Ganesha of the Tantra
Ganesha becomes first among the gods, a standing he did not enjoy until the rise of classical Hinduism. He is, of course, ubiquitous, immensely popular in every corner of India, and unmistakably himself. The core elements of his mythology and many of his popular stories are likely well known to you. But there are aspects and forms, myths, mantras, yantra, and puja within the Tantric tradition that extend far beyond any familiar representations. To experience the expansive, fractal and fragmented Ganapati is to encounter an entirely new and radical facet of Self, culture, and the collective unconscious. Ganesha of the Tantra extends our mythic culture and the cycles of the Shiva Shakti Complex and wholly revises our understanding and appreciation. In short, Ganapati like you have never met him before.

Rajanaka India - Temple Pilgrimage - Tamil Nadu, India
December 29th, 2019 - January 14th, 2020
Our focus this year, including Chidambaram of course, is on Ganesha. New temples, abhishekas, homa, places you have never been, stories you have not likely ever heard.
We'll also see Muruga in his most sacred places: Swamimalai, Palini, and my favorite of all favorites, Tiruchendur.
We will also visit the Temple of the Nine Planets.
We will see the Great Goddess in her most exquisite forms, including the inner sanctum of Minakshi of Madurai and of course Tillai Kali, Sivakamasundari and others.
We are planning on taking the 29 baths at Rameshvaram and seeing a few new, secret places along the way.
