„Symbolically, Ganesha represents the basic unity of the macrocosm and microcosm, the immense being (the elephant) and the individual being (man).“

— Alain Daniélou
Context: Symbolically, Ganesha represents the basic unity of the macrocosm and microcosm, the immense being (the elephant) and the individual being (man). This highly implausible identity is however a fundamental reality and the key to all mystic or ritual experience as well as to Yogic possibilities. Without being aware of Ganesha, and without worshipping him, no accomplishment is possible. Alain Daniélou, in [http://books.google.co.in/books?id=QDQK7l13WIIC&pg=PA89 Gods of Love and Ecstasy: The Traditions of Shiva and Dionysus (1992), p. 90]. <!-- Inner Traditions / Bear & Co, 1 May 1992 -->

„The faithful of Shiva or Dionysus seek contact with those forces which...lead to a refusal of the politics, ambitions and limitations of ordinary social life.“

— Alain Daniélou
Context: The faithful of Shiva or Dionysus seek contact with those forces which... lead to a refusal of the politics, ambitions and limitations of ordinary social life. This does not involve simply a recognition of world harmony, but also an active participation in an experience which surpasses and upsets the order of material life. Alain Daniélou, in Gods of Love and Ecstasy: The Traditions of Shiva and Dionysus
