Lord Ganesha is one of the most recognizable and revered deities in the Hindu tradition. However, his appeal stretches beyond the boundaries of the Hindu faith and he is beloved the world over for the simplicity of his character: he is the god who clears all obstacles in life, the remover of worries, the patron of wisdom. Worship of Ganesha can take any form: lit candles, incense, or decorations given in his honor.
You don’t have to ascribe to Hindu philosophy to identify with the peace and serenity that Ganesha brings; he is for everyone. Decorate yourself, feel the calm serenity that Ganesha provides to the world and remove your worries with his help.
As the founder of the Buddhist tradition, Siddhartha Gautama’s title of “Buddha” means enlightened one.
Enlightenment can be achieved by discovering and traveling down the Middle Path; to strike a balance between opposing forces of sensual pleasure and self-denial. Like Ganesha, the Buddha enjoys universal appeal around the world for the simplicity of his message of peace, understanding, and harmony between people.
These basic philosophies can be incorporated into your everyday life and your everyday look. No matter who you are or where you live, it is the journey through life that really matters. Find your path, find your peace, discover serenity.
