A Ganesha stotra says: Mushika Vahana Modaka Haste,
which means,
Whose carrier is Mouse, and Who holds Modaka on His Hand.

Other members have written on Sri Ganesha, and I will write on Rat.

One day the disciple sat beneath the banyan tree with a picture of a rat. Beneath that was written: Rats speed up renunciation.

cguru: What is the reason for your admiring the rats and how do they speed up renunciation?

d: I was attached to some useless possessions in my house which I could not throw off. I read the lives of many saints and heard their messages of renunciation; all sounded admirable but could not make me throw off my attached possessions. Then entered rats in my life.

cguru: Then?

d: The rats tore off core parts of my possessions into bits and pieces, and I was forced to throw them off. So what could not happen for several years happened in a few days. So I say: Rats speed up renunciation.

cguru: Jai Sri Ganesh.
Homage to the Universal Being...Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ...

In Ganesha and Mudgala Purana, Sri Ganesha is the supreme God. The word "Jyestha" (literally meaning eldest) used in a mantra to invoke Ganapati is interpreted as the first God. All other Gods are created by Him. His play as the son of Shiva is only a play.

Lambodara, literally meaning large belly, signifies that He contains the entire Universe within Him. One of the Puranas related to Ganesha says that Ganesha showed Vishwaroopa to Shiva and Vishnu inside His stomach.

The trunk of Ganesha represents the symbol of Omkara, and He is Mangala Murti, i.e. with an auspicious form. He is Vighnaraja, the best in removing obstacles.

He is "pranamya shirasa devam", the God Who is to be worshipped first.

Jai Sri Ganesh

One of the name of Sri Ganesha is "Shurpakarna", which means Whose Ears are like Fans. Fanning through those ears, Ganesha cools the devotees from the heat of the worldly life.

On the other hand He is "Vakratunda", meaning Who has a curved trunk. Shaped like Omkara, the trunk reminds the devotees of Pranava inside them.  His huge stomach, "Lambodara" reminds of the Vishwaroopa contained within Him.

Thus Ganesha on one hand cools the devotees from the worldly heat by fanning through His ears, on the other hand pours the sound of Pranava in their ears through His trunk.

There is a pun in a sloka on the word "Ekadanta", His single tusk, with the word "Anekadam", i.e. Who gives many things to His devotees. Thus the single tusk of Ganesha gives many things to the devotees.

The same sloka has a pun on the word "Gajanana", His Elephant face with the word "Agajananam"; "Agaja" is a name of Devi Parvati. The Lotus face of Devi Parvati is always on Sri Ganesha. Thus thinking of Sri Ganesha brings the blessings of Devi Parvati also.

Adi Shankara's Ganesha Pancharatnam describes Ganesha as holding the Joy ("Muda") of "Modaka". The Modaka which Sri Ganesha holds represents Divine Joy, which He bestows to His devotees.

So let us contemplate on the auspicious form of  Sri Ganesha and seek His blessings.

Jai Sri Ganesh
Homage to the Universal Being...Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ...

॥ श्रीगणपत्यथर्वशीर्षम् ॥

Ganapathi Atharva Seersha is a part of Atharva Veda. It is classified as an Upanishad and not as a chant; yet it is still considered universally as the greatest and most effective prayer addressed to Ganesh.
॥ श्रीगणेशाय नमः ॥
शान्ति मन्त्रः॥
ॐ भद्रं कर्णेभिः श्रृणुयाम देवा ।
भद्रं पश्येमाक्षभिर्यजत्राः ।
स्थिरैरङ्गैस्तुष्टुवांसस्तनूभिः ।
व्यशेम देवहितं यदायुः ।
ॐ स्वस्ति न इन्द्रो वृद्धश्रवाः ।
स्वस्ति नः पुषा विश्वैवेदाः ।
स्वस्ति नस्तार्क्ष्यो अरिष्टनेमिः ।
स्वस्ति नो बृहस्पतिर्दधातु ।
ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ।
  Aum! O gods,with our ears may we hear that which is auspicious;
Adorable Ones, with our eyes may we see that which is auspicious ;
while praising the gods with steady limbs, may we enjoy the life that
is alloted by the gods. May Indra of ancient fame be auspicious to us;
may Pusan and the Visva-Devas be propitious to us; may Tarksya, of
unhampered movement, be well disposed towards us; may Brihaspati
ensure our welfare.
Aum! Peace! Peace! Peace!
Shanti from Upanishads of Atharva Veda

Now let us explain the Ganapatiathrvashirsha,
The supreme of hority Ganapati (who is the authority of al ganas-Shakti,
Surya, Shiva, Vishnu and Brahmadeva) and who is OM.
ॐ नमस्ते गणपतये ।
त्वमेव प्रत्यक्षं तत्त्वमसि ।
त्वमेव केवलं कर्तासि ।
त्वमेव केवलं धर्तासि ।
त्वमेव केवलं हर्तासि ।
त्वमेव सर्वं खल्विदं ब्रह्मासि ।
त्वं साक्षादात्मासि नित्यम् ॥१॥
  You are the divine truth.
You are the only creator of the world.
You are the only protector of the world.
You are the only destroyer of the world.
You are the ultimate supreme divine power.
You are the only soul which is present party in each and every living form.

