ll Om gaṇapataye namah ll
Ganga ji flows. Gaṇapati smiles.
There are stones. Big and small on the path.
Sometimes she goes over them.
Sometimes she goes under them.
Sometimes she turns direction.
Sometimes she goes around them.
Sometimes she rushes. Sometimes she is relaxed.
What defines her are not the boulders and stones.
What defines her is not even the path she takes.
What defines her is not the pace of her journey.
What defines her is not even whom she meets
What defines her is her nature – that she flows.
In the river of life I flow. In the river of life the stones stand.
Each does their own thing.
Ganga ji flows. Gaṇapati smiles
