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!

"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."
