    Eka Dantha Stotram

    There are several stories about how Lord Ganapathi lost one of his tusks. One of them says that he broke one of his tusks and used it to kill Gajamukhasura. Another says that when Veda Vyasa requested him to write Mahabaratha, he broke one of his tusks and used it as a pen to write the story on rock. Yet another one says, that once he had to fight with Lord Parasurama and he lost it during the war.

    Madhasuram sushantham vai,
    Drushtwa Vishnu mukha suraa,
    Bruguvadayascha munaya,
    Ekadantham samayaya. 1

    Vishnu and other Gods,
    And Brugu and other saints,
    Seeing the peaceful Madhasura,
    Approached Eka Dantha.

    Pranamya tham prapoojayadhou,
    Punastham nemuradharath,
    Thushtuvur harsha samyuktha,
    Eka dantham Ganeshwaram. 2

    They first worshipped,
    That Ekadantha who is the leader of all Ganas,
    Then saluted him
    And with happiness sang his praise.

    Sadathma roopam Sakaladhibhootha,
    Mamayinam soham achinthya bodham,
    Aanadhi vidhyantha viheenam ekam,
    Thamekadantham saranam vrajama. 3

    We seek protection of that Ekadantha,
    Who has the form of the soul,
    Who was born before all beings,
    Who is beyond all words, thoughts and perception,
    And who does not have either beginning, middle or end.

    Ananta chidroopamayam Ganesam,
    Hya bhedha Bhedhadhi viheenamaadhyam,
    Hrudhi prakasasya dhuram Sudheestham,
    Thamekadantham saranam vrajama. 4

    We seek protection of that Ekadantha,
    Who is Ganesa with an endless holy form,
    Who is beyond similarities and differences,
    Who is the first among all beings,
    And who shines at the end of the soul.

    Viswadhibhootham hrudhi yoginaam vai,
    Prathyaksha roopena vibhantha mekam,
    Sada niralamba Samadhi gamyam,
    Thamekadantham saranam vrajama. 5

    We seek protection of that Ekadantha,
    Who shines in the minds of Yogis,
    As the eternal primeval truth,
    Who is not dependent on anything at any time,
    And who can be attained only through meditation.

    Swa bimba bhavena vilasa yuktham,
    Bindu swaroopaa rachitha swamaya,
    Tasyam swaveeryam pradahadhathi yo vai,
    Thamekadantham saranam vrajama. 6

    We seek protection of that Ekadantha,
    Who creates playfully his shadow,
    Into a Bindu(dot) through illusion,
    And gives it the root of his power.

    Twadeeya veeryena samartha bhootha,
    Maya thaya sancharitham cha viswam,
    Nadathmakam hya athma thaya praneetham,
    Thamekadantham saranam vrajama. 7

    We seek protection of that Ekadantha,
    Who is the soul of the sound,
    Who is known through the knowledge of the soul,
    And who through his innate power makes,
    The illusion capable of creating the world.

    Twadeeya satha dhara meka dantham,
    Ganesamekam traya bodhi tharam,
    Sevanthamaapusthamajam trisamstham,
    Thamekadantham saranam vrajama. 8

    We seek protection of that Ekadantha,
    Who carries his truth within him,
    Who is the only one with a single tusk,
    Who has the state of three perceptions,
    Who is one and only one Ganesa,
    Who is fit to be worshipped,
    Who is without birth,
    And to whom creation, upkeep and destruction bows down.

    Thath swaya preritha evanadha,
    Sthenedhamevam rachitham jagadwai,
    Ananda roopam sama bhava samstha,
    Thamekadantham saranam vrajama. 9

    We seek protection of that Ekadantha,
    Because from him the sound originated,
    And from that this world was created,
    And also since he is the personification of joy,
    And he is the one who does not take sides.

    Thadeva viswam krupaya thadaiva,
    Sambhootha maadhyam thamasa vibhatham,
    Anekaroopam hyajameka bootham,
    Thamekadantham saranam vrajama. 10

    We seek protection of that Ekadantha,
    Because this world which took shape by his grace,
    Was filled with darkness in the beginning,
    And also because he was capable of taking many shapes,
    And was complete within himself every day.

    Thathasthwaya prerithamevathena,
    Srushtam susookshmam jagadheka samstham,
    Sathwathmakam swethamananthamadhyam,
    Thamekadantham saranam vrajama. 11

    We seek protection of that Ekadantha,
    Because of his will the sound originated again,
    And the micro world took its shape,
    And also because he is the shape of the truth,
    And he is white and without beginning and end.

