Samantrak Ganapati Stotram

Samantrak Ganapati Stotram
Samantrak Ganapati Stotram is in Sanskrit and it is written by Shri Vasudevananda Saraswati (Shri Tembe Swami). This Ganapati Stotra is called as Samantrak as this stotra includes a Ganesh Mantra in it. However this Mantra can be understood if you know to read Sanskrit script of this stotra in devnagiri.
God Ganesh festival is celebrated every year mainly in Maharashtra from Bhadrapad Shudha Chaturthi to Bhadrapad Shudha Chaturdashi. That is in all ten days. Bhadrapada is a name of the month. This year this festival period started from 11th of September to 22nd September 2010. On the first day we bring idol of God Ganesh, keep in our house at a place well decorated, worship the God Ganesh, and recite many Mantras, Stotras of God Ganesh and ask for his blessings. We believe that God Ganesh destroys all our troubles, difficulties and bless us with good intelligence, skill in arts, good speech, good Memory, good poetry, good oratory, happy, healthy, wealthy, peaceful and prospers life. The idol of God Ganesh is kept in the house for 1 and half day or five days or seven or ten days according to the customs of every house. There is also a social function and people collectively keep God Ganesh idol in a big well decorated place/hall. Some idols are very big though very pious. People rush to see and bow to God Ganesh at such places. For all ten days of this festival, the surrounding/atmosphere is filled with happiness, Enthusiasm, intense devotion. It is really a great pleasure to visit cities like Poona, Mumbai in Maharashtra, India in these festival days. I am uploading this Stotras of God Ganesh and asking the blessing from God Ganesh for all of us.
