A truly wonderful chant from Deva Premal -Om Gang Ganapataye Namaha
Happy Ganesh Chaturthi to all my friends 🙂 Sai Ram
Today I am happy to post some long lost photos of Sathya Sai, most of which are rare. Also there is an old post called: American Interview, 1994 & Ganesha’s Birthday – Sathya Sai Memories – an Amazing story about an equally amazing group interview.
No worship can succeed unless the heart is pure and the senses are mastered. Ganesha is the God who helps overcome obstacles; but, He will create obstacles when good endeavor is obstructed by bad influences; He will clear the path for the sincere sadhaka. He is Prasannavadanam (of bright countenance), of beneficial looks, when you pray to Him for good ends; but, He will not be that when you seek His help for nefarious stratagems! He is Pranava-Swarupa, the Om personified; so He is auspiciousness itself.
Vinayaka is a leader for all deities. Faith in Vinayaka should be developed as the exemplar for all deities and He should be worshiped as the embodiment of Divinity.
from a Sathya Sai Baba Discourse.
Om Eka Dantaya Vidmahe
Vakra Thundaya Dhemahi
Thannoh Dhantih Prachodhayath
Om Shanti … Shanti … Shanti
Realizing that Elephant-faced One,
with one tusk is God;
Meditate on the One Who has a curved trunk;
May He enlighten our intellect.
