Ganesh Vandana Lyrics - English, Hindi & Telugu Languages With Meaning

As already mentioned by me in a previous article "How to perform Puja", the worship of God starts with prayers of Lord Ganesha who is the lord of obstacles. So, I will tell here what are the hymns or slokas that need to be recited for Ganesh Stuti in your daily puja.

The following Five Hymns or slokas are the most popularly read or recited at the start of any daily puja in most of the homes. It is being presented in all the three versions of Hindi, Telugu, and English languages respectively with their meanings also for your ready reference.

Sloka no.1

प्रसन्न वदनम् ध्यायेत् सर्व विघ्नोपशान्तये ||

శుక్లాంబరధరం విష్ణుం శశివర్ణం చతుర్భుజమ్
ప్రసన్న వదనం ధ్యాయేత్ సర్వ విఘ్నోప శాంతయే

Suklaambara dharam, Vishnum, sashivarnam, chaturbhujam
prasanna vadanam dhyaayEt sarva vighnOpa shaantayE

Meaning of above hymn:- 
I am bowing to the All-pervasive God who is wearing pure white clothes, who bears moon-like complexion, who has four shoulders and whose face is very pleasing. I bow to Him for protection from all obstacles.

Sloka no.2

లంబోదరాయ, సకలాయ, జగత్ జితాయ |

Giant-sized belly holder, master of all arts, winner of all beings with his benevolence,
