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.

Religion needs to be of the present. Mankind is evolving spiritually; mass consciousness is rising. When we go to the temple, in the right spirit, contributing devotion and prana, being open to the blessings of the Deity; it purifies the mind. The Hindu religion focuses on the mind; purifies it; controls it, subdues the ego, makes us more humble.
