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.

That is the goal of life, to know Siva, to love Siva and to find union in Him, to dance with Siva, live with Siva and merge with Siva.
