Having an offspring is considered as one of the greatest blessings of life. It is also regarded as the principal purpose of marriage and family life. The intense emotions of the parents who bring a new life into existence and hold it close to their hearts, are something which cannot at all be described but can only be experienced. Children are considered the most precious gifts of the Almighty. Many are the reasons for people longing for progeny. Children satisfy the emotional needs of the parents and elders, while also continuing the family tree and the lineage.

This sloka is dedicated to Ganapathi, the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi. Ganapathi is hailed as a remover of obstacles and a harbinger of success, and is both loved and venerated. He has an elephant face, but also has a primordial form with a human head. He is celebrated as a hero of strength, a happy dancer, a sweet child and many more. It is considered a good custom to seek his blessings while starting any endeavor or undertaking any venture.

This sloka salutes Ganapathi, the benevolent Lord, whose grace, it is believed will bless people with good progeny.

This sloka (hymn) praises Lord Ganesh who is also known as Vinayaka.

Namosthu Gananaadhaaya Siddhi Budhdhi Yudhaayacha

Sarva Pradhaaya Devaaya Puthiraviruthi Pradhayacha

Gurudharaaya Gurave Gopthre Guhya sthithaayate

Gopyaaya Gobitha Sesha Bhuvanaaya Chidhatmane

Vishvamoolaaya Bhavyaaya Vishva Srushti Karaayate

Namo Namaste Satyaaya Satya Poornaaya Kandine

Ekadhantaaya sudhdhaaya Sumukaaya Namo Namaha

Prapanna Janapaalaaya Pranadaarti vinaasine

Charanam Bhava Devecha Sandhathim Soothrudam kuru

Bhavishtayanthiye Putra Matkule Gananaayakam

Tae sarve Tavapoojaartham Nirathaasyur varo matha:

Puthra pratha midham stothiram sarva sakthi pradhaayakam


Salutations to Vinayak, who is the son of Lord Shiva, who appears along with His consort Siddhi and Buddhi, the Lord who imparts everything, who bestows blessings for children, who has no Guru and who himself is the Guru, who is the protector, who is the brother of Lord Muruga, who bestows blessings to little creatures and mankind equally, who is the cause of the Universe, who is worshipped by Devas and mankind, who is true, who is the completer of truth, who has one tusk, who is pure and who has an elephant face. He is the protector of devotees and also destroys sins.
