Enjoy this week’s audio replay on Soundcloud – go to Pillai Center and choose the Powertime Practice Playlist.

Good Saturday morning fellow spiritual travelers! Sucharita welcomed us to the Powertime Practice call on January 25, 2020. We have now started a new year and we have hit the ground running! Time is precious and we are here to learn how use the power and energy behind time. Last week we learned that Saturn has just transited into Capricorn, his own sign, for three years. This is the natural 10th house, the house of career and work.

Sucharita invites us to pay attention to time. There is an app called Hora Watch that tells us what planet is controlling any hour of the day. You can get this app on the Apple or Google App Store.

The sun’s birthday is coming up on January 31. This is called Ratha Saptami. Chant Om Suryaya Namaha for the sun. The sun’s birthday coincides with the birthday of Dr. Pillai this year. Dr. Pillai is our spiritual guide and a satguru (a fully enlightened master). We have been attracted to him because in our souls, we have known that we have been with him many lifetimes! Chant the Gayatri mantra for the sun:

Om Bhur Bhuvah Swaha

Tat Savitur Varenyam

Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi

Dhiyoyona Prachodayat






Learn about the significance of the Gayatri mantra here and here.

Sucharita shared a few of the times that we should pay attention to this week: tomorrow is Sunday and Ganesha’s energy is celebrated on Sundays, the 4th moon and the 14th moon. Tuesday is ruled by Ganesha’s brother, Lord Muruga, a spiritual warrior who carries a weapon called “vel” (a spear) and is the god of the third eye. Thursday is the 6th moon and is also associated with Muruga. Muruga can help us get rid of debt and diseases. He opens up the second chakra and this will help to birth that which we wish to manifest in this life. This is where our intuition is located. We must learn to move the kundalini up from this chakra to our third eye for self-realization!

Sucharita shows us a few yantras for the energies of the Gods that she has mentioned. A yantra is a metal plate with the symbols etched on that represent certain Gods and Goddesses. Learn more here about yantras: She showed us a special yantra with many Gods represented.

A mantra for miracle consciousness is the Miracle Mantra:

Om Ellam Valla Madurai Siddhaya

Soma Sundara Rajati Rajaya



Baba Sri Sivaya Swaha

Read about this mantra here.

We also chanted the Moola Mantra during our meditation:

Om Aim Hreem Sarva Lokaya Adityaya Siva Satguru Babaya Swaha

Sucharita is going to be going to India for Dr. Pillai’s birthday trip. If you are not able to attend Dr. Pillai’s birthday in person, there is still a way to benefit from Dr. Pillai’s birthday by signing up for a proxy package. Join Dr. Pillai virtually for live darshan and teachings during his 71st birthday powertime. Dr. Pillai will be transmitting from the sacred sin-dissolving vortex, Rameshwaram, where he was born and spent the first eighteen years of his life. We intend to stream him live via webcast as well as making call-only options available. All content, including recordings, transcripts, and supplementary teachings will be housed and accessible for life on the Pillai Center Academy. Sign up here.

Ganesha is especially very powerful and present on the 4th and 14th moon phases. Call on him to remove your obstacles by chanting his mantra, Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha. Roll and break a coconut or lime(s) to remove obstacles and karma.


Wednesday Jan 30, 02:49 AM ET

The 6th Moon (called Shashti 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 Saravana Bhava on this day and by pouring milk/juice/water over a vel.

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. Udyamo Bhairava is a mantra for Timeline Jumping.

The birthday of the Sun God, Surya, is a powerful day to revitalize your life force. In Vedic astrology, Sun is supreme as the king of all planets. Since the Sun represents your soul, he is known as Atmakaraka, the soul planet. On this day, the Sun God turns his ratha (chariot), drawn by seven horses, from the southeast to the northeast direction. This northward movement of the Sun fills the earth plane with life- replenishing energy that can give you good health, clear vision, authority, and boost intelligence and creativity. Learn more
