Shri Ganesh Chaturthi online celebrations from the Pranav Ganesh Mandir were streamed live on Chinmaya Channel (YouTube) and Facebook Live on August 22, delighting viewers all over the world.
The welcome was in the form of a short documentary about the majestic Mandir. After the Sankalpa, an elaborate abhisheka was offered, bathing the Lord with various dravyas amidst sonorous chants of Ganapati Atharvashirsha. Devotees could chant along from home, using this PDF booklet which was shared with all:
Melodious bhajans were offered as the Lord was adorned. Ashtottara Archana followed with floral offerings. Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda’s beautiful composition expressing gratitude to Lord Ganapati – ‘Varsha Kripa ki …’ was a highlight for all, as was Pujya Swami Swaroopananda’s inspiring talk explaining the power of Ganesha, the power of leadership and determination to reach the goal, through the symbolism of the form of Vinayaka.
The puja concluded with naivedya and maha arati to the resplendent Lord. The Chinmaya Vibhooti team thanks all the Yajamans and sponsors from around the world who made loving offerings on the glorious occasion.
