Jaya ganesha girijaasuvana mangala mula sujaana
Kahata ayodhyaadasa tuma deu abhaya varadaana

Jaya girijaapati diinadayaala sadaa karata santana pratipaala
Bhaala chandramaa sohata niike kaanana kundala naaga phanii ke

Anga gaura shira ganga bahaaye mundamaala tana kshaara lagaaye
Vastra khaala baghambara sohe chhavi ko dekhi naaga mana mohe

Mainaa maatu ki have dulaarii vaama anga sohata chhavi nyaarii
Kara trishuula sohata chhavi bhaarii karata sadaa shatruna kshayakaarii

Nandii ganesha sohain tahan kaise saagara madhya kamala hain jaise
Kaartika shyaama aura ganaraau yaa chhavi kau kahi jaata na kaau

Devana jabahiin jaaya pukaaraa tabahin dukha prabhu aapa nivaaraa
Kiyaa upadrava taaraka bhaarii devana saba mili tumahin juhaarii

Turata shadaanana aapa pathaayau lava nimesha maham maari giraayau
Aapa jalandhara asura sanhaaraa suyasha tumhaara vidita sansaara

Tripuraasura sana yuddha machaai tabahin kripaa kara liina bachaai
Kiyaa tapahin bhaagiiratha bhaarii puraba pratigyaa taasu purarii

Daanina mahan tuma sama kou naahiin sevaka stuti karata sadahiin
Veda maahi mahimaa tuma gaai akatha anaadi bheda nahiin paai

Prakate udadhi manthana men jvaalaa jarata suraasura bhae vihalaa
Kiinha dayaa tahan karii sahaai niilakantha taba naama kahaai

Puujana raamachandra jaba kiinhaan jiita ke lanka vibhiishana diinhaa
Sahasa kamala men ho rahe dhaarii kiinha pariiksha tabahin tripurarii

Eka kamala prabhu raakheu joi kamala nayana pujana chahan soi
Kathina bhakti dekhii prabhu shankara bhaye prasanna die ichchhita vara

Jaya jaya jaya ananta avinaashii karata kripaa sabake ghata vaasii
Dushta sakala nita mohi satavain bhramata rahaun mohe chaina na aavain

Traahi traahi main naatha pukaaro yaha avasara mohi aana ubaaro
Le trishula shatruna ko maaro sankata se mohin aana ubaaro

Maata pitaa bhraata saba koi sankata men puuchhata nahin koi
Svaamii eka hai aasa tumhaarii aaya harahu mama sankata bhaarii

Dhana nirdhana ko deta sadaa hii jo koi jaanche so phala paahiin
Astuti kehi vidhi karon tumhaarii kshamahu naatha aba chuuka hamarii

Shankara ho sankata ke nashana mangala kaarana vighna vinaashana
Yogii yati muni dhyaana lagaavain shaarada naarada shiisha navaavain

Namo namo jaya namah shivaaya sura brahmadika paara na paaya
Jo yaha paatha kare mana laai taa para hota hain shambhu sahaai

Raniyaan jo koi ho adhikaarii paatha kare so pavana haarii
Putra hona kii ichchhaa joi nishchaya shiva prasaada tehi hoi

Pandita trayodashii ko laave dhyaana purvaka homa karaave
Trayodashii vrata karai hameshaa tana nahin taake rahai kaleshaa

Dhuupa diipa naivedya chadhaave shankara sammukha paatha sunaave
Janma janma ke paapa nasave anta dhaama shivapura men paave

Kahain ayodhyadaasa aasa tumhaarii jaani sakala dukha harahu hamaarii
