Welcome the Goddesses!

The Goddess energy needs to be woken up inside of all of us, men and women. This is a time to clean up everything in our lives! Clean your office, bedroom, workspace, (every place, including our minds!) because clutter causes blockages.  All those old things that we have held onto for years and decades have memories (karma) attached to them so this is the time to get rid of them.  Don’t continually go through your garbage, examining it…Just take it out to the curb and let it go!  The Goddess energy is the energy that is caring and wants to create comfort and abundance in our lives. This is the motherly unconditional love that we all desire. The first three nights are for Durga (energy and power), 2nd three nights are for Lakshmi (abundance) and the 3rd three nights are for Saraswati (wisdom).  Sucharita talked five things that encompass our lives-Time, Energy, Money, Karma and Thought. We need to get control of those things and then we will finally have control of our lives.  We do this by doing our spiritual practices faithfully each day and then we will be bathed in our own Divinity. Important Upcoming Events: Navaratri or Nine Nights of the Goddess – Oct 1– 9, 2016 Dr. Pillai has designated 10 different Goddesses (in addition to Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati) to propitiate during this event-one for each day.  Today, Sunday Oct. 2, is the 2nd night of Navaratri.  The 2nd Goddess is Tara – ‘Tara’ in Sanskrit means ‘to Transcend’. Goddess Tara is the deliverer and savior to take us through any difficult situation. This...
