Special Days for Meditation — September 2016
September will be an interesting month. It contains many important occasions and defining moments and it would be exciting to see how all these shape the future course.
Pralaya will intensify. A few processes which have been ongoing at the astral level for some time now are expected to manifest to the physical. The effects of these will be tangible. Many Divine personalities too will be present on the Earth at different occasions during this month and each of their works are important.
Amidst all this churning, new and remarkable opportunities will also open up for each individual to change and grow. The new opportunities help in the Divine aspects like Equality, Unity, Oneness, Love and Joy to expresses themselves within. We have to consciously adopt these virtues into our living. Let us consciously make efforts to be open. That is enough for the opportunities to come our way. We then have to the make efforts and pursue them sincerely to achieve the goals.
The ego of humanity and darkness too are at their peak during this period. The various wars and chaos all over stretches humanity to its limits. The saving grace comes when we can Unite and become One. This is the only way to resolve all conflicts, overcome problems and move forward. This is the period to overcome all grudges and hatred and start manifesting love and accommodation.
Let us not be afraid or apprehensive of the upcoming period. In fact let us welcome it. Pralaya helps us to become completely Spiritual. During this short period, we can grow to levels that takes years of efforts. Let us embrace the period and accept it without complaining or judging.
In case anyone finds this phase tough, imagine a lot of dark-Blue Light coming from above and filling you and keep experiencing it till you feel relief. You can start this with 7 minutes of practice and gradually increase it. This simple technique will help you immensely.

Between this and the Lunar Eclipse on the 16th, many important events and changes will be taking place globally and at the individual level. The energies being released will also make everyone come out of their comfort zones. Old patterns will be shaken up and many suppressed and hidden aspects exposed. Some will use this opportunity wisely to improve themselves and grow, whereas many will be unable to cope up with the changes being induced and act weirdly.
The energies will be strong during the eclipse but they will help each individual immensely. It will also prepare us to sail through the difficult times ahead. Make use of the rare opportunities that will be facilitated during the eclipse. Try your best to Meditate for the entire duration.

Rishi Panchami is a thanksgiving towards the Rishis for their love and work. Though not much happens at the physical level, at the astral level God personally communicates and thanks each of the Rishis for their work and service towards His creation.

Keep experiencing this throughout the entire eclipse. Repeat the mantra “Om Grahana Tejasayai Namaha” silently.
17th to 30th September — Pitru Paksha
30th September — Mahalaya Amavasya
Pitru Paksha is the period which is meant to connect with our ancestors. After death, the individual gets disconnected with life on the Earth. This happens so that they can move on and have new beginnings. Also, having a contact with the previous incarnations affects their present life.
So we will not be able to contact or communicate with our ancestors directly. There are special Beings known as Pitru Devatas who will help in establishing an indirect contact. Such communication is usually facilitated on Amavasya, the death anniversary of the individual and during the Pitru Paksha period.
For us, we utilize this opportunity to expresses our love and gratitude to the departed ancestor and also to learn from their Wisdom. We also utilize this opportunity to clear the karmas that we inherit from the ancestors, to clear the runas and also to heal any outstanding issues.
The Rishis suggest practicing the following technique during the Pitru Paksha. It can be practiced on all the days from the 17th to the 30th. Before practicing this, first practice the general technique of Meditation for at least 24 minutes and then the following. The students can practice their respective stage Meditation.
Duration – 24 to 60 minutes
First pray to the Pitru Devatas and offer your love and respects to them. Then request them to connect you with your ancestors.
Then express your love and sentiments to them. You can also pray for good health and for peace and love in your life. Also pray to them for their help in clearing all the ancestral karmas and runas that may still be pending.
Then imagine bright-Orange and bright-Golden Light coming from above and allow it to fill your physical and astral body. Then send the same Light to your ancestors (you need not be specific to the lineage of the ancestor etc. Keep it general). Keep sending this and experiencing the Light throughout the Meditation. Repeat the mantra “Om Pitru Purvayai Mangalaya Tejasayai Namaha” silently.
♦ ♦ ♦
Mahalaya Amavasya is the concluding day of the Pitru Paksha and the beginning of Navratri. If you have been unable to practice the ancestor technique till now, try to practice it at least on this day. You can also practice the other special technique corresponding to Amavasya on this day. (Refer to the Special days of August)
22nd September — Equinox
Equinox is when the Sun is directly over the Equator. This alignment facilitates special energies to flow to our Earth. It will be a very energetic day and many individuals may find it a little tough or difficult. Be patient and persevere.
We can practice the following technique to connect to the special energies which will help us to open up further to Light and also assist in coping up the ongoing Pralaya processes.
Duration – 1 hour
Imagine very light but bright Blue Light coming from above. Allow this to fill your entire physical body first. Then imagine the Light to fill all the cells and then all the naadis in your system.
Then imagine the Light to fill all the seven chakras and imagine the Chakras to begin rotating in a clockwise direction.
Keep experiencing the flow of the energies throughout the Meditation and repeat the mantra “Om” silently.
