O Gajanana! O Inspirer of mankind,
Clear all those paths, O Lord,
Paths which lead to Your Father's divine Realm.
Of bhakti, of karma, of raja yoga and jnana,
The pursuit of which path is possible,
O Vinayaka, without Your blessing, without Your grace?
O Gajanana, O Lord of obstacles,
How many have You impelled over the aeons,
Toward noble goals; toward dharma and moksha?
Not one can ascend Kailasa sans Your aid,
Not one can approach Shakti nor Shiva,
O Child of Shiva-Shakti, without Your express consent.
O Gajanana, O Emperor of Dharma,
The Muladhara chakra is Your bejeweled throne,
From whence You rule, You command the physical world.
How can one even conceive of higher states of being,
Without first falling down at Your holy feet?
O Ganesha, verily all realizations occur by Your guidance alone.
Aum Gam Ganapataye Namah.
