I am protected by Shri Ganapati, he of five handsome elephant faces.
He who is the cause of the universe consisting of the five elements, who is revered by Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva, who is the son of Paramashiva of five faces.
He whose hands hold the symbols of Abhaya and Varada, the rope Pasha, a goad Srini, a pothered Kapala, a tusk Danta, a Modaka-sweet dish, Mudgara, and Rudraksha Mala. He who is established in Kamalapura the Tiruvarur, he is worshiped by all other celestials beginning with Indra. He is the remover of obstacles and the brother of Guruguha, the distinguished one. He is handsome with a pot-belly, he who is renowned for his compassion and who removes the sins of Kali.
