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: "Not Getting Upset, Viewing Reaction from Higher Faculties" (September 14, 2014)
A measure of how serious we are in making spiritual progress is that we've learned the lesson from experience. Develop the ability to watch the mind think, understand the patterns of emotional action and reaction. Have the sense that you are a divine being to root out imperfections. Becoming upset is a temporary suspension of our higher faculties; transmute the energy into the third eye.

"Eight Features of the Natha Sampradaya" (September 17, 2014)
We have to discover that part of us that is the Self. One of the important benefits of temple worship is it softens the ego. Recognize and love a Being greater than us, building humility. Go to Lord Murugan; His worship strengthens the kundalini. There's a power in learning through listening, shruti, that which is heard. Tradition, sadhana and tapas, informs, inspires, awakens potential.
