You may know our dear Sri Ganesha as the remover of obstacles. Always to be worshipped at the start of a new endeavor.
Recently, I found myself at the start of a huge new endeavor, helping to rebuild an entire earthquake-stricken village in Nepal, in a district called Lamjung. I first went to Lamjung 20 years ago and it was a place that brought me a lot of peace and healing in my life, and I became part of a family there. Now, we are working together to rebuild a village that is even better than it was before the earthquake.
The original carving was made by me in my studio in Brooklyn, NY, but I learned my skills as a Fulbright scholar in Nepal, working with the world-renowned statue makers of Patan, in the Kathmandu.
For each purchase, $60 will be sent to the fund for redeveloping Nepali villages. See www.sang-sangai.org for more.
