Sankata-näsana Ganesa-Stotram

Saìkaöa-näçana Gaëeça-Stotram
from Närada Puräëa


närada uväca - Sage Närada says,

pranamya sirasä devam gauriputram vinäyakam |
bhaktäväsam smaren-nityam-äyuh kämärtha-sidhaye ||
1||

I worship daily, with bowed head, the son of Gauri, Lord Vinayaka, the refuge of his devotees, for the complete attainment of longevity, fulfillment of desires (dharma-aviruddha käma) and wealth. (1)

prathamam vakratundam ca ekadantam dvitiyakam|
 tritiyam krshnapingäksham gajavaktram caturthakam||
2||

i) First, as the one with the twisted/broken tusk, ii) second, as the one with the single tusk, iii) third, as the one with the reddish-black eyes, iv) fourth, as the elephant-faced. (2)

lambodaram pancamam ca shashtham vikatam eva ca|
saptamam vignaräjam ca dhümravarnam tathäshtakam||
3||

v) Fifth, as the pot-bellied one, vi) sixth, as the terrible (appearance only) one, vii) seventh, as the king of obstacles, viii) eighth, as the smoke-colored one. (3)

navamam bhälacandram ca dasamam tu vinäyakam|
ekädasam ganapatim dvädasam tu gajänanam||
4||

ix) Ninth, as the one who has a crescent on his forehead, x) tenth, as the remover of obstacles, xi) eleventh, as the leader of the Ganas (army of Lord Siva), xii) twelfth, as the elephant-faced. (4)

Phalasruti

dvädasaitäni nämäni trisandhyam ya pathen narah|
na ca vigna-bhayam tasya sarva-siddhi-karam prabho!||
5||

Whosoever chants/repeats these twelve names at dawn, noon, and dusk, will never have fear of defeat, and would always achieve whatever s/he wants (dharma-aviruddha käma). (5)

vidyärthi labhate vidyäm dhanärthi labhate dhanam|
puträrthi labhate putran mokshärthi labhate gatim||
6||

One who desires knowledge obtains knowledge. One who desires wealth, obtains wealth. One who desires child/ren, begets child/ren. One who desires freedom obtains it. (6)

japed-ganapati stotram shadbhir-mäsai phalam labhet|
samvatsarena siddhim ca labhate nätra samsayah
||7||

Whosoever chants this Ganapati-Stotram (daily) has his/her desire/s fulfilled within six months, and within a year achieves siddhi (perfection). There is no doubt with regard to this (assurance).

ashtabhyo brähmanebhysca likihitvä yah samarpayet|
tasya vidyä bhavet sarvä ganesasya prasädatah||
8||

Whosoever writes down this Stotram eight times, and has them distributed to as many (eight) brahmanas, reaches knowledge immediately, by the grace of Lord Ganesa. (8)

iti sri-närada-puräne sankata-näsana-ganapati-stotram sampürnam||

Here ends the prayer to Gaëeça from Närada Puräëa, which saves a person from any calamity/ies.
