We bring you more photos from Pancha Ganapati celebrations. Later we will make a Maha Slide show.
Here is an actual 5 headed murthi at the home of Toshadeva and Kamala Guhan here on Kauai.
Now we go off around the world to the home of Sivaram and Devika Eswaran in Malaysia. Their shrine is all lit up.
Sivaram does arati….
Talented in the arts of song and dance … Devika singing to the Gods.
Little Arunesh opening his presents.
Now off to the America to join the Golden Gate Satsang.

We had a joyous satsang and Pancha Ganapati celebration.
Here we perform the monthly homa at the home of Easvan and Devi Param. Easvan, on the left has two of his grandsons, Jeya and Bodhi assisting.
10-year-old Sandhyadevi Param gave her most accomplished singing and veena performance yet. She sang and played the Ganesha Geetam. Sandhyadevi’s paathi, Bhavani Param accompanies on the tambura.
We were blessed to have six guests from Bhutan. Five of them are pictured here in a row from Ganesh Subedi in white on the left. Ganesh was the first to come in 1999 and he has been helping the new arrivals due to the political problem over in Bhutan. The lady in the white coat led us in some bhajans -- Bhutan style! It was very uplifting to have them with us. You can listen to them below:

One of our member remembered and recited this poem from heart from the Loving Ganesha Book (see below)
After this we had a Panchaganapati puja and watched a video of Gurudeva’s Mahasamadhi puja, followed by prasadam and a hugging send-off of our new Bhutanese friends.
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "Patanjali's Yoga Sutras - False Knowledge" (June 15, 2014)
Bodhinatha comments on Patanjali Yoga Sutras, Verses 1.5 through 1.12. The restraint of the mental activities of correct knowledge, erroneous knowledge, fantasy, sleep and memory is achieved through practice and detachment. He focuses up the subject of erroneous knowledge and relates Gurudeva's discussion on how to resolve deep seated erroneous conception from Cognizantibility. Hatha yoga balances ida and pingala. Mindfulness and memory relate. Desire is life. Transmute our desire and change our life.
