Spiritual Park- March 2010 Ganesha Homa

Jai Pancha Mukha Ganapati! Despite the heavy rain that first Sunday of March a large crowd was present at the Spiritual Park to attend the Ganesha Homa ceremony. Flowers and garlands lovingly offered by devotees adorn the huge granite murthi.

Everyone would squeeze inside the Mandapam, and as usual the ladies are always there early…

The Ganesha Homa has now become a very popular ceremony for the Hindus of the island.

Outside, every centimeter of ground space is occupied

This is what you see when you go up the steps of the Mandapam. Lord Ganapati is beautifully garlanded.

The ceremony begins. The sacred fire in the large Homa pit attracts the devas of the inner worlds.

Kulapatis officiating the ceremony.

Kulapati also invited members of the public to be present at the Park on Friday 12th to meet Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami and have an opportunity to touch the Guru's Feet.
