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.
To experience the expansive, fractal and fragmented Ganapati is to encounter an entirely new and radical facet of Self, culture, and the collective unconscious.
