UKT notes


From: http://www.urday.in/ritual1.htm 100819


Lord Ganesha who is also known as VRIKODARA which means who has fire by the name of VRIKA in his stomach i.e. one who has great hunger. So Durvaa Grass which has both cold and medicinal properties in it is considered as an ideal offering for Lord Ganesha.

Lord Ganesha, should not be offered such things which have hot properties, as it would magnify the heat and hunger. Beside that Durvaa has also medicinal properties if the juice extracted from the Durva grasses are applied to any part of the body having a wound it cured the wound. The reason for offering Durvaa grass to Lord Ganesha is that, since Lord Shiva had cut Ganesha's head and an elephant head was fixed later on, to the heal the wound which still might not have healed, Durvaa grass is offered.

UKT: Nothing with "hot properties" to be offered to a deity reminds me of the Lord of the Great Mountain, {ming:ma.ha-gi.ri.} - the chief of the house-hold Nat {nût} in Myanmar, and his sister who jumped into the execution-fire of her brother. Since, as a man he was executed by being burnt alive, nothing hot (temperature-wise) that would remind him of his fire-execution must be offered. Therefore lighted candles, in fact any light, must NOT be offered,  and eatables that had been offered to him must NOT be cooked on a fire. In the house itself his shrine consists of a green coconut whose milk is supposed to have medicinal properties for burnt victims. For more information on the Lord of the Great Mountain, see Folk-elements\ch06-1-nat\ch06-1-mahagiri.htm in another CD-packet of my works.
