*********************
Gajananam Bhootha Ganadhi sevitham
Kavitha jamboo palasara bakshitham
Umasutham shoka vinayasha karanam
Namami vigneshwara pada pankajam

Mooshika vahana modhaka hastha
Shyamala karna vilambitha soothra
Vaamana roopa maheshwara putra
vigna vinayaka pada namasthe

Agajanana padmarkam gajananam akarnisham
aneka dantham bhaktanam eka dantam upasmahe

Vakra thunda mahakaya suryakoti samaprabha
nirvigram kurme deva sarva karyashu sarvatha

shuklam baratharam vishnum
shashi varnam chatur bhujam
prasanna vadanam dhyayet
sarva vigna upashanthaye

Aindhu karathanai aanai mugaththanai
indhi ilampirai polum aeyitranai
nandi magandanai nyana kozhndhinai
pundhiyil vaithu adi potrugindrome

paalum theli thenum paagum paruppum
ivai naangum kalandhunakku naan tharuvein
kolam sei thunga karimugathu thoomaniye
nee enakku sangathamizh moondrum thaa

Theeyiyum veyyon punalinum thaniyon
aayinum eesan arul arivar illai
seyinum nallon aniya nall anbarkku
thayinum nallon thazh sadayone

Thiruvaarkkum sei karumam kai koottum - senjol
peruvarkkum peedum perukkum uruvakkum adhalal
vaanorum aanai mugathonai kaadhalal
kooppuvar tham kai.

Prayers to Mahaganapathi as he showers his blessings on all of us.

Tj..

Nice post on Pillaiyar chathurthi..guess the malaikOtai Pillayar temple is at least 2000 yrs old..his presence in the srirangakshethram defintely indicates his devoutness to Sri Ranganatha..(going by the story behind Sri ranganatha temple)

dear TJ,.
lovely post,
I have two things to share with you

my grandma placed me on the feet of RajaGanapathy in Salem and named me RajaGanapathy.

I was also named Mukund in front of lord Guruvayoorappan in the Guruvayoor temple before my official name Anand was given to me.

I have a fondness for Pillayaar that will be elaborated upon in my post- tomorrow.

great work,

btw small request,

a fierce debate is going on in my comments section for the last past , I have stated and defended my position , I need some clear opinion on this and I think you can help me , I'll also call in others , I may be right but then again I may be wrong,

just point out my logical mistakes (if you think my opponent is right) or support my position (if you think I am being logical in my arguments)

your help will be appreciated

SARVAM SRIKRISHNAARPANAMASTHU!

Anand aka Rajaganapathy,
Waiting for your post on Pillayar!

nice post, thiruchykke oru vasanai aduvum uchi pillayar kovil kitta kadambam malli kalandukatti - aha

Yes Paavai,
Though madurai malligai,kumbakonam vettalai et all are known to be famous, Trichy produces one of the best range of flowers, vettalais, and almost all vegetables, with a distinct flavour..
Thanks to Kaveri.
