The Ganesha vigrahas in Flushing, New York temple and the Dodda Ganapati temple in Basavanagudi, Bangalore need to be compared before labeling this Great Ganapati in Coiamabtore as the biggest vigraha. Jai Ganesha.
Ahhh, but surely it is not the size of the murthi, but the power of the life-changing energy from within it that counts. I would much rather have a 2 inch murthi that winks at me, understanding my every karma, than a gargantuan one that feels empty. Jai Ganapati
Trying to compare is not enough to get to the answer of your question.
As the prayer- Aum Shuklam Baradharam Vishnum….- goes on, we shift our mind to praise the Gods aspects of being divine moonlight that exist everywhere(omnipresence) and his four great shoulders etc. Can we ever imagine how big is everywhere for His Omnipresence? Of course no, because the mind cannot give that reality, its beyond the mind, that is its you, as a soul, equal to everyone and everything as Parasivam…
I tried to answer it, though that question brings me to the worlds of infinities.:)
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadesha: "Detachment from Experiences; Importance of Daily Vigil" (May 5, 2013)
All experiences are good experiences, necessary to get us here. Awareness of aspects of ourselves that are constantly changing is a liberating perception, breaking our chains to mundane areas, detaching from instinctive and intellectual to go into superconscious. The greatest challenge facing youth today is the lack of relating to the devotional side of Hinduism. Daily practice, daily vigil, moves us forward spiritually.
