My name is Sucharita, a Pillai Center Teacher and your guide in this Weekly Call Program called Sundays with Sucharita. I’ll be giving you insights, tips and tools for getting the most out of your spiritual practices and how to apply those teachings in your daily life. I’m always happy to share what I’ve learned during the past 17 years as a student and mentor of Dr Pillai’s programs offered through Pillai Center and AstroVed Advisory Services. If you’re not able to join every week, there will be recordings of the calls and other weekly teachings made available for you to download on the Pillai Center Blog under the Sundays with Sucharita tab. It’s up to you how often you’d like to join the calls, although as Dr Pillai shares, it is important that everyone establishes a regular routine to enjoy the benefits of the teachings and services offered. It is a pleasure to be of service and I’m looking forward to sharing in your weekly transformation process. See you on Sundays! Sucharita

The Truth Shall Set you Free!

karuppasamy7

The Sun represents our soul and Sunday is the day for our soul to set the trajectory for the coming week!  If we feel overwhelmed and out of control at this time of the year, we must turn inside to connect with the Divine.  As the Sun has entered into Capricorn, it’s going to bring to our attention our true purpose (dharma) in our lives. Try to stay away from the news being broadcast on TV, papers and internet.  This news has been filtered by a certain point of view, and usually it’s not a positive slant! Negativity clouds our perception of our true purpose.

Dr. Pillai says that even the gods in the heavens are competing with each other!  As above, so below.  Whatever is going on earth plane is all a play of consciousness. All of us are watching the play from our own ego perspective, so everyone sees things differently! Once we see that we are all one, we may see things clearly from the highest point of view. Dr. Pillai is giving us the tools to be able to advance ourselves on the spiritual path, so we can see through the drama, identify with our Highest Self and attain our highest purpose.  We ask ourselves “what are we doing here?  Are we an experiment in the experience of being human?”  If we can transcend the earthly drama, we will look at the lessons we are learning from a different perspective, from a spiritual perspective and we will see the Truth.  This Truth will set you free!

Dr. Pillai is opening a temple for Karuppaswamy today in his own village in India. Watch Dr Pillai’s FREE Karuppaswamy Webcast and the Karuppaswamy Fire Lab (replay will hopefully be available soon on Astroved’s YouTube channel. There will be an invitation-only opportunity to participate in a Karuppaswamy Reading and Remedy event by Advisory Services. Email Sucharita for more information on this. (Email address is at the end of this email.)

Sucharita reminds us to get the Astroved Calendar so we can use old-school technologies (as in opening the calendar and reading the information!) to stay in touch with the energies of the day, weeks and months.

Important Upcoming Events This Week: Check the Pillai Center and the AstroVed Event Calendars for other upcoming events. Depending on where you live, the times or the day of the week will be different.  Check the Panchang with your location to see when you should be observing the rituals.

Karuppaswamy Descends to the Earth
Karuppaswamy is a god who has been unfortunately misunderstood for long as the God for village folks, and who is in charge of guarding their farms and houses and so forth. But this is incorrect!  He is the God of Miracles. He is going to do miracles. Invoke Karuppaswamy of justice and miracles on these 2 days for solutions to life problems.

6th Moon – Muruga’s Power Time

The 6th Waxing Moon (called Shasti in Sanskrit) is the most appropriate time to win the battle against negativity and evil eyes. This is a peak day for absorbing the energies of Lord Muruga (a divine warrior/healer) and the planet Mars. Muruga specializes in solving problems such as credit card debt, legal issues, health problems, etc. Call on Muruga by chanting Om SaRaVaNaBaVa on this day and by pouring milk/juice/water over a vel.

th Moon – Kala Bhairava’s Day for Timeline Jumping

Dr. Pillai says “On the 19th there is a special invocation of 4 different Bhairavas representing 4 different time periods.  Bhairava is a deity who has not been understood in his totality. The popular understanding about Bhairava is that he is like a guardian, who guards the temple and also protects people. There are a couple of different understandings which are very important for us.” Kala Bhairava has the ability to dissolve repetitive negative patterns that result in procrastination, lethargy, anxiety, and lack of motivation. Kala Bhairava makes you value your time so you can make the best use of the opportunities at hand and maximize gains.

