Pearl Ganesh Pendant
Ganesha carved in natural Pearl and made in brass as a pendant. Ganesha is Vighneshvara or Vighnaraja or Vighnaharta the Lord of Obstacles, both of a material and spiritual order. He is popularly worshipped as a remover of obstacles, though traditionally he also places obstacles in the path of those who need to be checked. Paul Courtright says that "his task in the divine scheme of things, his dharma, is to place and remove obstacles. It is his particular territory, the reason for his creation."
Ganesha, the name itself wards off negativity and obstacles from life, is the destroyer of vanity, selfishness and pride. He is always accompanied by wisdom, intellect and prosperity. Lord Ganesha is widely revered as the remover of obstacles and more generally as the Lord of beginnings and the Lord of obstacles, patron of arts and sciences, and the deva of intellect and wisdom. He is honoured at the beginning of rituals and ceremonies.

A holy book? A spiritual classic? A mystical conversation between man & God?
For one, I think it's it’s India’s most significant gift to the world. (I used to think it was Paneer, but I’m getting wiser as my beard grows longer so bear with me) 😂😂 Ok let's get serious.
In my opinion, the Bhagavad Gita is the Google maps to reach life’s ultimate destination - liberation/self-realisation/oneness with God.
Consistent with the Hindu way - there is no ‘one path’, because no individual is the same. It shows you the different routes (but also recommends the quicker one) however the choice is yours - you can the best one for you depending on your circumstance. Setting the scene for the Gita is the battle of the Mahabharata- the vastest epic in any world literature.
A war ensues between 2 sets of cousins, the Kauravas and the Pandavas, that takes place in approximately 1000 B.C.
Upon realising that the men he’s about to kill are his uncles, grandfathers and cousins, Arjuna, the great warrior prince (a Pandava) loses his nerve before the battle begins, and asks His charioteer (Krishna ) what to do?
Krishna, no ordinary charioteer, but an incarnation of God, has to now convince Arjuna to fight the battle against evil. A perfect metaphor for us humans to fight the demons we face, which often reside inside us, no matter what.
In order to convince Arjuna, Lord Krishna enters into 700 verses of sublime instruction, that beautifully form a step by step manual, a guidebook, on how to navigate the battlefield of life.
We have found enough evidence to prove that war took place for real, in the Northern plains of India, however for us, 3000 years later - that war is just a perfect backdrop.
For us, the war is not an external one, but rather a metaphor for the war within, for self mastery, that all of us humans face and must conquer in order to live a life that is meaningful and attains it’s purpose.
So the best way to read the Gita, is as a manual to navigate your way through life.
