Description
PREFACE

Heart can throb in love towards something (or someone) that has properties: form and colour, sound, smell, taste and/or touch. In the path of devotion, the devotee is invoking the Supreme Reality through his love for the Lord. The Supreme is the mere Presence in every being, in Whose Gracious Light we recognise the "qualities"; and therefore the Inner Illuminator must be something other than the illumined: something beyond the "qualities" -Pure Consciousness without any of the perceived "qualities". This Eternal Subject with reference to Whom everything else can only be an "object" of Consciousness, this Self, is the Ultimate Goal to be realised.

But, in the early stages, a devotee's mind is chained to and engaged in the pleasure pursuit of our fascinating world of names and forms; the very initial step in the spiritual path is, therefore, to wean away his mind from all its continuous engagements and total preoccupations with the "objects".

The technique employed is called Upasana. Since our mind cannot directly conceive the Truth that is beyond all "qualities", the teachers had to supply us with a symbolic altar for our mental attention to rest continuously, an altar which should suggest richly the Supreme in all its Formless Glory!

For providing such altar of devotion, Vyasa had supplied us with a host of deities in his Puranas.

Ganesh, the son of Lord Shiva, is one of the most prominent altars, faithfully invoked and dedicatedly worshipped by a large group of Hindu devotees. How this elephant-faced Lord of all obstacles represent Him, Who, in His Ultimate Essence is formless, and how Ganesh has again and again appeared to His devotees in their inner intimate experience, the fascinating stories that unfold the divine perfections and wisdom of this Modaka-priya, are devotedly described in our literature - often they peep out and bloom here and there, scattered all over the sacred literature. Jamshedpur has brought much of them together in this volume and I congratulate them for their spirit of research and industrious enthusiasm. This volume is a boon.

Jai Jai Vignesa!

Testimonials

GREAT SITE. SANSKRIT AND HINDI LINGUISTICS IS MY PASSION. AND I THANK YOU FOR THIS SITE.
Madhu, USA
I love your site and although today is my first order, I have been seeing your site for the past several years. Thank you for providing such great art and books to people around the World who can't make it to India as often as we would like.
Rupesh
Heramba Ganapati arrived safely today and was shipped promptly. Another fantastic find from Exotic India with perfect customer service. Thank you. Jai Ganesha Deva
Marc, UK
I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
BWM, NZ
Best web site to shop on line.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.
