Gajananam

Gajaananam bhoodha ghanaathi sevitham
kabhitha jamboo palasara pakshitham
umaasutham sokha vinaasakaranam
namaami vigneswara paadha pankajam
Meaning

He who has the face of an elephant, one who is worshipped by the Bhooda ganam, He who eats the essence of kabitha and Jumbu fruits, He who is the son of Uma Devi and He who alleviates the ill fellings in us. O! Lord Vigneshwara who is an embodiment of all the above, we offer our Namaskarams at your Divine feet.

Guru Brahma

Gurur brahmaa gurur vishnuh
gurur devo maheshvarah
gurur saakshaat parabrahma
tasmai shree gurave namah.
Meaning

Know the Guru to be Brahma himself. He is Vishnu. He is also Shiva. Know Him to be the Supreme Brahman, and offer thy adorations unto that peerless Guru.

Yaa Kundendu

Yaa kundendu tushaarahaara dhavalaa
yaa shubhra vastraavritaa
yaa veenaa varadanda manditakaraa
yaa shveta padmaasanaa
yaa brahmaachyuta shankara prabhritibihi
devaih sadaa pujitaa
saa maam pattu saravatee bhagavatee
nihshesha jaadyaapahaa.
Meaning

Goddess Saraswati is all white like the kunda blossom, the moon, snow, and pearl. She is dressed in pure White. While two of Her hands play the veena, the two other hands are poised to give boons, and award punishments as needed. She is seated on a white lotus. She is ever worshipped by all the celestials including Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwara. May this Saraswati remove my obstacles and protect me.

Mooshika Vahana

Mooshika vaahana modhaha hastha
Chamara karna vilambitha suthra
Vamana rupa maheswara puthra
Vigna vinayaga padha namaste
Meaning

He who has the mouse as the vahana, He who always keeps Modhaham (a traditional sweet made from coconut jaggery and rice that is rolled into a ball) He who has ears that resemble a hand held fan. He who wears a chain-like ornament around his waist, He who is short stature, He who is the son of Lord Parameshwara. O! Lord Vinayaka who is all the above and he who always annuls all impediments, we worship your Divine Feet.

I bow down before Vishnu, the Lord of all worlds and the remover of all causes of fear. He is of blissful form. He lies on a serpent bed. He sports a lotus on His navel. The Lord of the celestials. He supports the whole cosmos.His limbs are exquisite and His complexion is blue like that of the sky and the rain cloud. The consort of Lakshmi. He has eyes rivaling the lotus. The yogis meditate on Him in their innermost heart.
