Yama's Ganesa Ashtotharam

From Hindupedia, the Hindu Encyclopedia

Translated By P.R.Ramachander

Gods are worshipped by chanting their 108 names. These names mostly describe the qualities of the God. Some names point out their various relationships and stories. In this Ashtotharam Lord Yama, the God of death, tells his assistants not to go near the person who chants these 108 names.
