As mentioned in the sloka that these names have to be read daily. In our home or even at least to be heard daily. As this can awaken the latent godliness that is in sublime under the layers of ignorance.
If not able to read them, hear atleast as some one utters te sloka everyday. Because the wordings also proceed to mention about when must be these names recited ?
Before starting education, Before marriage, Before every daily task. The words must be recited as he comes up to our rescue. All these tasks will proceed unhindered and in fruition by the varasiddi vinayaka, the invincible leader who stands behind us.
