Why go for Chocolate Ganesha?
As per our shastras, the human body is composed of these 5 elements, Akash (Ether), Vayu (Air), Agni (Fire), Jala (water) and Prithvi (Earth) called Pancha mahabhuta and we are alive because of Prana.
The Ganesha idol should be made with the elements of Pancha mahabhuta, then only prana pratishtha of the lord happens in the idol. And after visarjan again it should get merged in one of the Pancha mahabhuta. That’s why there is a tradition of # making idols from clay, one of the tatva of Pancha mahabhuta, Earth. We immerse the idol in water, again one of the elements of Pancha mahabhuta.
Chocolate is made from cacao beans and sugar, both 100% natural products. Cacao beans and sugarcane both are plantation crops, grow on earth. So essentially the chocolate idol is made from earth, one of the Pancha mahabhuta.
Now the human body is also made of space, air, fire, water and earth – Pancha mahabhuta. So when you immerse the idol in milk and give that chocolate milk as prasad to the little kids, it again merges into Pancha mahabhuta. Moreover, you are immersing it in not just one but all five tattvas of Pancha mahabhuta. Absolutely as per our shastras have suggested.
With chocolate Ganesha, you are following all the rituals correctly in the best possible manner. You are not harming the environment in any way. You are making some deserving little kids happy and most of all, you are making Bappa happy.
Chocolate Ganesha – there cannot be a better way to celebrate the festival.
“Surely we have a responsibility to care for our planet. The future of humanity, and indeed all life on earth, depends on us.”
