Ganesh Puja

Tomorrow is the birthday of Lord Ganesh, celebrated in the UK, USA, Canada and Mauritius as well as throughout India. Ganesh is the god of wisdom, prosperity and remover of all obstacles. The whole cosmos is known to be the belly of Ganesha. Parvati, the primordial energy. All realms, all oceans are inside the cosmic belly of Ganesha, held together by the cosmic energy symbolized as the snake Ganesha ties round Himself. The mouse-vehicle is our ego, controlled by Ganesh. One who controls the ego has Ganesha consciousness or God-consciousness.

What is the use of only knowing? Act and be, for therefore God sent thee into this human body. What is the use of only being? Become, for therefore was thou established as a man in the wolrd of matter. The path of works is in a way the most difficult side of Gods triune causeway; yet is it not also, in this material world at least, the easiest, widest and most delightful? For at every moment we clash against God the worker, and grow into His being by a thousand divine touches. – Sri Aurobindo-Thoughts and Aphorisms
