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.
