Welcome to Nithyananda Vedic Temple Bay Area
Temples and their significance
There comes a time in our lives when we begin to question many of the Vedic rituals and practices. We fail to understand the importance or significance of them. Here we find answers to some of these fundamental questions. What you read here is the essence of the messages conveyed by Swami Paramahamsa Nithyananda in many of his discourses and books.
Lord Ganapathy is the supreme expression of super consciousness. He is the Lord of beginnings. His very form itself radiates joy and removes obstacles. If we understand his form, we will understand the truth presented in his form. His is the most worshipped form of the Divine in the Hindu pantheon. Ganapathy is the only God who is worshipped by all six Vedic traditions. A much loved and revered God, he is always remembered as simple, innocent and easily approachable. In his four hands, he holds angusha (elephant prods typically used to direct or steer elephants) in one hand, pasa (noose) in another, his own broken tusk in the third hand, and a sweet in the last.
