Spiritual Park January 2009 Ganesha Homa

The January 2009 Ganesha homa at our Spiritual Park in the island nation of Mauritius was attended by some 2000 devotees who came with loving offerings to be placed at Lord Ganesha's feet.

Other devotees are seated outside under the tarpaulin tent.

Sishya Nanda Thungavelloo lead the bhajans.

As usual thousands of written prayers addressed to the devas (inner beings), are sent into the homa with the blessings of Lord Pancha Mukha Ganapati.

Kulapati Siven Koothan gave a talk sent by Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami.

Devotees listened carefully.

Here, the ceremony is about to end. The Ganesha homa usually concludes with a final arati to Lord Pancha Mukha Ganapati.

In the meantime devotes continue to bring offerings at the small Pancha Ganapati nearby.

Sishya Prakash and his wife and little daughter, originally from Mauritius, are now settled in UK. They came to receive Lord Ganesha's blessings today.

Archives are now available through 2001. Light colored days have no posts. 1998-2001 coming later.
