Pancha Ganapathi rises and expands infinitely at Napali!
Oh Ruler of Heaven & Earth!
Sweet Lord with the elephant ears
Who in sacrifice
Surrendered your beautiful tusk.
Oh great God with a slow gait and a mother’s love.
Guide us in the First World today.
Hold us to the path of Dharma with your mighty noose
That your five radiant shaktis will flow through us freely
Out to the world.
We are infinitely blessed to be among a Living Master and Siva’s men,
the great Souls that surround Him.
Thank you for your presence, patience and example in our lives!
Deva, Amala, & Oma

"Temples with multiple deities can be confusing, especially for today's Hindu youth. For clarity, we need to bring forward a more precise understanding of the different Hindu denominations and how the different Gods are viewed from within each denomination. For spiritual advancement it is best to focus on one deity and get to the vibration that deity. When we hear teachings from various Hindus, it is important to understand and identify which denomination they are speaking from. This will avert confusion when that teaching gets contradicted in a different context where someone is talking about the same subject but from a different philosophical background."
