What You Seek, Is Yourself

Recently I gave a small satsang talk in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, at the Sivananda Ashram. It was organized by my dear local uncle, Mr. Arun Oza, who had invited some entrepreneurs, lawyer colleages and professors to come and listen. Thereafter two magazines had published it in Gujarati, a women's magazine called "Aradhana" and "Himsa Virdodh" magazine. Below is the summary of it, in English:

Human beings have one thing in common; we are all searching for happiness. We search for happiness all around us: in our jobs, in belongings, in other people, etc. What we usually find is that they give us happiness for some time

A New Beginning... Invoking Lord Ganesha

In India, whenever there is there is an inauguration of something new, whether it is a new house, a new car, or a new business, before doing anything else, they invoke Lord Ganesha.This is done to invoke the blessings, and pray that all obstacles and difficulties may be removed in this new venture. Ganesha has an enormous shakti power which undoubtedly reaches all people and situations. It gives a sense of security, like a green signal, indicating that we can go ahead, inaugurate, and enjoy the new chapter that we are starting.

How is Lord Ganesha invoked?
