A second series of photos from our Ganesha Chaturthi festival at the Spiritual Park. Lord Ganapati is beautifully dressed on this auspicious occasion.
Usually on such occasions all family members join hands to lovingly weave a large garland for the Lord. All garlands brought on that day were home made.
Our two hired sivachariyas did a very elaborate saiva agamic homa and puja, inspiring deep devotion in the hearts of all those present. It's the end of the homa ceremony and pure ghee is being poured into the sacred fire to now conclude this ritual.
Flowers and bouquets for Lord Pancha Mukha Ganapati
Music of the nadeswaram and bajans merged to enhance the devotional vibration inside the Mandapam
The tent in front the Mandapam steps is always filled up with intense bhakti as usual.
Another busy spot too is at the small Ganesha Shrine where all offerings of fruits and flowers are being offered by families to the Lord.
Here are devotees queuing up around this shrine preparing their trays of offerings….

There is a continuity between the dominant states of consciousness you are in at the time of death and what you experience after death. The goal is to aim for a higher world. When the momentum winds down that's when we are reborn. We function in about three chakras and from that group we can go up or down. Closing off the lower chakras is the work that needs to be done, it can only be done in a physical body. Keep up regular sadhana, japa, worship and working within oneself.
