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.

On this path, you don't have to be a great rishi or a highly trained yogi. You don't have to be a great philosopher. You don't have to know Sanskrit. Just love God, which is the Life of the life within everyone.
