This is a prayer to Lord Ganesha.
Om guru Brahma guru Vishnuhu
Guru devo Maheswaraha
Guru saakshath parabramha
tasmai shree guravenamaha
(Our Guru is Lord Vishnu,
Our Guru is Lord Maheshwara.
Our Guru is Lord Brahma
To this Guru that I pray.)
bhasvantham veda vigraham
Yaatnya valkyam munishreshtam
(I pray to Ganesha, who blesses good deeds,
who shines brightly with the knowledge of the vedas.
who leads rishis who perform yagnas.
He, who is superior to all the rishis,
And has control over all the senses,
like Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu.)
(I pray to Ganesha, who has mastery over all senses,
He, who has complete control over anger.
He is always in deep meditation,
happiness surrounds him.
He is in a yogic trance,
Head of rishis, I bow to him.)
