Meaning: I worship God with a curved trunk and a huge body shining like a central sun. Allow him to remove the obstacles to all my actions and bring them to execution. Lord of luck, source of prosperity, luck and success; He is the Lord of the origin and the remover of physical and mental obstacles; Interestingly, he also creates hindrances in the way of the individuals who should be checked
