In chasing material desires, fame and wealth, we lose connection with our inner selves.
Most of the time, we ask ourselves questions like: Am I really happy? Have I achieved all I can?
Ganesha tells you that happiness is a state of mind that is achieved when you are able to communicate with your inner self.
If you observe the Ganesha idol carefully, you will notice that while one of his feet rests on the ground, the other is neatly folded up. This symbolises a healthy balance of materialism and spirituality.
While it is impossible to let go of one’s material desires, it is important to maintain a healthy balance between one’s spiritual and material needs to lead a happy and content life.
