Poetical Portrayal

जय हो गणपति बाप्पा मौर्य,

आसमान से ऊँचा वट जिनका, विकट जिनका शौर्य।

गुलाबी रंग, लाल गुलाल, विभिन्न उनकी काया,

सचेत मन, नवरंग जन, प्रतापी है उनकी माया।।

~

शिव पुत्र कहते जिसे, पार्वती माई जिनकी,

शुभ-आरंभ जिनसे होता,रमणीक है धुनकी जिनकी,

जग चलता जिसके सहारे, जाते जिसपर सब बलिहारे,

मंगलमूर्ति वही हैं, जिन्हें नमन करते ये चाँद सितारे।।

~

सिद्धिदाता, सिद्धीविनायक, अनेकों नाम हैं उनके,

सर झुकाए खड़ा हर राही, बस विनयशील बनके,

गजानन तो विघ्नहर्ता हैं, अलौकिक उनकी काया है,

जिसने भी पुकार लगायी, उसी ने सब कुछ पाया है।।
