PRAYERS TO MAHAGANAPATI
 

Before starting the puja proper, it is essential to contemplate Mahaganapati to assure ourselves that no obstacles interfere with a smooth performance of the puja rituals. Thus, with folded hands chant the following:

Karishyamaanasya karmanaha nirvigghnena Parisamaaptyarttham

Aadhou mahaaganapati smaranam karishye

So that the ceremonies we are about to undertake proceed to completion without any obstacles we contemplate on Mahaganapati Similarly the gruhadevata, i.e. the family Godhead, needs to be invoked as He/She is ever present bestowing protection to the family at all times. Chant as follows: 

Gruha devataam ddhyayaami

Ddhyaanam  samarpayaami