Remember Saturn is transiting into Sagittarius on:
Thursday, Jan 26th, 2017
Dr. Pillai says that Saturn’s transit is considered the most significant as he is responsible for delivering good and bad things in your life based on your previous karma and the karma accrued in this lifetime. On January 26, 2017, Saturn will be entering the sign Sagittarius, ruled by benevolent Jupiter. Saturn transiting in the 9th sign of the natural zodiac for three years is a beneficial time for progress, especially after gaining more knowledge in core areas related to your profession. Though there could be tough lessons from Saturn for signs Virgo and Taurus due to 4th and 8th house influences respectively, in general, Saturn’s placement in benefic Jupiter’s house will reduce its malefic effects and make him shower progressive benefits.

Vedic Winter Solstice – Sun Enters Capricorn

49982
Today is a power day for Vishnu called Vaikunta Ekadasi, where he opens the doors to heaven and can give wealth and enlightenment blessings. Om Namo Narayanaya!

Currently Sun is still transiting the most idealistic sign, Sagittarius. This Friday January 13th at 9:05 p.m. EST Sun will move into Capricorn. This is called the Vedic Winter Solstice, and it initiates the six months of the year when the Sun is moving northward through the zodiac. North being the direction of Kubera, the banker in heaven, means that this is a favorable time to start new ventures, and it supports financial growth. The Sun is bringing in new life force, consciousness, and purpose into the world. Henceforth more light will be coming in.

This is a perfect time to throw out the old and welcome in the new. Especially in this week leading up to the Vedic Winter Solstice, clean out the clutter in your closets, office, house. Donate or throw away old items from your past that don’t fit with the new life you are in the process of creating. This can include old clothing that you don’t wear, items you aren’t using, and broken and unusable things.

Revisit your goal list and reassess what you are doing. Make changes where needed. The energy will support letting go of bad habits and old ways of being. Empower your goals by writing them and/or creating a vision board. It is a great time to focus on your career and life purpose because Capricorn is the natural 10th house of profession.

The Sun symbolizes our soul, activity, royalty, and the father. The Sun nourishes the whole world with its light. Capricorn, or Makara in Sanskrit, is a sign of ancient past life abilities and ancient past life karmas. It is symbolized by an animal with the head of a deer and the hind part of a crocodile. A deer is a very gentle and curious animal, while a crocodile is an ancient predator that has enormous strength and patience. Capricorn, ruled by Saturn, is a planet of discipline, perseverance, restrictions, and compassion. Saturn can bring unexpected skills back to life provided that you clean up karmas from the past. These would be skills that you worked on in past lives.

Capricorn is a sign of manifestation, i.e. bringing our internal goals into concrete form in the world. It includes energies of working hard and following a set course. This hardworking nature can help you to become mentally strong and spiritually detached.

Capricorn is the natural 10th house of career and life purpose. This is the realm of life where we develop a profession and seek authority, status and good reputation. Through working in a career, we fulfill our life purpose, which is also called dharma.

Sun’s Travels through Birthstars within Capricorn

Uttara Ashada Star January 10th – 22
A star symbolized by an elephant’s tusk, which relates to the obstacle-removing god Ganesha. It can grant you an unchallengeable victory. Gives you the ability to align with the higher forces of good. Taking responsibility is important.

Shravana January 23 – February 4th
Symbolized by an ear, Shravana is a star of listening and communication. It can help you acquire knowledge as well as being persevering and goal-oriented. Listen to your higher voice.

Dhanishta February 4th and beyond
Symbolized by a drum, Dhanishta is a star of wealth and manifestation. Relates to impeccable timing, rhythm, musical ability, and fame. Make sure you are tuning into wholesome influences.

