Gratitude for the Elephant. {Video}

Via on Oct 6, 2013

I’m not fully sure if my love of Ganesha, the elephant deity, has me loving this elephant video, where it spontaneously plays piano, or if it is the reality that my step daughter, Annie, adores elephants.

(She is sure that they are her spirit animal. She weeps inside, some, each time she hears of their being harmed.)

Or maybe my delighting in witnessing  this elephant playing piano (in Thailand) stems from the fact that I carry around a little metal elephant to each yoga class that I teach.

And more recently, with my feelings of being deeply blessed in having the honor to write blogs for such a cool online magazine as elephant journal, has me wishing to pay tribute, through this piano playing elephant, to the editors of elephant journal, to the readers, to the writers, to my step daughter Annie, and her undying love of elephants, (who posts images of them on her wall because they make her happy) and yoga, that which introduced me to Ganesha.

I bow in reference to it all through this joyous piano duet between human and elephant.

Om Gum Ganapataye Namaha, Sharanum, Ganesha. I celebrate and take refuge in the divine creator and remover of all obstacles. This is a chant to bless beginnings, as well as a chant to remove any perceived obstacles.
