“Hayagriva is the horse-faced god of intelligence. He is considered an avatar of Vishnu. He is the god of consciousness. He’s the God of intelligence. He can bring you miracles. Hayagriva represents the restorer, the one who restores wisdom from the clutches of ignorance. We are going to celebrate his birthday. The celebration of the birthdays of the avatars is very important.” ~ Dr. Pillai
The upcoming Full Moon on August 14 is the Goddess Full Moon, which brings the Divine Mother’s energy to the Earth plane. It is also when we celebrate the birthday of Hayagriva, the horse-headed incarnation of Vishnu, the Archetype of Wealth.
Dr. Pillai teaches that a powertime for a birth of a God or Goddess is a time for birthing that God’s or Goddess’s energy within yourself.
Hayagriva Activates Your Brain & Intellect
Hayagriva is believed to activate the logical and analytical aspects of the mind. Teachers and students alike invoke him to enhance their teaching and learning skills.
Dr. Pillai explains the significance of Vishnu’s horse incarnation:
“All our problems are due to the brain not functioning properly. If we can get the brain under control, then everybody becomes intelligent. Everyone becomes compassionate, and we can find a solution for the problems of the world through the horse archetype of Vishnu. What is he going to do? The archetype will go and completely overpower your soul, your intellect, and your whole being. The archetype will change you. What does that mean? It means the descent of the archetype into the consciousness of the world.”
Multiple Prayer Services for the Double Powertime
Pillai Center offers opportunities for group activities on Full Moon powertimes because praying and chanting in groups is said to multiply your manifesting efforts.
We will celebrate the Full Moon with both an eastern and a western Fire Lab. We will celebrate Hayagriva’s birthday with a lot of powerful eastern and western offerings, including the western Shreem Brzee Fire Lab, which will be devoted to both Wealth Goddess Lakshmi and Hayagriva.
