Meditation on Sri Nriththa Ganapathi
Paashaamkushaapoopa kudaara dantha
Chamchath karamkluptha varaamguleeyakam
Peethaprabhamkukshili karastha dantham
I worship Sri Ganesha, who is dancing and who is holding in his hands the noose, hook, sweet cake, dagger and tusk, who wears divine rings in His delicate fingers, whose hands sway (while dancing), who bears the broken tusk and whose belly shines with a golden hue.
