picture of an elephant with the god ganesh who is the remover of obstacles and most loved god. His large head invites us to think BIG. His large ears and small mouth remind us to listen more and talk less. His single tusk represents the importance of holding on to the good and eliminating the bad. His large belly---necessary to digest all the world has to offer. Let these teachings become your mantra.
Photo Feature Friday: Holi
@renamalka @vikasvasudev @manishkanojia @exhilarating @vrntrc28 @binit @davaishsingh @chadbowie @360meridianos This past week Hindus everywhere celebrated Holi, an annual festival of colors that signals the start of spring. Thousands of people took to the streets of India, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Nepal to throw scented powders and perfumes at each other. The bright pigments and painted faces made for some great pictures we knew we had to share. Enjoy!
Yamuna in Hinduism
Yamuna is a sacred river in Hinduism and the main tributary of the Ganges, the holiest river of Hinduism. The river worshipped as a Hindu goddess called Yamuna. In the Vedas, Yamuna is known as Yami, while in later literature, she is called Kalindi.
This picture was taken during Holi, the hindu festival. I like the colors and its a cool captured moment in time that's why it interests me. Also is shows the diversity of the people after they are colored by the coloring because in the end they all look the same but truly they are all very diverse in their own way
This elephant could possibly be symbolic as a god, showing religious values and meaning, and also involving nature. The elephant is known as the god Ganesh, or remover of obstacles, which is why he has so many arms and hands. I pinned this because the designs are really interesting.
