Sucharita welcomed us on the AstroVed and Pillai Center Powertime Practice call by reminding us all why we are here together.  We are here to learn about the powerful energy times of the days, weeks and months that are available for us to take advantage of.  Right now we are in the midst of Mahalaya Paksha, which is a two week period to honor the ancestors.

Who are our ancestors?  These are people who have passed from this life and who share our DNA, physical and spiritual.  We inherit the biological traits from our parents but we also inherit their karma and thoughts.  During this two week period we will experience 15 moons.  Sucharita invites us to look at the last several days. Have there been accidents?  Have there been illnesses? Family dramas? If our ancestors are unhappy, restless or angry, they can bother us.  They want us to appease, feed and propitiate them.  This is why we perform tarpanam rituals for them on a daily basis, as well as during this two week period.

Sucharita demonstrated how to perform the tarpanam ritual. The ingredients that we need for the ritual are white rice flour, black sesame seeds and a coin.  If you can find Dharba Grass (Desmostachya bipinnata), you can add a blade of this (You can find Dharba grass by searching on the internet).  Place the rice flour with black sesame seeds on top of a coin in the palm of your hand.  Add a few drops of water on top of this mixture and offer it to your ancestors.  It is not necessary to name them by name, but just offer the tarpanam to 6 generations of passed ancestors.  As you continue to do this for years, you can add more and more generations to the list of ancestors.  Ask them to accept this offering and then cross over to higher realms and not to forget to bless you when they get there.  Watch a video on how to perform tarpanam.

Power Times

“There is a gift-giving time from the ancestors to their descendants living on this earth plane. The ancestors who passed from the earth and living in another plane are invoked to give abundant blessings. This 2-week period is very critical for you, for everyone. Even the enlightened yogis and rishis wait for this time, which comes only once a year, to get blessings from their own ancestors.”  Dr. Pillai. Learn more.
