Have a rosary hanging from the rear view mirror (the one in the cabin). Wanted to put a Ganesh statue as well (wife is hindu) but not getting the correct fit and the Petra dash is awful for these sort of things. The ones that we stuck kept falling off. The sticker idea is good though. Not too much of a religious person though.

My Mom put a Rosary on the rear view mirror and a cross on the dashboard.

I agree... strongly believe, that religion is a private thing.

Depends on which car my wife is driving. Now it is the Adventure all the time. She has a cross from Vatican hanging from the rear view mirror pod. My GTX just has a bunch of psychedelic cajun beads on the gearstick!! I like the sound they make when I change gears. (Not sure if she has kept a rosery somewhere, though)

Well I know of some people (Off the forum) who visit temples, mount idols & their posters everywhere, use religious ringtones etc. etc. just to show off how religious they are but in reality are quite different! Hence, the comment.

off topic, do you keep in mind the safety part while installing these. in case of a crash they can hurt you, especially metal idols poking out from the dash.

and then the ones blocking/distracting the view.

PS: I don't believe in anything related to religion.

Or the rosary strangling you. Which is why I pray before leaving, "God please don't strangle me in case I have an accident. I am human."

I used to have a M&M Peanut Figurine in my Uno. It was well a yellow egg with legs and it had a barbell lifted above its head. Sort of a yellow egg weight lifter

Well. to each his own . God is everywhere and in our hearts but that does not stop believers from visiting Kashi / Rameshwar / Mecca / medina Vatican / Golden temple / Velankanni / shirdi / sidhi vinayak etc.. isnt it?

If we take the sentence " god is everywhere " in a literal sense, then there would be no temples / mosques/ churches / gurudwaras anywhere in the world.
