May 2009 Ganesha Homa at Spiritual Park

Lord Pancha Mukha Ganapati looks magnificent on the first Sunday of May for the Ganesha Homa ceremony at the Spiritual Park.

Devotees are already there singing devotional songs before the sacred fire is lighted.

The Homa is lighted in the pit just a little further off the huge granite Ganapati murthi.

Devotees inside the tarpaulin tent. Plans are in motion to fix permanent structures to provide better accommodation to devotees in future.

and of a Siva deep in contemplation!
