Ganesh Ji ki aarthi

(The prayer to Lord Ganesa)


Translated by


(Aarthi are Hindi prayer songs, sung in a chorus with the waving of lamps before gods, this prayer is addressed to Lord Ganesa)



Jai Ganes , Jai Ganes , Jai Ganes deva,

Matha Parvathi, Pitha Mahadeva,

Yeka danth , char bhuja, dhari,

Madhe sindhoor sohe moose ki Savari,

Andhan ko aankh deth Koodeen ko kaya,

Banjath ko puthra deth, nirdhan ko maya,

Haar chade, phool chade aur chade meva,

Laddu aan ka bhog lage santh kare Sevaa,

Denan ki laaj Rakho Shambhu puthra vari,

Manoradh ko poora karo jaya balihari.


Victory to Ganesh, Victory to Ganesh, Victory to God Ganesa

His mother is Goddess Parvathi and his father God Shiva,

He has one tusk and four hands,

He applies a thilak on his forehead and rides on a mouse,

He makes the blind see, gives a  full body to the leper,

He blesses the childless one with child, and he gives wealth to the poor,

We offer him garland. We offer him flowers , we offer him sweets,

A great offering of Laddu is made and saints do service to him,

Oh son of Lord Shiva, Take the offering of beaten rice from us,

And fulfill our wishes and make us victorious, I submit to you.
