We are pleased to share with you our last series of photos for the Ganesha Homa dedicated to all students taking part in their school and university exams.
An elaborate homa with several items sent into the fire.
The traditional pouring of ghee into the homa by the Sivacharya.
Thousands of prayers were burnt on that day. There were so many written prayers that the large homa pit was over filled up.
Kulapati SK Moorghen, jubilated by the devotional singing inside the Mandapam, was instrumental in the coordination of this ceremony, especially taking care of having the exercise books designed and printed.
Kulapati Siven Koothan gave talk on Lord Ganesha.
A little rush at the start, during the distribution of the Ganapati copybooks, but finally all the youth with happy faces left the Mandapam.
No one wants to miss this exercise book.
So many youth waiting patiently on the Ganesha Bridge to receive their blessed copy book.

Our staff at the Himalayan Academy booth outside. The crowd is almost dispersed by that time. A busy Sunday, leaving everyone blessed and uplifted.
Our next Mauritius event coming is Guru Jayanthi on October 15. Members and students are enthusiastic to organize this evening event.
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.
