HYMNS TO GANESHA – GANESHA PRATAH SMARANAM

णेशप्रातःस्मरणम्
  प्रातः
स्मरामि गणनाथमनाथबन्धुं
   सिंदूरपूरपरिशोभित गण्डयुग्मम् ।
   उद्दण्डविघ्नपरिखण्डनचण्डदण्डं   
   आखण्डलादि सुरनायक वृन्दवन्द्यम् ॥ १ ॥

I remember, in the morning hours,  the Lord of ganas (Ganapati) who is the friend of those who have none to turn to for help, whose both cheeks are coloured by sindoor, who is very powerful in smashing the greatest of obstacles and who is worshipped by Indra and other leaders of the denizens of heaven.  

   प्रातर्नमामि चतुरानन वन्द्यमानं
   इच्छानुकूलमखिलंच फलं ददानम् ।
   तं तुंदिलं द्विरसनाधिप यज्ञसूत्रं
   पुत्रं विलासचतुरं शिवयोः शिवाय ॥
२ ॥
Early morning I bow to the son of Shiv-Parvati, Ganesha, for everything that is auspicious, who is worshipped by Brahma, who dispenses fruits according to the wishes of devotees, who is pot-bellied, who has the chief of serpents as his yagnasutra  and who is an expert in playful activities. 

   प्रातर्भजाम्यभयदं खलु भक्तशोक-

   दावानलं गणविभुं वरकुंजरास्यम् ।
   अज्ञानकाननविनाशनहव्यवाहं
   उत्साहवर्धनमहं सुतमीश्वरस्य ॥ ३ ॥
Early morning I worship the son of Lord Shiva, Ganesha, who is the refuge for his devotees, who is like wild-fire for their sorrows, who is the fire which destroys the forest of their ignorance and who encourages and enthuses them.  

  श्लोकत्रयमिदं पुण्यं सदा साम्राज्यदायकम्

  प्रातरुत्थाय सततं यः पठेत्प्रयतः पुमान्
॥ ४ ॥

These three slokas  are sacrosanct and always bestow wealth and Lordship on those who always chant them,  after waking up early morning, pure in body and mind.
