श्री गणेशाय नमः!

Shri Ganesha is among the most popular deities in the Hindu Pantheon. He is worshipped in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Bali, Bangladesh, Fiji, Mauritius, and many other countries around the world. 

His images are found in Tibetan Buddhism, Shingon Buddhism, Japanese Kanji and Jainism as well. 

Known as the remover of obstacles, devotees take his name and pray to him before commencing any major task.

And so, today being the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi, I take his name and commence work on Avyakta Yoga – something that I have been wanting to do since long, and have been working on since long.

Today is a day of celebration. COVID has taken away the kind of community-based celebrations that we are used to, but it cannot take away our spirit. 

And so, celebrate well, and safely, and lets pray that the remover of obstacles helps us tide over this one too!
