the eliminator of sins of those who have bowed before Him
we bow before Lord Vinayaka in devotion

May Goddess Saraswati, who is fair like the jasmine-colored moon, and whose pure white garland is like frosty dew drops; who is adorned in radiant white attire, on whose beautiful arm rests the veena, and whose throne is a white lotus; who is surrounded and respected by the Gods, protect me. May you fully remove my lethargy, sluggishness, and ignorance.

A process of offering is Brahman (Brahman= the holy or sacred power that is the source and sustainer of the universe), the act of offering is Brahman, the instrument of offering is Brahman, the fire to which the offering is made is also Brahman. For such a one who abides in Brahman, by him alone Brahman is reached.