    Thadeva swapnam thamsa Ganesa,
    Samsidhi roopam vividham bhabhoova,
    Sadhekaroopam krupaa thavaapi,
    Thamekadantham saranam vrajama. 12

    We seek protection of that Ekadantha,
    Because from that darkness which was ignorance,
    The varied and different parts of the world took shape ,
    And also because he has a single form,
    And is stable in his mercy.

    Evam cha srushtwa prakuthi svabhava,
    Thadhanthare twam cha vibhasi nithyam,
    Budhi pradatha gana natha eka,
    Thamekadantham saranam vrajama. 13

    We seek protection of that Ekadantha,
    Because he perennially lives in that world ,
    Which was thus created by the conduct of nature,
    And because he is the giver of intelligence,
    And chief of the army of Lord Shiva.

    Thwadagnaya bhahi gruhascha sarve .
    Nakshatra roopani Vibhanthi khe vai,
    Aadhara heenani thwaya dhruthani,
    Thamekadantham saranam vrajama. 14

    We seek protection of that Ekadantha,
    Because it is as per his order,
    That the stars and planets shine in the sky,
    And he gives them , who appear as if without support,
    The necessary support by wearing them.

    Thwadagnaya srushtikaro Vidatha,
    Thwadagnaya palaka eva Vishnu,
    Thwadagnaya samharadhaka haropi,
    Thamekadantham saranam vrajama. 15

    We seek protection of that Ekadantha,
    Because it is as per his order that Brahma creates,
    Lord Vishnu looks after those created,
    And Lord Shiva destroys them at he final deluge.

    Yadagnaya bhoor jala Madhya samstha,
    Yadagnaya apat pravahnathi nadhya,
    Seemam sada rakshathi vai samudhra,
    Thamekadantham saranam vrajama. 16

    We seek protection of that Ekadantha,
    Because it was due to his orders,
    That the earth is in the middle of ocean
    Water flows as rivers.
    And the ocean does not cross its own shores.

    Yadagnaya deva gano divistho,
    Dadathi vai karma phalani nithyam,
    Yadagnaya shaila gano achalo vai,
    Thamekadantham saranam vrajama. 17

    We seek protection of that Ekadantha,
    Because it was due too his order devas live in heaven,
    And give the rewards for duties performed daily in the earth,
    And the mountain ranges stand stable

    Yadagnaya sesha iladharo vai ,
    Yadagnaya mohakarascha kama,
    Yadagnaya Kaaladharo aaramya cha,
    Thamekadantham saranam vrajama.18

    We seek protection of that Ekadantha,
    Because it was due to his order,
    That Adhi sesha carries the earth,

    And the Lord Sun controls the passing of time.

    Yadagnaya vaathi vibhathi vayu,
    Yadagnaya agnir jataradhi samshta,
    Yadagnaya vai sacharacharam cha,
    Thamekadantham saranam vrajama. 19

    We seek protection of that Ekadantha,
    Because it was due to his order,
    That the wind blows,
    The fire lives in the belly of beings,
    And the movable and immovable exist.

    Sarvanthare samsthitha meka gudam,
    Yadagnaya sarvamidham vibhathi,
    Anantha roopam hrudhi bhodakam vai,
    Thamekadantham saranam vrajama. 20

    We seek protection of that Ekadantha,
    Because it was due to his order,
    That the world we see exists and shines,
    And he shines in the heart of beings,
    And exists in his limitless majesty.

    Eva mukthwa cha the deva,
    Munayascha samuchakai,
    Thooshneem bhavam prabadyava,
    Na nruthur harsha samyutha. 21

    Thus praying him,
    The devas and sages,
    Were silent for some time,
    And then danced with ecstasy.

    Sathanuvacha santhushato,
    Hyeka danthena sthavena vai,
    Jagaadahan maha bhaagan,
    Devrusheen bhaktha vatsala. 22

    Being pleased with these songs of praise,
    Lord Ekadantha who is partial to his devotees,
    Told those great devas and sages as follows.

    Prasannosmi cha stotrena,
    Sura sarshi gana kila,
    Vrunutha varadhoham vo,
    Dasyami manaseepsidham. 23

    “Hey sages and devas,
    I am pleased with your song of praise,
    Please ask me what you want,
    And I who am the boon giver,
    Would fulfill your wishes.”

