GANESHA'S 8 GREAT AVATARAS WORKSHOP
The SiddhiVinayaka Puja is an esoteric puja of great power. Siddhi Vinayaka is the incarnation of Ganesha who protects us in the Dark Age (Kili Yuga) for the next approx. 427,000 years. The puja worships Ganesha through the 4 directions, jewels, weapons and other things, including panchamrita (the 5 nectars from the cow, representing various kinds of abundance.)
Saturday and Sunday
For the advanced sages and mystics, Ganesha takes on epic proportions. He is the entire universe contained in a single form. He is Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva unified into one figure. In some of the Puranic scriptures, he is an aspect of Krishna as Parvati's older brother. When Brahma can't create the universe, Ganesha comes to his aid. When Vishnu is asked to destroy demons, it is Ganesha who shows him how to accomplish the task. In us, he sits at the base of the spine where every energy channel in the subtle body is connected to his location there.
Stories will be told of Ganesha's 8 Great Incarnations. In those incarnations, he came to kill a demon or demons that were ravishing both the Celestials and the humans. The stories of his parentage and his abilities in each incarnation differ from one incarnation to another. Each of the major demons are personifications of specific human sins: Anger, Lust, Greed, Arrogance, etc. In the State of Maharashtra, India, there are 8 different temples to Ganesha, one for each of these different incarnations. Our India Pilgrimages in 2007 and 2009 visited them, and all present can attest that the energy of each temple was quite distinctly different from the other temples. The India Pilgrimage in May 2016 will visit them again, along with many Goddess temples.
Because Ganesha's chakra is near the kundalini, this workshop invokes lots of shakti!
Here is a sampling of what kinds of mantras attendees will learn:
