    Translation

    I adore Lord Bala Ganapati, in whose four hands are a banana, mango, jackfruit, sugar cane, and wood apple. He has the brilliance of the rising young sun and playfully does every deed.

    There is another way to show remorse for misdeeds. That is by performing seva, religious service, for persons you have wronged. Give them gifts, cook them food.
