The first episode of SONY TV Series Vighnaharta Ganesh aired on August 22, 2017. After several cast changes, COVID, etc. the last episode aired November 12, 2021. I was trying to catch up but my own life took a hard left and I fell far behind. The closest Hindu temple is over 250 miles west. I prayed for a solution and the idea of watching the series as a form of bhakti yoga struck a chord. The series brought to life stories from the Puranas, presented each of the avatars of each of the deities, brought the viewer into the Ramayana, and the Mahabharata!
In addition, each avatar’s story was told. Extracting clips will take a long time so please be patient. Much of this material is buried in books. Thanks to CGI, it’s a lot easier now to do visualization and thus, devotion. Each avatar has his/her own teachings for us to learn and each has various qualities for us to emulate.
Some of the episodes dragged and others made me sit up and gasp. The story arc about the battle with Bhandāsura seemed to be one that dragged and then in Episode 340, I sat with my mind spinning. For one thing, the CGI is very impressive, but the script hit home.
I started my website and blog in March 2021 with the intent to explore the MULTIVERSE. Well, did you know that there are EIGHT (8) universes, 9 divine goddesses, 10 knowledgeable goddesses, 12 Adityas, 8 Vasus, 2 Ashwini Kumars, and 8 versions of Kumar Kartikeya?
Did you know there are 8 versions of Brahma and Saraswati, Vishnu and Mata Laxmi, and finally Mahadev (Shiva) and Parvati.
Did you know there is an Adi Parashakti and her consort?
Did you know there’s a combined form of Shiva and Parvati?
If not watch the Playlist and read the links below. This is part one of a series of blog posts about HOW all the combined deities from ALL the universes had to perform a sacrifice into order to save the universe(s).
