  5. Happy Birthday Babaji!


Dr Pillai teaches us it is important for us to pay attention to the energies of the stars and planets. For example, Saturn is just entering Sagittarius. This is going to set a new foundation in our lives. Saturn is here to teach us lessons – he doles out our karma. Saturn has been in Scorpio for the last three years and that was a tumultuous time! Now, this is a new age on earth. In 2012 we entered into the Golden Age, and all the planets are begging to be evolved at this time. This is the time to get a solid spiritual practice established. Patience, persistence, compassion, humility – these are the deep profound attributes that Saturn is going to teach us. At this moment, Saturn is moving into the Moola star. Moola means “root” or beginning, and this is a new beginning for all of us. Moola wants us to look at the gods (our higher selves) and become spiritual beings! We will not have to be so frantic on our path now. We can calm down and focus more clearly on our goals.

This is still a year to connect with Lord Ganesha, the Remover of all Obstacles. He is the energy that pushes open the floodgates of what you have accumulated up to this point. Chant “Gum Gum Gum” to Ganesha while concentrating on the points in the body where he resides-the base of the spine and the pineal gland or location of the Third Eye. Ganesha will help us to trust. Trust is Truth, Trust is Faith, Trust is Grace! We must allow this Grace to permeate our being and allow the Spirit to move us.

To see where we stand, as far as our birth chart and Saturn is concerned, we can get an astrology reading from our SWS astrologer Radha (see bottom of email) or from AstroVed.com or a Saturn Transit Report from AstroVed.com. The last time that Saturn was in Sagittarius was 30 years ago. Can you remember where you were 30 years ago? Look at your thinking pattern from back then. The act of thinking is how things manifest in our lives. Our thoughts manifest our reality! We have to take full responsibility for where we are now. This is the time to operate from our Higher Selves, with tremendous high esteem. Hanuman the Monkey God can help us with that. He is like a Superman, flying through the air. He does the impossible! If over the last 30 years, you have found it impossible to manifest your desires, then this is the time to call on Hanuman. He can influence Saturn and give you the strength and faith to manifest whatever it is that you want.

Sucharita mentioned a special invitational-only reading by Karuppaswamy. He can cut out problems that you don’t even know exist in your life immediately. If you are interested in learning more about this reading, email to Sucharita (address at the end of the email) and inquire about it. She also mentioned that a lot of people want to give Dr. Pillai a gift for his birthday and have asked what he would want. She tells us that Dr. Pillai does not want any gifts, but he would love and bless you if you donate to his charitable foundation, Tripura Foundation.
