Namaste  fellow spiritual travelers! 

Today is a 4th waning moon, when Ganesha is very powerful and present. He can remove your obstacles. Sucharita is on Dr Pilla’s Birthday Trip in India, but she left us a Ganesha meditation to do today.

How to do Coconut Breaking Ritual to Remove Karma” is a video where Dr. Pillai leads you through the technique. Roll the coconut (or lemon/lime) on your head, throat, shoulders, chest, and on any part of the body that needs healing. Then smash it, saying, “In the name of Ganesha, I break this coconut!” 

If you want to jump on a program to help you cultivate Ganesha consciousness, here are a few choices:

The Sun is currently in Capricorn till Feb 12, so you might find that the sun is revealing to you some ancient past life karmas…and maybe your abilities developed in ancient past lives.

On Feb 12 when sun transits in Aquarius this will be a Vishnupati – power day for manifesting wealth.  Chant Om Namo Narayanaya  and Shreem Brzee  on this day.  With Sun, Venus, Mercury, and Ketu in Aquarius, it will be a good time to explore new opportunities to get involved in humanitarian efforts, spend time with people, and develop new streams of income.

It’s always a great time to donate to Tripura Foundation. This is such an easy way to dissolve karma.

Tuesday, February 13, is the Great Night of Shiva or Maha Shivaratri.  Chant Om Na Ma Shi Va Ya.  Dr. Pillai says that if you meditate this night, it is equal to 1,000,000 years of meditating!  Next week Sucharita will give us tips on how to make the most of Maha Shivaratri.
