We gather as a kaula (tantric community), create and empower the central yantra for Ganesha. We then build a fire kunda (sacred pit) over the yantra and perform a powerful ritual for Ganesha, The Planets, The Constellations, The Yoginis and The seats of power that make up the universe.
Ganesha’s body was formed from the mixture of sandalwood and chix pea paste His Mother removed from Her own body during Her bath. His body literally comes from Her and He embodies Her divine Shakti and is the ruler of the planets. When carving a granite Ganesha the sculpture uses a neutral stone, neither male nor female (determined by sound stone makes according to it’s ferrous oxide content). As Ganesha is beyond the concept of gender and is the primordial force located in our root chakra.
This ritual will also serve as the PRANAPRATISTHA or enlivening ritual for a very special set of planetary lingams made of the gemstones for each planet. In lieu of the suggested donation you have an opportunity to sponsor and take home gemstone prasadam in the form of Ganeshas, Lingams and Sri Chakras made of various gem stones and energized at this ritual. Please find this list of sponsorships on the GoFundMe page for the Planetary Lingams. Don’t miss this rare opportunity! WWW.GOFUNDME.COM/GEMLINGAMS
