Happy Birth Day to Ganesha!
While I do not forget that in America, it is the tragic anniversary of the terrorist attacks, and we will probably give way too much attention to the two-bit fools in Florida that want to burn the Qu’ran, I would rather focus my energy and attention today on something much more positive.
Today millions of people around the world celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi, the day that celebrates the birth of the God Ganesh!
Our dear Ganesha – You are the remover obstacles, bringer of happiness and good fortune. Won’t you please help us remove those obstacles that have closed our hearts and prevented us from understanding and respecting other faiths and cultures?
Pour out upon us your vast benevolence, wisdom and blessings, so that we may overcome our preoccupation with our fears, and defeat the ignorance and prejudices that turn us against one another!
May pure joy melt away our differences!
Jai Jai Shri Ganraj!
Ganapati Bappa Morya!
