Yashvasin

Should I choose Yashvasin for Y?


Lord Ganesha is one of the most popular and revered deities in India. All prayers start with Lord Ganesha and he is regarded as the remover of obstacles.

So while thinking of what to write for the letter Y at ABC Wednesday, I kept thinking of Lord Ganesha and then looking up the various names of Lord Ganesha I found Yashvasin which means "Beloved and ever popular Lord" and he is truly that amongst Hindus.

I held off for a while wondering if I should choose Yashvasin, when pictures of Lord Ganesha started to appear on TV and Facebook. So when the Universe acknowledges, then one must move in that direction.

I have a vast collection of Lord Ganesha idols. Each time I visit India I get many Lord Ganesha gifts. But here is one of my favourites - a little transparent Ganesha that changes colour.

  1. Wow, this one looks good. How does it change color, though? I liked the transparent look the best, thought the colors are nice too.

    Thanks for the wishes, Suzy!

    1. Thanks Sulekkha. I don't think I've bought a single Ganesha. I just get gifts and I always say Lord Ganesha loves to be at my house. Feel so blessed.

  4. Lord Ganesha is one of my favourites. I love that he can be depicted in hundreds of ways - by a few brush strokes or in the most elaborate drawings. Loved the changing colours of yours.

  5. The spouse and I are huge Ganesha fans. We have a large collection of idols, ranging from tiny to big ones. I think there is a universal appeal factor where He is concerned! I love the multi-coloured ones in your post.

  10. Suzy, I was glad to see you at my blog, about Rollie's funeral: Thank you for your kind words.

    Ganesha is one of my favorite gods. This may seem ironic, since I'm Christian...but I'm the Christian Left, which means I honor all faiths, as well as agnosticism and atheism.

    Whenever my friend George makes his way to India, I always ask him to find me a small Ganesha. My mom's favorite animal (and mine) was/is the elephant, so perhaps that was part of what sparked my interest, but the essence of Ganesha is what kept this being in my heart.

    May you, too, enjoy a peaceful week. Thanks again for letting me come see you. Namaste, Amy

    1. Thanks Amy. Delighted that Lord Ganesha is one of your favourite Gods. I also honour all faiths. So glad you dropped by and shared your thoughts. Someday if you get a chance to visit India, visit Mumbai at Ganesh Chaturthi (birthday of Lord Ganesh). It's an awesome festival. Blessings to you and yours. Namaste.
