Art Heritage of India
India is a Nation of rich culture and deep heritage. Across time immemorial, India has transformed itself into
a modern society while also deeply held onto practices and faith that have all-time relevance. Our
understanding and appreciation of the past to a large great extent has helped us retain high values such that
we cherish those and live in our present. Our strong cultural roots have indeed remained our umbilical cord
– one that could never get severed!

L&T has a deep appreciation of India’s culture and believes in strong values and ethos that builds and makes
us who we are and what we are. The Construction Division of L&T, ECC has in fact constantly reflected upon
these very aspects and produced the unique ‘Panchangam Calendar’ year after year, since 2002. Every
year, we have been featuring very many aspects on the deep
Heritage of India, and most of these have been through the detailed
researched works of a noted artist, the late Sri S Rajam.

Sri S Rajam [passed away recently in 2010 January at the age of 92]
was a musician and artist par excellence. L&T – ECC has indeed
been able to reflect upon many of his works in many releases of the
Panchangam Calendar.

L&T – ECC and the ECC Recreation Club is truly happy to bring this
unique Coffee Table Book in the very spirit of highlighting Indian
Heritage - which Sri S Rajam and works have so well presented.

Many of his unpublished works are also being featured in this Panchangam Calendar on 12 Chakras of Music - the mind,
‘Souvenir’ perhaps for the first time! body and soul at Music Academy, Chennai in March 2009.

I am sure this publication will give us more insight into


our true Heritage – that is India. We thank each and
every one who have supported us in this initiative
and made this possible.

Lord Shiva's first son is described as the Supreme Leader (Vinayaka) or as the Leader of the "Ganas" (Ganapati) who attends upon
and follows at all times Lord Shiva, as the Lord of all Obstacles (Vighneshwara). These names clearly show that He is a Master of
all circumstances and not even the divine forces can ever obstruct His path. Since He is thus the Lord of all Obstacles, no Hindu
ritual or auspicious act is ever undertaken without invoking Him. With His Grace, it is believed that no undertaking can fail due to
subjective or objective obstacles.
He is considered as having both Lakshmi and Saraswati, the Godesses of Wealth and Knowledge respectively. In short, He is the
Master of Knowledge (Vidya) and champion of worldly achievements (Avidya).
In this characterization Shri Ganapati represents a Man of Perfect Wisdom, and a fully Realized Vedantin. Westerners are shocked to
notice that Hindus revere a Divine Form which is so ridiculous and absurd. But the Elephant Headed Lord of all Difficulties in life indeed
represents the highest and the best that have ever been given in our Scriptures. To a Vedantic student, since his "path of knowledge" is
essentially intellectual, he must have a great head to conceive and understand the logic of the Vedantic thought, and in fact, the truth
of Vedanta can be comprehended only through listening to a teacher and, therefore, Shravana (listening) is the initial stage to be
mastered by the new initiate. Therefore, Shri Ganapati has large ears representing continuous and intelligent listening to the teacher.
After "listening" (shravana) to the truths of the Upanishads. Vedantic student must independently "reflect" (manana) upon what he
has heard, for which he needs a sensitive intelligence with ample sympathy to discover in himself sufficient accommodation for all
living creatures in the universe.
His intellect must have such depth and width in order to embrace in his vision the entire world - of - plurality. Not only must he, in
his visualization, embrace the whole cosmos, but he must have the subtle discriminative power (viveka) in him to distinguish the
changing, perishable, matter vestures from the Eternal, Immutable, All Pervading Consciousness, the Spirit. This discrimination is
possible only when the intellect of the student has consciously cultivated this power to a large degree of perfection.
The trunk, coming down the forehead of the elephant face, has got a peculiar efficiency and beats all achievements of man and
his ingenuity in the mechanical and scientific world. Here is a "tool" which can at once uproot a tree or pick up a pin from the
ground. The elephant can lift and pull heavy weights with his trunk and, at the same time, it is so sensitive at its tip that the same
instrument can be employed by the elephant to pluck a blade of grass. The mechanical instruments cannot have this range of
adaptability. The spanner that is used for tightening the bolts of a gigantic wheel cannot be used to repair a lady's watch. Like the
elephant's trunk, so should be the perfect discriminative faculty of an evolved intellect so that it can use its discrimination fully in
the outer world for resolving gross problems, and at the same time, efficiently employ its discrimination in the subtle realms of the
inner personality layers.

17
The discriminative power in us can function only where there are two factors to discriminate between; these two factors represent
the tusks of the elephant and the trunk growing down between them. Between good and evil, right and wrong, and all the
dualities must we discriminate and come to our own judgements and conclusions in life. Shri Vinayaka is represented as having
lost one of His tusks in a quarrel with Parshurama, a great disciple of Lord Shiva. This broken tusk indicates that a real Vedantic
student of subjective experience is one who has gone beyond the pairs - of -opposites (dwandwaatita).

