My name is Sucharita, a Pillai Center Teacher and your guide in this Weekly Call Program called Sundays with Sucharita. I’ll be giving you insights, tips and tools for getting the most out of your spiritual practices and how to apply those teachings in your daily life. I’m always happy to share what I’ve learned during the past 17 years as a student and mentor of Dr Pillai’s programs offered through Pillai Center and AstroVed Advisory Services. If you’re not able to join every week, there will be recordings of the calls and other weekly teachings made available for you to download on the Pillai Center Blog under the Sundays with Sucharita tab. It’s up to you how often you’d like to join the calls, although as Dr Pillai shares, it is important that everyone establishes a regular routine to enjoy the benefits of the teachings and services offered. It is a pleasure to be of service and I’m looking forward to sharing in your weekly transformation process. See you on Sundays! Sucharita

Goodbye Sundays with Sucharita, Hello Powertime Practice

drpillai108

 

Sucharita bid us a good morning this Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017 on our final Sundays With Sucharita call!  We will be switching our call day from Sundays to Saturdays at 10 AM ET (7 AM PT) on starting Saturday, November 18, 2017.  The calls will be taking place through the video platform Zoom and will be called Powertime PracticeIf you are receiving emails from Sundays with Sucharita, we will send you access details prior to November 18th. If you are NOT already on the email list, sign up here.

Sucharita will still be offering her pearls of wisdom that are so priceless and Radha, our astrologer, will still be sharing about the different aspects and energies of the stars and planets during our weeks to come.  We will still be looking at how we use our time and learn how to use time more wisely.  Saturday is ruled by Saturn and is a great teacher.  He wants to bring the ancient teachings to the forefront and he will help us to find our real purpose in life.  “Know thyself!” Saturn will grind you down, but then he will shine you up!  Saturday is a perfect day to connect with the great teacher Saturn!

Dr. Pillai says that we must change the thought processes that have brought us to wherever  we are, wherever our karma has brought us.  Dr. Pillai is giving us the tools we need to do this and change our destiny.The tools are the mantras, the chants, the meditations, the remedies and rituals-all the spiritual practices we are learning.  Here is a quote from Dr. Pillai regarding Karma: 

“Karma is not just a metaphysical philosophy. It is real. Whatever you think becomes a reality in the invisible space-time complex of your soul and then this manifETs in life after an appropriate lapse of time. That’s why it is very, very important to be positive. We should have only positive thoughts. If there are negative thoughts, we do not know what danger they may inflict upon us in this life and in the life to come, because the thought process is what creates karma.”

Sucharita tells us to look at who we are and who we want to be.  This is a never-ending story and requires constant vigilance.  Control the negative thoughts through spiritual practices and trust the Divine.  Dr. Pillai says to have faith.  “Faith is utter positivity!” Sucharita mentions to continually chant the mantra “Kleem”.  This will make you attractive and help to push out the negative thoughts! 

Dr. Pillai will be giving a free Mini Mystery School Workshop on Nov. 11 and Nov 18 at 12 noon ET.

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.

Ganesha’s 4th 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.  On this day, the Moon will be in Ardra, a star of compassion. This contributes to making this a powerful day to seek Ganesha’s help in warding off obstacles that are causing delays in achieving your goals and ambitions.

6th Moon – Muruga’s Power Time

The 6th Waxing Moon (called Shasti in Sanskrit) is the most appropriate time to win the battle against negativity and evil eyes. This is a peak day for absorbing the energies of Lord Muruga (a divine warrior/healer) and the planet Mars. Muruga specializes in solving problems such as credit card debt, legal issues, health problems, etc. Call on Muruga by chanting Om SaRaVaNaBaVa on this day and by pouring milk/juice/water over a vel.

Out with the Old, In with the New!

Sucharita welcomed us this morning on the Sundays with Sucharita by conveying the news that our call will be changing to Saturdays at 10 AM EST (7 AM PST) starting on November 18th!  The name will change to Power Times, and it will still be free. Our last Sundays with Sucharita Call will Sunday, November 5th.

