Happy Easter!

resizedshutterstock_70639216

Happy Easter, Happy Vedic New Year and Happy Transit of Sun into Aries! The sun represents our soul and the sun in Aries is making us to hit the ground running.  We should be diving into our lives with our whole body, heart and soul.  Sucharita told us that today is Easter and this is the day that we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  This is a “moving” celebration depending on the placement of the sun in the skies.  Christ is all about the Sacred Heart.  The heart has its own ability to speak to us and Sucharita tells us that we need to listen to our heart and let the unconditional love flow through it.  As we are accessing the heart intelligence, releasing that which needs to be released, we can access the Truth and the Truth is the way to the Divine. 

Sucharita mentioned an article she read in a spiritual health magazine this week.  It talked about the difference between religion, spirituality and faith. It talks about how your religion is a set of beliefs passed down to you through the church, but spirituality is what you create with your own relationship with the Divine.  To reach spirituality, first let go of your old beliefs, affirm your commitments, and then begin your meditation practice.  This is your time to be with the Beloved. The author of the article says that when she hears people say they don’t have time for meditation, it is like hearing a mother say that she doesn’t have time to feed her baby! Spend time with the Divine!  Listen to the SWS call for the whole citation that she quoted.

Sucharita tells us that Dr. Pillai acknowledges all religions and he is committed to waking up and evolving the whole human race.  He teaches that we can’t delay anymore our search for the Divine.  This is the dawning of a new age- The Golden Age.  Humans have evolved to this point in time and there are many people on the planet who have the awareness of what is happening on this earth plane.  We have been through it all over the epochs and now we are leaving the Kali Yuga, or the epoch of suffering.  There will be a lot of turmoil and destruction in this transition, but then we will fully experience the Golden Age.  Dr. Pillai wants us all to prepare our brains so we can be a part of the Golden Age.  If we just have the faith of a mustard seed, we can move mountains.  If we have the faith of a Boson sub-atomic particle, we can do anything!  The rational brain is destroying our ability to manifest and do miracles!  We must get out of our rational mind, fall into our Sacred Hearts and surrender to the Divine.  This is the path to enlightenment! With God, everything is possible! 

This day is a sacred time where we can remove obstacles.  We are entering a 6th moon and this is a time to bring in Lord Muruga’s consciousness.  Lord Muruga helps us to destroy negativity-debts, enemies, anything negative that is harmful. The only thing that matters is your faith and that will move mountains.  We have this faith so we can create miracles.  Muruga is the brother of Ganesha and together they are setting up the energy for a year of success. (She reminds us to get an AstroVed calendar or Hora Watch app so we can know what the time energies or shaktis are).  She wants us to write down a list of all that we want to manifest this year-health, finance, relationship.  When you write something down, this means you are more committed do it.  Then get into the mid-brain and get connected with the Divine.  The pineal gland is in the mid-brain and this is the location of the Third eye and this is the path to enlightenment.  This is how you are going to develop Faith and manifest miracles.  Listen to your heart (your Sacred Heart). Tune into your beating heart. Then be still and know that you are God.  Let’s keep our eyes on the prize!

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

Sunday, April 16th  @ 12:45 PM EST
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.

Tuesday, April 18th @ 5:07 PM EST
8th Moon – Timeline Jumping
Dr. Pillai says “The 8th Moon indicates a state of mind in which intelligence, logic, intuition, and emotion are well-balanced. It is the time to turn inward and seek the mysterious powers. 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. Learn more.

Thursday, April 20th @ 7:00PM IST (India Time)
Nataraja Abishekam-Hydration Ceremony for Dancing Shiva
Lord Shiva’s birthday is the important time of the year for re-creating yourself. The divine dance of Nataraja in the golden hall of consciousness is referred to as ‘Ananda Tandava’, the Cosmic Dance of Bliss. Six times a year, the energy of Nataraja becomes active on the Earth plane. Early winter, late winter, early summer, high summer, during the rainy and autumn seasons (six seasons) which coincides with the dawn, morning, noon, afternoon, evening and night times in heaven. It is important to perform Nataraja Abishekam on these auspicious days to honor and invite this transformational energy of Shiva into our lives. Learn more here.

