Good morning fellow spiritual aspirants!  Sucharita welcomed us on the November 10th video call, telling us about the celebration of the 6 Days of Muruga or Skanda Shasti and showing us an array of his statues and pictures.    Through the blessings of Dr. Pillai we are able to participate in many rituals and remedies that will help up get through the challenges of our lives.  We have mantras for protection, skepticism, depression and other mental, physical and spiritual maladies.

These 6 days are the time to fight our battles with the assistance of Lord Muruga.  We are hurling through the Pleiades, the constellation of Lord Muruga, and this going to help us to reach the enlightenment we want by waking us up and opening up our third eye.  We can then collectively raise the consciousness of the whole world!  Sucharita showed us Lord Muruga’s spear, called a vel, and tells us that the vel is going to destroy our karma.  She told us that the shaft of the vel is aligned with our spine and the tip of the vel represents our crown chakra and third eye.

She mentions that Dr. Pillai is in India right now doing a Muruga Immersion Program for three days  There are other programs offered for Skanda Shasti from Pillai Center…read about them here.  Here is the link for the Grand Finale Muruga Fire Prayers led by a Western Teacher happening on Monday, Nov. 12 at 10:00 PM EST.

Watch this and all LIVE (and recorded) Ceremony Webcasts on or on the Astroved YouTube Channel.

Muruga’s divine weapon is a spear called the vel. Sucharita showed us an array of vels available from Pillai Center and AstroVed = and .  She says that these symbols activate and unlock the portals to the Divine within.  She showed us how to hydrate and activate the vels.  This will transform misery to miracle!  She had whole milk, some red fruit juice, water for rinsing, food in the form of nuts, fire in the form of a ghee lamp, fragrance in the form of incense and flowers.  Offer these gifts to the vel or statue of Muruga and this will destroy karma and ego! She says when you say a mantra and offer a flower, it is like sending your prayers with special delivery!

Meditation:  We chanted Na Ma Si Va Ya to open up the pathways to the Divine inside.  We invoked Dr. Pillai with the Moola Mantra: Om Aim Hreem Sarva Lokaya Adityaya Siva Satguru Babaya Swaha.  To call on Muruga we chanted his mantra Sa Ra Va Na Ba Va Ya, and also a great mantra SUMA IRU SOLLARA which means “be still”.
