This book offers a translation of the Sanskrit Vinayakamahatmya with a transliterated version of the only printed edition of this text. It has no pretensions to reflect a detailed study of the manuscript material, but this is a desideratum. The translation itself has taken shape intermittently over the past eight years. Other projects have interrupted its progress and have meant that I have had to work on it on a fragmentary manner. I wish to acknowledge the participants in my Sanskrit reading group at La Trobe University, with whom I read through certain chapters of the Vinayakamahatmya in 2014. Their questions about the text and calls for clarification have definitely improved the translation. The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at La Trobe University provided me with financial support enabling me to visit manuscript libraries in India and Nepal.
