Remember to listen to your higher self, because you can’t go wrong! We are where we are, in any particular moment, where we are supposed to be, according to our karma and according to where our Divine Self wants us to be. If we want to know more about our position in the cosmos, Sucharita recommends getting an astrology reading, either from our SWS astrologer Radha (see bottom of email) or from an astrologer at AstroVed.com. She also reminds us that we each have two angels that are watching over us and that we can find out who these are at AstroVed.com by ordering the “Know Your Favorable Diety Report”. These angels act as our bodyguards and if we listen to them we are protected. Dr. Pillai says not to follow anything blindly, but to know yourself and Sucharita tells us to read the book The Greatness of Saturn, by Robert Svoboda. It is available on www.Amazon.com.
Dr. Pillai’s teachings focus on making use of the energies that are available from the planets and stars, so on these calls Sucharita is going to give up a heads-up on what energies are going to be available in the coming days. The planets are beings that shine energies down upon us. Pay attention to this! Dr. Pillai has given us the tools to do this. On AstroVed.com there is something called The Panchang which will tell us what the hora (planet energy) of the hour is, as well as the moon phase, and certain other times that we should be paying attention to every day. This is a free service. There is also an app for our smart phones called HoraWatch. Download it and it will “ping” or alert you every time the hora changes. This reminds us of the planet (Divine Being) that is affecting the hour. We can chant this planet’s mantra to get his blessings. This is how we are going to avoid pitfalls and take short cuts to speed ahead on the spiritual path.
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 Waxing Moon – Ekadasi
A Fire Lab will be performed for the Archetype Rama, a warrior/ruler form of Vishnu at AstroVed. Rama embodies the consciousness of an ultimate winner and perfect human. The Fire Lab will be performed while the Moon is in the same star it was in when Rama incarnated in ancient times: Punarvasu. Furthermore, Vishnu rules Mercury, he planet that rules Wednesday (the day of the week in India this Fire Lab will be performed), and Vishnu’s energy is very active during 11th Waxing Moon (the Moon phase during the Fire Lab).
Rama’s energy can give you the highest self-esteem as well as victory in all areas of your life. He can make you a successful winner. The very name Rama is considered a star amongst mantras, representing an entire spectrum of divine power as the sounds of RAMA are a merger of both Vishnu’s and Shiva’s energy. Learn more.
We can honor Vishnu on this day at home. Perform the tarpanam for departed ancestors on this day and chant Om Namo Narayanaya.

13th Moon – Pradosham
The 13th Moon phase is called Pradosham, a karma-removing time. The Moon will be in the star of Magha during this time. This means negative karma you may be receiving from your ancestors who are not yet in the light can be purified. Magha is ruled by the ‘Pitris’ who are the ancestors who have crossed into the light and have gained divine power. Learn more.

Every Full Moon is a power time for wealth and enlightenment. Goddess energy is particularly present. Doing your spiritual practices and meditations on this day/night will be very powerful. Shreem Brzee is the ultimate wealth mantra.
A Fire Lab will be performed at AstroVed for the Archetype Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth, beauty, and good fortune, during the Full Moon, a very powerful time to acquire the wealth energies of the Goddess. The day has several auspicious elements. The Moon will be in the star of Purva Phalguni (sometimes called the “party star”). This star is ruled by Venus, a planet ruled by Lakshmi. Venus will be in full strength sitting in Pisces, a Zodiac sign ruled by benefic Jupiter. Jupiter will also be giving additional favorable influences to Venus due to his current placement in the Zodiac. Read more.
Enjoy this week’s Meditation Audio. Sucharita checked the hora of the hour in order to guide us in the meditation. We always start with a prayer to Ganesha before we start ANYTHING we do, spiritual or daily life activities. Ganesha rules the lowers chakras and we concentrate on the lower chakras to ground ourselves in this physical plane. This prepares us to accept the gifts of the Divine offered during our meditation.
Enjoy this week’s Discussion Audio.