We will be focusing more on learning from the great teacher, Saturn, at this opportune time when Saturn has transited into the most idealist sign, Sagittarius.  Saturn is a very karmic planet.  Radha, our astrologer, will be telling us what to expect with this transit.  How does Saturn affect our spirituality, our karma?  Saturn slows things down and allows us to persist, and persevere.  He helps us to understand what we should be doing in our lives.  He can however, also have a negative side because he can cause us to doubt.  Saturn is delivering special karmic lessons to over 1/3 of the entire population of the world at any given time. Sometimes a tough Saturn transit can make you to withdraw from your family and friends.  However Saturn can also give the greatest blessings that no one can take away. Sade Sati is a 7 ½ year period when Saturn is restructuring your mind and life. So much to learn from Saturn!  OMG! 

But there are many positive sides as well.  Our souls each have their own journey to be on and we each have to figure out our own paths.  Not the path of our parents, family and friends.  This is our own karma.  We are here together with Dr. Pillai to learn how to deal with Saturn and all the rest of the planets and stars.  He has manifested an App for our smart phones called Hora Watch and we have the Panchang on AstroVed.com which tells us the moon phases, the planets horas (hours) and what stars are affecting us. 

Saturn is telling us to get with the program and know that we are Divine.  We want Saturn to keep us in reality, to show us how to live a purposeful life. With Saturn in Sagittarius we can start to look upward.  If all areas of our lives are messed up, then this is the time we can clean things up.  We can now do our spiritual practices and really see results.  We can change our lives!

The good news is that Saturn will give you peace, prosperity, health and the energy to help you achieve this.  Saturn will make us more compassionate and charitable.  We will look for ways to achieve this with Saturn.  We will be bringing in more Divine Intelligence into our lives.  Sucharita mentions a book that we should read called The Greatness of Saturn by Robert Svoboda. 

Sucharita looked at her AstroVed calendar and went through moon phases and stars of the upcoming week.  She stresses how important it is to get the calendar and study it to know what is happening astrologically.

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.

Monday, Oct 30th @9:34 AM – Tuesday, Oct 31st @ 9:26 AM ET
11th Moon – Ekadasi
The 11th Waxing Moon, or Ekadasi, is a Power Day for spiritual growth, as well as material gains,
because Vishnu, the archetype of wealth, is highly active on this day. It is this day that can help you discover the higher knowledge for finding happiness and wealth. As you begin to cultivate a relationship with this archetype of wealth and always think positively and confidently about him, Vishnu helps you successfully manifest prosperity in your life. Honor Vishnu on this day.  Vishnu is in charge of heaven. Perform the tarpanam for departed ancestors this day.   Chant Om Namo Narayanaya.

Wednesday, Nov. 1st @8:27 AM – Thursday, Nov 2nd @ 6:41 AM ET
13th Moon – Pradosham
The period during the one-and-a-half hours before sunset on every 13th Moon day is a premier karma-dissolving
powertime called Pradosham. This Karma-Dissolving Ceremony will be performed to honor Shiva, the Supreme Archetype of Karma Removal. On this day, the Moon will be in Uttara Bhadrapada, a star ruled by Saturn. This combination makes it a prime time to calm any of your fiery emotions, such as anger, revenge, jealousy, etc. There is a fire lab on this day offered through Pillai Center.  Learn more here.

Thursday, Nov. 2nd @6:41 AM – Friday, Nov. 3rd  @ 4:17 AM ET
Ganesha’s 14th 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.

Friday, Nov. 3rd  @ 4:17 AM – Sat. Nov. 4th  @1:22 AM ET
Full Moon
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. ­ The upcoming Full Moon on November 3rd has been identified by sages as a power time to remove your life challenges. During this once-a-year ceremony to Lord Shiva, an entire Shiva Lingam at power spot is anointed with a large quantity of cooked rice as a supreme offering. The life-sustaining energy and life-nourishing qualities of rice invoke the power of Lord Shiva to be fully embodied in the Shiva Lingam, a symbol of his energy and power. Read more here.  

