GANAPATI - THE SUPREME PURUSH

Yogi Ashwini of Dhyan Ashram
We have come down from Satyug, through treta and dwapar, to kalyug - the darkest of the four yugas. Darkness here refers to the ignorance, or lack of gyan - because of which everyone is chasing the physical or the unreal, and believes that to be the ultimate reality of birth and life.
In earlier yugas, the thoughts and desires were undiluted, there was purity in elements and consciousness was the prime energy through which things were carried out. Because the purity levels were high, consciousness manifested easily. As the yugas progressed and dilutions started setting in, there arose a need for Gods. 33 koti Gods were created, namely Prajapati, Indra, 8 Vasus, 12 Adityas and 11 Rudras and each God was assigned a specific role in manifested creation.
