We are happy to share a few photos of Ganesha Homa for the month of June 2011 at the Spiritual Park.
Devotees always look forward with deep love and faith for this monthly religious event…
Every space around the Mandapam accommodates devotees.

Lord Pancha Mukha Ganapati always look majestic on such events!
Always adorned with local and imported flowers and garlands lovingly offered by devotees.
The sacred flames consume hundreds of written prayers.

One devotee receiving a present on behalf of the Spiritual Park. Our kind gentlleman has been restoring the thatched roof of the Ganesha Mandapam as a seva. This was a delicate job professionally done using dry sugar cane leaves.
Near the pond…
Offerings at the small Ganesha shrine.

Newcomers discovering the waterfront.
Arati time… the final part of the ceremony. The whole crowd stands up. This is usually a very uplifting moment when a high spiritual vibration is felt by all those present.
Religion needs to be of the present. Mankind is evolving spiritually; mass consciousness is rising. When we go to the temple, in the right spirit, contributing devotion and prana, being open to the blessings of the Deity; it purifies the mind. The Hindu religion focuses on the mind; purifies it; controls it, subdues the ego, makes us more humble.
