Hello Shashikant,

Thank you very much for uploading this. It is very helpful.

I have two questions:
- In shlokas 2, 3 and 4, do we address the body parts themselves or do we use them as adjectives to refer to Lord Ganesh Himself?
for e.g when we say 'lambodaram' are we addressing the belly or using it as an adjective to say 'the one who is large bellied' ? and what do you mean by 'sixth to the huge'? It seems incomplete.

- Is there any specific reason you did not include the closing phrase - || iti shree Naradpurane, sankatanashanam, Shree MahaGanapatistotram sampoornam ||

Thanks again.

"first to the curved-trunked, and second to the one-tusked"
curved-trunked = one with curved trunk.
We are referring to Lord Ganesha himself, with names about his attributes.
This is called bahuvrIhi samAsa, where A+B=C, and C is not either about A or about B, but about a third entity which is A+B (curved + trunk = ONE WITH curved trunk, and not about curved or about trunk)

In English we may say Big-Foot = one with big feet, or Red-Nose = one with red nose (reindeer) etc.

RAJESH said...

Can anybody tell the meaning of gaM

shashi said...

gaM here is used a beej shabda. taking the first letter of ganesha and adding the 'aM'.
beej shabda interpretations can then go in length discussing other aspects, but the basic idea is this.
