Namaste! Sucharita welcomed us to the party by reviewing why we are all here together on this call on Saturdays. She is here to share all the latest and greatest teachings from Dr. Pillai.  We are here on Saturdays to propitiate Lord Saturn, the ruler of Saturday.  Saturn will cause delays! She told the story of someone she spoke with recently who had many concerns about their progress in the world, spiritually and materially.  Aren’t we all in the same boat?!  We wonder why this is happening if we are doing our spiritual practices and we think we are doing what Dr. Pillai is teaching us. We must really look deeper at what we are doing.  We may be doing the outer practices, but are we altering our thinking patterns?  How are we reacting to people and occurrences that are negative?  Are we just falling back into our same old reactions?  We must interrupt our thinking patterns!  These thinking patterns are coming to us from our karma. 

Dr. Pillai is giving us the tools and techniques to interrupt and change our karma. Karma is our thoughts, from this lifetime and all past lifetimes.   When we find ourselves falling into the negative patterns (constantly!), we must find a way to turn it around (constantly!)  We are creating our own reality, so start thinking positively.  Laugh at the drama that comes to us!  When we feel that we want to quit our job or relationship, remember that wherever we go, there we are!  Better to take care of what is causing us problems here and now, instead of running on to the next situation (where the same things will be happening!)  The soul wants to learn certain lessons and that’s why we put ourselves into the situations that are challenging.  Release congested energies that are blocking our paths by using the techniques that Dr. Pillai is giving us. 

We are on a waning cycle of the moon now, we this is a time to go inward.  When we reach the new moon, this is the time to reach out to the ancestors.  We share our DNA with our ancestors, physical DNA and spiritual DNA, so we are affected by them physically and spiritually!  Any ancestor can be affecting us- aunt uncle, grandparents, mom, dad, niece, nephew-and their thoughts (karma) become our thoughts (karma)!  So whatever was bothering them when they were on the earth plane, can manifest by bothering us.  We can help them out by offering them tarpanam, an offering of rice flour with black sesame seeds, a coin and water. Hold this in your right hand and say “I am offering you this tarpanam to help heal your wounds.  Please bless me and my loved ones.”  We can do this everyday, from sunrise to sunset (not after sunset).  Learn about how to do this here.

Also we can do the things that Dr. Pillai has taught to bust our karma.  We can roll limes and lemons on our throats and shoulders while chanting “Thiru neela kantam” at least nine times, but 27 times is better.  Read about the meaning of Thiru neela kantam here. Another things that Dr. Pillai has taught us is to eat a slice of raw ginger dipped in honey.  Sucharita showed us how to do this.

Another technique that Dr. Pillai gives us is to take a Shiva lingum and pour water over it while chanting “Om Namasivaya” or “Thiru Neela Kantam”.  She also showed us how to roll a coconut around on our heads and throats to take our karma away.  The Sun is going to entering Pisces next week, so it is going to feel like we are swimming in a field of consciousness.  This is an especially good time to do the above practices!  Creativity will bring in spiritual energy, so look for ways to be creative when the sun enters Pisces.

Meditation is another method to change our thinking and karma.  We calm the mind and stop the chatter and give our Higher Self a chance to guide us.  During this waning cycle, go inside to find the light!  Propitiate Lord Hanuman to bring in the highest self-esteem!  Hanuman is the monkey god who is the overlord of Saturn, the ruler of today, Saturday!  Read the stories of Hanuman here and here. Hanuman helped Lord Rama get his wife back, kill a demon and get his kingdom back.
