Happy Mothers Day & Akshaya Tritiya!

Happy Mother’s Day! This is the time of the Goddess – a day for nurturing and love! It is so important to get connected with the Mother. No matter what our relationship with our mother is or has been, we need to connect with the mother on a soul level. The Mother is the one who brought us into this world and Dr. Pillai has said to get the blessings of the Mother is greater than even the blessings of God. If we don’t have a good relationship with our moms, this is the time to heal. If our mothers have passed on, then we can perform a great Tarpanam ritual for her. Read more here. Today is also Akshaya Tritiya, a special third waxing moon associated with Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth. This is the day to get non-declining wealth. They say that any good deed or donation that is done today is multiplied by a thousand! This is also a good day to buy gold. Gold is the divine currency which is utilized in the upper realms. Sucharita tells us to continue to worship Lakshmi daily. Tomorrow Jupiter will be going direct in Leo. This means Jupiter will again be moving forward in the heavens, and will give us the direction to get what it is that we want to manifest. This will help us to get focused in our meditation and give us direction on our spiritual path. Yesterday Dr. Pillai broadcast a FREE brain training called “Your Brain Determines Your Money” Watch the video. Dr. Pillai teaches us to access the part of our brain...

Health Happens in the NOW

Health Happens in the NOW

Dr. Pillai describes how staying in the “Now” benefits not just the mind, but is the key to physical and relationship health. Nowizing Relationship Relationship is everything, whether it is spousal relationship, or relationship with your friends, relatives, or co-workers. It’s the important thing in human life. It is what makes life enjoyable because we are social animals and relationship is very key for a human being. Now, relationship has become the biggest problem. It’s all because of ego. Ego is really the number one culprit. When you replace ego with love, all relationship will be transformed, and you’ll be in a state of total bliss. We live in the past, present, and future, and that identity creates a lot of problems. Somebody said something bad about you, and you have some bad thought about another person. You will hold onto that, whether it is a spousal relationship or a relationship between co-workers. Time has a kind of freezing effect on you. You become frozen in time, and that is not “Now”. He or she did something against you in the past, and this person is now coming to you to apologize. But as soon as you see that person, you are not in the “Now”. You are not able to welcome that person. The past kicks in: this person insulted me. You become so guarded, and the other person has no way to break through your mental block that you yourself have created. So, if you have somehow managed to live the relationship based on the principle of ‘Now’, the relationship will be transformed. Nowizing the Body The...
Mind the Moon Phases to Ensure Success

Mind the Moon Phases to Ensure Success

The Full Moon brings intense emotions, mood swings, and experiences. Dr. Pillai describes the phenomenon from the Yogic perspective and how to make it work for you…   “Why is the Moon so important in our life? Moon is the mind principle. When the Moon becomes weak in anybody’s horoscope, that person’s life is not going to shine because everything depends on your brain power. And the Moon represents your brain. Not only the Yogis but also every ancient tradition knew about the relations between the mind principle and the Moon. ‘Lunacy’ for instance comes from the observations that the Greeks had about the impact of the Moon on your brain. The moon directly effects on your brain. Who gets to be successful in life is the person who is very bright, whose brain is able to process very differently from other people’s brains. That’s why the Moon is very important. If you are poor, don’t blame it on somebody else, blame it on your brain. The brain is not working right; the brain is negating you. Why is the brain negating you? It is because of the Moon. That is the explanation that comes from the Yogis. Scientists would say: ‘That person would not able to comprehend things; memory is poor and reaction times are poor; understanding ability is poor; the attention span is poor. All these are modern findings, but the Yogis say: ‘The Moon is weak.’ If you want to succeed in life, you have to understand the Moon and how it influences your mind, your brain. And if you can take care of that then...
Get on Ganesha’s Fast Track

Get on Ganesha’s Fast Track

In anticipation of Ganesha’s birthday, Dr. Pillai continues to share lesser known aspects of one of the world’s most beloved and useful Divine Archetypes…   “One of the important characteristics associated with Ganesha is his ability to do things instantaneously. That’s what we want to do, especially living in the contemporary 21st century. We want everything fast… fast computer, fast travel, fast email. Everything fast. Ganesha is the fastest. If you want to know the technology of doing things very fast, faster than what Science can imagine, you have to go to Ganesha. I’ll tell you the story of Ganesha and how he came to write (be the scribe) for the Mahabharata. The Mahabharata was dictated by Vyasa and Ganesha was the scribe. The condition was that Vyasa had to be fast enough because Ganesha would go at a tremendous speed. What this implies is he is very, very fast. If you know the Mahabharata, you’ll understand the text is very complex. Only a person like Ganesha could put it down in writing, and He has to be very fast. So that story signifies how fast Ganesha is. There is another episode in which Ganesha’s ability to do things fast comes up. Once Siva gave a mango fruit. The fruit was given to him by Narada, the celestial wandering saint. It was a special mango fruit, and Siva decided to give it to one person. Between the two of his sons, Muruga (Subramanya) and Ganesha, Ganesha was the oldest. Siva said: ’Look, any one of you who goes around this Universe and then comes to me fast, will receive...
