Question
Dear Sir,

Is there a Ganesha refuge Mantra that can be used without initiation (for Bhakti)?
If yes, do you know a site where I can learn the proper pronunciation?

Regards,
Alexandra

Answer
Gajananam Bhoota Ganadi Sevitam,
Kapittha Jambu phalasara bhakshitam
Umasutam Shoka Vinasha karanam
Namami Vighneshvara pada pankajam


"Oh Elephant-faced, worshiped by the existing beings, of all living beings, tasting the elephant apple (kaith) and jambolana (jamun), the Son of Uma, destroyer of grief, I bow to the lotus feet of Ganesh who is lord of all."
