Ganesha Homa September 09- Mauritius Spiritual Park

The presiding Deity in the Spiritual Park is the eight-foot-tall granite Panchamukha Ganapati. This majestic five-faced, ten-armed Ganapati looks over azure blue seas facing India--a towering reminder of the original home of the nation's Hindus and of the importance of harmony in life.

The September Ganesha Homa is as usual a great encounter for thousands, with Lord Ganesha at the Park.

Singing devotional songs to build up the spiritual vibration.

At 9.00 AM a large crowd is already at the Park.

The ceremony starts with a an arati to Lord Ganapati.

Our ladies handling flowers brought by devotees.

Whether seated or standing devotion is high everywhere.

The monthly public talk from Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami's teachings.

The teachings are spiritual food for the devotees who listen attentively.

It is tradition for many devotees to bring a lighted clay lamp with their offerings. Hundreds of these small lamps are placed near the Pancha Mukha Ganapati shrine.

Inside the shrine….

This what you see when standing at the Ganapati shrine and looking at the Mandapam.
