2013 Ganesha Chaturthi

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

Ga?e?a Chaturth? is a joyous celebration of Ga?e?as birthday. While elaborate temple p?j?s are held during this festival, worship is also given in the home shrine to a clay image of Ga?e?a 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 Ga?e?as release into universal consciousness.

The good-and-bad concept should be thrown out with a lot of other things, including the up-and-down concept. There is no good; there is no bad. You don't raise your consciousness, nor do you lower it.
