Dwatrimsath Ganapathi dhyana slokas

Dwatrimsath  Ganapathi dhyana slokas.

Translated by

       According to Mudgala Purana , a book dealing with Lord Ganesa, there are thirty two  forms of Ganesa. These are listed described along with pictures   and Dhyana Slokas are in a Kannada book called  Sri Thathwa nidhi, in the chapter on Shiva Nidhi. These pictures along with the slokas are  sculpturally  represented along with Dhyana Slokas  in the temple at Nanjangud  as well as  Chamaraja nagar near Mysore. I got these slokas in  a book pulished by the Ganesa temple of Connaught place , new Delhi in the year   1969.  Each Dhyana sloka gives a detailed  form of that Ganesa. Ganesa devotees believe  that chanting these 32 slokas   would  help you fulfill all your wishes.  Detailed iconography along with a drawn picture along with slokas   their translation as well as the location of the concerned  temples is available in the web site
