Happy Skanda Shasti to You and all of the Mathavasis. Thank you for the wonderful Muruga festival this week.
In September, we visited Markandeya in Chicago, where he moved earlier this year for a new job. One of the highlights was visiting the Art Institute of Chicago, who had a large Indian and south east Asian collection. This first Karttikeya from Andhra Pradesh really had a presence and the second one was very nicely detailed.
There were a lot of other pieces of Ganesha, Lord Siva, and Nandi, which we can forward to Hinduism Today, if they would be useful.

There is a continuity between the dominant states of consciousness you are in at the time of death and what you experience after death. The goal is to aim for a higher world. When the momentum winds down that's when we are reborn. We function in about three chakras and from that group we can go up or down. Closing off the lower chakras is the work that needs to be done, it can only be done in a physical body. Keep up regular sadhana, japa, worship and working within oneself.
