the one who has the weapons the noose (pasa) and angusam.

You are the most sacred and supreme God. the one who has the mouse as his vehicle   

and you are always the one who is affectionate and also loved by sages. 

mOdadi ninnaya pAdava tOrO

sAdhu vanditane Adaradindali

show me your sacred feet and allow me to sing with pleasure at your feet.  You are the  one who is worshiped by sadhus and sages respectfully, show mercy and always make me remember to worship Lord Purandara vittala – the one who has the lotus navel.

Interesting points from the song Gajavadana Beduve : 

Lord Sri Ganesha is the Supreme God. He is the son of Lord MahaShiva and Devi Parvati. Ganesha is popularly worshiped under different names like Parvathi Tanaya, Sumukha, Gajanana, Ekadanta, Kapila, Gajakarna, Lambodara, Ganadhayaksha, Vikath, Vidhnanashaka, Vinayaka, Dhumraketu, Bhalchandra and so on.

Sri Purandaradasa’s ankita nama is “Purandara Vittala.”  we can see his ankita nama in all of his songs. 

In Gajavadana Beduve Song, Purandaradasa prays to Lord Ganesha for strength and attention so that he can sing about Lord Purandara(Lord Vishnu) all the time! 

Lord Ganesh holds the “pasha,” or noose, which is traditionally held by the God of Death, yama. Here, it means  that He is above God of death, Lord Yama, and that if you come to His feet, you will not face death. Another weapon is Angusam- An elephant might grow to be really large. but,  under the power of the weapon Angusam used by mahouts, an elephant can be handled and trained. So,  Lord Ganesha, likewise, holds it and demonstrates the importance of self-control.
