Sankata Nashak Ganesh Stotra संकष्टनाशनं गणेश स्तोत्र
Ganesh Stotra: Today, I will introduce you to one of the best prayers in Ganesh Paath– ‘Shri Sankat-Nashan Naam Ganesh Stotra’ which is taken from Narada Purana as a reference. This is said to be the most effective Ganesh strotra among all the prayers and mantras of Lord Ganesha.
It is said that before performing any event, family functions or travelling or spiritual ritual and even in Vaastu poojan one should recite this auspicious ‘Ganesh stotra’ which helps in removing the hurdles hence thereby elevating the material growth of individual and family.
I have been introduced to this stotram by one of my spiritual colleagues who has achieved a good level of spiritual growth by reciting this Ganesha stotram for 5 years. Let’s move with ‘Sankath-Nashan’ Ganesh Stotra saluting to the great DemiGod and absolute truth Lord Gajanan.
नारद उवाच (Naradji Says)
प्रणम्य शिरसा देवं गौरी विनायकम् । भक्तावासं स्मरेन्नित्यं आयुःकामार्थ सिद्धये ॥1॥
Pranmya Shirsa Devam Gauri Vinayakam Bhaktavasam Smer Nityamay Aayuha Kamarthsidhyaye ॥1॥
I bow down my head at the feet of Lord Ganesha – The son of Gauri who is also known as Vinayaka. Then the devotee of Lord Ganesha should daily recite this stotram for the blessing of Vinayaka for Long healthy life, fulfilling the desire of your life. Hence, one should recite his names on a daily basis.
प्रथमं वक्रतुडं च एकदंत द्वितीयकम् । तृतियं कृष्णपिंगात्क्षं गजववत्रं चतुर्थकम् ॥2॥
Pratham Vakra tudam cha Ekantant Dwitiyakam. Tritiya Krishna pingasaksam Gaja Vatram Chaturthar-kam ॥2॥
