With Om as the beginning, this (teaching) may protect both of us (The master and the disciple), may be useful to both of us. Both of us will be victorious. Our knowledge will shine (with this teaching.) (Both of us will shine with this teaching.). We will be never jealous. O Gods! We will use our ears for good purposes (we will not listen foul language). We will use our eyes for good purposes (we will not see dirty, ugly or unholy things). With our strong bodies, we will spend rest of our life to serve you (God) and to praise you (God).

Lord Indra may take care of our welfare. Lord Pusha may take care of our welfare. Arishtanemi, the mighty eagle may do all good things for us. The teacher sage Bruhaspati may give victory. Let there be peace! Let there be peace! Let there be peace! This is the start of Atharvashirsha.

Atharva Rushi is explaining his experience about Ganesh, which led him to the self-realization for the benefit of the Universe. "OM NAMASTE GANAPATAYE" is a simple and easily available mantra for the public. Besides this, it is customary to start any writing with the auspicious OM word. Atharva Rushi says:

Let my salutations be to Ganapati who is the master of Brhama and other prominent gods. Lord Ganapati, you are the essence of the Universe as we see it, in actuality. You are the only one who is the Creator. You are the only one who is the Guardian. You are the only one who is the Destroyer. You (and only You) are the Universe as mentioned in the Shrutis about "this Whole Universe". Evidently You are the ever-lasting Spirit. (Atharva Rushi says) "I am telling (you) as explained. (Atharva Rushi says) "I am telling (you) the Truth.

(While facing the idol of Ganesh,Atharva Rushi says) "You protect me, I am talking about You so protect me. I am listening about You so protect me. I am giving knowledge about You so protect me. I am making the things required for your services so protect me. You protect my disciple who is sitting beside the teacher. (While I perform your services with devotion) Protect me from the west Side, protect me from the east Side, and protect me from the north side. Protect me from the south side, protect me from above, protect me from below and protect me from all other sides."

"You are in the spoken word, you are in the life, you are blissful, you are the Universe, You are pure, bliss and there is nobody like you. You are really the Universe. You are the Knowledge and you are also beyond the Knowledge."
