Thank you for this info. It has helped me reunite with my ancestral roots. We were all once Vinayaks. Split up in that area and have forgotten this prayer that is still spoken to this day. It took me awhile to get it at heart. Like there was a barrier preventing me from calling Vishnu my God. But God is God all our God. Practice praying in various languages, it helps. Re-establishes ancestral alliances. Love will prevail. Namaste
