(From Varaha Puranam)
(Here is a rare stotra addressed to Lord Ganapathi from the chapter on birth of Ganapathi from Varaha Purana. The stotra mentions that Ganapathi was born from the mouth of Lord Shiva. It recommends offering Sesame seeds to the Lord and eating it. This great stotra was sent to me by Sri Krishna Muralidharan.)
Namasthe Gaja Vakthraya , Namasthe Gana Nayaka,
Vinayaka Namosthesthu, Namasthe Chanda Vikrama,
Salutations to the elephant headed one, Salutations to the leader of Ganas,
Salutations to remover of obstacles , Salutations to greatly valorous one.
Namosthu they Vighna karthre , Namasthe Sarpa Mekhala,
Namasthe Rudhra Vakthrotha , pralambha jatarasritha.
Salutations to one solving obstacles , Salutations to one who wears Serpent as belt,
Salutations to one who rose from the mouth of Rudra and whose stomach depends on his hanging trunk.
Sarva Deva Namaskradh avighnam kuru Sarvadhaa
Due to the salutations of all devas, please remove obstacles always.
Listing of benefits
Yevam sthuthaa devair Mahathma Gana Nayaka,
Abhishiktham thu Rudrena Somaaya apathyathangatha.
After worshipping like this to the lord of Ganas , the devas,
Anointed Rudra who remedied the curse on the moon.
Yethas Chathurthi sampannam Ganadhyakshasya Parthiva,
Yathas thatho ayam mahathim thidhinaam paramam thithim.
When the Chathurthi Thithi was complete , the king who removes obstacles was born,
And because of that that great thithi became a divine thithi.
Yethasyaam yas thilaan Bhukthwaa Bhakthyaa Ganapathim Nrupa,
Aaradhayathi Thasya aasu thushyathe naathra samsaya,
Those who eat the seasame with devotion to Ganesa,
I mmediately after worshipping him , without any doubt will make that Lord happy.
Yas chaithath padathe stotram , yas chaithath sruniyath thadhaa.
Na thasya vighnaa jaayanthe , na papam sarvadhaa nrupa.
Those who read this prayer or those who listen to it ,
Will never face any obstacles or sins by the grace of the king like lord.
Varaha Purane, Vinayakothpathir Nama trayovimsadhyaaye sri Vinayaka Sthuthi sampoornam.
Thus the prayer of Vinayaka which occurs as the 23rd chapter of Varaha Purana called “Birth of Ganesa” comes to an end.
