Dynamic Viewing

I just found out about the dynamic viewing feature introduced by Blogger. You just type the word "view"
at the end of the URL in the address bar above and then the blog appears with a drop down menu offering different ways of seeing the posts, including a mosaic or flip cards of thumbnail images from the whole site. This sure beats going through the whole blog page by page to browse the images. Try it.
Dynamic viewing may not be supported by older web browsers.

Three Heads

Trimukha (three-faces) Ganapati, symbolises that Lord Ganesha pervades and transcends the three states of being: past, present and future; corresponding to the three gunas (channels) of existence: tamas, sattva and rajas. 
When human beings dwell in the past or future (tamas and rajas) they live in illusion, but true being (sattva) resides in the present moment. Tamas leads to emotionalism, inertia and conditioning; rajas leads to egoism and domination of others; but sattva is conducive to Self-realisation.