    Bhavath krutham madheeyam vai,
    Stotram preethi pradham mama,
    Bhavishyathi na sandheha,
    Sarva sidhi pradhayakam. 24

    “There is no doubt,
    That this song of praise,
    Which is about me,
    And which is dear to me,
    Would grant you all powers.”

    Yam yam ichitham tham vai,
    Dasyami stotra paatatha,
    Puthra pouthradhikam sarvam,
    Labhathe dana danyakam. 25

    “Through this song of praise,
    I would grant the devotees,
    Whatever they wish,
    And bless them with sons,
    Grand sons, wealth and grain.”

    Phala sruthi

    Nithyam ya patathe stotram,
    Brahma bhootha sa vai nama,
    Tasya darsanatha sarve,
    Devaa, pootha bhavanthi vai. 26

    Narration of results

    The one who recites this song daily,
    Would become at the end , the Brahmam,
    And all devas would get purified,
    On seeing him once.

  • Sankata Nasana Ganapati Stotram
    [Prayer to Lord Ganesa which would wipe away sorrow]
    From Narada Purana

    Narada Uvacha:-
    Sage Narada told:

    Pranamya sirasa devam,
    Gauri putram, Vinayakam,
    Bhakthya vyasa smaren nithya,
    Mayu kama artha sidhaye.

    The learned one, who wishes,
    For more life, wealth and love,
    Should salute with his head,
    Lord Ganapathi who is the son of Parvathy.

    Prathamam Vakra thundam cha,
    Ekadantham dveethiyakam,
    Trithiyam Krishna pingalaksham,
    Gajavakthram Chathurthakam.

    Think him first as god with broken tusk,
    Second as the God with one tusk,
    Third as the one with reddish black eyes,
    Fourth as the one who has the face of an elephant.

    Lambhodaram panchamam cha,
    Sashtam Vikatameva cha,
    Sapthamam Vignarajam cha,
    Dhoomra varnam thadashtamam.

    Fifth as the one who has a very broad paunch,
    Sixth as the one who is cruel to his enemies,
    Seventh as the one who is remover of obstacles,
    Eighth as the one who is of the colour of smoke.

    Navamam phala chandram cha,
    Dasamam thu Vinayakam,
    Ekadasam Ganapathim,
    Dwadasam the gajananam.

    Ninth as the one who crescent in his forehead,
    Tenth as the one, who is the leader of remover of obstacles,
    Eleventh as the leader of the army of Lord Shiva,
    And twelfth as the one who has the face of an elephant.

    Dwathasaithani namani,
    Trisandhyam ya paden nara,
    Na cha vigna bhayam thasya,
    Sarva sidhi karam dhruvam.

    Any one reading these twelve names,
    At dawn, noon and dusk,
    Will never have fear of defeat,
    And would always achieve whatever he wants.

    Vidyarthi labhadhe vidhyam,
    Danarthi labhathe danam,
    Puthrarthi labhathe puthran,
    Moksharthi labhathe gatheem.

    One who pursues education will get knowledge,
    One who wants to earn money will get money,
    One who wishes for a son, will get a son,
    And one who wants salvation will get salvation.

    Japeth Ganapathi sthothram,
    Shadbhir masai phalam labeth,
    Samvatsarena sidhim cha,
    Labhathe nathra samsaya.

    Results of chanting this prayer,
    Of Ganapathi will be got within six months,
    And within a year, he would get all wishes fulfilled,
    And there is no doubt about this.

    Ashtanam Brahmanam cha,
    Likihithwa ya samarpoayeth,
    Thasya Vidhya bhaveth
    Sarvaa ganesasya prasadatha.

    One who gets this prayer,
    Written by Eight Brahmanas,
    And offers it to Lord Ganesa,
    Will become knowledgeable,
    And would be blessed with all stellar qualities,
    By the grace of Lord Ganesa.

    Ithi Sri Narada Purane Samkashta nasanam Ganapathi stotram Sampoornam.

    Thus ends the prayer to Ganesa from Narada Purana which would destroy all sorrows

  • Ganesha Manasa Pooja
    [The Mental Worship of Ganesa]

    [This rare stotra offering worship by mind was found by me in a Malayalam compilation. It is extremely detailed and gives every step of the Puja of Ganesa with great devotion.]

