The agaval (20 minutes) is composed in nine ragas, signifying the navarasas (nine human emotions) of Vinayaga. The song starts in raga Kambodhi, followed by Aabhogi, Gowri Manohari and Ramapriya. The latter section of the song is tuned in raga Bhairavi, followed by Hindolam and Shanmuga priya. The song ends in Revathi highlighting the highest spiritual state of Kundalini. 
A mini symphony of percussion instruments is orchestrated towards the last section of the song depicting “Aananda Narthana” (joyous dancing) of Natya Ganapathy.
In the mediative song, we take the refuge in Ganesha and is praised in 48 syllables resonating the sound of OM.
