Master course student Toshadevi, her husband Fremont, daughter Lily and brother Vanore (behind the camera) celebrate Pancha Ganapati in their home in St. Lucia.
This is Vanore. I’m sending this email on behalf of my parents to share some photos of our Pancha Ganapati celebration with the monastery. As you may notice, we tried to dress in the colors of the day. Here we are dressed in red and orange.
We thoroughly enjoyed our fourth Pancha Ganapati celebration thus far. It is always so fulfilling for the family to worship Lord Ganesh together at this time of year, though we missed having our sister Velika with us. (We will keep up our shrine until she comes home in early January.) My sister, Lily, and I are especially grateful to Gurudeva for creating this meaningful festival for Hindus. Jai Gurudeva! Jai Ganesa!
One Response to “Pancha Ganapati in St. Lucia, West Indies”
The mind doesn't move; awareness moves. We have control. Sitting still, restraining the mind, nirodha of the vrittis, is what's changing subconscious from the inside out. Being spurred on by the guru, strive for improvement, seeing progress. Look inside, find happiness and then share it. When not in meditation work to refine every attribute of your nature. Be in the world and be fearless. Face what you need to do and do it well.
