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...

Shaking Up the Snow Globe

Christmas and the New Year are fast approaching and Sucharita invites us to reflect on our lives up to now and ask “How have we evolved ourselves?”  Each Sunday we should ask ourselves “Who am I and where am I going?”  We should check the Time Shaktis and then dive deep down inside to access the energies available.  This is the way we can take control of our lives and stop this never-ending cycle of action and reaction (karma).  Dr. Pillai often says that the best way to evolve spiritually is to feed a hungry person.  We can easily take care of this by participating in Tripura Foundation donation gift cards.  There are gift cards available that will help us in three ways: 1.) The needy get food, shelter and educations, 2.) the recipient of the gift card gets the karmic benefit of donating to the needy, 3.) You get the double benefit of donating to the needy and introducing your gift card recipient to Tripura Foundation (or any charity you may choose!) Learn more here. Sucharita mentioned that there will be a special homa offered at AstroVed.com on New Years Eve.  AstroVed has created an exclusive 2-Day Grand Ceremony called “START ANEW FOR 2017” to cleanse your karmic debts, which are the root cause for your problems, and invite wealth and health for the New Year. On December 31st, they are featuring the ancient karma-removing Kushmanda homa prescribed in the second oldest Veda, Yajur Veda. On January 1st, the grand finale is a wish-fulfilling wealth homa that invokes Archetype Kamadhenu, the divine feminine holy cow that Dr. Pillai...

Dance! This Week

Sunday was the 4th Moon, the day to worship Ganesha.  Ganesha’s job is to remove all obstacles, seen and unseen, and also he is the overlord of Ketu, the south node of the moon.  Ketu can give us enlightenment, so this day is a great day to connect with Ganesha.  When we make the Divine Beings our friends they are there for us.  Ganesha’s Birthday is coming up in September so we can go and read about it on Astroved. If we can’t afford to do any of the offered rituals, then we can still make our own offerings from home.  Break coconuts and roll limes for Ganesha. On Krishna’s Birthday, August 25th, if we offer 12 tulsi leaves (Holy Basil) to Krishna, he will be so happy!  We can dance to Jai Jai Radha Ramana Hari Bol.  This is a very enlivening chant that brings joy to you and to Krishna when you listen, sing and dance to it!  Remember that your Kingdom is within, so we have to learn what our soul wants to do and listen to our Higher Selves.  How do we know when our soul is talking to us?  The soul’s words will bubble up within us and reveal to us what we need to look at in our lives. And when we combine what the soul wants, with the available energies of the day, we will be propelled forward on our spiritual path and to our manifestations. Here are some important upcoming dates/events: Thursday August 25th is Krishna’s Birthday.  Dr. Pillai says that Krishna is a 200% god and we can pray to...

Reclaiming Your Royalty

This month the Sun will be very strong as he travels through his own house Leo. Sun, the royal planet of energy and activity, signifies your soul. Leo is a sign of leadership and power. Called Simha in Sanskrit, Leo is symbolized by the king of the jungle – the lion. Leo can bring gifts of leadership, ambition, shining brightly and being an example for others. Leo can give you self-confidence, pride, and respect from others. Like a king, you can be charming, serve people, and defeat enemies when necessary. Evolution in Leo can involve confronting your ego and learning to detach from it. Express yourself and get recognition. Be careful not to be too self-centered or dominating. The Sun never takes a day off. Even on a rainy day, the Sun is shining behind the clouds. The Sun’s rays shine on everyone, whether a beggar, a king, an animal, a plant, or a stone. What if you were that steadfast about shining our own light into the world every day? What would that look like in your life? As the natural 5th house of the zodiac, Leo relates to children, creativity, and God. The 5th house gives the impulse to create, whether it is procreation of children or through developing projects or launching a business. Repeating mantras, doing poojas, speculation and intelligence, romance, luck and entrepreneurship are also 5th house matters. Other Planetary Influences Rahu is also transiting Leo. Rahu is a planet of innovative ideas, obsessions, and addictions. Rahu brings in a trickier energy as unpredictable and poisonous events can happen. Venus, planet of the arts, beauty,...

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...
