મહાકાયં તપ્તકાઞ્ચનસન્નિભમ્ ।
લમ્બોદરં વિશાલાક્ષં વન્દેઽહં ગણનાયકમ્ ॥ ૧॥
મૌઞ્જીકૃષ્ણાજિનધરં નાગયજ્ઞોપવીતિનમ્ ।
બાલેન્દુસુકલામૌલિં વન્દેઽહં ગણનાયકમ્ ॥ ૨॥
અમ્બિકાહૃદયાનન્દં માતૃભિઃ પરિવેષ્ટિતમ્ ।
ભક્તિપ્રિયં મદોન્મત્તં વન્દેઽહં ગણનાયકમ્ ॥ ૩॥
ચિત્રરત્નવિચિત્રાઙ્ગં ચિત્રમાલાવિભૂષિતમ્ ।

યોદ્ધુકામં મહાવીર્યં વન્દેઽહં ગણનાયકમ્ ॥ ૫॥
સ્તૂયમાનં મહાબાહું વન્દેઽહં ગણનાયકમ્ ॥ ૬॥
સર્વવિઘ્નહરં દેવં સર્વવિઘ્નવિવર્જિતમ્ ।
સર્વસિદ્ધિપ્રદાતારં વન્દેઽહં ગણનાયકમ્ ॥ ૮॥
ગણાષ્ટકમિદં પુણ્યં યઃ પઠે સતતં નરઃ
સિદ્ધ્યન્તિ સર્વકાર્યાણિ વિદ્યાવાન્ ધનવાન્ ભવેત્ ॥
ઇતિ શ્રીગણનાયકાષ્ટકં સમ્પૂર્ણમ્ ।
