The Coconut

Bow to the Almighty, shed the negativity

Break open the ego, let the soul flow

Frayed the coconut may be

But with Him, peace be with thee


Among Hindus, coconut holds a symbolic value in worshiping any deity. The hard shell generally is considered to be one’s ego which is broken to let the water (one’s soul) out and then taste the fruit after bowing to God.

This week Indians celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi in honor of Lord Ganesha. I took this photo during the pooja at my house. In the background, you can see the turmeric, fruits and flowers offered during pooja. It coincided well with the challenge of the week Fray and, hence, this post.

A small disclaimer: I am not religious. More of a hypotheist. More on that in a future post. Keep visiting. 🙂
