Which was composed by sage Narada at olden times,
If read daily during worship, would lead to gradual Victory.

After determining if this is read daily for a year,
He would get a great son who would be a divine devotee of Krishna.
Yasawinam cha Vidwamsam dhaninam chiranjeevinam,

Ihaiva cha sukham bhakthyaa anthe yanthi harer padam.
He would become famous, very learned, rich, with long life,
By the grace of Lord Ganesha he would have great wealth and spotless fame.
They would live with pleasure and attain the feet of Lord Vishnu.
Ithi Sri Narada pancharathre jnanamrutha sare pradhaika rather Ganapathi stotram sampoornam.
