Gajananam Bhutagaanadi Sevitam
Kapittha Jambu Phala Saara Bhakshitam
Uma Sutam Shokavinaasha Kaaranam
Namaami Vigneshvara Paada Pankajam
I prostrate myself before the lotus feet of Vigneshvara (Ganesha), the son of Uma, who destroys sorrow, who is served by the host of angels, who has the face of an elephant, who partakes of the essence of kapittha and jambu fruits.
Shadananam Kumkuma Raktavarnam
Mahaamatim Divya Mayura Vaahanam
Rudrasya Sunam Surasainya Natham
Guhaam Sadaaham Sharanam Prapadye
I always take refuge in Guha of six faces (Subramanya), who is of deep red color like kumkuma, who possesses great knowledge, who has the divine peacock to ride on, who is the son of Rudra (Siva), and who is the leader of the army of the devas (gods and angels).
Yaa Kundendu Tushaara Haara Dhavalaa
Yaa Shubhra Vastraavritaa
Yaa Vina Varadanda Mantita Karaa
Yaa Shvetaa Padmaasanaa
Yaa Brahmaachyuta Shankara Prabhritibhi
Devaihi Sadaa Pujitaa
Saa Maam Paatu Saraswati Bhagavati
May the Goddess Saraswati, who wears a garland white like the kunda-flower, the moon and the snow, who is adorned with pure white clothes, whose hands are ornamented with the vina and the gesture of blessings, who is seated on a white Lotus, who is always worshipped by Brahma, Vishnu, Siva and other gods, who is the remover of all inertness and laziness, protect me.
Om Namah Shivaaya Gurave

Salutations to Guru Shiva, who is the embodiment of Existence-Knowledge-Bliss Absolute, in whom worldliness does not exist, who is ever peaceful. Salutations to Sri Sivananda, Salutations to Swami Brahmananda.

Om. May that protect us both, teacher and pupil. May that cause both to enjoy the bliss of liberation. May we both exert to find out the true meaning of the scriptures. May our learning be brilliant. May we never quarrel with each other. Om. Peace, peace, peace.
MAHA MRITYUNJAYA MANTRA (repeat 3 times)
Om Trayambakam Yajaamahe

Om. We worship the three-eyed One (Lord Siva) who is fragrant and who nourishes well all beings; may He liberate us from death for the sake of Immortality even as a cucumber is severed from its bondage to the creeper.

Om. That is whole. This is whole. From the whole the whole becomes manifest. From the whole, when the whole--if negated--what remains is again the whole. Om. Peace, peace, peace.
