Guru chant

guru brahma guru vishnu
guru devo maheswara,
guru sakshat param brahma
tasmai sri guruve namaha

To that teacher that is creation,
to that teacher that is this very life,
To that teacher that is all challenge and transformation,
to that teacher within each of us,
To that teacher beyond all things – formless and divine,
I bow down and offer my life and efforts
Asato ma chantasato ma sadgamaya
tamso ma jyotirgamaya
mrityor ma amritamgama
Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti
Lead me from untruthfulness to truthfulness,
From darkness to light,
From death to immortality
Om, Peace, Peace, Peace

For the removal of all the obstacles in my effort, I meditate upon Ganesha, who wears a white garment, who is all pervading, who has a bright complexion (like a full moon), who has four shoulders, who has an ever smiling face.
I worship day and night that elephant faced Lord Ganesha who is like sun to the lotus face of Mother Parvati. Giver of many boons, the single tusked Ganesh, I salute Thee to give me a boon.We bow to lord Ganesha, remover of obstacles.