    Vignesa veeryani vichithrakaani,
    Vandhee janair maagadakai smruthani,
    Sruthwa samuthishta gajanana, thwam,
    Brahme jaganmangalakam kurushwa. 1

    After hearing the songs of praise,
    Extolling the heroism of Vignesa,
    From expert singers of yours,
    Oh Gajanana, please wake up
    In the early hours of morn,
    And do good to the world.

    Evam maya prathidha vigna raja,
    Sachithena chothaya bahirganesa,
    Tham nirgatham veekshya namanthi deva,
    Shambwadhayo yogi mukhashtha daham. 2

    Me , the devas and Gods like Shambhu,
    See and bow their heads to the Ganesa,
    Who woke up and came out,
    As a result of my prayers,
    To the God who removes obstacles.

    Souchadhikam they parikalpayami,
    Herambha vai dantha vishudhimevam,
    Vasthrena samprokshya maukharavindam,
    Devam sabhayam vinivesayami. 3

    After mentally doing ablations of the morn,
    Including the cleaning of his teeth,
    I wipe his lotus like face with a cloth,
    And bring the God who is near to Shiva ,
    To the assembly of the devas.

    Dwijadhi sarvairabhi vanditham cha,
    Sukhadhibhir modha sumodhakhadyai,
    Sambhashya chalokya samuthitham tham,
    Sumandapam kalpya nivesayami. 4

    After his being saluted by the twice born,
    And after having him converse with Sukha,
    Modha, Sumodhaka and others,
    When he got up, I lead him with my mind,
    To the pavilion, which I made mentally.

    Rathnai sudeepthai prathibimbhitham tham,
    Pasyami chithena vinayakancha,
    Ththrasanam rathna suvarna yuktham,
    Sankalpya devam vinivesayami. 5

    I see in my mind that Vinayaka,
    As an image shining with gold and gems,
    And I offer him mentally a seat,
    Made of various gems and gold.

    Sidhya cha budhya saha vigna raja,
    Paadhyam kuru prema bharena sarvai,
    Suvasithamneeramadho gruhaana,
    Chithena dathancha sukhoshna bhavam. 6

    Oh God Ganesa who is with Sidhi and Budhi,
    Be pleased to receive this sweet smelling warm water,
    Which has been filled with incense and love,
    Mentally by me to wash your feet.

    Thatha suvasthrena ganesa padhou,
    Samprakshya dhoorvadhibhir archayami,
    Chithena bhava priya, deenabandho,
    Mano vileenam kuruthe padabhje. 7

    Oh friend of the oppressed, I will then,
    With my mind dry your feet with good cloth,
    And worship it with dhoorva grass,
    And place my mind at your lotus feet.

    Karpoora kailadhi suvasi thanthu,
    Sukalpitham thoyamadho grahana,
    Aachamya thenaiva gajanana thwam,
    Krupa kadakshena vilokayasu. 8

    Oh Gajanana, then please receive the water,
    Mixed with camphor and cardamom, which,
    Have been offered mentally by me,
    And do achamanam* and glance at me with mercy.
    *Holy sip of water for internal purification

    Pravaala muktha phala hatakaadhyair,
    Susamskrutham hyanthara bhavakena,
    Anarghyamarghyam saphalam kurushwa,
    Maya pradatham gana raja dunde. 9

    Hey, Dundi* who is king of ganas,
    Please make fruitful, the invaluable,
    Offerings made by me with devotion,
    And which are made of Gold, pearls and coral.
    * A name of Ganesa

    Sankalpitham bhava yutham grahana,
    Punathamachamya vinayaka, thwam,
    Bhakthamscha bhakthesa surakshayasu. 10

    Pleace receive from me this sweet scented,
    Madhuparka*, prepared mentally by me,
    And again do aachamana, Oh Vinayaka,
    Who is the king of the devotees and keep me safe.
    *Mixture of curd, ghee, water, honey and jaggery.

    Suvasitham champaka jathikaadhyai,
    Sthailam maya kalpithameva dunde,
    Grahana thena pravimardhayami,

    Hey Dundi, Please receive the oil,
    Scented with Jathi and Chapaka flowers,
    Prepared by me mentally and I would,
    Apply it all over your body, in your service.

