GANESHA CHATURTHI 2021
September 10 · 07:00 CEST
THE REMOVER OF OBSTACLES
Ganesha Chaturthi marks the Appearance Day of Lord Ganesha. Lord Ganesha is the elephant-headed god also known as the granter of success and remover of obstacles. (That’s why we always honour him with our first prayer before conducting any other worship rituals.) He is the Lord of the Mind and represents intelligence and wisdom.
Ganesha is the Lord of the mind. Unless that mind is tamed and controlled, you will never be able to really feel love. – Paramahamsa Vishwananda
DID YOU KNOW?
Goddess Parvati, the wife of Lord Shiva, once fashioned a son out of tumeric paste and breathed life into him. She gave him strict orders to not let anyone disturb Her while She was bathing. Unaware of this fact, Lord Shiva decapitated the boy in a battle when Ganesha refused to let Shiva enter His own home. Parvati was so upset She threatened to destroy the material creation and unless Shiva brought Her son back to life. Due to the urgency of the situation, Shiva took the head of the first animal He found. As a result, the child was given the head of an elephant and a second chance for life.
ENJOY THE EXPERIENCE
To commemorate Ganesha’s Appearance Day, we will do special Ganesha prayers, pujas, abhishekam, and bhajans during our morning prayers. We will also share some of his lilas in satsang.
GIVE FROM YOUR HEART
When we offer our love to the Divine, the Divine showers us with blessings. Giving from the heart is a true blessing in and of itself. Giving without expecting anything in return multiplies the blessings even more, especially when you selflessly sponsor an event.
