    Yay! Ganesh Chaturthi! As a Srivaishnava, this is one time the elephant-faced god is celebrated all across our homes! Until several years ago, I used to make 51 modakas for the homa at Sri Lakshmi Temple on the mornings of Ganesh Chaturthi... owing to the tediousness of the process, cut it short to just home celebrations these past several years... Let us celebrate the great Ganesh Chaturthi and pray to the great god for success in all our endeavors, including spiritual!

    Happy Ganesh Chaturthi everyone! (Although this is much in advance ).

    Namaste,

    I purchased an idol of Sri Ganesha today.I used to buy POP images before but they are painted with toxic metallic colors and do not dissolve in water.This year I got an Eco-friendly clay image.

    Ganesha fans should not miss this! 108 different postures and forms of Ganesha, some as different as playing Guitar, Chess and Computer:

    My favourite is Ganesha with the cute little rat on his belly.

    Namaste Ji,

    The Sri Ganesha Murthi you made looks very good,especially the ear rings.

    Re: Sri Ganesha Festival 2014

    Thank you! The earrings are actual metal, the murti is pure clay, the paint is water soluable "childs safe" paint that will dissolve in the water. I do this every year, and I give each a name. His name for this year is Royal Ganesha. I wish everyone good tidings from Ganesha as Fall and Winter comes. The official date for immersion would be the 9th, but due to high demands at the professional level I will do this a bit early this year as I will be very busy with work. Many changes are also coming, so I pray Ganesha take me through and beyond.

    Namaste,

    I believe you are talking about the 108 different forms of Ganeshji from the Dinamalar link.

    I liked the 5-headed Ganesha (#13), Golden Ganesha (#32), Mridanga Ganesha (#44), Baby Ganesha (#61) and Mathematician Ganesha (#68).