    Maneka theertha hrythakena dundim,
    Chithena shudhena cha snapayami,
    Snanam maya datham adho grahana. 12

    Oh Dundi, I am giving you a bath with my mind,
    Using the pleasantly warm water brought from,
    Various sacred rivers and ponds,
    And be pleased to accept this bath.

    Sutheerthajam vigna hara praseedha,

    Oh God who removes obstacles, be pleased,
    Then receive a bath by milk and then water,
    Which are offered mentally by me,
    And then receive a bath by curds followed by water.

    Thatho grutha snanamapara vandhya,

    Thatho madhu snanamadho jalsya. 14

    Please receive then the bath by ghee,
    Which I am giving you mentally,
    Oh Lord who is saluted by innumerable,
    And then with water, Oh Ganesa,
    And become pleased with me,
    And then receive the bath with honey and water.

    Then receive the bath by sugar water,

    Then I will worship ganesa using,
    Chants from Vedas and the Dhurva grass,
    Followed by bathing him well,
    While chanting The Brahmanaspathi chants.

    Thatha suvasthrena thu pronchanam thwam,

    [Octet on Ganesha]


    Yatho anantha shakthir anathascha jeeva,
    Yatho nirgunadha aprameyaa gunasthe,
    Yatho bhathi saravam tridha bedha binnam,
    Sada tham Ganesam namamo bhajama. 1

    We sing about and salute that Ganesa,
    From whose limitless power emerged countless beings,
    From whose property less form emerged great qualities,
    And from whose power the world is divided in to a triad.

    Yathaschaviraseej jagath sarvametha,
    Thadhabjasano viswgo viswagoptha,
    Thandendradhayo deva sanga manushya,
    Sada tham Ganesam namamo bhajama. 2

    We sing about and salute that Ganesa,
    From whom this entire universe emerged,
    And from whom Brahma who sits on a lotus,
    Vishnu who pervades the universe,
    Shiva who can hide this universe,
    Indra, other devas and men emerged.

    Yatho vahni bhanu bhavo bhoor jalam cha,
    Yatha sagaraschandrama vyoma vayu,
    Yatha sthavara jangama vruksha sangha,
    Sada tham Ganesam namamo bhajama. 3

    We sing about and salute that Ganesa,
    From whom, the fire, sun, Shiva earth and water emerged,
    From whom ocean, moon and sky emerged,
    And from whom stable and movable beings and trees emerged.

    Yatho dhanava, kinnara yaksha sangha,
    Yatha scharana varana swapadascha,

    Sada tham Ganesam namamo bhajama. 4

    Sada tham Ganesam namamo bhajama. 5

    We sing about and salute that Ganesa,
    From whom wisdom and eternal knowledge
    Which drives away ignorance emerged,
    From whom wealth which pleases devotees emerged,
    And by whom roadblocks are removed and,
    Success in every action is attained.

    Yatha puthra sampadhyatho, vanchithartho,
    Yatho abhakthi vignasthadha anekaroopa,
    Yatho soka mohaou yatha kama eva,
    Sada tham Ganesam namamo bhajama. 6

    We sing about and salute that Ganesa,
    By whom child wealth and desires are granted,
    By whom several forms of problems,
    Are created for those who are not devotees,
    And who creates sorrow, desire and passion.

    Yatho anantha shakthi sasesho bhabhoova,
    Dharadhararenakaroope cha shaktha,
    Yatho anekadha swargalolka hi nana,
    Sada tham Ganesam namamo bhajama. 7

    We sing about and salute that Ganesa,
    From whom Anantha gets his power to lift the earth,
    Who can assume several different forms,
    And from whom all the heavens were created.

    Yatha veda vacho vikunta manobhi,
    Sada nethinetheeti yatha gunanthi,
    Para brahma roopam chidananda bhootham,
    Sada tham Ganesam namamo bhajama. 8

    We sing about and salute that Ganesa,
    About whom even the Vedas do not understand,
    And stop with searches with This is not, This is not,
    Who is the real form of that eternal truth,
    And who is the real form of that eternal joy.

    Phala sruthi
    (Results of reading)

    Punarooche Ganadheesa stotramedath paden nara,
    Trisandhyam tridinam thasya sarva karyam bhavishyathi. 9

    If the man devoted to Lord Ganesa,
    Reads this thrice a day for three days,
    All his actions will meet with success.

    Yo japeth ashtadivasam sloskashtakamidham shubham,
    Ashta varam Chathurthyanthu so ashta Sidheravapnuyath. 10

    He who reads this holy octet for eight days,
    For eight weeks or chants it eight times,
    On the fourth day of the moon’s phase,
    Would make the eight occult powers his own.

