Behind the Maha Ganapati temple is a breath-taking forest. Here Bodhinatha has been asked to bless a small area where devotees can meditate in nature. A statue of Dakshinamurti will be placed to look over the meditators as they go in and into themselves in silence.
The sacred location has been chosen and a kumbha of blessed water is poured.
Bodhinatha breaks a coconut in the spot where Dakshinamurti will be placed.
Ganesha is now brought out to lead in a procession around the temple
These youths have made their own Kavadi and will take part in the procession as well
All are uplifted by the strong darshan today
Bodhinatha and Iyer, the chief priest, over see the event
Kavadi, Kavadi Kavadi !!!
Temple Trustees present Bodhinatha with a commemorative plate of the auspicious festival to Ganesha
Set aside personality. Focus on being a spiritual individual. Hatha yoga helps release stress and tension. Use subsuperconscious, not reason, analysis and intellect for understanding in an intuitive way. Let go of negative attachments, flow with the river of life in a natural way. Fulfill the highest dharma. Dissolve the seeds of desire.
