Le Petit Ganesha

A few years back my guruji, dear friend, and yoga student, Chetana, gave me a beautiful little wooden Ganesha from India. She was slightly appalled when the traveling altar that I had on display for the first Going Back to the Source: Yoga and Terroir camping retreat, had a tiny, white, pink polka-dotted elephant from the Land of Misfit Toys collection, that was being used as a place keeper until I got a real Ganesh. She just couldn't let this go on.

Since then this gift has traveled with me from studio to studio, class to class, retreat to retreat, and now to France, where I never leave home without it.

Ganesha, the remover of obstacles, I bow to you everyday.
Om gam ganapataye namaha!
