Powertime: New Moon for Liberating Ancestral Karma

Sunday, September 9 PDT

“The New Moon is the time for connecting with the Archetypes of Gods and Angels that give you transcendence as samadhi experience. It can also be something that can take you out of the mind and give you a divine experience… favorable for the mind to grow into a quiet state.” – Dr. Pillai


While Full Moons are for manifesting goals, New Moons are for going within. They are also optimal times for dissolving ancestral karma by making offerings called Tarpanam.

“On a practical level, I have found this immensely helpful to heal your health, relationship, and money problems. All these things get better once you do a ritual called Tarpanam. Tarpanam means offering food to these souls. This might seem very naïve, but then we have to evaluate it only by results produced by this practice. I have not known any particular ritual or meditation to be so powerful as this offering. I just want to develop this Soul Genetics further of how the thought patterns are inherited on the level of the soul from a pool of ancestors.” – Dr. Pillai

The New Moon is a time when your ancestors are more willing and able to make a crossing to the other worlds, and you can help liberate them. They will return the favor by freeing you from obstacles and helping you succeed in life.



Meditate. Choose whatever technique you like. For something guided, or if you haven’t chosen a technique, you can find Dr. Pillai’s meditations on YouTube or the Pillai Center Blog.

Donate Food to the Hungry. New Moons and Saturdays are some of the best times for donating food. Dr. Pillai founded the Tripura Foundation to provide food, brain development training, medicine, and other support for some of the world’s poorest people. Learn about the Million Meals of HoPE program, which distributes food to those who need it most, in the most cost effective manner.

How to Do Tarpanam Offerings at Home to Dissolve Ancestral Karma

You’ll need: raw rice or white rice flour, black sesame seeds, dharba grass, a coin (dime, nickel, quarter, or gold coin), and a glass of water.

  1. Hold a tablespoon of black sesame seeds, rice, a coin, and a few pieces of dharba grass in your right hand.
  2. Sprinkle a few drops of water on the mixture.
  3. Pour water onto the mixture.
  4. As you do this, beginning with your maternal ancestors, say: “I invite you to take this offering. Six generations of maternal ancestors. Take this energy. Be healed. Be at peace. Cross into the light, and please remember to bless me.”You can name specific ancestors. As you get more comfortable with this, you can increase the number of generations to 12 or more.
  5. Pour the rest of the water on the mixture in your right hand. Let the mixture rinse off. You can do this over a tub or sink.
  6. Make a heartfelt prayer to your ancestors and thank them.
  7. Repeat all of the above for your father’s side of the family.
