    It is because this is a verse in praise of Vishnu!

    This is a prayer addressed to Vishnu and not Vinayaka. Since the prayer is to ward off all obstacles to our religious karma - whatever pooja, homa etc., we begin - a general feeling has come that it is a mantra to Vinayaka. We recite this mantra at the beginning and while chanting it we are told to gently 'tap' the sides of our forehead. This will be explained by experts by combining some aspect or other of yoga practice, kundalini or something like that. Even if there is no subtle meaning in such an action, we should consider it as a uniform practice stipulated by our religion and follow it, just as the armed forces walk in a peculiar manner towards the martyrs' memorial.

    Vinayaka is a late entrant into the Hindu pantheon. The Maanava grihya sootra (2.15) states that Vinayaka is a "dushtagraha" and prescribes a saanti-like parihaaram for warding off the evil effects which would be caused by Vinayaka's vakradrishti. Yaajnavalkya smriti (1.271-294) states that Vinayaka being the Commander (adhipati) of the ganas of Brahma and Rudra, he can not only create Vighna but also bestow the fruits of the poojas and other rituals made by the humans. Gobhila smriti (1.13) recommends doing pooja of Ganesha along with Saptamaatrikas at the start of every dharma karma (religious rite). The practice of worshipping the now-famous roopa of Ganesha is, according to the opinion of scholars, a custom which could not have existed before the 5th. century A.D.

    namaste everyone.

    ShrI Abhinava VidyAtIrtha SwamigaL who was an earlier pontiff of the Shringeri ShAradA MaTham explains* that the term 'prasanna-vadanaM' in the shlokam refers to GaNesha because "it is the opinion of our ancestors that the term 'prasanna' includes a meaning 'elephant' among its many meanings."

    Orthodox VaiShNavas who rarely if ever worship GaNesha, would have none of any reference to GaNesha in this shloka. Orthodox Shaivas and smArthas on the other hand see only the reference to GaNesha because this is always the first shloka of any pUjA or dhyAna--meditation or other kind of karma--religious performance.

    Typically, whenever this shloka is recited, the reciter gently taps the sides of his head just over the ears with his/her knuckles. This is to let the amRutam--nectar in the shiras--brain chakra to course down the nADis.

    I remember to have read somewhere that the names of five Rishis are mentioned in this shloka, but I can't place the reference or remember the names of the Rishis. I vaguely know that there was a Rishi by name ViShNu, Bharata was another, but the others? Any idea?

    **********

    Here is a connection between the phrase 'prasanna vadanaM' and GaNesha:

    pra = forward, to extend
    sad = droop, sunk
    vadanam = face
    prasanna vadanam = forward sunk face, as that of an elephant

    pra = forward, to extend
    sad = droop, sunk
    vadanaM = mouth
    prasanna vadanam = a mouth that is drooping, as that of an elephant

    pra = forward, to extend
    sana = the flapping of an elephant's ears
    prasanna vadanaM = extended mouth with flapping ears, so an elephant

    Additionally, it is amazing to note the connection of the root 'sad' with the elephant!

    sadAdAna = always exuding rut-fluid (as an elephant); an elephant in rut
    sadAmada, sadAmatta = always in rut
    sadAna = being in rut
    sadri = an elephant
    sajjana = caparisoning an elephant
    sana = the flapping of an elephant's ears

    GaNesha of this shloka, is thus of prasanna vadanaM = an elephant face which is bright and with flapping ears.

    Namassadhasae.

    vishnu:' means 'காப்பாற்றுபவர்' ('the person who protects'). . பெருமாள் என்று வழங்கும் ஸ்ரீ ஹரிக்கு மருஹன் தானே இவர். இவர் காப்பாற்றினால் ஆகாதா?

    'பிரசன்ன வதனம்' means manthahasamana மலர்ந்த பிரகாசமான mukham.

    16 namas of Pillayar combined together as one sloka, which starts as 'Sumukascha ekadhanthascha........ '. 'Sumuka:' is the first name of pillayar in this list. This means 'காட்சிக்கு எளியன்'. சுமுக: என்பதற்கு எதிர்ப்பதம்தான் 'கடு கடு முகம் கொண்டவன்', 'எள்ளும் கொள்ளும் வெடிக்கும் முகம்' 'வள வள வள்ளல்' என்று நாம் வழக்கத்தில் சொல்வது. It is practical to think that when we go to see a person (that too an important person who can favour us), it is advantageous for us if the person shows good face.

    There is no specific reason to say that this 'suklam bharatham' slokam is on Vinayaka. How we relate this to pillayar? 'Sarva vignopasanthayae' is the request (verb portion) of this sloka. This thus refers to pillayar, as he is considered the raja for vignas. I read this explanation in a book which was a compilation of the views of Paramacharya, exclusively on Pillayar. Kindly note that the words are not exactly the same used by Maha Periyavar.and t5his is not a verbatim quote.

    அவரவர் இச்சையில் எவை எவை உற்றவை அவை தருவித்தருள் பெருமாளே!
