Translation: Obeisance to Lord Gaṇeśa. Nārada teaches “Those who bow their heads in obeisance to the son of Gourī, Vināyaka who is the refuge protector of his devotees shall attain longevity, fulfillment of all desires and fortune prosperity. Thereafter the great sage takes the twelve most holy names of Sri Gaṇeśa [in the order of the twelve zodiac houses]. He concludes that whosoever repeats these twelve names at dawn, noon and dusk shall always remove every obstacle and trouble in his path to sure success and attain good fortune.
Students desiring knowledge and learning shall attain their wish while those desiring wealth, obtain wealth.
Couples desiring children shall be blessed with progeny while the spiritualists aspiring for mokṣa shall get sad-gati (guru and path to attain salvation).
By continuously reciting this hymn as described, these objects and constant association with Śrī Gaṇeśa is attained in six months. If continued for a year, then without doubt, siddhi (perfection, expertise) is attained. Making eight copies of this hymn [writing on paper using red ink] and distributing to eight learned people (brāhmaṇa) brings wisdom and great knowledge.

Badhak damana mantras

The mantras associated with the Ganesha Yantra have been taught in Mantra Mahodadhih of Mahidhara. The damana (supression) bija (phoneme) is suffixed to these twelve names of Ganesha to obtain the badhak damana mantras. These mantras remove all obstacles and ensure that the work is completed successfully.
