Ganesh Bhujangam

Eulogy on Ganesh

I praise the leader of the Gana of Rudra, Who is the son of Ishan (Shiv), Who appears pleasing with the sounds of joyful swinging small bells across His body, Whose lotus-feet is trembling to the dance of Tandav in rebellious ways, and Who has a snake-garland shining over His belly.||1||

I praise the leader of the Gana of Rudra, Who is the son of Ishan (Shiv), Whose face is resplendent hearing the sounds coming out from the strings of veena (music instrument), Who has a resplendent trunk-stem and temple, Who has a shiny flow of juice from the trunk-temple, and Who has a trickling garland of fragrant flowers with bumble-bees hovering around.||2||

I praise the leader of the Gana of Rudra, Who is the son of Ishan (Shiv), Who is shining like the blood-red inner new shoots of the china rose (a.dahula) owing to the morning red light, Who has a large (long) belly, Who has a round belly, and Who has one-elephant tusk.||3||

I praise the leader of the Gana of Rudra, Who is the son of Ishan (Shiv), Who is adorned by colorful shining garland of diamonds and jewels, Who is adorned at the forehead by streaks of diamond-like moon, Who is like the ornament of those without ornaments, and Who is for the destruction of the world (at the end of Kalpa).||4||

I praise the leader of the Gana of Rudra, Who is the son of Ishan (Shiv), Who has elevating creeper like hand, which is worth a sight, Whose forehead is moving to and fro and shining, and Who is served by the fan of shining beauty.||5||

I praise the leader of the Gana of Rudra, Who is the son of Ishan (Shiv), Who has a shining and rough tongue, Who has yellowish corner (pupil) of the eyes, Who takes an incarnation for mercy, comfort and benevolence, and Who is attained by the Yogi who sing His praises.||6||

I praise that Ganesha, Who is the beginning of the universe, Who is pure, Who is free from differences, Who is beyond the qualities, Who is pure bliss, Who is formless, Who is beyond everything, Who is OMkar, Who is the creator of illusions, and Whom eminent Purana sing.||7||

Salutations for Ganesha, Who agglutinates happiness and bliss, Who is peaceful, Who creates and destroys the world, Who has immeasurable sportivity (leela), Who is only light or enlightenment. O Ganesh, Who is the root of the world, Who is the son of Shiv! Accept my salutes and be happy on me.||8||

Those who study this eulogy, having woken up in the morning, with devotion achieve all the desires in the mundane existence. They also attain Vaak-Siddhi (a power in which spoken wishes get fulfilled). When Ganesh is happy, then what can be difficult? (Nothing).||9||
