Muruga Teaching Secrets of OM to Siva

Call Recording: Muruga and Other Discussion

Mytho-therapy:

At one time Maharishi Brighu knew the secret of Om and was trying to destroy the world. Lord Siva prevented this act by placing his hands over Brighu’s head and saying: ‘You must forget the Om mantra.’ At that instant the secret of Omkara mantra faded from his memory. Brighu realized what was happening and in turn cursed Siva saying: ‘You will forget the Om mantra too.’ And Siva forgot the secret of Om as well.  Later on Siva went to Muruga and asked him to teach the secret of the Omkara mantra to him.  Muruga agreed explaining that Siva would have to be his student. Siva agreed, and Muruga whispered the secret of Om in his father’s ear. This is the history of the vortex of the Muruga temple at Swamimalai.

Dr. Pillai teaches Om as Ah, Oo, Ma:

  • Ah represents Siva,
  • Oo represents Shakti
  • Ma represents Maya

 

 

Even just using one of these syllables manifests great power.

Muruga’s 6 Heads:

Muruga’s 6 Heads represent 6 parts of the brain as well as 6 Siddhis.  These represent the 5 faces of Siva and the Face of Uma Devi or Parvati, which can only be seen by the wise. He is able to see North, South, East West Sky and Earth. These faces represent the 5 senses which lead to the 6th sense, or inner knowing, the Atho-mugam.

The 6 faces mantra is: SA RA VA NA BA VA

Forehead: Tatpurushaya

Top of Head: Ishanaya

Right Brain: Aghora Hridayaya

Left Brain: Vama Devaya

Back of Brain (Occipital Lobe): Sadyojataya

3rd Eye, Pineal Gland Atho-mugam

Muruga and Six Temples in Tamil Nadu

Call Recording: Muruga and Other Discussion

Symbolism Associated with Muruga( Healer/Warrior Archetype Who Rules Mars):

Vel, or shakti /spear / lance, is his most powerful weapon. Made by Parvati and given to him to defeat the Asura Soorapadman in battle. The Vel embodies Parvati’s energy and power.

Discus: symbolizes his knowledge of truth

Mace: represents his strength

Javelin: symbolizes his far reaching protection

Bow: represents his ability to overcome all ills

Peacock: His vehicle, signifies Eternal Light, Om, represents the destruction of ego, and symbolizes mastery over space, time, and death

Rooster: Wards off all evil and Negativity, signifies Infinite sound, and adorns his flag.

There is a very powerful debt-busting  mantra for Muruga to dissolve all kinds of debts (personal, credit card, IRS, even the national debt):

Om Sa Ra Va Na Ba Va Ya Ru Na Vee Mo Kshanaya Murugaya Skandaya Swaha

If you recite this mantra 1008 x’s/ day for 40 days, it can set in motion things that will help clear up debts! It is also very beneficial to light a candle or ghee lamp before a picture, or even better yet, a statue or yantra of Muruga, to burn Mars (Tues.) Incense from AstroVed.com, offer flowers, and a small fruit (even a raisin) or nut. If using a statue or yantra, you can also use a red juice for abishekam such as cranberry juice, per Dr. Pillai.

A Gayathri Mantra for Muruga

Om Karthikeyaya Vidh Mahe
Shakti Hastaya Dhi Mahi Tanna Skanda Prachodayat

Six Faces of Muruga, Healer & Protector

Call Recording: Muruga as Protector & Healer, Time Element: Karanas

Transformative Mantra given to Arunagiri by Muruga: Chumma Iru Sollara (Mind Be Still)

Dr. Pillai teaches that for the Siddhas, health is the most important factor in human life. They say: ’I am the body’. If the body gets sick, even the soul will not stay in a sick body, it will leave. The ultimate teaching is that the body is Light. When our body goes beyond the senses, beyond the material perceptions, we’ll be able to have perfect health. Muruga can help us attain fantastic health because he is youthful forever.

  • Murugan means handsome or beautiful.
  • Kumaran means youthful.
  • Guhan gives you the secrets of life, the hidden secrets of life.

MURUGAN KUMARAN GUHAN is a very powerful mantra to chant. Muruga is never born and will never die. He is the energy of existing forever.

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.
