Our monthly July Ganesha Homa at the Spiritual Park… here the huge homa pit through which are sent thousands of letters into the inner worlds requesting help from the "devas" or angels beings under the guidance of Lord Ganapati.
As usual every single space accommodates devotees inside the Mandapam.
Outside the huge crowd is a common feature now…
Devotees seated inside the tent outside…
Worship at the Narmada lingum has become a 'must' or devotees attending Homa.
Devotees coming up the newly built steps….
Others patiently queuing up at the small Ganesha shrine with their trays of offerings….
Our Sishyas are always busy at this shrine breaking hundreds of coconuts….
Devotees everywhere ….

Hindus believe in each individual as a soul, a divine being who is inherently good. We all have a threefold nature: instinctive, intellectual, intuitive. Develop the intuitive/spiritual/soul nature with compassion, devotion, penance. Use the intellect to help subdue the instinctive mind. Guilt is not a part of Hinduism. There is no eternal hell. You have a continuity of consciousness when you transition to the inner worlds. There is no devil, but there are mischievous "asuras."
