Shodasha Ganapathi stotram or Ganesha shodasha nama stotram is a prayer to 16 forms of Lord Ganesha. There is another prayer called ‘Shodasha Ganesha Dhyana stotram’ which is also dedicated to 16 forms of Ganesha. This mantra or stotra explains that those who worship Lord Ganesh before starting any auspicious program and ritual would not get any obstacles and if get any, that would be destroyed and the program will be accomplished.
