Sucharita welcomed us to our Power Time Practice (PTP) call this morning, Saturday Jan. 6, 2018 by checking her AstroVed Calendar and mentioning some of the events coming up.  She says that all of us should have one of these calendars!  This calendar lists all the Vedic astrological events for every day of the year.  Dr. Pillai wants us all to make the most out of our time and is a huge proponent of Vedic Astrology.  Using the AstroVed calendar, Sucharita is going to help us follow the path of the sun and the planets and see what energies are available for the day.  She mentions that each month the sun transits another sign of the zodiac and each sign of the zodiac controls certain elements in our existence. 

Today is the 6th moon and that means we can tap into the energy of Lord Muruga.  Muruga rules the 6th moon and since the moon represents the mind, he will help us to get clarity.  His weapon in a vel or spear and we can mentally imprint this weapon into our soul for our protection. Another way to make use of this vel is to cut a little incision into a lime and push the point of the vel into the lime.  This will protect us!  We don’t even have to believe in the ritual, belief will come later!  Just do the rites, remedies and rituals and you will benefit! 

She also says that today is Saturday and this is Saturn’s day.  Saturn likes it when we help others, so it’s a good day to donate to and help those less fortunate.  If you can’t get out to do something charitable, then go to Tripura Foundation website (and make a donation.  Saturn will bless you for this!

Sucharita mentions that another tool that we can take advantage of is the Hora Watch, an app for our smart phones  and also the Panchang on the home page of AstroVed.  These apps tell us where the sun, moon and stars are at any particular time.  We always want to feel the presence of the Divine and by paying attention to the stars, as well as the sun and planets, we can utilize the energies available from these Divine entities. 

Another main focus of Dr. Pillai’s teachings is getting rid of Karma.  What is karma?  Karma is simply our thoughts, thoughts from this life and all the previous lives we have ever lived.  We do not have to be victims of our karma.  Dr. Pillai teaches us how to “bust” our karma.  We can roll limes on our throats while chanting Thiru Neela Kantum

The Vedic Winter Solstice is coming up on January 14 and Thai Amavasya is right behind on January 16, 2018. . Amavasya means “new moon” and this is a good time dive deep inside.  And who is inside?  We have cells, genes and DNA and we have inherited these from our ancestors.  We are attached to our ancestors through our genes, but this is not only physical attributes.  We are affected by their thoughts and karma as well.  If we are aware of where our thoughts come from, then we can begin to control them.  Dr. Pillai says “You don’t simply inherit biological genes you also inherit the souls of your ancestors. If I have to recommend one solution for every one of our problems, be it financial, relationship or health, it is doing Tarpanam (offerings to the ancestors). Miracles do happen after the performance of the rituals. I want you to take advantage of this time.”

On Amavasya we can reach out to our ancestors and they can pour out blessings to us.  We can do this by offering Tarpanam to them.  You can take a mixture of rice flour and black sesame seeds, along with a coin, in your right palm and pour water over the top while offering it to any ancestor who may want or need the offering.  Do this every day, but only do this ritual during the daylight hours.  If you have any negative patterns that run through the generations, such as divorce, miscarriage, disease, etc., this can affect you too.  It seems that you may have no control over this but this is the reason you propitiate the ancestors.  You can break the negative patterns of your ancestors.  The ancestors will bless you and all your relatives!  Learn more.

She says that Dr. Pillai says Karuppaswamy is going to be the next incarnation of Siva. There will be a special event in Jan. that is going to open the heavens and allow Karuppaswamy to come to the earth plane.  Karuppaswamy is a god who acts fast!  There is a special program that is offered through Advisory Services that connects with Karuppaswamy.  If you are interested in this service, email Sucharita with inquiries.  Sucharita@pillaicenter.com or Sucharita@astroVed.com) There is a screening process that happens to see if you are ready for these services.
