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 yahoo.com
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.
What is happening in the world is supposed to be happening, not because God wants it to happen but because man created it. There is no advantage, as a normal citizen, to get disturbed by violence in the world. Impact your own sphere of influence by being a peaceful person, radiating compassion and concern for others. Take responsibility, realizing karma is the source, our creation, attracting the people we encounter, the experiences we go through.
