chetnasart. Mushaka’ is listening!

Ganesha temples always have his ‘Vaahan’ (carr

Mushaka’ is listening! Ganesha temples always have his ‘Vaahan’ (carriage), the mouse, sitting at the entrance facing Him. He is not only Lord Ganesha’s ‘savaari’ (vehicle to ride) but also his confidant and friend. So the tradition of whispering one’s wishes in Mushaka’s ears got established in the belief that he would covey those wishes to Lord Ganesha adding his own recommendations to them and one’s wishes would come true. When we visited the Swayambhu Shri Ganesha temple on the sea front at Ganpatipule, Mushaka eagerly lent his ear to us. Notice in this picture how he appears to be leaning towards me! Lord Ganesha is known as Vighnaharta or destroyer of obstacles. That is why he is invoked at the commencement of any auspicious act. It is believed that he chose the Mouse as his vehicle because mice can squeeze into nooks and corners, tiny holes and narrow pathways, even in the dark. Thus, Lord Ganesha can enter everywhere and remove whatever obstacles there may be in the path of his devotees. Another likely reason could be that in ancient times, agriculture was the primary occupation of people. Rodents would eat up standing crops and destroy stored grains. Lord Ganesha with the mouse as his vehicle is symbolic of having conquered this menace true to his reputation of Vighnaharta, the destroyer of obstacles. The mythological story in the Ganesha Purana says that once Krauncha a musician-God stepped on the foot of Muni Vanadeva who got enraged and cursed him to become a mouse. Now Krauncha became a huge mouse and went about destroying whatever he stepped on. Lord Ganesha controlled him through this noose and brought him to his feet intending to punish him. But Krauncha asked for his forgiveness which lord Ganesha promised only if he agreed to become his Vaahan. Krauncha agreed. Later he found Lord Ganesha to be too heavy to bear so he requested Ganesha to become light in weight. Lord Ganesha obliged and ever since the mouse is his vehicle. #ganesha🙏 #ganesha🙏 #mouse🐭 #ganeshatemple #ganpatipule #ratnagiri #maharashtra #temples #ganeshtemple #templebythesea #lordganesh #travelblogger #travelblog #traveller_stories Post 141

Очередной полезности пост, который надо было сделать давно, но все руки не доходили (даже не представляю, как переводчик переведёт это тем, кто не знает русского 😅) Армянская церковь Сурб-Карапет в селе Несветай Мясниковского района. Она была основана при переселении крымских армян на донские земли более 200 лет назад и строилась почти 100 лет, что весьма быстро, учитывая, как и чем раньше строили. Причем армяне в процессе строительства хотели начать строить вообще другую церковь, так как архитектура этой пришлась им не по вкусу, да и выбранное место что-то не понравилось. Однако вольностей не разрешили и достроили первоначальную. После революции храм остался без денег, быстро обветшал и закрылся до лучших времён (ну хоть не взорвали и то хорошо), которые так и не наступили. Во время Великой Отечественной войны храм сильно пострадал от обстрелов и бомбежек и уже в таком виде дожил до наших дней. Так что те развалины, которые мы можем видеть сейчас, это натуральное эхо войны. Продолжу в комментариях. Photo catalog: #ritter_religion #ritter_idea #ritter_landscape #ritter_history

This picture took my breath away. The dress, the details, the pose, the background...everything about it left me in awe. But most importantly the woman in the picture. When I look at myself these days I understand my journey much better. Everything that I’ve endured has truly worked out for my good. I needed it all the good, the bad & the ugly. All glory to God because in all of it he has kept his word to me. I’m just grateful 💥❤️ Today have a moment of reflection and you’ll see just how blessed you truly are! • • • • #blessed #love #gratitude #god #mosthighgod #jennasworldview🌏 #bangkok #watphotemple #watphotemplebangkok #watphothailand #travelohotography #mytravelgram #traveltheworld #happytraveller #seetheworldthroughmyeyes #blackgirltravelslay #blackgirltravelstheworld #blackgirltravels #ilovethailand #thailanddaily #travelshots #travelcommunity #like #followforfollowback #share #instadaily #buddhastatue #buddah #temples #buddhismtemple
