Goddess Abirami appearing before a priest who was her sincere devotee. He had mistakenly told the king it was a Full Moon day instead of a New Moon day which is what it actually was. The king was going to punish the priest for giving out bad astrological information as this would confuse the people into doing the wrong prayers and rituals on the wrong day. The priest prayed intensely and sang songs to Goddess Abirami.

She appeared before him and took off one of her earrings and threw it up into the sky where it became the Full Moon for that evening to make the priest’s words come true. The king was humbled by the miracle and canceled the punishment and gave the priest the title Abirami Pattar (the priest of Goddess Abirami). The songs have become famous in Tamil literature as Abhirami Anthadhi, a collection of stanzas in which the last one word of one stanza is used as the first word for the next stanza.

A simple mantra for her is

Om Abirami Namaha

Welcome:

This is the recording of our Vedic Astrology Club call which occurred on Saturday March 8, 2014.

Thank you to all the participants and to Rani and Bhairavi, our guest speakers.

In regards to Ganesha mantras, these are all Siddhi Mantras. It is recommended to shower, or wash face and limbs before reciting them. 3 pranayams (rhythmic breathing) is recommended before starting, and a minimum of 108 repetitions done for 48 days at a set hour will yield excellent results. As we establish these sounds within ourselves, we activate these qualities within us as well.
~ GUM GUM GUM – invokes the 1st Avatar of Ganesha, Vakratunda

~ OM GUM GANAPATIYE NAMAHA – invokes Ganesha as a Leader of the Ganas

~ OM SHREEM, HREEM, KLEEM, GLOUM, GUM GANAPATAYE,
VARA VARADA SARVA JANAMME VASHAMAANAYA SWAHA

Dr. Pillai explained that Varada means protector and benefactor for the present times. Shreem, Hreem, and Kleem invoke the Goddesses and their Shakti energy to add to this process.

~ To remove very stubborn obstacles, Dr. Pillai recommends chanting:

OM GHE GHE GHE, KROM KROM KROM, UCCHISTA GANAPATAYE, HASTI PISACHI LIKHE SWAHA

~ Also, Dr. Pillai has mentioned that Ganesha wishes to be worshiped in his primordial Human- faced form for the Golden Age. The Mantra for this form:

OM GUM ADHI GANESHAYA NAMAHA

~ Dr. Pillai advises to visualize Ganesha ascending into your Thalamus  to remove Negative Karma stored in your brain.

This is one of Bhairavi’s favorite mantras for Ganesha: Avatar of Ganesha, Vakratunda
VAKRATUNDA MAHAKAYE Oh Lord of Curved Trunk & Large Body
SURYA KOTE SAMA-PRABHA with the Brilliance of 10 Million Suns,
NIRVIGNUM KURUME DEVA Make my works free of all Obstacles
SARVA KARESHU, SARVADA Always
Dr. Pillai described Ganesha as the Luminous Still Breath, bright as a million suns. He resides at the Muladhara, as well as in the Thalamus, which is the relay station and director for all incoming and outgoing sensory outputs. Dr. Pillai revealed this wonderful mantra and gave an empowerment for it during Ganesha’s Birthday Webcast in 2013.
