Vallabhesa  Karavalamba  Dasakam

Translated   by



"Vallabha Ganapathi is that   form of Ganapathi Vallabha   Ganapathi is a rare  form of Ganapathi who has eleven  arms   and is believed   to be the protector of the universe. There are a few temples dedicated   to this form of Ganapathi ( for example  Mambalam, Madras)  and one of them is in Suva, Fiji Islands and another   in New york . I know of only three Karavalamvha stotras   , one dedicated    to Lord Subramanya , one to Lord Lakshmi Narasimha   and the other dedicated   to Lord Venkatesa.

.The stotram was taught by late Smt. Sarada, the daughter of Jailor & Astrologer Ganapathy Iyer, Irinjalakuda to her son Ganesan.  The first letters   of the   slokas of this stotram combine to form  "Om Sri Gam  Ganapathaye  Nama  and after  long search  I have confirmed   that  it is neither available in the web nor  in any of the books  of published   Ganesa stotras . I have translated the stotra   after  correcting the minor  mistakes which had crept in  over years . I am dedicating    this stotra  to the memory   of  Smt Sarada  , the great devotee  of Vallabha  Ganapathi."


Bheeja pooragadekshukarmukarujaa chakrabja pasthpala,

Vrehygraswavishana  rathna kalasa prodhyuth karamboruha,

Dhyoyo vallabhaya  cha padmakarayaslishto jwalath bhooshaya,

Viswothpathi  vinasa  samsthithikaro vigno  visishtarthadha. 


It is necessary to meditate on that God who prevents bottlenecks,

Who holds in his eleven hands things like lemon, mace ,

Bow, sugarcane, spear ,holy wheel, lotus flower, rope,

The black bel flower, the paddy bunch, his own tusk and pot of gems,

Who is being embraced by his wife  who is well ornamented,

And having in her hand a lotus flower,

Who does the creation, upkeep and destruction of the universe,

And who blesses all with the special wealth.
