Throw the Silk Shawl in the Fire
Appayya Dikshitar was doing the sacred fire ritual on behalf of a Chola King.
The King in appreciation for the Homam (fire ritual) done by the priest, gave the latter a Silk Shawl.
While offering Ghee, and other stuff to the sacred fire as part of the ritual, the Dikshitar offered the silk shawl too.
Hearing about this, the King got enraged and went to the temple to meet the Dikshitar. There he found the silk shawl was adorning the main idol of the temple.
When the Dikshitar was quizzed about this he said, “You sincerely offered the shawl to me. I too offered it to the god with sincerity. For the same reasons, the god has accepted our offerings in full. This is the significance of the incident”.
Offer Everything to the Silver Triangle
Let us offer everything to the Silver Triangle as it is nothing but the Homa Kundam, where we offer our memories in the form of fears, desires, expectations, frustrations etc.
By this act of surrendering we achieve what we want.
Surrendering – Why and How?
When you are obsessed with worry and fear you are breaking the quantum rules. Your fear will manifest the one which you don’t want, instead of getting what you want.
Desire something. Quieten your mind, relax and release it to the divine field.
Approaching anything with the calm and relaxed mind has got better chance of getting what we want.
That is where the surrendering attitude enters. By surrendering the desire to the divine field, you accept what the divine offers. Surrendering makes you think that whatever divine offer is good for me.
Know that you cannot change anything with your will. To make things happen your will and divine will should unite.
The link is the surrendering attitude.
Surrendering is Samarpanam. Samarpanam is keeping all our words, prayers and actions at the feet of Divine with the intention to accept whatever he offers.

Doors to Heaven and Hell
The following story is an adaptation of a parable of Sri Ramakrishna.
Suresh and Velu were good friends. One evening while walking through the streets, they passed by an auditorium.
From a banner displayed outside, they learnt that a discourse on the Bhagavatham by a renowned Swamiji was taking place at that venue.
Suresh turned to Velu and said “Hey, let us go in and listen to him”.
Velu shook his head and said, “Have you heard of a call-girl who has just moved into our town? I would like to go there”.
Suresh’s jaw dropped in shock. He burst out to Velu, “Are you out of your mind? Visiting a prostitute indeed! What you are contemplating is a sin!”
Suresh entered the auditorium to listen to the lecture, while Velu wended his way to meet the prostitute.
Different doors lead to unexpected exits
The Swamiji spoke for an hour and a half and he really excelled himself.
From the very beginning Suresh’s mind was playing truant. His mind kept conjuring up lurid images of Velu and the prostitute.
The net result was that not even a single word of the discourse failed to register in his mind.
At the same time, Velu’s mind, while he was with the prostitute, was overwhelmed by self-disgust.
He thought to himself “Oh! What a miserable wretch I am! Why did I allow my mind to lead me into temptation? Why did I have to satisfy my curiosity?
“Oh! How lucky Suresh is! He must be sitting in the auditorium listening to the fascinating tales of Krishna. I can actually picture what it would be like”.
In this vein, his thoughts ran on constantly.
Heaven and Hell are due to our mind
In course of time, the two friends died and Suresh was shocked to find himself in hell while his friend Velu was in heaven.
Bewildered and a little angry, he asked God “Is this some joke? Our positions have been switched. Surely I deserve to be in Heaven and Velu in hell. After all when I was sitting devoutly in the discourse, he was dallying with a prostitute!”
God smiled, shook his head and said “Son, I agree you were present at the discourse when your friend was with the prostitute. But important question is where your respective minds were?”
Physically Present Mentally Absent
If one is physically present but mentally somewhere, the flower remedies ROCK WATER and CHESTNUT BUD can correct this.
It is the mind which is doing the karma; whether the body follows the mind or not, it is the working of the mind which is concerned with all our action (Karma).

