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 continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