Favorable Activities

  • Clean out your closets and discard old thing from the past that no longer support your current goals and vision.
  • Let go of a bad habit.
  • The energy will help you realize goals. Make sure to write down your goals and/or create a vision board. Be hardworking as you start new ventures in your personal and professional life. Promote yourself; perhaps change jobs or ask for a raise. Take pride in doing a good job. Keep your ego in check – be patient with others and make sure to share the credit with them. Avoid clashing with people in authority.
  • You may become aware of any past life powers, abilities, and/or karmas. Take advantage of your unique strengths and abilities. We have all come here with different gifts to share with the world. If karmas do come up, make sure to do karma-busting rituals to dissolve them on Pradosham days (like tomorrow, Monday, January 9th continuing through Tuesday January 10th). Read more about Pradosham and Siva’s Birthday here.
  • Participate in ceremonies to celebrate the descent of performer god Karuppasamy on the Vedic Winter Solstice. Learn more here.

Happy New Year 2017!

jtr46yxquzobd1gkei-he-pt2zkxtkfygnkstxsqfqnxywt1aqvc-yh9o64fn5cc8dvxws190

Namaste and Happy New Year 2017!  On New Year’s Day Dr. Pillai visted a power spot at a temple in India that influences all the Suns in the all the Galaxies!  This will assist us and the whole human race to advance on our spiritual path.  We just need to keep doing our practices, chanting, meditating, putting our attention on the nostrils, watching the breath.  We imagine a beam of golden light beaming from Dr. Pillai’s third eye into our third eye.  We are trying to get to the subtle body.  If we get distracted, just bring the attention back, again and again, if need be!

Sucharita recommends that we all get the Create 2017 As You Want Program offered on both Pillai Center and AstroVed. Dr. Pillai is committed to helping as many people as possible create their dream life in 2017. He has designed an exclusive astrology report that exactly identifies your “Karmic Life” issues you are likely to experience in 2017.

These things are going to give us a road map for the upcoming year.  We need to know where the detours are and where the freeways bypass our karmic crashes!  Let’s bring our attention to our soul’s path and set our course now for our future!  Dr. Pillai  says that “Waiting is a waste of time!”  Let’s do do it!  Write your goals down!  Be creative…make a Vision Board by cutting out pictures of things that you want, put sticky notes on your computer screen frame, do something that will constantly remind you of what you want.  By keeping our goals constantly in the forefront our consciousness, this will speed up our manifestations!  And remember these things with desire and emotion!

Important Upcoming Events This Week: Check the Pillai Center and the AstroVed Event Calendars for other upcoming events.

6th Waxing Moon-Muruga’s Power Time
Tuesday, January 3rd
The 6th Waxing Moon (called Shasti in Sanskrit) is the most appropriate time to win the battle against negativity and evil eyes. This is a peak day for absorbing the energies of Lord Muruga (a divine warrior/healer) and the planet Mars. Muruga specializes in solving problems such as credit card debt, legal issues, health problems, etc. Call on Muruga by chanting Om SaRaVaNaBaVa on this day and by pouring milk/juice/water over a vel.

11th Waxing Moon-Vaikunta Ekadasi
Saturday, January 7th @ 9:23 pm EST – Sunday, January 8th @6:33 pm
 Dr. Pillai says “If you need dramatic results in your material wealth, you will have to go to Vishnu. He is the God of Wealth and Material Prosperity. Vishnu readily gives boons to people who come to him.” This Vaikunta Ekadasi is very rare and unique as this falls when the planets Mercury and Jupiter has exchanged their strong signs, forming an auspicious yoga (Parivarthana Yoga), which occurs once in 12 years.This exchange between Mula Trikona signs is considered stronger than the exalted position in Vedic Astrology- it is an optimal day for spiritual awakening and money miracles.
