Happy Birthday to Sri Ganesh(Pillaiyar)

Sri Ganesh is the first amongst the
Hindu Deities.

God is worshipped as Ganesh in His
first form and name. Among the
five Principal Deities, the name of
Sri Ganesh comes first, then
Vishnu, Shankar (Lord Shiva), Surya
and Durga respectively.

On the 4th tithi of the bright
fortnight in the Hindu month of
Bhadrapad (August-September), this
festival of Ganesh Chaturthi is
observed. The most auspicious time or
Muhurth for the performance of
this celebration is midday, as said by
Brihaspati and quoted in Kala-
niraya. When Chaturthi tithi is mixed
with the third and the fifth
tithis,and if at midday there is
Chaturthi, the one mixed with the
3rd tithi is to be preferred. If at
midday there is no Chaturthi, but
on the next day there is Chaturthi at
midday mixed with Panchmi or
the 5th tithi, then the fifth tithi is

Method of worship…..
A clay image of Lord Ganesh,
beautifully painted, is brought and
Prana Pratishta (consecration) is
effected and worship is offered to
Lord Ganesh also called Vinayak, with
16 Upcharas or steps of worship
as follows:

Dakshanaam and of course Aarte

Twenty-one “Modakas” (a type of sweets
commonly called Ladoo) are
needed in Ganesh Pooja. Five are
offered to Lord Ganesh in the Pooja,
five are offered to Brahmins (people
of the priestly class) and the
remaining eleven are given to the
Yajman (the active participant in
the Pooja or Yajna) to be eaten by
himself or his family.

At sunset, without looking at the
moon, perform Chandrama pooja
(pooja to the moon God) and offer
Aarghya. Daan or charitable gifts
must be given to the main Pandit as
well as any other Pandits or
Sadhus (holy men)that are present
there. Dakshina should also be
offered to the Ganesh Murti. Katha
(discourses) should be read and
Visarjan (final prayer) of Sri Ganesh
Pooja is to be performed.

At the end of the celebration, in a
great procession, the image of
Lord Ganesh is immersed in a well or a
tank, a river or in the sea.
It is important to know that this
immersion can only be done when the
Sun moves from Simha Rasi or the House
of Leo into Kanya Rasi or the
House of Virgo. This illustrates the
importance of Jyotish or Hindu

Thereafter, feed the Brahmins, give
them Dakshina (monetary gifts)
then partake of the Modakas or Prasad.

The authoritative texts to read when
Ganesh Chaturthi Pooja is
performed are :

Mudgal Purana
Ganesh Purana and
Ganesh Bhagwat.
Sri Ganesh worship lasts for one day
and a half, two days, five days,
seven days or ten days which is until
the end of Anant Chaturdasi
(14th tithi of the bright forthnight
of Bhadrapad).




Heads up everyone. Please, keep this

You walk! across the parking lot,
unlock your car and get inside.
You start the engine and shift into
Reverse. When you look into
the rearview mirror to back out of
your parking space, you notice
a piece of paper stuck to the middle
of the rear window. So, you
shift into Park, unlock your doors,
and jump out of your
car to remove that paper (or whatever
it is) that is obstructing
your view.

When you reach the back of your car,
that is when the
car hacker’s) appear out of nowhere,
jump into your car and
take off. They practically mow you
down as they speed off
in your car.

And guess what, ladies? I bet your
purse is still in the car.
So now the carjacker has your car,
your home address, your
money, and your keys. Your home and
your whole identity is
now compromised!


If you see a piece of paper stuck to
your back window, just drive

Remove the paper later. And be
thankful that you read this e-mail.

I hope you will forward this to
friends and family, especially to

A purse contains all kinds of personal
information and
documents, and you certainly do NOT
want this to fall into the wrong

Love Does Not Need A Reason

Lady : Why do you like me..? Why do you love me?
Man : I can’t tell the reason.. but I really like you..
Lady : You can’t even tell me the reason… how can you say you like me? How can you say you love me?
Man : I really don’t know the reason, but I can prove that I love you.
Lady : Proof? No! I want you to tell me the reason. My friend’s boyfriend can tell her why he loves her but not you!
Man : Ok..ok!!! Erm… because you are beautiful,because your voice is sweet,
because you are caring,
because you are loving,
because you are thoughtful,
because of your smile,
because of your every movements.
The lady felt very satisfied with the man’s answer. Unfortunately, a few days later, the Lady met with an accident and became comma. The Guy then placed a letter by her side, and here is the content:
Because of your sweet voice that I love you…
Now can you talk? No! Therefore I cannot love you.
Because of your care and concern that I like you..
Now that you cannot show them, therefore I cannot love you.
Because of your smile,
because of your every movements that I love you..
Now can you smile? Now can you move?
No, therefore I cannot love you…
If love needs a reason, like now, there is no reason for me to love you anymore.
Do love need a reason? NO!
Therefore, I still love you…
And love doesn’t need a reason
” Sometimes the best and the most beautiful things in the world
cannot be seen, cannot be touched, but can be felt in the heart “”LOVE DOES NOT NEED A REASON”

Be Brave and
take your own decisions

Consult your parents
for advice but realise
that you are grown up
enough to lead your life.

Respect your
partner’s views at all times!
Remember she has given up a
lot more to make a life with you!!

A small boy – the fifth amongst seven
siblings of a poor father, was selling
newspapers in a small village to earn
his living. He was not exceptionally
smart at school but was fascinated by
religion and rockets. The first rocket
he built crashed. A missile that he
built crashed multiple times and he
was made a butt of ridicule. He is the
person to have scripted the Space
Odyssey of India single-handedly-

A little girl – the 20th of 22
children, was born prematurely and her
survival was doubtful. When she was 4
years old, she contracted double
pneumonia and scarlet fever, which
left her with a paralysed left leg. At
age 9, she removed the metal leg brace
she had been dependent on and began to
walk without it. By 13 she had
developed a rhythmic walk, which
said was a miracle. That same year she
decided to become a runner. She
entered a race and came in last. For
the next few years every race she
entered, she came in last. Everyone
told her to quit, but she kept on
running. One day she actually won a
race. And then another. From then on
she won every race she entered.
Eventually this little girl – Wilma
Rudolph, went on to win three Olympic
gold medals.

The Moral of the above Stories:
Character cannot be developed in ease
and quiet, Only through experiences of
trial and suffering can the soul be
strengthened, vision cleared, ambition
inspired and success achieved. You
gain strength, experience and
confidence by every experience where
you really stop to look fear in the
face. You must do the thing you cannot

success!” “Pick battles big enough to
matter, small enough to win.”
