2013 Ganesha Chaturthi

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

Ga?e?a Chaturth? is a joyous celebration of Ga?e?as birthday. While elaborate temple p?j?s are held during this festival, worship is also given in the home shrine to a clay image of Ga?e?a 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 Ga?e?as release into universal consciousness.

The force of the intellectual area of the mind is controlled and transmuted through the power of a regulated breath. A beginning pranayama is a method of breathing nine counts as we inhale, holding one; nine counts as we exhale, holding one count.
