Here at Kauai Aadheenam the Deities never sleep. This is one of the few places where all eight daily pujas are conducted as prescribed in the Agamas. They happen every three hours at midnight 3am 6am 9am noon 3pm 6pm and 9pm. Each day at 3am Kadavul Temple's Lord Ganesha receives an abhishekam and is dressed for the new day. His decorative colors are calculated by the panchangam and this month He was mostly blues yellows whites and reds. Here he is at about 4:40am each of the past 25 days just following the puja's final arati.
If you worship the elephant-faced Vinayaka your life will expand bountifully. If you worship the white-tusked Vinayaka your desires and doubts will flee. Therefore worship Him with love-offerings of jack hoppers plantain and mango fruits and thus mitigate the burden of deeds. Saint Auvaiyar. 127
Dharma is religious patterns which when followed promote the wellbeing of the individual, the family and society. Patterns so that the soul matures and gets closer to God, closer to realizing the Divinity within. Dharma is: "The orderly fulfillment of an inherent nature or destiny," working on instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Destiny is fixed: Realization. Personal dharma, "your own perfect pattern in life", is different for the sannyasin and the householder.
