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.
At the other side of the left hand railing going up the Mandapam…
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.
Kulapati Kulagan, Nanda Thungavelloo and Adi Sankaraleading the bajans…
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.

Ananda and Logadassen helping at the HA Booth.
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.
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "Patanjali's Yoga Sutras - False Knowledge" (June 15, 2014)
Bodhinatha comments on Patanjali Yoga Sutras, Verses 1.5 through 1.12. The restraint of the mental activities of correct knowledge, erroneous knowledge, fantasy, sleep and memory is achieved through practice and detachment. He focuses up the subject of erroneous knowledge and relates Gurudeva's discussion on how to resolve deep seated erroneous conception from Cognizantibility. Hatha yoga balances ida and pingala. Mindfulness and memory relate. Desire is life. Transmute our desire and change our life.
