The ladies of Golden Gate Mission has made another baby quilt for the baby of Jothi and Vasuki Sendan who was born recently. This quilt has a Ganesha centerpiece in the middle with two Aums and animals. It looks like Ganesha is looking out for His forest friends. Thank you everyone for your artistic embroidery work. This quilt is beautiful.
The letter "Ya" in the Panchakshara Mantra, Namasivaya, stands for the soul. Bodhinatha uses the Panchakshara Mantra to show how the soul is initially drawn by Siva's veiling grace, which leads the soul to maturity through experience in the world. Then comes Siva's revealing grace. When we've had enough of the world, Siva's grace pulls us toward God. The mantra also has the simple, two-syllable form. Si- Reflecting on God the Transcendent Absolute, Va-God as the All Pervading Consciousness
