ONLINE Make a Clay Ganesha
Saturday, August 15 @ 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
With Radha Chaitanya
Release your obstacles! Prepare for Ganesha Chaturti.
Join the Center in this traditional workshop. Make your own personal form of beloved Ganesha from clay.
It is recommended to use a non-toxic/water soluble (environmentally friendly) clay so you can submerge your Ganesha in any natural body of water.
Ganesha is the remover of obstacles, as we make our clay Ganesha we set an intention to let go of anything that may be obscuring our greatest potential. We then do a small ritual to invoke the energy of Ganesha. (if you have the traditional “three powders” sandalwood, kum kum, and vibhuti (Siva ash) you can have them ready, if not it’s ok, intention is what really counts!
Keep him on your altar and perform daily puja or arati for a week. Puja will be held at 6:00am on Friday, August 21. Following the Puja, it is customary to process to the ocean and release the clay Ganesha back to the earth, to dissolve—and along with them release and dissolve our obstacles.
