2013 Ganesha Chaturthi

This video covers the events of Kauai Aadheenam's August, 2013 Ganesha Chaturthi Abhishekam and visarjana.

Gaṇeśa Chaturthī is a joyous celebration of Gaṇeśa’s birthday. While elaborate temple pūjās are held during this festival, worship is also given in the home shrine to a clay image of Gaṇeśa that we make or obtain. At the end of the day we join together in a parade, called visarjana, to a river, temple tank, lake or seashore, where we immerse the image, symbolizing Gaṇeśa’s release into universal consciousness.

Austerity is the fire that straightens the twisted life and mind of an individual, bringing him into pure being, giving a new start in life, awakening higher consciousness and a cosmic relationship with God and the Gods, friends, relatives and casual acquaintances.
