Sri Ganesa Sthavam(Malayalam)
(A very remarkable and sincere prayer addressed to Lord Ganesa in Malayalam)
1.Vambicha pon kalasamonnu thadichu neenda,
Thumbikarathil athi santhathayodu menthi,
Kumbhee praveera mukha, kumba kulukki vannen,
Mumbil kalikkuga ganadhipa, kai thozhunnen.
With great peace holding in his huge thick trunk m,
A very big golden pot,
Oh valorous lord with a pot like face, please shake your big paunch,
And play before me , Oh chief of Ganas , I salute you.
2.Antham petaatha katu samsmruthi sagarathil ,
Anthar bhavathode kidannuzhalum namukkai,
Swantham vinayaka manoharamakum eka-
Dantham krupa nilaya palam athakkiyaalum.
For the sake of us who are suffering with inner emotions
IN the ocean of concentrated culture without end,
Oh our own Ganesa, your one tusk is very pretty ,
And so make it the bridge for us to cross that ocean.
3.Ha ha maha duritha ghora bhayaantharaaya ,
MOhaabdhiyilpathithanaam ivan eevidathil,
Dehantharam yetheeduvathinnu idayaakidolle,
Neehaara saila thanayaa suthaa pahi pahi.
Alas, alas , I have fallen this way in the ocean of passion.
Which is a mixture of great suffering and horrible fear,
Please do not give a chance for me to attain death,
Oh son of the daughter of the mountain of snow, Please protect me.
4.SWarvasikalkku mazhalaake akaththidunna,
Sarvaathmaja, pranatha palaka,Loka bandho,
SArvartha sidhikaraam charangri padmam,
Nirvaadham yen karalil nirthukil jnan jayichu
Oh God who removes all sufferings even to those in heaven,
Oh son of Lord Shiva who looks after those who salute you , Oh friend of the world,
If you keep your lotus like feet which grants all desires ,
Without any hesitation in my mind , I will achieve victory.
5.Keram karumbu kadali pazham appam, alpa –
Neram vidaathe ada then gratham mennithellam ,
Herambha, thinnu maruvumbozhum , aartha rakshaa,
Bhaaram bhavaan karuthalodu nadathidunnu.
Coconut, sugarcane, banana fruit, without ,
Leaving much time along with Ada , honey ghee and appam,
Oh Lord Ganesa, even when you are eating all these,
You carefully perform the heavy load of the service to your devotees.
6.Jnanadhiga pradhitha vaibhava bho Ganesa,
Jnan aasa poale vazhipadukal cheithu kollaam,
Nanaa vipathukal ozhichu Bhavth padaabja,
Sthanadhi vasamudan yen karal aarnidatte.
Oh Lord Ganesa who has the greatness of exuberance of knowledge,
I would conduct services and worships as per your desire,
Please remove different type of dangers and grant me,
The chance of living near your lotus like feet and let my mind become exuberant.
7.Pangam pedatha padi patharamaathu koodum,
Thangathinum thala thakarnnidum aathva dhangam,
Thingal kala dhara, Ganathipa nithya mastha-
Thaangam ninappathinnu thaan athilaagraham may
Oh Lord Ganesa who wears the crescent of the moon,
The shine of your body would powder even the purest gold,
Which has not been made dirty by the rising dust,
Oh Chief of Ganas but my desire , more than that,
Would be for you to daily think about my worries.
8.Sonasma rasmi thadavunna bhavannakharchi-
Senaanga chooda suthaa, Mad duritha andhakaram,
Kanaathe yaakki yakame kudi j kolluvaanai,
ThaaNaasu jnan kari varanana, kai thozhunnen.
Oh son of Lords Shiva who wears the moon ,
You are massaged by the red rays of the sun,
Oh Lord with the blessed face of the elephant,
You should completely remove the darkness of my sufferings,
And live within my mind speedily and I salute you.
