Sucharita welcomed everyone to the Powertime Practice call today, Saturday August 31, 2019.  She says that this is one of the most auspicious times of the year to tap into the energy of time!  We are here to learn from Dr. Pillai’s teachings how to tap into these energies that reside inside each of us.  One of these energies is the god Ganesha.  Lord Ganesha is the elephant-headed god who is the remover of all obstacles, seen and unseen, and he will give us the energy we need to remove obstacles, to help us to start fresh and have new beginnings!  Ganesha is always the first and foremost god that we propitiate in our meditations. 

Ganesha’s birthday, called Ganesha Chathurthi, will occur on Sunday September 1 and Monday, September 2 in the west.  Pillai Center/Astroved Ceremonies will be performed LIVE in India starting at 9:30 p.m. EDT on Sunday, September 1. Watch LIVE on Astroved YouTube Channel.

NEW Pillai Academy course called Ganesha: Destroying Doubt. Join to attend a LIVE webcast of the teachings on Sunday, September 1 at 10:00 p.m. EDT.

AstroVed and Pillai Center will be offering 4 NEW ongoing ritual packages to receive blessings from Ganesha: 1. Removal of obstacles 2. Highest intelligence & self esteem 3. Obtain shortcuts to success 4. Pleasant physical appearance.

We will be offering water, sweets and durva grass (bermudagrass) to Lord Ganesha during our meditation.  To call on Ganesha we use his seed sound, “GUM, GUM, GUM”.  He will elevate our consciousness so we can be in the right place at the right time with the right people to manifest our desires!  He is also the king of the natural 8th house of the zodiac, Scorpio, which is the house of transformation and death.  Death of what?  Not necessarily the death of anyone, but maybe the death of your ego!  Or maybe the death of things that are blocking your way to success!  Ganesha will remove doubt!  Doubt is fear!  Diseases can manifest when we are blocked, doubtful and fearful. 

Sucharita showed us several different statues of Ganesha.  One has a human head called Aadi Ganesha or the first Ganesha.  He is the Ganesha of beauty. 

There are several more courses about Ganesha at the Pillai Academy: “New Ganesha Revelations and “Ganesha Archetype of Good Fortune

“The birthday of Ganesha is a time to remember him as a God coming to help us with intelligence and technologies. I want you to take advantage of the very special time of his birthday because it is the day he showers blessings on people who come to him. I have carefully examined every aspect of help that is available from Ganesha on this day. And, I want everyone to participate in it and solve problems that aren’t able to be solved humanly.”  Dr. Pillai I d

“There is a bodily location for this karma. That bodily location is the Svadhisthana Chakra which is the Second Chakra. What happens at the 2nd Chakra is the worst karma gets deposited there. You can clean up that karma only through the help of Muruga at Thiruchendur.”- Dr. Pillai Learn more

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.

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.
