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.

"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
