Tech Tip 28: The Best Virtual Pooja -Shree Ganeshaye Namah!

Posted on: April 16, 2009

Ganesha, also known as Ganpati or Vinayaka, is one of the best-known and most widely worshiped deities in the Hindu Religion. The son of Shiva and Parvati, Ganesha is the Lord of success and the destroyer of obstacles. Before we start any new venture, we normally pray to Lord Ganesha first as we believe every rightful deed done by us will definitely go successful. He is also worshipped as the God of Knowledge, Wisdom and Wealth.

As cited in one of the articles in About.com by Subhamoy Das, “Ganesha’s head symbolizes the Atman or the soul, which is the ultimate supreme reality of human existence, and his human body signifies Maya or the earthly existence of human beings. The elephant head denotes wisdom and its trunk represents Om, the sound symbol of cosmic reality. In his upper right hand Ganesha holds a goad, which helps him propel mankind forward on the eternal path and remove obstacles from the way. The noose in Ganesha’s left hand is a gentle implement to capture all difficulties.

The broken tusk that Ganesha holds like a pen in his lower right hand is a symbol of sacrifice, which he broke for writing the Mahabharata. The rosary in his other hand suggests that the pursuit of knowledge should be continuous. The laddoo (sweet) he holds in his trunk indicates that one must discover the sweetness of the Atman. His fan-like ears convey that he is all ears to our petition. The snake that runs round his waist represents energy in all forms. And he is humble enough to ride the lowest of creatures, a mouse”.

Getting back to this post, which relates to how technology helps us be closer to the Lord of Success, a few weeks back I discovered this wonderful website which allows its users to say a wonderful prayer online. Let’s admit it, in this fast day and age, people find it difficult to spend a few minutes to go to the temple everyday and say a silent prayer. This online Pooja has been made so creatively that you would want to bookmark the page and visit it several times. It only takes a few minutes but it truly gives me peace of mind, and it allows me to spend some time with Him.

Tech-wise, the website is made beautifully and is definitely worth a visit. Afterall, who wouldn’t want the Almighty’s blessings every once in a while?

Hope you enjoy it…have a blessed day!
