yasya – Those; Dvirada – Elephant; vaktra – Face; pari- remove; ;para-another; satam-hundred
vighnam – obstacles;  nighnanti- devoted to; satatam-continously; tam- them; asraye- surrender.

GajAnan (the double-tusked elephant-faced nitya-sUri) and hundreds of such nitya suris, who always remove all obstacles, form
the members of the corps of vishvaksena. I take resort to them.

Those Elephant faced Gajanan/Ganesha and hundreds of such Nitya Suris (brave, valliant God like warriors) who remove obstacles are devoted to (members of)  Vishvaksena . I surrender/resort to them.

Sukla – White; Ambara – Cloth; Dharam – Wearing;  Visnum – Vishnu ; Sasi – Moon ; Varnam – Color; Chatur – Four ; Bhujam – arms

Prasanna – Pleasant ; Vadanam – Face; Dhyaye – Meditate ; Sarva – everything/every ; Vighna(o) – obstacle ; Santa – Peace ; Santaye – brings peace.

 

For removing obstacles and bringing peace, I meditate on Vishnu who is wearing a white Cloth, who has a color of moon , who has four arms and who has pleasant/placid expression on his face.

For the eradication of all obstructions) One should meditate  upon vishNu Who is clad in white robes, Who has a moonlike lustre,   Who has four arms and Who has a beneficient face
