A Happy Ganesh Chaturthi to all of you. May the blessings of Lord Ganesha guide you through your lives and bring peace and joy into it.
One story about Lord Ganesha impresses me a lot. He went around his parents Siva and Parvathi and considered it to be equivalent to going around the world. In short prostrating before your parents is like having conquered the world. How very true! Our parents have given life to us and we’d be non-exisistent without them. They should therefore mean the world to us. Let us spend a moment recalling all that they have done for us. They may or may not have left us worldly possessions depending on their status in life. But they have certainly given us heartfelt blessings. It is their blessing that carries us through life. Let us then devote this day to them!
