Divine Dialogues September 2019
Om Ganapataye Namaha! Sri Svamiji introduces Ganesh Chaturti, one of the most important festivals for a spiritual practitioner. During the 10 day festival people in India (and around the world) celebrate the "elephant God", Ganesha. There are three aspects of Ganesha. He is known as One who removes of obstacles, gives prosperity and grants Wisdom and Knowledge. Svamiji highlighted two fascinating symbols of Ganesha’s form: one of the largest animals on Earth selected a small mouse as His vehicle; and despite the great difference in size, they co-exist harmoniously. This special relationship also demonstrates the importance of looking beyond outer appearances and recognizing the true Divine quality within. Om Sri Ganeshaya Namaha!
