श्रीगणेशाय नम: ।
नारद उवाच ।
प्रणम्य शिरसा देवं गौरीपुत्रं विनायकम्। भक्तावासं स्मरेनित्यं आयु: कामार्थसिद्धये ॥१॥
The learned one, who wishes,
For more life, wealth and love,
Should salute with his head,
Lord Ganapathi who is the son of Parvathy.
प्रथमं वक्रतुण्डं च एकदंत द्वितीयकम् । तृतीयं कृष्णपिड्गाक्षं गजवक्त्रं चतुर्थकम् ॥२॥
Think him first as god with broken tusk,
Second as the God with one tusk,
Third as the one with reddish black eyes,
Fourth as the one who has the face of an elephant.
लम्बोदरं पञ्चमं च षष्ठं विकटमेव च । सप्तमं विघ्नराजेंद्रं धूर्मवर्णं तथाष्टकम् ॥३॥
Fifth as the one who has a very broad paunch,
Sixth as the one who is cruel to his enemies,
Seventh as the one who is remover of obstacles,
Eighth as the one who is of the colour of smoke.
नवमं भालचन्द्रं च दशमं तु विनायकम् । एकादशं गणपतिं द्वादशं तु गजाननम् ॥४॥
Ninth as the one who crescent in his forehead,
Tenth as the one, who is the leader of remover of obstacles,
Eleventh as the leader of the army of Lord Shiva,
And twelfth as the one who has the face of an elephant.
द्वादशैतानि नामानि त्रिसंध्यं य: पठेन्नर: । न च विघ्नभयं तस्य सर्वसिद्धिकरं परम् ॥५॥
Any one reading these twelve names,
At dawn, noon and dusk,
Will never have fear of defeat,
And would always achieve whatever he wants.
विद्यार्थी लभते विद्यां धनार्थी लभते धनम् । पुत्रार्थी लभते पुत्रान् मोक्षार्थी लभते गतिम्॥६॥
One who pursues education will get knowledge,
One who wants to earn money will get money,
One who wishes for a son, will get a son,
And one who wants salvation will get salvation.
जपेद्गगणपतिस्तोत्रं षड्भिर्मासै: फलं लभेत् । सर्वत्सरेण सिद्धि च लभते नात्र संशय: ॥७॥
Results of chanting this prayer,
Of Ganapathi will be got within six months,
And within a year, he would get all wishes fulfilled,
And there is no doubt about this.
अष्टभ्यो ब्राह्मणेभ्यश्च लिखित्वा य: समर्तयेत् । तस्य विद्या भवेत्सर्वा गणेशास्य प्रसादत: ॥८॥
One who gets this prayer,
Written by Eight Brahmanas,
And offers it to Lord Ganesa,
Will become knowledgeable,
And would be blessed with all stellar qualities,
By the grace of Lord Ganesa.
॥ इति श्रीनारदपुराणे संकष्टनाशनं गणेशस्तोत्रं सम्पूर्णम्॥
Thus ends the prayer to Ganesa from Narada Purana which would destroy all sorrows.
