2013 Ganesha Chaturthi

This video covers the events of Kauai Aadheenam's August, 2013 Ganesha Chaturthi Abhishekam and visarjana.

Gaṇeśa Chaturthī is a joyous celebration of Gaṇeśa’s birthday. While elaborate temple pūjās are held during this festival, worship is also given in the home shrine to a clay image of Gaṇeśa that we make or obtain. At the end of the day we join together in a parade, called visarjana, to a river, temple tank, lake or seashore, where we immerse the image, symbolizing Gaṇeśa’s release into universal consciousness.

Let us look within and see if we are reacting to anything right now, holding any resentment, holding any fear. Let us know that that is just a gauge of experience of the instinctive nature. Loosen it and let it go.
