Ganesha, 8th century. Central Vietnam. Lent by National Museum of Vietnamese History, Ho Chi Minh City (BTLS 5929) | This is the largest seated Ganesha preserved from any Cham territory and, along with the standing Ganesha found in temple E5 at My Son (cat. no. 100), demonstrates the stature of the Ganesha cult in the Shaiva world of the early Cham heartland. #LostKingdoms
Sometimes, you feel you are completely disconnected from others, or feel left out. At such times, do not struggle to get connected. You may feel disconnected but do not feel sad. In sleep, you are totally disconnected from the person closest to you, aren’t you? You cannot take anybody else into your sleep state of consciousness. Accept this with a smile, meditate; strength from deep within you will arise.
