This stotra is about the 16 names of Lord Ganesha along with phala shruti. This stotra is supposed to be from the 24th Prakarana of Upasana Khanda of Ganesa Purana.

In the above link it is given that the stotra is from Ganesha purana but it's not. There is a hint in the below document at page 21 that the stotra might be from Skanda purana

If anyone happens to know where exactly in Skanda purana the stotra is mentioned, kindly let me know.
