8. Ucishta Ganapati
The Shivanidhi portion includes descriptions of thirty-two forms of Ganapati that are mentioned frequently in devotional literature related to Ganesha.
There are also sculptural representations of these thirty-two forms in the temples at Nañjanguḍ and Chāmarājanagar (both in Mysore district, Karṇāṭaka), done about the same time as the paintings were done and also at the direction of the same monarch.
Each of the thirty-two illustrations is accompanied by a short Sanskrit meditation verse (dhyānaśloka), written in Kannada script. The meditation verses list the attributes of each form. The text says that these meditation forms are from the Mudgala Purana.

This information was given by Brahmanda Guruji Shri Narendra Babu Sharmaji, in his Bruhat Brahmanda programme telecasted in Zee Kannada Channel while speaking on 32 Forms of Ganapathi.
