Ganesa Dwadasa Nama stotram

(Taken from Narada Purana)

Translated by P.R.Ramachander

Pranamya sirasa devam,
Gauri putram, Vinayakam,
Bhakthya Vyasa smaren nithya,
Mayu Kama Artha Siddhaye.

The learned one, who wishes,
For more life, wealth and love,
Should salute with his head,
Lord Ganapathi who is the son of Parvathy.

Prathamam Vakra thundam cha,
Ekadantham dveethiyakam,
Trithiyam Krishna pingalaksham,
Gajavakthram Chathurthakam.

Think him first as god with broken tusk,
Second as the God with one tusk,
Third as the one with reddish black eyes,
Fourth as the one who has the face of an elephant.

Lambhodaram panchamam cha,
Sashtam Vikatameva cha,
Sapthamam Vignarajam cha,
Dhoomra varnam thadashtamam.

Fifth as the one, who has a very broad paunch,
Sixth as the one, who is cruel to his enemies,
Seventh as the one, who is remover of obstacles,
Eighth as the one who is of the color of smoke.

Navamam phala chandram cha,
Dasamam Thu Vinayakam,
Ekadasam Ganapathim,
Dwadasam the gajananam.

Ninth as the one who crescent in his forehead,
Tenth as the one, who is the leader of remover of obstacles,
Eleventh as the leader of the army of Lord Shiva,
And twelfth as the one who has the face of an elephant.

Dwathasaithani namani,
Trisandhyam Ya paden Nara,
Na cha vigna bhayam thasya,
Sarva sidhi karam dhruvam.

Any one reading these twelve names,
At dawn, noon and dusk,
Will never have fear of defeat,
And would always achieve whatever he wants.

Vidyarthi labhadhe vidhyam,
Danarthi labhathe danam,
Puthrarthi labhathe puthran,
Moksharthi labhathe gatheem.

One who pursues education will get knowledge,
One who wants to earn money will get money,
One, who wishes for a son, will get a son,
And one who wants salvation will get salvation.

Japeth Ganapathi sthothram,
Shadbhir Masai phalam labeth,
Samvatsarena sidhim cha,
Labhathe nathra samsaya.

Results of chanting this prayer,
Of Ganapathi will be got within six months,
And within a year, he would get all wishes fulfilled,
And there is no doubt about this.
dear all,
just adding the sanskrit version here and one more line in the Phala Shruti of the english version too.
I like the last line which says"whoever who writes this and distributes it to 8 brahmanas will be blessed with knowlege"
There are lots of brahmanas here.....

Pranamya shirasa devam Gowriputhram Vinaayakam
Bhakthaavaasam smarenithyam Aayuhkamartha siddhaye

Prathamam vakrathundamscha Ekadhantham dhvitheeyakam
Thrutheeyam Krishna pingaksham Gajavakthram Chathurthakam

Lambodharam panchamamcha shashtam vikatameva cha
Sapthamam Vignarajendra Dhoomravarnam thathasthakam

Navamam Balachandramcha dhasamanthu Vinaayakam
Ekaadasham Ganapathim dhvadhasanthu Gajanamam

Dhvadhasaithani namani thrisandhyam yah patten naraha
Na cha vignabayam thasya sarvasiddhikaram prabho

Vidyaarthi labathe vidyam dhanaarthi labathe dhanam
Puthraarthi labathe puthraan mokshaarthi labathe gathim

Japeth Ganapathi sthothram shadbirmasai phalam labeth
Samvathsareana siddhincha labathe naathra samsayaha

Ashtabhyo Brahmanebhyascha likithva yah samarpaeth
Thasya vidya bhaveth sarvaa Ganeshya prasadhathaha
