Preparations are going full swing at the Spiritual Park of Mauritius in view of this coming's Sunday grand celebration of Ganesha Chaturthi at the Park.
Today we had our September Ganesha Homa, a large crowd of devotees as usual …… and Lord Ganapati looking splendidly striking with all the garlands and flowers.
A few days ago the gravel path from the main gate leading to the Mandapam was covered with lava rocks…
Another major project being studied is the extension of the Ganesha Mandapam to allow more shelter for the increasing number of devotees coming during Ganesha Homa and major festivals. Here is Akshay, one of our selected architects giving a graphic demonstration of a new proposed extension to our kulapaties.
Back to our September Homa… A few devotees worshipping at the Muruga Mandapam early morning.

You can see the huge flow of devotees going down the property from the main entrance leading to the Ganesha Mandapam.
Here they are now all infront of the Ganesha Mandapam.
Worship is always intense while the ceremony is going on…

Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "The Difference in Practice of Theism and Monism" (September 3, 2014)
During a puja we're in Theism, to receive the blessings of the Deity. After a puja we can go within our self in meditation, giving up the idea of an external Deity, Monism. Monistic Theism: Advaita Ishvaravada. Advaita means the Monism; Ishvara means the Theism.
In Shum we use two words that relate to that: shumif and dimfi. First, perfect your Theism. Then become a monist. That's called Saiva Siddhanta; one leads to the other.
