“Love is the first attainment of invoking Ganesha. The second attainment is betterment of buddhi. Betterment of buddhi leads to the third attainment, greater understanding, and as the result of the first three, the mind becomes creative and intuitive. When the mind becomes creative and intuitive, it follows the path of dharma. This is the fourth attainment. Love and dharma together conquer karma. This is the fifth attainment. These are the five attainments of a sadhaka who is living in the material world. The sixth, seventh and eighth stages are the domain of sadhakas. These include the awakening of Kundalini, the raising of Kundalini and the merger of Shakti with Shiva.” The theme of the satsangs Swamiji gave in August 2012 at Ganga Darshan Vishwa Yoga Peeth was Ganapati aradhana. Swami took us on a journey to the land of Ganesha’s birth, Mt Kailash, and explained the significance of this well-loved deity’s birth, form and the associated symbols. Swamiji also outlined the role of Ganesha in human life and the methods to invoke his grace, as described in the vedic and tantric system.

Harikatha (lit. stories of the Lord) is the exposition of a religious theme, usually the life of a saint or a story from one of India’s scriptural texts. Its purpose is to spread devotion to the Divine. Harikatha is a composite art containing story-telling, poetry, music, drama, dance, and philosophy. Any story about God, or scriptural incidents, or about saints, who are the living exemplars for the existence of God, is an appropriate subject matter for Harikatha.
The greatness of Harikatha lies in the fact that it provides one of the easiest; if not the easiest path to attaining lasting happiness and peace. Listening to stories about Divinity and divine individuals subtly makes the mind attached to, and permeated by Divinity. As one continues to listen to the stories of the Divine, one becomes pure in thought, word, and deed. As well, it cultivates one’s power of concentration and drives away doubt from a wavering mind. Not only does a katha please its listener, as other fine arts do, but it also comforts the mind and elevates the soul of the listener. Thus, as it entertains, it enlightens.
Meera Grimes (also known as Balameera Chandra) is well known in India for her Harikatha performances. She is one of the leading artists in this field, an artist of the Music Academy, Air India Radio, and Television. At the age of twelve Meera gave her first public Harikatha performance on Saint Dhruva (Dhruvacaritra) and since then has been presenting kathas around the world, both in Tamil and in English. Meera is also a Bharata Natyam dancer and teacher.

From the Jacket:
In this book the author discusses the place of science in rituals and mantras. Using structural analysis he show that rituals in general, whether religious, political, social or otherwise have common structural patterns. These patterns are shared by poetry, music, dance and gymnastics, but not by language. Consideration of animal rituals and pathological (compulsive) rituals leads him to propose a general theory which unifies all ritual-like activities. He also introduces the concept of ritual instinct which can be make the theory simpler and more elegant. He shows how knowledge can divided into science, non-science and pseudo-science to understand the true status of such strange phenomena as miracles, supernatural powers, siddhis, samadhi, rebirth and ESP.
