Good Saturday morning and Happy Vedic New Year to all our fellow spiritual travelers on this April 14, 2018!  Sucharita welcomed us, new or experienced listeners, by reminding us why we come together each Saturday on these Powertime Practice (PTP) calls.  We are here to navigate the teachings of an enlightened master, Dr. Pillai to further the journey of our souls on this earth plane, as well as amplify our spiritual practices and hold the space for each one of us.  The key to Dr. Pillai’s teaching are to understanding the energies of the hours, days, months and years that are available to us.  If we know what’s ahead of time, we can avoid pitfalls and take advantage of good time.  She tells us that the Sun has left Pisces, the last house in the zodiac, and into Aries, the first and fiery house of the zodiac.  We are starting something fresh on this Vedic New Year.  We have planted the seed of our spiritual endeavors and now it is going to sprout.  This is a time to turn over a new leaf, get outside and start moving. 

Sucharita explains how to participate in a puja or ceremony, by closing the eyes and concentrating on the third eye.  Have a “beginners” mind and just feel open to the ceremony.  She started the puja by asking Ganesha to remove the obstacles , then by asking Dr. Pillai, our spiritual master, to guide us on our journey.  There was a picture of the sun God sitting on 7 horses which represents the chakras, and a yantra with a sun on it, a Shiva lingam for Lord Shiva, and a crystal sun and a statue for Gayatri, the sun goddess.  We invoked the sun goddess with the Gayatri mantra:


Bhur Bhuvah Svah

Tat Savitur Varenyam

Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi

Dhiyo Yo Nah Prachodayat

And then we chanted Arut perum jyoti for peace and enlightenment for the whole world:

Arut perum jyoti

Arut perum jyoti

Tani perum karune

Arut perum jyoti

Sucharita told us that she will be facilitating a program Sunday 3 PM Pillai Center Academy Program  called “Awaken With the Sun”. One listener said that she has been taking the program for a week now and it is enhancing all her spiritual practices.  She told a great story about her horses.  She highly recommended taking the course with Sucharita!  Sucharita mentions a CD offered on Pillai Center called “Dancing with Siva” which has many of the mantras in Dr. Pillai’s own voice.  It is found here.

    Each New Moon is a great opportunity to get a clean slate and evolve spiritually. Your meditations on this day/night will be particularly powerful. During the New Moon you can connect with your ancestors by offering tarpanam, which opens energy blocks, and helps you invoke the energies of your ancestors in your life for a healthy, wealthy and negativity-free life. Offer tarpanam to your ancestors. Learn more.

    Akshaya Tritiya is a 24-hour power time that holds the secret for acquiring ever-increasing wealth. This once a year special day on 3rd waxing moon fills the world with royal energy and material abundance. Dr. Pillai has said “Akshaya Tritiya is a very important day to develop wealth consciousness. Celebrate the prosperity energy that is coming to us because of the positioning of the Sun and the Moon on this day…the phase of the Moon is Tritiya, which is the third Moon. If you miss this day, you will have to wait for one more year.” Learn more.

    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 Gum Ganapataye Namaha. Roll and break a coconut or lime(s) to remove obstacles and karma. Learn more about the 4th moon.


    Friday Apr 20, 08:15 AM ET

    The 6th Waxing Moon (called Shasti 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 SaRaVaNaBaVaon this day and by pouring milk/juice/water over a vel.