Friday, April 21 @ 7:24 PM EST
11th Moon – Ekadasi
Along with Lakshmi, Vishnu brings a life of prosperity, limitless abundance and spiritual growth. On the 11th Moon, the energies of Vishnu that can create prosperity and wealth are at its peak. Honor Vishnu on this day.  Vishnu is in charge of heaven. Perform the tarpanam for departed ancestors this day.   Chant Om Namo Narayanaya.

Other events to watch out for are a Pradosham next Sunday and Akshaya Tritiya on April 28/29.  This is a time of incredible wealth. Learn more.

Enjoy this week’s Meditation Audio.
In our meditation, we accessed our heart.  We called on Ganesha to remove all obstacles to this meditation.  We released all survival anxiety-this is a waste of energy.   We brought the kundalini energy (life force) up our shushumna to the space above. 

Enjoy this week’s Discussion Audio.   Sucharita talked about what Abishekam (hydration) is and how it works.  She talked about why we have pets in our lives.  They are examples of unconditional love and act as our guardian angels. She talked about karma, suffering and how we can release it!  Dr. Pillai says we HAVE to do something about our karma EVERY DAY! We have been given tools to do this!  Roll lemons and limes and smash coconuts.  Send Ganesha out to remove the obstacles in our lives.

Sun Enters Aries = Year of Success

shutterstock_128265959

On April 13, 2017 at 4:30 pm EDT the Sun transits into the first house of the zodiac, Aries, and becomes exalted. Sun will be in Aries for one month.

This transit brings in a new energy for the entire year, and is celebrated as the Vedic New Year. It is the Year of Success. Dr Pillai said, “I want the world to be reborn on this day.” He has put out YouTube videos on the Vedic New Year including a Sun and Moon Meditation. He will be giving a special webcast, which is available through the Miracle School Program.

Exalted Sun this month gives you opportunities to strengthen your health and advance in your endeavors. The Sun is your soul, your vitality, royalty consciousness, and symbolizes your father.

Aries is the most action-oriented of all the signs. It is called Mesha in Sanskrit. Aries is a fiery, movable sign symbolized by a ram. A ram is an agile, adventurous animal that can climb up mountain slopes that look impossibly steep. Rams can butt heads with others.

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, which relates to yourself, identity, and physical body. It is ruled by Mars, a planet of action, problem-solving, and courage. Exalted Sun will energize your goals and help you to take action to achieve them.

Venus is exalted in Pisces until May 30th, blessing you with Goddess energy for manifesting prosperity and anything beautiful that you love.

Get Highest Intelligence
Dr Pillai recommends meditating on the Sun God in order to get highest intelligence.

Chant the Gayathri Mantra:
Om Bhur Bhuvah Swaha

Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi
Dhiyo Yonah Prachodayat

OM (OM) – We meditate (DHEEMAHI) upon the Spiritual Effulgence (BHARGO) of THAT Adorable Supreme Divine Reality (VARENYAM DEVASYA), the Source (SAVITUR). May THAT (TAT) Supreme Divine Being enlighten (PRACHODAYAT) our (NAH) Intellect (DHIYO), so that we may realize the Supreme Truth.

Listen to Dr. Pillai chant the Gayathri Mantra here.

Short mantra for the Sun: Om Suryaya Namaha (Sun mantras are most powerful on Sundays and any day during Sun horas, sunrise & sunset)

Listen to Dr Pillai’s Sun and Moon Meditation.

Participate in Dr Pillai’s Vedic New Year Webcast.

This Month, the Sun will Travel through these Nakshatras:

Ashwini (April 13 – 26) is a star of healing and quickness. Symbol is a horse’s head – horses are swift, sensitive, and alert. Spontaneous. Very good at initiating projects. Associated with Ganesha, who we always should call on at the beginning of any project.

Bharani (April 27 – May 10) is a star of transformation. It contains the Divine Feminine energy that can create anything. Gives the ability to manifest ideas into physical reality; birthing something into the world. Bharani encompasses extremes. Helps you experience creativity and manifesting.

Krittika (May 11 – May 24) is a star of truth and purification. The purification often happens through cutting and burning. Symbolized by an axe or razor. Associated with Lord Muruga and the Pleiades. Krittika has a piercing quality. Can be critical – doesn’t want to tolerate imperfections that get in the way of goals.
