“The family sadhana for the final day is to bring forth love and harmony within all three worlds. Because of sadhanas well performed during the first four days, the family is now more open and aware of Ganesha’s grace, and their love for Him is now overflowing. On this day the entire family experiences an outpouring of love and tranquility from the great God Himself. His blessings fill the home and the hearts of everyone within it, inspiring them anew for the coming year.”
We are having a wonderful time here at Kauai Aadheenam, and wish you are, too.
We have two big Panchamukha murtis: this one in the courtyard and another one inside Kadavul.
Golden blessings to all.
Paramacharya Ceyonswami does an arati to Kadavul Temple’s Panchamukha Ganapati.
His blessings flow to Ganesha bhaktars, wherever they are.
Happy Pancha Ganapati! We wish you a sweet festival. We hope you enjoy the slideshow we prepared for you:
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "The Difference in Practice of Theism and Monism" (September 3, 2014)
During a puja we're in Theism, to receive the blessings of the Deity. After a puja we can go within our self in meditation, giving up the idea of an external Deity, Monism. Monistic Theism: Advaita Ishvaravada. Advaita means the Monism; Ishvara means the Theism.
In Shum we use two words that relate to that: shumif and dimfi. First, perfect your Theism. Then become a monist. That's called Saiva Siddhanta; one leads to the other.
