This is called ‘Soma-Ganapathy’. Ganapathy and Rama Nama

Nama Article 8th September 2013


Source: Soma Ganapathy


Generally, in Shiva temples, the deities of Parvathi and Parameswara are found along with ‘Skanda’ or ‘Muruga’.   This is called ‘soma-skanda’.  It is this deity that is taken in procession.


Thenampakkam (Sivasthanam) is a small village next to Chinna-Kanchipuram where Kanchi Maha Periyava (Sri Chandrasekarendra Saraswati) camped for quite some time.


The interesting aspect of this place is that, it is only here that Parvathi and Prameswara are found along with Vinayaka (Ganesha).  This is called ‘Soma-Ganapathy’


Please check these: Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji


A good family is a family which chants Nama regularly


Ganapathy and Rama Nama


Pillayar and Lord Krishna – One gets immediate benefits on remembering Lord Krishna and his Leelas


In divine presence, even the deadliest of enemies lose their tendency of hatred.


That is verily their ‘Kula Mantra’.


Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :


Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
