Oh Lord of GANA-s! Effulgent one! Protect me.
You are the sole refuge of those who surrender at your feet. Your graceful
face is like that of an elephant.
You are son of Lord SIVA whose head is adorned with the pleasing crescent
moon. You remove all wicked elements. Your glory is sung by BRAHMA and
other celestials. Your lotus-like feet grants all the desired wishes
of the devotees in totality.
You are surrounded by a swarm of bees, which are attracted by the great
flow of ichor(rutting juice) from your face. [like the bees hovering
around the ichor exuding from the head -MASTAKA-of an elephant in rut,
so too the devotees throng to you]. You hold a brilliant tusk in your
hand. You possess all the great virtues, you have a mouse for your vehicle.
You are the brother of GUHA. You are the peerless Lord.
You are the nephew of Lord PADMANABHA, who purifies all. You bestow
on your devotees, knowledge, prosperity, and happiness.
Oh compassionate Lord! Please protect us.
