  • Translation:
The sage Atharvana who had written the Atharvana vedam has had the vision of Lord   Gaeśa and the learned sage conveyed the mantra in a poetic form so that humanity can be benefitted from the Lord.

            He states that it is customary that we pray to the Lord before beginning of anything.

  Oh! Gaeśa the head of the Deva ganas, who is the first facet of Brahma-Tatva, who           created the whole universe, who maintains or destroys the universe, only you are the Atma, you are the supreme Lord, I bow to you and offer my salutations humbly.