Healing connection with Paramacharya
Last weekend, I was cleaning my attic. I happened to find the photograph of Paramacharya Chandrashekarendra Saraswati. It showed his devotees doing Kanaga Abhishekam on him. It is a prayer to seek wealth and welfare.
The photo was kept unclean. So, I felt bad and send Reiki to Paramacharya using the Silver Triangle as a sign of apology and prayer.
I didn’t know what the message is for me here, because I believe strongly that divine gives us messages and guidance through many forms.
So, I simply prayed to Paramacharya, seeking whatever healing required by me, my family, and my patients.
Connection between the lost child and her parents
Only last month, I read an article about him in a Tamil Newspaper.
The story goes like this.
An old couple approached Paramacharya. They were childless and wanted to do something back to the society – either in the form of taking care of expenses of some poor girl (as marriage expenses are taken care of by the brides’ family in this part of the world) or adopt a child. Therefore they sought his guidance.
Paramacharya asked them to contact the poor family waiting to meet him outside his abode. The old couple had a daughter who was about to get married and were looking for some financial help to get their daughter married.
When enquired about their daughter, the daughter’s father told the old couple that they found the girl in a railway station about 15 years back.
What was surprising was that the girl was nothing but the daughter of the old couple themselves. The man is her father and the lady was her step-mother.
It is his daughter from his first marriage. After, his first wife passed away, he married his current wife. On her insistence, he left the daughter in a railway station that is far away from their home, so that she will be lost from their lives. And, he never had a child through his second marriage.
The girl was picked up by the poor couple, who were childless themselves and took care of her from then.
How Paramacharya did know this? Nobody knew that fact. But, somehow he connected the abandoned daughter with her legal parents.
Connection with right gynecologist
Kala was about to have her second child. She has major complications and couldn’t find a solution to fix them. Unfortunately, each doctor she consulted had given her different warnings, which confused her further. So she was worried and said she had to meet me immediately.
The time she came to see me, a couple was waiting for me to consult me for the first time. When I found out that the lady is gynecologist, I asked her to help Kala. The doctor obliged to see Kala immediately and gave the right consultation that was the need for the hour.
The doctor refused to take any money as she felt that only divine has made her to come to my clinic and meet Kala. I insisted that she take 200 rupees as a token of energy exchange.
However, I told her to keep it with her and not spend it, as I have understood the message from divine – here Paramacharya, that divine is offering to the doctor, a gift of wealth and welfare in the form of 200 rupees.
What is the connection with Reiki past healing and Saints?
Whenever you want to seek the guidance and blessings of Saints and Sages, or Gods for that matter, you put them in the altar in the form of silver triangle and do your prayers by drawing Reiki symbols.
You will be able to receive their grace and rays of love from them.
While doing the prayer, make an affirmation, “I OPEN to GRACE and RAYS of LIGHT and LOVE of …. (NAME of the SAINT)”

By-Pass Negative Operations
My aunt was about to go through a by-pass surgery. From the moment I heard about it, I had a sense of apprehension that I had never felt before about surgical operations and death.
Initially, I thought this could be an intuition. Then I realized, maybe I was reliving my mother’s death. My mother had passed away after undergoing an operation to remove her uterus.
Based on the instructions from Naran, I put all my fears about operations into the silver triangle. I did the other healing steps too over a week.
What followed was very touching…
The operation was successful of course. But it was sponsored by my cousin instead of my uncle – who is a more self-respecting person. Firstly, the latter received the money with grace from his son.
Secondly, the operation was done by the best team in the hospital due to some unforeseen circumstances.
Thirdly, even though, my cousin’s house was just opposite to his parents, they had never stayed there even once. They had visited his house only for five times during the whole period of 20 years of his stay in that house, which is strange considering the practices followed in this part of the world.
I felt this is important as my cousin was not happy about that and mentioned to me about it a couple of months back. Now to the relief of my cousin, his parents had gracefully accepted his help and support.
If somebody would have asked anybody in our family, whether my cousin’s parents would be staying in my cousin’s house in order to recuperate, all of us would have univocally said, “No way”.
In fact, my uncle was planning to move away from his children in a fit of anger a couple of months ago.
Instead, now everything happened with the touch of a divine. I definitely think the past-life healing has helped to create such a situation.
In the past-life healing workshop Naran told us…
If we heal the deceased properly then they will appear in our dream.
In fact, I did the healing not only for my mother, but for my other two aunts who had passed away after afflicted by cancer.
One of them appeared in my dream and pointed my attention to another aunt, who had died because of poor handling of her pregnancy and developed cancer in Uterus for the same reason.
Please note here, my mother also died due to same reason. In fact, all the three of them had died due to cancer.
The story didn’t end here…
I thought there has to be a connection here – one aunt pointing to another aunt. I feared, like the latter, my friend Poornima who was expecting in another two week’s time might have some problems too. The reason for the fear she had done several operations in the past. So, I thought she might have a difficult delivery like my aunt.
So the very next day, I called up Poornima to check upon her. She didn’t pick the phone as she was undergoing a cesarean at the same time. The doctors attending to her had felt that it was safe to operate on her immediately. She gave birth to a son after the operation was successfully preponed.
I see some connection here too – a connection pointed to me by my aunt.
Many thanks to my aunts, my mother, Reiki and Naran for a couple successful operations!!!