Here the meaning of Brahma is related with unknown total universal knowledge.
The origin of the total universe is sound. The first basic sound or knowledge is
self existent, ever lasting and full of happiness, full of spirit. The pictorial form of
this original sound is OM and an idol of Ganapati is a symbolic form of OM. All the
matter is created from the original sound. ( matter is made up of protons, neutrons
and electrons) atoms which are. It means original soul is present partly in each and
everything and it is the ultimate supreme knowledge means it is the Brahma and.
The Brahma(Lord Ganesha) controls from birth till death. [1]
ऋतं वच्मि ।
सत्यं वच्मि ॥२॥
  The great sage Ganaka is speaking the divine truth. [2]

अव त्वं माम् ।
अव वक्तारम् ।
अव श्रोतारम् ।
अव दातारम् ।
अव धातारम् ।
अवानूचानमवशिष्यम्‌‍ |
अव पश्चात्तात् ।
अव पुरस्तात् ।
अवोत्तरात्तात् ।
अव दक्षिणात्तात् ।
अव चोर्ध्वात्तात् ।
अवाधरात्तात् ।
सर्वतो मां पाहि पाहि समन्तात् ॥३॥
  (Oh Lord Ganesha) protect me. Protect the speaker, protect the listener,
protect the donor, protect the sustainer, protect the learner and the teacher.
Protet me from West direction, protect me from East, protect me from North,
protect me from South. Protect me from top, protect me from bottom. Protect
me from all sides and from surrounding. Lord Ganesha you protect me from
all the obstacles when I am praising about your appearance, when I am listening
about your merits/qualities. When I am passing the merit of your worshipping to
others you protect me. When I am learning your worshipping from the Guru you
protect me. The obstacles which will come across in my devotional worshipping
you protect them from East, West, North, South and other surrounding/directions. [3]

त्वं वाङ्‌मयस्त्वं चिन्मयः ।
त्वमानन्दमयस्त्वं ब्रह्ममयः ।
त्वं सच्चिदानन्दाद्वितीयोऽसि ।
त्वं प्रत्यक्षं ब्रह्मासि ।
त्वं ज्ञानमयो विज्ञानमयोऽसि ॥४॥
  You are the real speech and you are the real awakening. You are the real
spirit of joy. You are the real universal divine knowledge. You are the incomparable
everlasting real supreme joy. You are the perceptible/actual divine(substance)
or as cause of the universe or an enigma. You are the actual knowledge and actual
science and intelligence.(the meaning of science is spiritual experience) [4]

सर्वं जगदिदं त्वत्तो जायते ।
सर्वं जगदिदं त्वत्तस्तिष्ठति ॥
सर्वं जगदिदं त्वयि लयमेष्यति ।
सर्वं जगदिदं त्वयि प्रत्येति ।
त्वं भूमिरापोऽनलोऽनिलो नभः ।
त्वं चत्वारि वाक्पदानि ॥५॥
  The whole world is produced from you. The whole world is exists because of you.
The whole world merged into you. The whole world again one can experience in
only you. You are the Earth, water, air, fire and sky(the panchamahabhutas-the
five elements). You are the four states of speeches. Sounded soul which is the
origin of the Lord Ganesha is the self existent everlasting unexpressed total
universal divine knowledge. The three states creation, maintenance(taking care)
and destruction are originated from Lord Ganesha(Matter is originated from sound.
The protons, neutrons and electrons are made up of atom. Atom is made from matter.)
Proton, the creator(God Brahma), neutron the care-taker(God Vishnu) and electron the
destructer (God Shiva). The five elements are originated from Lord Ganesha. From
Ether the air is originated, from air the fire is originated, from fire the water is
originated, from water the earth is originated. A human being is also originated from
these five elements by processing cosmic energy. Lord Ganesha is the self existent
original sounded soul. The knowledge of sound is visible or invisible. We can hear it but
cannot see or feel it. Lord Ganesha(sound) is soul and the universe is the body. The
source of words are from Lord Ganesha-the original sound. The four states of speeches
are para, pashyanti, madhyama and vaikhari. The place of para is deep down inside the
region of naval. The place of pashyanti is in the heart
The 'Madhyanma' is the throat and 'Vaikhari' is the movement of tongue and lips. It means the presence of Lorf Ganesha(sound) is present in all the objects in the world. [5]

