Ganesh Chalisa (Hindi: गणेश चालीसा, "Forty chaupais on Ganesh") is a devotional song based on Lord Ganesh as the model devotee of the Hindu. It is a poem written in the Awadhi language. The Ganesh Chalisa has gained enormous popularity among the modern-day Hindus.[citation needed] Many of them recite it daily as a prayer.[citation needed]

Each of the forty verses of the Ganesh Chalisa conveys one particular form of blessing and, depending on the Bhava or Shraddha (faith and devotion) of the devotee, how the fruits of the particular verse are attained.
