Can Guru Purnima Help You Become the Best You Can Be?

Can Guru Purnima Help You Become the Best You Can Be?

  Whether you’ve been studying with Dr. Pillai or just beginning, you might be happy to hear about a special time window that can accelerate your evolution by hundreds, if not thousands, of times. Guru Purnima or Full Moon of the Guru is a yearly celebration of a great lunar event eagerly awaited by all yogis from spiritual traditions spanning millennia. In India, there’s a belief that without a Guru we risk living our life in darkness or ignorance, repeating mistakes that are due to our karmic thoughts with nearly no hope for change. Receiving the blessings of your guru on the Full Moon of the Guru is said to lead you to higher states of consciousness and to gaining supernormal powers.     According to the Tamil Siddhas, Guru Purnima’s lunar energy raises the collective consciousness on earth, and benevolent celestial beings and ascended Siddhas flock here in their light bodies. This year Guru Purnima begins on July 7 at 22:01 EDT and ends just past midnight on July 9. Who is the Guru? Truly enlightened gurus help their students gain more confidence, higher intelligence, compassion, the capacity to give and receive love, lasting well-being and the ability to solve all problems. Notably, powerful individuals such as Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg have admitted that their connection to a guru—Neem Karoli Baba—was instrumental for reaching incredible success after times of financial uncertainty. Receiving direct teachings and guidance from a spiritual teacher or guru holds great importance in India. This makes sense if we think that we need to be taught nearly everything—the steps for career advancement, education, sports...

Sun Enters Libra

Sun transits into Libra on Sunday, October 16th and will continue there until November 15, 2016. The Sun signifies your physical health, vitality, self-esteem, father, and even your soul. Sun doesn’t feel comfortable in Libra. It is his debilitation or lowest power position. It’s like he falls down to earth during this month. The good thing is that this is an opportunity to get to know Sun more and build a better relationship with him. Libra is an air sign ruled by Venus. Venus is a luxury-loving planet of love, beauty, the Goddess, and the arts. And wealth. Libra can bring blessings of being popular, peace-loving, and having harmonious relationships with others. Libra is called Tula in Sanskrit. Libra is a sign of harmony and balance. Libra’s symbol is a man in a bazaar, or open-air market, with a scale in his hand. The symbol shows how Libra energies support business, negotiation, and finding balance. This can mean finding win-win solutions that benefit everyone, being successful in business – putting together a good deal, and being diplomatic. As the natural 7th house of the zodiac, Libra is all about creating and maintaining relationships. This involves compromise and balancing the needs of each person involved. Learning to stay balanced is a big theme. Libra is the halfway point through the zodiac. Libra can also lead you to develop a strong relationship with the Divine through love and devotion. But don’t try to please everyone, or compromise your core values too much. In negotiation, you have to know what the minimum deal that would be workable for you and be able...

Happy Mothers Day & Akshaya Tritiya!

Happy Mother’s Day! This is the time of the Goddess – a day for nurturing and love! It is so important to get connected with the Mother. No matter what our relationship with our mother is or has been, we need to connect with the mother on a soul level. The Mother is the one who brought us into this world and Dr. Pillai has said to get the blessings of the Mother is greater than even the blessings of God. If we don’t have a good relationship with our moms, this is the time to heal. If our mothers have passed on, then we can perform a great Tarpanam ritual for her. Read more here. Today is also Akshaya Tritiya, a special third waxing moon associated with Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth. This is the day to get non-declining wealth. They say that any good deed or donation that is done today is multiplied by a thousand! This is also a good day to buy gold. Gold is the divine currency which is utilized in the upper realms. Sucharita tells us to continue to worship Lakshmi daily. Tomorrow Jupiter will be going direct in Leo. This means Jupiter will again be moving forward in the heavens, and will give us the direction to get what it is that we want to manifest. This will help us to get focused in our meditation and give us direction on our spiritual path. Yesterday Dr. Pillai broadcast a FREE brain training called “Your Brain Determines Your Money” Watch the video. Dr. Pillai teaches us to access the part of our brain...

Bust Your Obstacles!

Sucharita is now in Madurai near a powerful vortex for the goddess Meenakshi, an avatar of Parvati. She told us stories of how Ganesha was removing obstacles all along the way to enter Meenakshi temples where foreigners are not usually allowed. These are examples of how to use the energy of Ganesha wherever you are and wherever you go. She reminds us to put our obstacles (bad karma) in coconuts and smash them, dissolving all our problems! Monday, April 25th will be the 4th waning moon which is a good time to propitiate Ganesha. Offer Bermuda grass or Bermuda grass seeds to Ganesha, light a ghee lamp, pray to Ganesha, or anything to connect with him. Learn more on AstroVed. Wednesday, April 27th will be the 6th moon, the time for Lord Muruga, Ganesha’s brother. He is the archetype to remove debt, disease & legal problems. The 8th waning moon is right behind on Friday, April 29th. This is the time of Kala Bhairava, the god of time. Resonate with the energy of Kala Bhairava on this day to speed things up. Dr. Pillai says that waiting is a waste of time!

Ganesha And Super Human Powers

Ganesha And Super Human Powers

Ganesha: Lord of the Angels Ganesha simply means “the one who is the Lord of Angels, Ganas.” Ganas are angels. The angels have superhuman powers, because they are not humans, and he is the Lord of the Angels. Ganesha Has Siddhi Powers Why he’s the Lord of all of the Angels is because he knows the secret of all Siddhi powers. Siddhi powers are supernormal, superhuman powers. It’s not just mythology when we talk about superhuman powers. It is literally within the context of the Indian Gods and Goddesses, I know personally, and is also supported by scriptures. They are so, but then one has to know the methodology of it. What is a Superhuman Power? A superhuman power is something you cannot do on your own because of human limitations, whereas if you use an angel, then the angel can do a better job. Even in Jesus Christ’s case when he was arrested, he mentioned to Peter: “Look, if my Father had really wanted to help me he would have sent an angel to fight the Romans, but he did not send it.” Angels Have Superhuman Powers So, angels can do things that we cannot do. But there is a science behind this, and the course that I will do, I think, by the end of the year, is going to be on supernormal powers, as discussed by Patanjali, the Father of Yoga. Supernormal Power Of Precognition To come back to Ganesha, what supernormal powers are associated with Ganesha? All kinds of powers, but primarily the power to know ahead of time the problems and then avoid that...
