Day One of Pancha Ganapati in Malaysia held at the home of Thanesh Kumar and family in Klang.
Pancha Ganapati Celebration was held in Klang. Our sishya Brother Kailasam performed the Ganesha puja.
Abhishegam for the deity
Many devotees attended the celebration. Lord Ganesha appeared in golden yellow on December 21, so did his devotees, who sang beautiful bhajans.
Each day a traditional offering tray of sweets, fruits and incense is offered to Pancha Ganapati, often prepared and presented by the children. Each day gifts are given to the children, who place them unopened before Pancha Ganapati for his blessings, to be opened only on the fifth day.
Little kailasam, Sharvin also enjoys the bahajans and plays the drum.
After puja is performed the family sits together for the purpose of easing any strained relationships that have arisen during the year.
They make amends one with another for misdeeds performed, insults given, mental pain and injuries caused and suffered.
As family harmony is important to all Hindus, this sadhana must be taken very seriously.
Jai Ganapati, we look forward for the 2nd day of Pancha Ganapati.
Picture from Malaysia. Mohana Vilashiny’s home shrine on certainly fulfill the colors of the day!
Pancha Ganapati Day Three in Malaysia:
Devotees gather at Mrs. Saratha Amma’s home in Klang for Day Three of Pancha Ganapati. Simple Ganesha Puja for the deity.
It’s a big day for children…Yehanthini sang a Ganesha song.
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.
