Lord Ganesha as we all Hindus know, is worshiped on many religious and important occasions, especially at the beginning of marriages, buying a house. Dancers and musicians, particularly in southern India, begin performances of arts such as the Bharatnatyam dance with a prayer to Ganesha. So, here comes the lyrics for the famous Ganesha song by Shri Purandara Dasaru.
sharanu siddhi vinayaka sharanu vidyA pradAyaka
sharaNu parvati tanaya muruti sharaNu musika vahana
nitila netrana varada putrane nagabhusasa priyane
tatila tankita komalangane karna kundala dharane ||1||
batta muttina hara padaka bahu hasta catustane
itta todugeya hema kankaNa pasha ankusha dharane||2||
kuksi maha lambodarane iksu capana gelidane
paksi vahana siri purandara vittalana nija dasane||3||
