ॐ वक्रतुण्ड महाकाय सुर्यकोटि समप्रभ ।
निर्विघ्नं कुरु मे देव सर्वकार्येषु सर्वदा ॥

Oṃ vakra-tuṇḍa mahā-kāya sūrya-koṭi samaprabha |
nirvighnaṃ kuru me deva sarva-kāryeṣu sarva-dā || 

O Gaṇeśa, god with the curved trunk, of great stature,
Whose brilliance is equal to ten million suns,
Grant me freedom from obstacles,
In all things, at all times.

DrPillai2

ॐ सह नाववतु । सह नौ भुनक्तु । सह वीर्यं करवावहै ।
तेजस्वि नावधीतमस्तु मा विद्विषावहै ॥
ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ।

Oṃ saha nāvavatu | saha nau bhunaktu |
saha vīryaṃ karavāvahai | tejasvi nāvadhītam astu mā vidviṣāvahai ||
Oṃ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ | 

May we together be protected,
May we together be nourished.
May we work together with vigor,
May our study be illuminating.
May we be free from discord.
Oṃ Peace, Peace, Peace!