त्वं गुणत्रयातीतः ।
त्वं देहत्रयातीतः ।
त्वं कालत्रयातीतः ।
त्वं मूलाधारस्थितोऽसि नित्यम् ।
त्वं शक्तित्रयात्मकः ।
त्वां योगिनो ध्यायन्ति नित्यम् ।
त्वं ब्रह्मा त्वं विष्णुस्त्वंरुद्रस्त्वमिन्द्रस्त्वमग्निस्त्वं
वायुस्त्वं सूर्यस्त्वं चन्द्रमास्त्वं ब्रह्मभूर्भुवःस्वरोम् ॥६॥
  You are beyond the three human qualities(Raj, Satva, Tam) You are beyond the three human states(waking, dreaming and deep sleep)
You are beyond the three states of bodies(gross, stable and causal)
You are constantly exist in the place 'Muladhara' in human body.
You are the three powers/Shakti (required for creation preservation and destruction)
The sages always meditate on Lorf Ganesha. You are Brahma, you are Vishnu, you are Rudra,
you are Indra, you are Agni/God of Fire, you are Vayu/God of Air, you are Surya/Sun, you are
Chandra/Moon, you are the Bramha(an organism from all living being) and the Earth, the Sky,
the Heaven and the OM.

A human beings has three types qualities- Raj, Satva, Tam. Satva means Satvik means pure, holy or God fearing. A peson who is satvik, has always pure, noble clear thoughts. He is always well behaved well mannered thinking for others. Any type of bad element cold disturb him. 'Rajogna' means passionate. A person always thinks about what profit he will get if will do anything. He always accept positive results as per his thinking. If he doesn't achieve it he gets disturb. Could not keep control on his thoughts and mind. 'Tamasi' means hot headed irascible. A person is very hot tempered, selfish, his thoughts and his world is around eating, drinking, sleeping. They hurt to others never think care for anybodies feelings and duties towards anybody. Lorf Ganesha is beyond these three gunas.
Lord Ganesha always exist in place of 'Muladhara' according to the yoga there are seven 'Chakras'(states) in human body. These 'Chakras' are situated in various parts of the body. Through meditation a person can awake the power of thinking of body, correct decision power, through the power of kundalini which is in the 'Muladhara'. Lorf Ganesha the supreme power is situated in 'Muladhara'. [6]

part and 'bindu' is the latter form (pronunciation)
This is the 'Ganesh Vidya'(knowledge about Lord Ganesha) of Gananka Rishi

is  'OM Gam Ganapataye Namaha'.
The word Gam having the following four parts,

ॐ नमो वातप्रतये ।
नमो गणपतये ।
नमः प्रमथपतये ।

Salutation to God Shiva's son who destroys all obstacles and Varadmurti. A lord
who always give blessings to his devotees. The main Atharvashirsha ends here,
with salutations to Lord Ganesha . [10]

The following part is the recital of beneficial effects of the Atharvashirsha
एतदथर्वशीर्षं योऽधीते स ब्रह्मभूयाय कल्पते ।
स सर्वविघ्नैर्न बाध्यते ।
स सर्वतः सुखमेधते । 
स पंचमहापापात् प्रमुच्यते ।
सायमधीयानो दिवसकृतं पापं नाशयति ।
प्रातरधीयानो रात्रिकृतं पापं नाशयति ।
सायंप्रातः प्रयुंजानो अपापो भवति ।
सर्वत्राधीयानोऽपविघ्नोभवति ।
धर्मार्थकाममोक्षं च विन्दति ।
इदमथर्वशीर्षमशिष्याय न देयम् ।
यो यदि मोहाद् दास्यति स पापीयान् भवति ।
सहस्त्रावर्तनात् ।
यं यं काममधीते तं तमनेन साधयेत् ॥११॥
  Whoever will study and learn this Atharvashirsha, he will attain the
total divine knowledge. He will have the incomparable happiness, he does
not have any obstacles. He is free from five great sins(1. Killing of a Bhrahmin.
2. Drinking of wine. 3. Theft of gold. 4. Violating the bed of preceptor's wife.
5. Remain in the company of the four kinds of people indulging in the said sins.)
If one recites this hymn in the evening he is free from the sins done during the
 night. One who recites this in the morning and evening becomes sinless.
One who recites this hymn everywhere will be free from all the obstacles
and he will be safe from all the ways and gains all the four types of prowess namely,
1. Dharma-religin. 2. Artha - wealth. 3. Kama- desire. 4. Moksha-liberation.
The Atharvashirsha should not be taught to a student who doesn't have respect
about it. If anyone will learn this for acquiring money then he becomes and looses
his power. If one will recites this thousand times he will fulfill his desire. [11]

