Remover of Obstacles

Today I went to a celebration of the Hindu god Ganesh at the Pacific Asia Art Museum, which involved a mix of traditional instruments and laptop computers. At one point a poem from a member of the group in Germany was read to the audience via YouTube. The associated exhibition of photographs encouraged visitors to the museum to go to the website for Discovering Ganesh, which combines a number of competing rhetorics: promoting tourism, spurring humanitarian aid to a developing country, and proselytizing for one of the world's major religions.