­Friday, Nov. 3rd
VENUS TRANSITS INTO LIBRA
On November 3, 2017 (IST), Venus, the planet of beauty, material comforts and luxury will be transiting into his own house, the 7th sign of the natural zodiac. While in its own sign, Venus has more power to shower you with wealth, extravagance, jewelry, properties and harmonious relationships. This day of transit is the most opportune time to propitiate Venus and his overlord, Goddess Lakshmi, to make the most of these beneficial energies.  Read more here.

Embrace the Change!

muruga4

Sucharita welcomed us to the Sundays with Sucharita call this morning Sunday Oct. 22, 2017.  She tells us that we will perhaps be changing our call time as well as our day change Change is always good!  She will keep us updated on all the new changes.

She reminds us to always live in the now!  Dr. Pillai teaches us to learn what the Time Shaktis are and learn how to take advantage of the energies available.  Check the Panchang on AstroVed to see where the moon, planets and stars are.  The Archetypes or Divine Beings that reside within us, correspond to different times of the day, week, month and year.  At this moment in time we are connecting with Lord Muruga, the warrior god.  This time of the year is called Skanda Shasti or 6 Nights of Muruga.  If we dive deep inside in our meditation we can merge with the consciousness of Lord Muruga.  Imagine the shaft of his weapon (the Vel) going up our spine and the head of the vel ending in our third eye.  Carry his statue or gaze upon a larger statue on your altar.  As we pay attention to the Divine Beings, their energies become available for us to use. 

The Sun is in Libra right now and this is a good time to balance our spiritual aspirations.  There are a lot of things shifting in our lives during this time of the year.  There are many things happening in the world right now that may be disconcerting, and it’s OK to be empathetic, but not debilitated!  Dr. Pillai gives us the tools to help us to remain calm and detached.  Life is not who we are, but who we are are being! One of the tools that we can use to remove negativity and karma is the rolling of lemons or limes or pumpkins on our shoulders, joints, third eyes, or any body part that is full of pain!  These objects suck the karma out of us and then we destroy them by cutting or smashing and throwing them in the garbage or the garden.

Today is the 4th moon, another important Time Shatki to pay attention to.  This is one of the times of Ganesha, the elephant headed God and remover of all obstacles.  He will bring in the Goddess energy to us. His seed sound is Gum Gum Gum.  Imagine a reddish orange light at the base of our spines during meditation.

We are half way through the 6 Nights of Muruga, but Sucharita tells us it only takes one second to connect with him, so we still have plenty of time to let Muruga into our consciousness.  Muruga is going to protect us from any of the questionable astrological influences that we may be experiencing.  We are always protected, if we know how to call on him.  Use the karma removing technologies to call on Muruga.  Pumpkins are good to use this time of year, because they are readily available in the fall and they absorb a LOT of negative karma! 

We connected with Lord Muruga with his chant during our meditation. The word “mantra” means protection and Muruga’s chant is “SARAVANABAVA”. 

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.

SKANDA SHASTI 2017 LAST 3 DAYS TO INVOKE THE MURUGA WARRIOR WITHIN TO CONQUER ENEMIES, DEBTS AND DISEASES IN YOUR LIFE

­October 26, 2017 SATURN RE-ENTERS SAGITTARIUS
Saturn the karmic planet will be re-entering Sagittarius on October 26, 2017 (IST) and will be there until January 24, 2020.

Performing remedial rituals at the start of the transit helps you connect with a new and positive reality and receive ongoing blessings of Saturn.

Sucharita reminds us to carry a vel with us always to remind us of the powers of Muruga and for protection.  Lord Muruga is a Pleiadian god who is in charge of a healing army.  Chant OM Saravanabavaya Namaha. There is a ritual event being performed at AstroVed for Muruga on October 26.  Read more here.  She tells us to watch what we are eating and to eat pure organic food if possible.  For these 6 days it may be better to cook your own food so as not to take on the energy (or negative karma) of the other people who have prepared the food. 

When we become overwhelmed with what we need to do spiritually-what rituals, what mantras, what prayers-we just need to ask Dr. Pillai to tell us what to do!
