During every Ganesh festival, we bring Ganesh Idol to our home or society. We see various forms of Ganesh Idols in the market. Some may wonder about the aspects to be considered for selecting a Ganesh Idol; how does it matter if we select any form ? There are many fancy forms of Ganesh Idol available in the market, therefore, whether to select from them or is there something more to be considered ? In this article, we will see spiritual science related to Ganesh Idol so that we can make or select the one through which we will get maximum spiritual benefit of sattvikta this year.
Sattvik Ganapati Idol for Ganesh festival
Let us understand the science related to Shri Ganapati Idol.
According to the science of vibrations, the vibrations from every figure, change as per the combination of the trigunas (Sattva, Raja and Tama) in it. When the figure is altered, the proportion of the trigunas too changes. The same is the case with the Idols of Deities. Even if there is a slight change in the length, size or form of Shri Ganapati’s arm or in the design of the crown, there will be a change in the overall vibrations of the Idol. Hence, while sculpting each part of the Idol, we have to understand the subtle vibrations and then sculpt the part, as would match the vibrations of the original Principle. Though the entire subject is associated with the subtle dimension, we have provided ahead the measurements of a three-dimensional Idol of Shri Ganesh, so that people get an idea of how a sattvik Idol looks like. The Idol of Shri Ganapati of 34.5 centimeters is shown here as an example. The measurements will proportionately change according to the height of the Idol one wishes to sculpt.
