Ganeshas for Ganesha Chaturthi

People raise funds for the Iraivan Temple construction in many ways.

Kartikeya Katir of San Jose, California and Eesan Sankara of Brentwood are making Ganeshas out of clay for Ganesha Chuturthi (coming up on September 11). Here’s Karti pouring clay into the molds.

They are selling them for five, ten or fifteen dollars (depending on the size) and then donating the money to Iraivan Temple.

The Ganesh can be painted, worshipped and then immersed at a local Ganapati Visarjana ceremony. It’s a perfect religious activity for kids.

Would you like to receive a Ganesha this year for yourself or for others? Call Mrs. Sundari Katir at 408-988-7503 or e-mail sundarikatir at

The clay Ganesha can be shipped to you if you live in the US. Deadline for orders is August 25th. Orders for 100 small Ganeshas for two temples in California have already been received! Please act now if you wish to receive one.
