Vakratunda mahakaya surya koti samaprabha|
Nirvignyam kurume deva. Sarva karyeshu sarvada||
Gajaanana he shubhanana , parvati puthra Gajaanana...
I was brought up hearing these wonderful Ganesha stotras(prayers). The inspiration to do anything in life comes from him and I talk to him literally in times of loneliness. Sometimes I have got a weirdo look from people when they see me talking to myself(actually my innerself - that's where Ganesha resides according to me)..
Too much a philosophy in this space makes the write up very boring I guess. So before it gets there let me post the Mahaganapathi painting .
