Lord Ganesh, having a curved trunk, a huge body and the brilliance of millions of suns, remove all obstacles in the way of all my actions, always.
Sri Ganesh is the elder son of Lord Siva and Goddess Parvathi, the Divine Couple of the universe. He is the leader (Isa) of Lord Siva's army and Bhutha Ganas, hence the name Ganesh. He is in fact reputed to remove all the obstacles (Vignas) in the path of progress and welfare of devotees. He therefore goes also by the name of Vigneswara. It is because of this special attribute of His, the devotees unfailingly invoke His prayer at the commencement of every action and enterprise, to complete their mission without any hardships or difficulties.
