thanks for reminder Sri Ravi, i would have passed over it, i had wanted to read it at leisure. I have known some, whose lives changed for the better by their sincere and devout chanting of Vinayakar agaval. This Agaval has some charm in it.

अर्जुन उवाच:

कैर्लिंगैस्त्रीन्गुणानेतानतीतो भवति प्रभो ।
किमाचारः कथं चैतांस्त्रीन्गुणानतिवर्तते ॥


arjuna uvāca:

kairliṅgaistrīnguṇānetānatīto bhavati prabho,
kimācāraḥ kathaṁ caitāṁstrīnguṇānativartate.

Arjuna said: What are the signs of the man who has risen
above the three gunas, O Lord? What is his action and how
does he surmount the gunas?

श्रीभगवानुवाच:

प्रकाशं च प्रवृत्तिं च मोहमेव च पाण्डव ।
त द्वेष्टि संप्रवृत्तानि न निवृत्तानि काङ्क्षति ॥


śrībhagavānuvāca:
prakāśaṁ ca pravṛttiṁ ca mohameva ca pāṇḍava,
ta dveṣṭi saṁpravṛttāni na nivṛttāni kāňkṣati.

The Blessed Lord said: He, O Pandava, who does not abhor or
shrink from the operation of enlightenment (the result of rising sattwa)
or impulsion to works (the result of rising rajas) or the clouding over of
the mental and nervous being (the result of rising tamas), nor longs
after them, when they cease.

14. 21, 22 [to continue]

(Translated by Sri Aurobindo)

न संसारापकर्शेण त्वया निर्वाणं ईप्सितम् ।
शान्तिस्तेऽधिगता नात सम्सारानुपलब्धितः ॥


Na samsaaraapakarshena tvayaa nirvaanam ipsitam
shaantisteadhigataa naata samsaaraanupalabdhitah

Nirvana has not been aimed at by you through the elimination of the samsara,
peace has been obtained by you, o Lord, through the non-perception of samsara

The invocatory verse is as follows:

திகட சக்கரச் செம்முக மைந்துளான்
சகட சக்கரத் தாமரை நாயகன்
அகட சக்கர வின்மணி யாவுறை
விகட சக்கரன் மெய்ப்பதம் போற்றுவாம்.

Here, thikadachakkara should be split as thigazh + thasakkara. This means Vinayaka has got ten hands.  dasam means ten.

With his five faces (chemmukam einthulAn) he has got ten hands.  The other lines are easy to understand. He has got a
chakrayudham. He is is seated in lotus. akatachakkara = agazh + chakkra = broad Space where all  stars. suns, galaxies are
contained. He is spread everywhere there.  Vikata chakkaran  + with that chakram, he makes all sports. Let us pray to his
PAdam which is padam = seat of liberation.

Now the controversy is how thikadachakkara could mean thigazh + dasa + kara. The audience said even Tolkappiyam,
Nannool etc., do not mention it. sandhi ilakkanam - it is called - where words can be combined only in a particular fashion.

Muruga came to the Sabha and showed a book of grammar called Veera Sozhiyam, which was not known to many.
There it is mentioned that zh+dha = ta. Hence thigazh + dasa means thikatach!  The audience then got satisfied.
 
Muruga who had come as a poet disappeared!               

Dear Sir, what a beautiful expression, this is the ultimate description of that supreme. In the Ganapati Atharvaasheersha (Veda mantra) we find similar expressions.
