GaneshChaturthi2016.jpg

Join me on this most auspicious day to celebrate the birth of Ganesh called Ganesh Chaturthi. And to welcome the beginning of Ganesh Navaratri. I am inviting all my fellow Ganesh worshippers (who have journeyed with me through the Ganesh sadhana) to a day full of festivities. Whether you live near or far, this is not a day to miss! 

The day will include, with everyone's participation........
Chanting the Ganesh Sloka, Tarpana or water ritual, Homa or fire ritual, Offering of 108 Coconuts, A very special Indian Classical Dance offering to the lord himself by Halo Seronko.

Date: Sunday, September 4, 2016
Where: Private Temple Home, Berkeley, California
Time: 11am - 6pm
RSVP: By August 28 with payment
Dakshina: $108* 

*no one turned away for lack of funds. payment arrangements can be made. seva is welcomed and needed. this is no small task as there is much joyful preparation including building a pit for the fire ceremony. a good percent of the donation goes to supplies for the days festivities. specific details will be sent upon RSVP.*

Om Glam Gam Ganapataye Namaha! 
In devotion, Love Janice

"Let my idle chatter be the muttering prayer, my every manual movement the execution of the ritual gesture, my walking a ceremonial circumambulation, my eating and other acts the rite of sacrifice, my lying down prostration in worship, my every pleasure enjoyed with dedication of myself, let whatever activity is mine be some form of worship to you." ~The Saundaryalahiri - Flood of Beauty
