Vinayaka Sthuthi from Varaha Purana

Vinayaka Sthuthi

(From Varaha Puranam)

Translated by
P.R.Ramachander

(Here is a rare stotra addressed to Lord Ganapathi from the chapter on birth of Ganapathi from Varaha Purana.  The stotra mentions that Ganapathi was born from the mouth of Lord Shiva. It recommends offering Sesame seeds  to the Lord and eating it. This great stotra  was sent to me by Sri Krishna Muralidharan.)

Deava Ouchu:-
Devas told:-
Namasthe Gaja Vakthraya , Namasthe Gana Nayaka,
Vinayaka Namosthesthu, Namasthe Chanda Vikrama,

Salutations to the elephant headed one, Salutations to the leader of Ganas,
Salutations to remover of obstacles , Salutations to greatly valorous one.

Namosthu they Vighna karthre , Namasthe Sarpa Mekhala,
Namasthe Rudhra Vakthrotha , pralambha jatarasritha.

Salutations to  one solving obstacles , Salutations to one who wears Serpent as belt,
Salutations to one who rose from  the mouth of Rudra and  whose stomach depends on his hanging trunk.

Sarva Deva Namaskradh avighnam kuru Sarvadhaa

Due to the salutations of all devas, please remove obstacles always.

Phalasruthi
Listing of benefits

Yevam sthuthaa  devair Mahathma Gana Nayaka,
Abhishiktham thu Rudrena Somaaya apathyathangatha.

After worshipping like this to the lord of Ganas , the devas,
Anointed  Rudra  who remedied the curse  on the moon.

Yethas Chathurthi sampannam Ganadhyakshasya Parthiva,
Yathas  thatho ayam mahathim  thidhinaam paramam thithim.

When the Chathurthi Thithi was   complete , the king who removes obstacles was born,
And because of that    that great thithi became   a divine thithi.

Yethasyaam  yas thilaan Bhukthwaa Bhakthyaa Ganapathim Nrupa,
Aaradhayathi Thasya aasu thushyathe naathra samsaya,

Those who eat the seasame with devotion   to Ganesa,
I mmediately after worshipping him   , without any doubt will make that Lord happy.

Yas chaithath padathe stotram , yas chaithath sruniyath thadhaa.
Na thasya vighnaa jaayanthe , na papam sarvadhaa nrupa.

Those who read this prayer or those who listen to it ,
Will never face any obstacles   or sins  by the grace of the king like lord.

Varaha Purane, Vinayakothpathir Nama trayovimsadhyaaye  sri Vinayaka Sthuthi sampoornam.


Thus the prayer of Vinayaka   which occurs as the 23rd chapter  of Varaha Purana   called “Birth of Ganesa” comes  to an end.
