This being my first post was viewed by none. Since Ganesh Chathurdhi is nearing us I felt it apt for re-posting it.
He who is adored greatly, he who is revered highly,
He who is loved ardently, he who is worshipped deeply,
Removes the barriers I face, provides the bliss I yearn for,
Clears the pavement I walk on, blesses with things I wish for,
Grants the wishes I desire, brings the glory I look for,
Fulfills the dreams I see, Cares the family I belong to,
Puts me to action from inaction, leads me to shelter from theft,
Awakes me to light from dark, protects me to shade from heat,
Keeps me to courage from cowardice, holds me to safety from danger,
Guides me to health from ill health, takes me to food from hunger,
Drives me to virtue from vices, pushes me to awareness from ignorance,
Drags me to calmness from tension, slides me to gladness from sadness.
It’s me who prostrates before him, it’s me who bows in front of him,
It’s me who prays for his presence, it’s me who longs for his hand.
Oh! My lord, the beloved Ganesh, you are my loadstar,
You are my spirit, you are my soul, and you are my energy .
You lie here within me and steer me to destination,
And you turn all my stones to my will with full compassion.
Pour in our lap in plenty ,peacefulness with sympathy,
And forgive us all, for a lot we all posses apathy.
