(Excerpt from message of Shri Datta Swami)

Today people worship statue of Ganapathi made by earth. Such worship is condemned in the scriptures and especially by Sankara as Parthiva Puja. Ravana used to do this every day and was finally destroyed. It is actually a sin to establish Lord in the earthen statue and you are doing the initiation of life (Prana Pratistha). On the 10th day you are saying "Udvasana", Which means removing the life from the body. It means killing Lord Ganapathi. You can invite the Lord but should never say to Him to get out after your work is over. You are immersing the dead body in the river on the 10th day. Therefore, You should have a permanent photo or statue and worship it every day.

You must invite the Lord every day and should never say to the Lord to go. In fact you should know that your invitation would never bring the Lord unless it is fully filled with devotion. Do you think that He is coming on your invitation and is going out on your Udvasana? Is He your servant? Some people say that if Lord Ganapathi stays in the house the food materials are exhausted quickly. How foolish is this idea? He is the creator of this universe. He created the food and yourself. Should you have such idea towards Him? Is this the devotion? You are treating Him as some human guest because when the guest stays for more days the food materials are exhausted. In fact the statue or photo is not eating even a grain of the food.

In fact Ganapathi represents Satguru who is in human form. If Ganapathi i. E. , Satguru stays in your house forever, Really the food materials get exhausted. In the correct sense of this statement Ganapathi means the human incarnation and not the statue or photo. Thanks! At least you have recognized that Ganapathi means the human form of the Lord and not the statue. Again this statement means that you can keep Satguru in your house for 10 days at the maximum and He should be sent out by 10th day. Therefore, You are treating the Lord as an outsider and not even equal to one of your family members, Whom you keep forever and never say this statement. This shows the value you give to the God! You expect God to protect you in this world in every issue and finally to give the salvation in the upper world?

On this day we should analyse ourselves and feel ashamed regarding our behaviour to the Lord who gave us this human birth and created all this cosmic facilities. The story that Ganapathi curses the moon has also the inner meaning. Moon represents the mind (Chandrama Manaso " Veda). This means that when the Lord comes in the human form, The mind sees the outermost human body only and laughs at the idea that He is the Lord as said in Gita (Avajananti Mam". ). The face of such a fellow should not be seen by real devotees and this is the meaning that we should not see the Moon on this occasion.

Dattaswami, Are the Christians doing something wrong? They have been praying for their God/Jesus to return for over 2000 years. Yet their prayers go largely ignored.

I don't know what's going on here, But I'd like to think aliens have the crap together. If what I've said is irrelevant to the Op, That's my bad.
