O Lord with curved trunk (ganEsA), who shines with the brilliance of a million suns, please remove all obstacles from my path, and fulfill all my endevors.

He who has the mouse as his vAhana (vehicle),
He who always has a mOdhakam (sweet) in his hand
He who has ears that resemble a hand held fan,
He who wears a chain-like ornament around his waist,
He who is short in stature,
He who is the son of mahEshvarA,
vinAyaka, remover of all obstacles,
I worship your divine feet.