    Sa paden masa mathram thu, dasa varam dine dine,
    Sa mochayed bandhagatham raja vadhyam na samsaya. 11

    He who reads it ten times a day for one month,
    Would be freed, even if punished with death by the king.

    Vidhya kamo labed vidhyam, puthrarthi puthramapnuyath,
    Vanchithaan labhathe sarvan, ekavimsathi varatha. 12

    He who repeats it with devotion for twenty one weeks,
    Would get knowledge if he desires and Would get children if he desires.

    Yo japed paraya bhakthya gajanana paro nara,
    Evamukthwa thatho devaschanthrdhanam gatha prabhu. 13

    He who meditates with devotion on Ganesa,
    Would get salvation and attain the rich world of the Lord.

  • Vinayagar Agaval
    [Blank poem on Vinayagar]
    By Saint Poet Avaiyar

    [Avaiyar (meaning a very Old mother) was one of the very great women poets of ancient Tamil Nadu. (In telugu even today mother is called Avva) Apart from being a great poet, she played a very great role in the politics of those days by making the great kings obey her. There are many references to her being a great Devotee of Lord Subrahmanya. Historians are of the opinion that there were, more than one lady poet who called herself as Avaiyar. One such poet existed before the birth of Christ. This poet was a great story teller and social reformer. The next Avaiyar lived in the fourteenth centuary. Her well known work is AthiChoodi, which was written for easy learning by Tamil Children. It is interesting to note that even today, Athichoodi shows the simple path to live well, for all children. Vinayagar Agaval is another one of her great works. Agaval means blank poetry and it is a song addressed to Lord Ganapathy. He is addressed as Vinayagar (he who removes obstacles) or Pillayar in Tamil. This prayer is an extremely popular one in Tamil Nadu. It clearly brings out the mastery of Avvaiyar in the Yoga, tantric practices and Saivism, possibly derived from the contribution of Sidhas in Tamil Nadu and the Tamil Nadu Saivism. I have taken the liberty of understanding this great work based on the English translation of Mr. Layne little (poetry-chaikhana.com/A/Avaiyar/VinayagarAga.htm) and a great expository article which appeared in Tamil Guardian (tamilguardian.com/article.asp?articleid=1479).]

    Seetha kallabha chenthamaraippum,
    Paatha chilambhu pala isai paada,
    Pon araijnanum, thingythugil aadaiyum,
    Vanna marungil valarindu azhakerippa,
    Pezhai vayirum, perum paara kodum,
    Vezha mukhamum, vilangu chindooramum,
    Anju karamum, angusa paasamum,
    Nenjir kudi konda neela meniyum,
    Naandra vaayum, naaliru puyamum,
    Moondru kannum, mummatha chuvadum,
    Irandu cheviyum, ilangu pon mudiyum,
    Thiranda muppiri nool thigazh oli maarbum,
    Chor padam kadantha thuriya mey jnanam,
    Arpudham nindra karpaga kallire

    While the anklets on the cool sandal anointed feet
    Which has the colour of the red hibiscus flower,
    Sings various songs, while the golden waist belt,
    And his clothes as soft as flower,
    Shine in pretty and beautiful colours of the rainbow,
    While his box like paunch, weighty tusks
    Elephant like face, the saffron dot applied on it,
    Five hands and the goad and rope that he has,
    His blue body which attracted our mind,
    Hanging mouth, his four sets of shoulders,
    His three eyes, three trails of his feets,
    His two ears, his shining golden hair,
    His glowing broad chest wearing the holy thread,
    His divine knowledge of Thuriya, his mastery over words,
    Stood in awe at the wish giving elephant.

    Muppazham nugarum Mooshiga vahana,
    Ippothu yennai aat kolla vendi,
    Thayay yenakku, thaan yezhundaruli,
    Mayaa piravi, mayakkam aruthu,

    Porundave vanthu yen ullam thannil pugundhu,

    OH god who rides on an elephant and eats three fruits,

    Five lettered Namasivaya, enter then in to my mind,
    Step in to this world in the form of a teacher in this world of ours,
    And tell me with happiness that this is its real meaning

    Kodaayudathaal peru(kodu) vinai kallainthe,
    Uvatta upadesam pugatti yen cheviyil,
