Ganesha Visarjana was held on the 30th of August at the Pittsburgh Marina early in the morning. This exquisitely Ganesha was carved by Hotranatha Ajaya. There are no words to express how beautiful this Ganesha is.
Several families joined the celebration and we proceeded with Ganesha puja by Hotranatha Ajaya and assisted by Sandhya Devi Param followed by a short meditation.
All the clay Ganeshas were displayed on the palanquin were carried by the mens.
Hotranatha Ajaya and Jothi Param went in the water to immerse the Ganeshas.
The crowd sang some Ganesha songs in the background.
Off they go!. See you next year, Lord Ganesha.

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.
