The Truth Shall Set you Free!

The Truth Shall Set you Free!

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...

Jupiter’s Big Move

This Thursday, August 11, Jupiter will make his big move into Virgo, where he will be for the next year (learn more here). Saturn has been retrograde for a few months and will be going direct on August 13th. Knowing what energies are coming will help us understand what is happening to us and what we can do to avoid pitfalls as well as use the beneficial energies.  Sucharita mentioned that Dr. Pillai has been talking about his new year-long program coming up called “THE MYSTERY SCHOOL”. Sucharita explains that when we put ourselves into a longer program like this Mystery School, or the others offered from Dr. Pillai, and when we make the commitment to do the practices, we will see ourselves evolving spiritually.  Sucharita invites us to start calling on Ganesha before we even get out of the bed! Use any of the techniques that you know to propitiate Ganesha, even if it’s just saying “Gum Gum Gum”.  He will show you a sign or indicator of what your next step should be. Ganesha’s Birthday (Ganesha Chaturthi) is coming up in September 4th. Pay attention to the signs you are getting all the time from Ganesha and other archetypes and Divine Beings that reside within us.  When we take one step toward the Divine, the Divine takes a thousand towards us!  If fear or negativity comes up, you know that you must “bust some karma” by rolling limes or breaking coconuts. Here’s how. Watch Dr. Pillai explains more about how Karma Busting works. Here are some important upcoming dates/events: Monday Aug 8 The Sixth Waxing Moon is...

Happy Independence Day!

This week started out with a New Moon – the power time to propitiate the ancestors – so let’s not forget do to our “Tarpanam” rituals. Learn how. We are connected to our ancestors through our DNA and our “soul DNA” and they affect our progress on this earth plane.  She mentioned a one-year program that AstroVed offers that could be very helpful not only to ourselves to our descendants (children, nieces, nephews).  It is offered here. The New Moon is also the beginning of the waxing phases of the moon and so this is a time to imagine what we want to manifest in our lives.  Sucharita urges us strongly to create a “Vision Board” where we can be reminded constantly of what we want in our lives.  Dr. Pillai wants us all to have the abundance that is our birthright.  If we have abundance, we will have more time to focus on our spiritual pursuits. Sucharita announced that Dr. Pillai is starting another series of short videos on removing karma.  Participate LIVE daily at 2:00 p.m. EDT or watch the videos later on Pillai Center’s Facebook Page. The videos are just a couple of minutes long and you can easily fit them into your schedule. Here are some important upcoming dates/event: This week, 9 Nights of Goddess Varahi start, followed by Bhagavati Seva Goddess worship. Learn more. Saturday, July 9th The Pillai Center is offering a Dancing Shiva Interactive Fire Lab.  The Dancing Shiva is a deeply revered form of God that gives enlightenment. It was the Dancing Shiva who gave the light body mantra “Arut Perum...

Sun Enters Capricorn

This month, the Sun is transiting through Capricorn, making it a great time to focus on your career and life purpose. Sun’s entrance into Capricorn 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. This month is going a good time to reassess what you are doing and change course if needed. Let go of bad habits and old ways of being. Empower your goals by writing them and/or creating a vision board. Enjoy Nambu Herb’s tips on Goal-Setting. 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. Capricorn 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. You may become aware of any past life powers, abilities, and/or karmas. Take advantage of your...
