I have a sweet Memory of this Lord Ganesha. In Tamil Nadu we call Ganesha mostly as Vinayakar and also Pillayar. Once a very good guru of my parents Mani Iyer asked me and my father to apply oil to Ganesha statue under the Arasa Maram (Granite Ganesha kept under Tree ) and do abishekam – holy bath, apply kumkum for 12 Sundays.
It was the year 2000. I felt shy to do such things in Colony temple. So my father wakes me at 4 Am. we both take some water in a vessel, oil, kumkum viboothi and worship this Ganesha.
After 9 years in 2009, during Ganesha temple kumbabishekam in our colony, this Ganesha was kept as Kanni moolai Ganapathy in corner of temple.
See how beautifully the devotees have offered Yellow garland- Sevandhi poo to beautiful Lord Ganesha.
Om Lakshmi Ganapathiye namaha
