At Ganapati's Feet

At Ganapati's Feet

Daily Life with the Elephant-Headed Deity

This clear gem of a book reveals new facets of wisdom on every page. A must-read for every seeker. 


David Dillard-Wright delivers a direct path to spiritual illumination through a series of aphorisms gained through meditation on beloved Ganesha, the elephant-headed Remover of Obstacles. Readers will learn how to cultivate Self-Realization, create positive work spaces, and avoid the pitfalls of the religious life. Practical guides to daily sadhana are included, along with vignettes from the author's life.


I read a LOT of books and occasionally one of them makes me say "WOW"...this book is one of those: Reading David Dillard-Wright's book At Ganapati's Feet yesterday had my brain whirring, my heart bursting and all kinds of epithany moments. David takes you on his own personal journey with Lord Ganesha and it is moving, beautiful and down right inspirational. The book not only gives you information on who Lord Ganesha is and how he works with you but also includes guidance on how you can work with him in return and takes you through some of the daily spiritual practices you can use. This book for me personally is a bit of a life changer. I read this on the Kindle but I will be pre-ordering a paperback copy as I think this one will be in my 'well thumbed' collection. ~ Rachel Patterson, Witch, High Priestess and Author

This is an interesting little book, about a big subject, Ganesha the elephant-headed deity. It details the adoption of daily Hindu practice by a man who describes himself as a Christian, and is also a professor of philosophy. His handling of the topic is open, honest, straight-forward and thoughtful. It is well worth the short time it takes to read and raises many interesting topics in integrative religion and spirituality. ~ David R Kopacz, MD., Author of Re-humanising Medicine

Beautifully written, this is a charming and engaging book exploring spirituality in a number of ways. Author David Dillard-Wright talks personally about his relationship with Hinduism and his devotion to Ganesha. He also explores more intellectual and traditional aspects of faith. I found the considerations of aspects of Christianity and how Hinduism can cast them in a new light utterly engaging. For anyone interested in comparative religion, it is entirely worth buying the book just for this chapter. As someone with a purely academic interest in other faiths, I found this book as interesting as it is engaging and can very much recommend it for those who are simply curious. It is a book that allows you to explore and experience without demanding that you do or think anything. ~ Nimue Brown, author
