Enjoy this week’s video replay on YouTube.

We need volunteers to  edit video clips after the call on Saturdays and post them to the Pillai Center Practice YouTube Channel (Powertime Practice Playlist).  If you would like to experience the blessings of doing selfless service, please email us at powertimepractice@pillaicenter.com.

Sucharita welcomed us to the Powertime Practice (PTP) call on Saturday Sept 14, 2019, reminding us that we are there together on these calls to navigate the teachings of Dr. Pillai and learn to navigate the obstacles in our lives.  We are learning how to harness time and how to evolve in our spiritual lives.  Also, we are here to learn to manifest our desires.  Dr. Pillai is teaching us mantras, rituals, ceremonies to assist us in our spiritual travels and practices. 

It is Mahalaya Paksha, the time of the year when the ancestors are very close to the earth plane. Paksha means “the fortnight on either side of the full moon.”  To honor the ancestors, we offer black sesame seeds.  Hold in the right palm and cover with water while calling on 6 generations on both sides of your family.  You don’t need to call the individual names, just be general. This ritual is called “tarpanam”and Dr. Pillai has done many videos showing how to do this.  There are other items that can be added to the offering such as darba grass, white rice flour and a coin.  Make this offering in the daylight hours only, after dawn and before sunset, while facing south.  The ancestors will send thoughts to us during this two week period and will greatly appreciate this “feeding” ritual.  Dr. Pillai teaches us that in addition to the physical DNA that we inherit from our ancestors, we also inherit their karma and spiritual DNA.  He calls this Soul Genetics. There is a Soul Genetics course at Pillai Academy. Sucharita mentions that there are year long programs offered from Pillai Center and AstroVed to deal with soul genetics. 

Sucharita showed us a cool statue of Hanuman, the monkey god, with his foot on Lord Saturn.  Saturn helps us to move towards a spiritual path by teaching us patience, perseverance, passion and responsibility.  And Saturn delivers hard karmas!  Hanuman can make Saturn to be a little more gentle in the karma he deals us!  Sucharita also showed us a sesame oil lamp.  Lord Saturn loves sesame oil lamps with black sesame seeds added.  Om Sanicharaya Namaha is the mantra for Saturn.  Saturn will be going direct in Sagittarius this week. Saturn Direct in Sagittarius can bring significant transformation in all aspects of life. During this period, Saturn can make you more organized, goal-oriented, and focused on materializing your desires. You should focus on bringing in material resources through perseverance and hard work. We can make use of these 128 days of Saturn Direct in Sagittarius to harvest the benefits of your hard work.

The sun will be going into Virgo on Tuesday.  This will make us pay attention to details!  The devil is in the details!  The sun, which represents our soul, will be asking us to get our lives in order.

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.

FREE ARCHANA SERVICE AT THIRUCHENDUR MURUGA POWERSPOT Mythologically, Thiruchendur is the place where Muruga killed the most powerful evil demon Soorapadman and his brothers Tarakasura and Simhamugan, rescuing the Devas (celestial beings) from his evil grip. At the end of the war, the demon Soorapadman, realizing his defeat, turned himself into a mango tree. Muruga used his Vel to split the tree into two halves, leading to Soorapadman pleading for mercy and asking for a boon to be with Muruga. Thus, one-half of the tree was transformed into a peacock (his vehicle) and the other half to a rooster (emblem in his flag).

The 6th 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.

Kala Bhairava has the ability to dissolve repetitive negative patterns that result in procrastination, lethargy, anxiety, and lack of motivation.
