Decorate Your Houses With Flowers, Ganpati Is Coming
Ganesh Chaturthi’ 2022 (Symbolic meaning)
Ganesh Chaturthi is on the 31st August and this festival will continue till Anant Chaturdashi.
How much do prayers heal us when our own vibes are low? We all need to have our own sacred space and our own methods to recharge us when we go low and for me there is nothing better than prayers. Simple morning evening prayer with fragrant incense and lamp, done with love and faith can uplift anybody. It stabilizes us and calms our mind and gives us courage to walk further in life with faith and trust.
Only two types of people will not go in prayers:
First, who are experiencing full-blown life force expansion experience. At that time, you feel so much merged with Supreme light that there is no separation. All rituals, methods and tools drops. You feel so one that who will pray to whom. There is no separation even to do prayer. They become light with light.
This stage doesn’t last forever. So, when these people come back in the human side then they also need prayers to give them power and strength to walk their human side.
Second, are those who are completely into the outside world and noise. They are also very much connected like everybody to their source energy but may be still the time has not come so they try to handle their issues in other ways rather than prayers. This attitude is also ok as nothing is permanent and when their time will come then they will do this also so, all is good and acceptable.
God Loves and Supports all Equally
Ganpati is all auspicious, all success and his name ensures that the work will be completed in the best possible manner with highest gains.
Ganpati is wisdom (Viveka) and knowledge(Vidhya) accompanied by his wives Ridhi (prosperity) – Sidhi (attainment) and sons Shubh (auspicious) and labh (gains). So knowledge and wisdom are always accompanied with prosperity, attainment, gains and it is all auspicious. How beautiful combination is this. So rather than chasing, running, and grabbing things outside, we need to come inside ourselves and increase our light so much that our light attracts our gifts from the Universe on its own.
The path is from inside to outside. This message is repeatedly given everywhere in Hinduism. The highest truth is there are no professional issues, relationship issues or Self issues. There is only one issue that produces all these issues and that is Self-disconnection. As much you are connected to Self – Atma that much you will be completely free from all the issues instantly and live joyful life.
Only you are required to work on your energy and your energy will manage your time, productivity, planning, strategies, implementation, Self-worth, Self-confidence, relationships, career graphs etc. If you will first try to manage outside then it can be short-lived and exhausting.
Only ask yourself what I need to do right now that I feel uplifted and loved now and then keep on choosing what makes you sparkle. Your path will be lit with thousands of lamps.
It is said that Ganpati loves Hibiscus flower, coconut, betel flower, durva and lots of modaks and laddus. Whatever you can offer it is all acceptable when it is offered with full love and faith. All Ganpati prayers can be done on this day. Prayers are trust and where we trust we surrender. We know nothing can go wrong. He will handle all. He will take care of all, and all will be good. This is the only requirement.
How beautiful and colourful idols we get for this festival. This celebration is full of joy and high energy. It must be high energy as the coming of Ganpati is coming of Wisdom, knowledge, Prosperity, Attainments, Gains and Auspiciousness. This is good luck.
- Who can remain in low energy after receiving this abundance, so HE is called VIGHNAHARTA (His presence itself is absence of all the problems)
- His coming is happiness and ensures success. This is the reason HE is called SUKHKARTA.
So the focus needs to be on Ganpati, which is knowledge (Vidhya) and all others are gifts with it.
So always give your tana ( body), mana ( mind) and dhana (wealth) for ( Vidhya) knowledge, and knowledge will give all other gifts to you. Enrich yourself with mental clarity, joy and peace and allow your life force to expand fully in this clarity and this clarity will attract all the abundance.
So I wish all of us very Happy Ganesh Chaturthi 2022 in advance.
