When we expose ourselves to peace, what comes up? When we expose ourselves to nature, what comes up? When we expose ourselves to meditation and to our spiritual practice, what comes up? The Divine bubbles up inside us! Dr. Pillai is helping to expose us to all that we need to allow the Divine to come through. And when we allow the Divine to come through, we must notice the miracles that start to happen. Any miracle is gigantic! Pay attention to the miracles. Everything that happens, happens because of God. If we are busy focusing on the negative, we are missing the point of being on the spiritual path! We must take responsibility for what is happening in our lives. Every action we take acts like a pebble tossed into a pond. The ripples of that action spread out over the whole pond. Be sure our actions positively affect the rest of the pond! Do not listen to your mind- this is your ego. The mind is the “mud-slinger” and will lead you astray! The mind churns up that calm pond of our consciousness and brings up the mud!
We must learn to “mind our own fabulous business”! Just forget about whatever is happening with anyone else. We are all on our own spiritual trip and it is totally irrelevant where anyone else appears to be. We have chosen our own lives for specific lessons that we need to learn. Sucharita tells us that it is very difficult to be born into a human body on the earth plane, so we must cherish this experience. Just give yourself to the Divine and you will find your right path. We will have Wisdom. There is a difference between Wisdom and Intelligence. We ask, “What is our purpose in this life?” We must go inside and ask the Divine. Surrender to God and you will know your true dharma or purpose! The truth is that we are God and we when grab onto this fact, we are safe. Dr. Pillai gives us the tools we need to grab onto God! We have the meditations, the mantras, the rituals and the remedies. These are gifts from Dr. Pillai to give us God Consciousness! We must keep our eyes on the prize because there isn’t that much time left! The good news is that this is the Golden Age and we have Dr. Pillai to help us to attain that prize!
One of the things that we can do to raise our consciousness and positively affect the world is to hang out with spiritual masters. Dr. Pillai is having a Birthday Trip to India and this is an opportunity to hang out with an enlightened master! Dr. Pillai will take everyone on the trip to important vortices that he has especially chosen for the energies of the day. When you visit power vortices you become permeated with the energy of God and you will take it with you everywhere. However, if you can’t attend the Birthday Trip, Dr. Pillai has arranged for all of us to participate in the benefits of being in his presence. There are different levels of the proxy attendance that we can participate in. Learn more about the Proxy Birthday Trip packages here.
Saturn will be entering Sagittarius this week on Thursday January 26 (in the west). Saturn will give us the patience we need to follow our spiritual practices. Read about what this means for your life here.
Friday will bring the Thai Amavasya New Moon. Amavasya means New Moon and when it occurs in the month of Thai, it is a very special Time Shakti. This is the time to help the lineage that is creating a stream of consciousness for each of us. This is the time to honor and nourish the ancestors to help them to evolve and release them into higher realms. We share the DNA of our ancestors, so we must all evolve together! Learn more about Thai Amavasya.
Important Upcoming Events This Week: Check the Pillai Center and the AstroVed Event Calendars for other upcoming events. Depending on where you live, the day of the week will be different. Check the Panchang with your location to see when you should be observing the rituals.

11th Waning Moon
Ekadasi represents the eleventh phase of both the waning and waxing periods of the Moon. In Vedic mythology, Ekadasi represents a potent time for Karma elimination. You can experience incredible changes in your psycho-spiritual body and progress towards freedom and perfection by observing a few simple rituals on this day. Previously these rituals were only known to the ancient seers of India. Roll and break a coconut or lime(s) to remove obstacles and karma. Chant Om Namo Narayanaya to Lord Vishnu. Learn how.

13th Moon – Pradosham
The 13th Moon phase is called Pradosham, a karma-removing time. When Pradosham occurs on a Tuesday it is known as Runa Vimochana Pradosham. It has the special quality of dissolving negative debt karma. Pradosham is the time to humbly seek relief from the negative karma you created through ignorance. Inert energies lay dormant in your soul, and nobody knows when the seeds of negative karma will manifest suddenly in your life. Participate in the Pradosham rituals on January 25, 2017. Learn more.
Wednesday, Jan 25th @ 5:27 PM EST
Ganesha’s 14th Waning Moon
Remember that Dr. Pillai has said that 2017 is continuing to be a year of Ganesha. 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 how.

New Moon Thai Amavasya
Thai Amavasya (January 27th IST) is the first New Moon after the Sun starts moving toward the Northern hemisphere. The Sun will be in the sign Capricorn, and is called the ‘Dawn in Heaven’ – the time when the earth plane is filled with the auspicious energy of renewal. Connecting with the souls of your ancestors when the Sun, representing the soul in Vedic astrology, is strongest, enables you to receive your ancestors’ blessing in abundance. Ancestors come to the earth plane every New Moon, but this Moon is special. Learn more.
