Sukhkarta Dukhharta … Suravaravandana

Sukhkarta Dukhharta Varta Vighnach
Nurvi Purvi Prema Kripa Jayachi
Sarvangi Sundara Uti Shendurachi
Kanthi Jhalake Maala Muktaphalanchi
Jai Deva Jai Deva Jai Mangalamurti
Darshanamatre Manakamana Purti

Salutations the giver of joy, the remover of sorrow, and the one who eliminates hurdles
the one who spreads love and grace everywhere
the one with a beautiful body smeared with vermilion
and the one who sports a pearl necklace
Hail Lord Ganesha, the one who epitomises auspiciousness
Our wishes manifest into reality just with one look

Ratnakhachita Phara Tuja Gaurikumara
Chandanachi Uti Kumkumkeshara
Hire Jadita Mukuta Shobhato Bara
Runjhunati Nupure Charni Ghagaria
Jai Deva Jai Deva Jai Mangalamurti
Darshanamatre Manakamana Purti

We offer you a seat studded with precious jewels, O son of Gowri
O one with sandal body and vermillion on your forehead
The crown studded with diamonds adorns your head beautifully
The tinkles of your anklets sound so sweet.
Hail Lord Ganesha, the one who epitomises auspiciousness
Our wishes manifest into reality just with one look

Lambodara Pitambara Phanivara Bandhana
Sarala Sonda Vakratunda Trinayana
Daasa Ramacha Vaata Pahe Sadana
Sankati Pavave Nirvani Rakshave Suravaravandana
Jai Deva Jai Deva Jai Mangalamurti
Darshanamatre Manakamana Purti

O one with a potbelly, drapped in yellow attire, and a snake tied around your waist
O Vakratunda with a curved truck and three eyes
Ramdas (who wrote this aarti) is awaiting your arrival at home
Bless us during challenging times and save us from troubles, our humble prayers
Hail Lord Ganesha, the one who epitomises auspiciousness
Our wishes manifest into reality just with one look
