The Guru’s Sacrifice to Bring You Miracles: Guru Purnima

The Guru’s Sacrifice to Bring You Miracles: Guru Purnima

  What is your most burning wish? You know: the one that doesn’t let you sleep at night and comes to your mind without hesitation. For most, the word is money. For many it’s happiness, for others it’s health. According to the wisdom traditions of the Siddhas, Rishis and yogis of India, a real guru, or rather a Guru, is a being with supernatural powers who can take you from an ordinary state of consciousness to a place hidden in your brain and soul, from which you can become infinite. You can then acquire a higher state of consciousness and find solutions to all your problems. Better yet, this exceptional person will make a sacrifice, taking on your bad karma that is creating the problems in your life. This act of sacrifice isn’t without risks for the Guru—in fact some gurus suffer from diseases after healing their students, or undergo various unpleasant consequences for having helped and interfered with someone’s bad karma. A truly enlightened master, in fact, is believed to come to earth with the full awareness of his or her divine origins, and with just one goal—uplifting humanity and ending suffering. These spiritual beings have obtained supernormal powers that they may or may not want to display—but if you dig into their lives, you’ll know they aren’t ordinary humans. They’ve been seen levitating, or acquiring a luminous halo around their body, communicating telepathically, healing years’ worth of sorrows, materializing objects, and producing life-changing miracles. Suspending our skepticism in an era of fast growing technology and science isn’t easy—yet testimonials from thousands of people around the world can’t...
Mars in Aries: 3 Ways to Empower Yourself and Turn Your Dreams Into Reality

Mars in Aries: 3 Ways to Empower Yourself and Turn Your Dreams Into Reality

      In sidereal Pisces, Mars, the planet of courage and energy seemed gentler, more devotional, inwardly focused and kind of reserved. All the above qualities are now out of sight, as the transit of the Red Planet in the first constellation of the zodiac is a real game changer. Now Mars will move through sidereal Aries between March 1 and April 12, and will acquire both powerhouse status and missile-like energy. In their meditative states, ancient yogis saw the Martian electromagnetic field and observed how it affected the human brain and consciousness, bringing motivation, fearlessness, passion or anger. So, never mind the past! Here for you—three easy steps and a small shift in consciousness to leave hesitation behind and move assertively forward. And if you’ve been eagerly waiting for your dreams to come true, this isn’t a moment too soon. Power of myth In Vedic astrology, Mars is synonymous with youthful energy, warrior-like instinct and muscular prowess. Stemming from the ancient Vedic texts of India, Vedic astrology is arguably the most ancient and accurate predictive system in the world. In fact, long before the Babylonian and Greek systems appeared—the Rig Veda (the oldest of the Vedas) and the hymns of Dirghatamas (a great Vedic Rishi and intuitive seer) referred to a 360-degree zodiac and the 12 signs, displaying very advanced mathematical calculations. Can you imagine counting trillions and calculating numbers followed by 12 zeros without the help of a computer? In Indian mythology, Mangala or Mars is considered a son of Bhumi or Earth and Vishnu, the celestial being who preserves the universe. Another myth says that...
The Truth Shall Set you Free!

The Truth Shall Set you Free!

The Sun represents our soul and Sunday is the day for our soul to set the trajectory for the coming week!  If we feel overwhelmed and out of control at this time of the year, we must turn inside to connect with the Divine.  As the Sun has entered into Capricorn, it’s going to bring to our attention our true purpose (dharma) in our lives. Try to stay away from the news being broadcast on TV, papers and internet.  This news has been filtered by a certain point of view, and usually it’s not a positive slant! Negativity clouds our perception of our true purpose. Dr. Pillai says that even the gods in the heavens are competing with each other!  As above, so below.  Whatever is going on earth plane is all a play of consciousness. All of us are watching the play from our own ego perspective, so everyone sees things differently! Once we see that we are all one, we may see things clearly from the highest point of view. Dr. Pillai is giving us the tools to be able to advance ourselves on the spiritual path, so we can see through the drama, identify with our Highest Self and attain our highest purpose.  We ask ourselves “what are we doing here?  Are we an experiment in the experience of being human?”  If we can transcend the earthly drama, we will look at the lessons we are learning from a different perspective, from a spiritual perspective and we will see the Truth.  This Truth will set you free! Dr. Pillai is opening a temple for Karuppaswamy today...
Vedic Winter Solstice – Sun Enters Capricorn

Vedic Winter Solstice – Sun Enters Capricorn

Today is a power day for Vishnu called Vaikunta Ekadasi, where he opens the doors to heaven and can give wealth and enlightenment blessings. Om Namo Narayanaya! Currently Sun is still transiting the most idealistic sign, Sagittarius. This Friday January 13th at 9:05 p.m. EST Sun will move into Capricorn. This is called the Vedic Winter Solstice, and it initiates the six months of the year when the Sun is moving northward through the zodiac. North being the direction of Kubera, the banker in heaven, means that this is a favorable time to start new ventures, and it supports financial growth. The Sun is bringing in new life force, consciousness, and purpose into the world. Henceforth more light will be coming in. This is a perfect time to throw out the old and welcome in the new. Especially in this week leading up to the Vedic Winter Solstice, clean out the clutter in your closets, office, house. Donate or throw away old items from your past that don’t fit with the new life you are in the process of creating. This can include old clothing that you don’t wear, items you aren’t using, and broken and unusable things. Revisit your goal list and reassess what you are doing. Make changes where needed. The energy will support letting go of bad habits and old ways of being. Empower your goals by writing them and/or creating a vision board. It is a great time to focus on your career and life purpose because Capricorn is the natural 10th house of profession. The Sun symbolizes our soul, activity, royalty, and the father....

Shaking Up the Snow Globe

Christmas and the New Year are fast approaching and Sucharita invites us to reflect on our lives up to now and ask “How have we evolved ourselves?”  Each Sunday we should ask ourselves “Who am I and where am I going?”  We should check the Time Shaktis and then dive deep down inside to access the energies available.  This is the way we can take control of our lives and stop this never-ending cycle of action and reaction (karma).  Dr. Pillai often says that the best way to evolve spiritually is to feed a hungry person.  We can easily take care of this by participating in Tripura Foundation donation gift cards.  There are gift cards available that will help us in three ways: 1.) The needy get food, shelter and educations, 2.) the recipient of the gift card gets the karmic benefit of donating to the needy, 3.) You get the double benefit of donating to the needy and introducing your gift card recipient to Tripura Foundation (or any charity you may choose!) Learn more here. Sucharita mentioned that there will be a special homa offered at AstroVed.com on New Years Eve.  AstroVed has created an exclusive 2-Day Grand Ceremony called “START ANEW FOR 2017” to cleanse your karmic debts, which are the root cause for your problems, and invite wealth and health for the New Year. On December 31st, they are featuring the ancient karma-removing Kushmanda homa prescribed in the second oldest Veda, Yajur Veda. On January 1st, the grand finale is a wish-fulfilling wealth homa that invokes Archetype Kamadhenu, the divine feminine holy cow that Dr. Pillai...
