Narada said Let him continuously worship in his mind the son of Gauri, VinAyaka the refuge of his devotees, for attainment of longevity, desires and wealth First, as the one with the twisted trunk; Secondly, as the one with the single tusk. Thirdly, as the one with dark brown eyes; Fourthly, as the one with the elephant's mouth. Fifthly, as the one with the belly like a pot; Sixtly, as the grotesque one. Seventhly, as the king of obstacles; Eighthly, as the smoke-colored one. Ninthly, as the moon-crested one; Tenthly, as the remover of obstacles. Eleventhly, as the lord of all, Twelfthly, as the elephant-faced one. Whoever repeats these twelve names at dawn, noon and sunset, there is no fear of failure, nay, constant fortune. He who desires wisdom, obtains wisdom; he who desires wealth, obtains wealth. He who desires sons, obtains sons; he who desires liberation attains liberation. Whoever chants this hymn to Ganapati reaches him in six months, and in one year he reaches perfection, there is no doubt about this. Whoever makes copies of this and distributes them to eight Brahmana, he reaches wisdom immediately (all knowledge will be his), due to the grace of Ganesha.