He has the widest mouth and the largest appetite. In Kubera's Palace, He cured Kubera's vanity that in his riches he had become
the 'Treasurer of the Heavens '. When Kubera offered Him a dinner He ate all the food that was prepared for the entire guests.
Thereafter, He started eating the utensils and then the decorative pandal, and still He was not satisfied. Then his father, Lord
Shiva, approached Him and gave Him a handful of "puffed rice" to eat. Eating this he became satisfied.

The above story narrated in the Puranas, is very significant that a Man of Perfection has an endless appetite for life. He lives in the
Consciousness and to him every experience, good or bad, is only a play of the Infinite through him. Lord Shiva, the Teacher, alone can
satisfy the hungers of such sincere students by giving them a handful of "roasted rice", representing fried seeds, indicating the "baked
vasanas", burnt in the Fire of Knowledge. When one's vasanas are burnt up, the inordinate enthusiasm of experiencing life is also
whetted.

A Man of Perfection must have a big belly to stomach peacefully, as it were, all the experiences of life, auspicious and
inauspicious.

When such a Mastermind sits dangling his foot down, it is again significant, in the symbolism of the Puranas. Generally we move
about in the world through the corridors of our experiences on our two feet, or the inner subtle body, the mind and the intellect. A
Perfect Man of Wisdom has integrated them both to such an extent that they have become in him as One - an intellect into which
the mind has folded and has become completely subservient.

At such a great Yogi's feet are the endless eatables of life, meaning, the enjoyable glories of physical existence. All powers come to
serve Him, the entire world of cosmic forces are, thereafter, His obedient servants, seeking their shelter at His feet; the whole
world and its environment is waiting at His feet for His pleasure and command.

In the representation of Shri Vinayaka we always find a mouse sitting in the midst of the beautiful, fragrant readymade food, but if
you observe closely, you will find that the poor mouse is sitting looking up at the Lord, shivering with anticipation, but not daring to
touch anything without His command. Now and then, He allows the mouse to eat.

A mouse is a small little animal with tiny teeth, and yet, in a barn of grain a solitary mouse can bring disastrous losses by
continuously gnawing and nibbling at the grain. Similarly, there is a "mouse" within each personality which can eat away even a
mountain of merit in us, and this mouse is the power of desire. The Man of Perfection is one who has so perfectly mastered this
urge to acquire, possess and enjoy, this self - annihilating power of desire, that it is completely held in obedience to the will of the
Master. And yet, when the Master wants to play His part in blessing the world He rides upon the mouse. Meaning, it is a desire to
do service to the world that becomes His vehicle to move about and act.

The Puranas tell us how once Shri Vighneshwara, while riding His mouse, was thrown down and it looked so ridiculous that the
Moon laughed at the comic sight. It is said in the Puranas that the great - bellied Lord Vinayaka looked at the Moon and cursed
that nobody would ever look at the Moon on that day - the Vinayaka Chaturthi.

When a Man of Perfection (Vinayaka) moves about in the world, riding on His insignificant - looking vehicle, the "desire" to serve (mouse),
the gross intellects of the world (Moon, the presiding Deity of the Intellect) would be tempted to laugh at such prophets and seers.

The Lord of Obstacles, Shri Vighneshwara, has four arms representing the four inner equipments (antahkarana). In one hand He
has a Rope, in another an Axe. With the Axe, He cuts off the attachments of His devotees to the world of plurality and thus ends all
the consequent sorrows. With the Rope, He pulls them nearer and nearer to the Truth, and ultimately ties them down to the
Highest Goal. In his third hand He holds a rice ball (modaka), representing the reward of the joys of sadhana which He gives His
devotees. With the other hand He blesses all His devotees and protects them from all obstacles on their Spiritual Path of seeking
the Supreme.

On the spiritual pilgrimage, all the obstacles are created by the very subjective and objective worlds in the seeker himself. His
attachment to the world of objects, emotions and thoughts, are alone his obstacles. Shri Vighneshwara chops them off with an
Axe and holds the attention of the seeker constantly towards the Higher with the Rope that He has in His left hand. Enroute, He
feeds the seeker with modaka (the joy of satisfaction experienced by the evolving seeker of Reality) and blesses him continuously
with greater and greater progress, until at last, the Man of Perfection becomes Himself the Lord of Obstacles, Shri Vighneshwara.

The above three of four examples should clearly bring to your mind the art employed by Vyasa in his mystical word paintings. It
must be evidently clear to all sensitive thinkers that the representations given in the various symbolisms are not as many different
Deities, but that they are vivid pen portraits of the subjective Truth described in the Upanishadic lore. The student must have the
subtle sensitivity of a poet, the ruthless intellect of a scientist, and the soft heart of the beloved, in order to enter into the enchanted
realm of mysticism created by the poet - seer, Vyasa.

To the crude intellect and its gross understanding, these may look ridiculous; but art can be fully appreciated only by hearts that
have art in them. With at least a cursory knowledge of Vedanta, when we review the Puranas they cannot strike us as extremely
noisy but reverberating with the clamouring echoes of the Upanishadic melody.