अनेन गणपतिमभिषिञ्चति ।
स वाग्मी भवति ।
चतुर्थ्यामनश्वन्‌जपति ।
स विद्यावान भवति ।
इत्यथर्वणवाक्यम् ।
ब्रह्माद्यचरणं विद्यात् ।
न बिभेति कदाचनेति ॥१२॥
  Who dies the coronation to Lord Ganesha with milk or water or sugarcane
juice by reciting continuously of Atharvashirsha becomes good speaker.
Who does the fasting on the fourth lunar day becomes learned person.
This is said by the great sage Atharva. If one will try to understand the
illusion of divine he becomes fearless and safe. [12]

यो दूर्वाङ्कुरैर्यजति ।
स वैश्रवणोपमो भवति ।
यो लाजैर्यजति ।
स यशोवान् भवति ।
स मेधावान् भवति ।
यो मोदकसहस्त्रेण यजति ।
स वांछितफलमवाप्नोति ।
यः साज्यसमिद्‌भिर्यजति ।
स सर्वं लभते स सर्वं लभते ॥१३॥
  He who worships with dhurva grass chanting this would become very rich,
He who worships with puffed rice chanting this , would become very famous,
He who worships with thousand modhakas would get all his desires fulfilled,
He who worships with fire sacrifice would get all that he wants. [13]*

अष्टौ ब्राह्मणान् सम्यग् ग्राहयित्वा सूर्यवर्चस्वी भवति ।
सूर्यग्रहे महानद्यां प्रतिमासंनिधौ वा जपत्वा ।
सिद्धमन्त्रो भवति ।
महाविघ्नात् प्रमुच्यते ।

Who recites this hymn at the time of solar eclipse, on the bank of the great rivers like Ganga, Yamuna, Godavari, or near the Lord Ganesha's idol becomes enlighten with the mantra(Siddha Mantra-is the mantra where one gets the power to achieve the thing, fruitfully and immediately as mentioned in the said mantra.)
He is freed from big obstacles.
He is freed from big faults.
He is liberated from great sins. One who understands this hymn correctly knows all.
This is the declaration of the Veda and Upanishada.

तेजस्विनावधीतमस्तु ।
मा विद्‌विषावहै ॥

Vinayagar Nanmani Maalai  is by Poet Subramania Barathi [விநாயகர் நான்மணி மாலை] – by some accounts this was published out of handwritten manuscripts in 1929 posthomously.  which has Venba, Kalithurai, Vrutham, and Agaval pieced together brilliantly.

Here is a short piece of the same sung beautifully by Sirgazhi Govindarajan
பக்தி யுடையார் காரியத்திற் பதறார், மிகுந்த பொறுமையுடன்
வித்து முளைக்குந் தன்மைபோல் மெல்லச் செய்து பயனடைவார்,
சக்தி தொழிலே அனைத்துமெனிற் சார்ந்த நமக்குச் சஞ்சலமேன்?
வித்தைக் கிறைவா, கணநாதா, மேன்மைத் தொழிலிற் பணியெனையே.

( The Meaning of the above : In the words of Bharathi, those who are truly devoted would not be impatient and would not do things in a hurry for they know how life grows out steadily out of seed; and for those who are given to understanding the divine power is everything ~ also know that all they need to do is to work with esteem rest being taken by Divine shakthi.  )

எனக்கு வேண்டும் வரங்களை

    இசைபேன் கேளாய் கணபதி!

மனத்திற் சலன மில்லாமல்,

    மதியில் இருளே தோன்றாமல்,

நினைக்கும் பொழுது நின்மவுன

    நிலைவந் திடநீ செயல்வேண்டும்.

கனகுஞ் செல்வம்,நூறுவயது:

    இவையும் தரநீ கடவாயே. 20

Here is a link to the complete Vinayakar Naanmani Malai of Subramania Bharati

Another link to some information about this work
பாரதியின் பகவத் கீதையும் விநாயகர் நான்மணி மாலையும்
Note : I am searching more about this wonderful work of Sri Subramania Barathi and those who have more links to the above work can share it here and today being the Auspicious day of Ganesh Chaturti happy to find this beautiful work of Subramania Barathiar .
