The one who is victorious and has the color of his body as Krishna varnam (smoke-hued) and who uses snake as yagnopaveet (janeu; a holy thread that is tied around the belly). The one who has a waxing moon on his head, I bow to you the leader of the ganas.
The one who makes a picture perfect pose, who has a garland adorning around his neck and who takes the form of Kama Roop (the form which is immensely attractive), I bow to you the leader of ganas.
The one who has a face of an elephant and still considered the best, who is beautifully adorned with karnchamra (cowrie, which is used as an ornament for the ear of an elephant) and who holds Pashan and Kusha (weapons used in war), I bow to the leader of the ganas.
The one who uses mushika (mouse) as his chariot, the one who is prayed by everyone and the one who is a mahaveer (extremely brave), I bow to that Lord Ganesha.
The one to whom yaksha, kinnera and gandharva (semi-Gods) pray, who is the one who has the vidya (teachings) to acquire Siddhi (opulence), whose stuti (prayers) people sing by heart and who has strong arms, I bow to the leader of the ganas.
The one who is dear to the mother, who is always at mother’s service, who is dear to his devotees and who ends the wars, I bow to the leader of the ganas.
The Lord who takes all our problems, who diminished all the obstacles and problems coming our way and the one who gives all types of Siddhi (opulence), I bow to the leader of the ganas.
