Ganesh, a God who is considered the Prime and who is almost loved by every hindu kid. It was His day yesterday and he enlightened me a bit on his daily basis..

There was a Thought on my head, I don't know what brought it up. Was that the speech By Shri. Arun Madhavan, a spiritual teacher, singer and author ? or was it the mood of the Ganesh Chaturthi. Whatever was the reason, The finding was enough to astonish me.

In Hinduism, It is considered whatever comes from the 5 elements (earth, fire, water, sky, air) to us is being taken back by them at some point of time. That is what our ancestors have been believing for the past God knows how many decades. Thats the reason why we make our Ganesha idols out of mud, clay which is from the earth and offer it flower and perform puja and send it back to the earth from where it came from.(courtesy : Arunji)

This thought suddenly took me to the past where i remembered the words of H. W. Longfellow, The Psalm of life, " Dust thou art, to dust returnest, Was not spoken of the soul." Means the Genesis had actually mentioned the same, what goes around comes around. The karma of the dust, the Earth!

On the other hand, Ganesha is portrayed as being the "nirvikalp, Nirakar...."- meaning the formless and the one that is beyond atributes and wishes of the earthly life. Which is nothing but what the Islam preaches as the "One Divinity - ALLAH" (courtesy : Arunji)
