(This great prayer tells   eight names  of Lord Ganesa  followed by salutation to each  name. This stotra was sent to  me  by Sri.K.Muralidharan  .I am extremely thankful to him.)
Sri Vishnur Uvacha:-

1.Ganesam, Ekadantham  cha Herambham, Vighna Nayakam,
Lambodharam, soorpakarnam  Gaja Vakthram, Guhagrajam

Ganesa, Lord with one tusk , Lord close to Shiva , Lord of obstacles,
Lord with big paunch  , Lord with winnow like ears , Lord with elephant head, Elder brother  of Subrahmanya.

2.Ashtakhartham  cha puthrasya  srunu mathara  hara priye,
Stotraanaam sara bhootham  cha sarva vighna haram param.

Oh darling of Shiva , please hear  these eight great names of your son,
Which is the essence  of all prayers and  destroys  all obstacles.

3.Jnanartha vachako gascha nascha nirvana vachaka,
Thayor eesam para brahma ganesam pranamamyaham.

This word of wisdom starting from “Ga’  and ending with “na” liberates you,
And so I salute    the Lord Ganesa    who   is indeed   the divine  Parabrahma,

4.Yeka sabdha pradhanartho Danthascha  bala vachaka,
Balam pradhaanam sarvasmaad Ekadantham namamyaham,

In the    strong word  mentioning “DAntha” ,  the word “Eka”  is important  ,
And because     strength is very important  I salute the  Ekadantha.

5.Dheenartha vachako  hesacha rAmbha palaka   vachaka,
Palakam dheena lokaanaam Herambham pranamamyaham.

The word staring with “He”   and ending with “Rambha” is the protective word to the depressed,
And would protect   all depressed  ones  and I salute that  Herambha.

6.Vipathi vachako Vighno nayaka khandanarthaka,
Vipath khandana karam tham prana may  Vighna Nayakam .

The word starting with “Vighna” and ending with Nayaka” is   the destroyer of danger ,
And I salute that  Vighna Nayaka who cuts off   all dangers.

7.Vishnu dathaischa  naivedyair  yasya   lambham purodaram,
Pithra dathaischa vividham vandhe Lambodharam cha tham.

Due to the offering  of Lord Vishnu  he has a big paunch ,
And  he also has been given various  things   by his father  and I salute   that Lambodhara.

8.Soorpakarai cha yath karnou, vighna varana karakou,
SAmpadhou Jnana roopou  cha soorpa karnou  Namayaham.

Using the winnow like   ears of his  , he  removes all obstacles,
And grants wealth  and wisdom, and I salute  that Lord Soorpa Karna.

9.Vishnu prasadam munina datham  yan moordhni pushpakam,
Thad Gajendra mukham kantham Gajavakthram namayaham.

Due to the offering of Vishnu given to him by sages , his forehead is wish fulfilling,
And that Lord has  the face of king of elephants and I salute that Lord Gajavakthra.

10.Guhyagre    cha jathoyam  aavirbhootho Haralaye  ,
Vandhe Guhagrajam devam, sarva deva agra  poojitham.

He was born before Subrahmanya   in the  place   of Lord Shiva ,
My salutations to  the God Guhyagraja  , who is worshipped before all  Gods.

Phala sruthi
The effect of chanting the prayer

Yethan namashtakam Durge  nana Shakthi yutham param,
Yethan namashtakam stotram nanartha   sahitham shubham

These   eight names  Oh Goddess  Durga   have several type of powers,
This prayer   of  eight names  leads to different types of auspicious wealth

TRisandhyam ya paden nithyam sa sukhi sarvadhaa  jayi,
Thatho vighnaa palaayanthe  vainatheya adhyadhoragha .

If this read at dawn noon and dusk  he would be  happy  and be always a winner  ,
All the obstacles would be driven out  and would become free  of diseases .

Ganeswara prasadena maha jnani bhaved druvam,
Puthrarthi labhathe  puthram , bharyarthi kusalam sriyam

By the grace of Ganesa   he would  definitely  become   greatly wise  man,
He who seeks sons will get a son and he who seeks a wife would  get an efficient wife.

Maha jada  kaveendrascha vidhyaavaamsa   bhaved druvam,
Puthra thwam pasya vedhe thadhaa kopam cha na kuru.

The great fool will become a great poet and would definitely become  intelligent man,
He would see his sons  , learn Vedas   and would not  get the displeasure of the God.
