Today is Vishnupati!

Vishupati happens just 4 times a year. Astrologically, this is the day on which the Sun enters one of the fixed signs: Aquarius, Leo, Scorpio or Taurus. The first Vishnupati in this Vedic year is today–May 14th–as the Sun transits into Taurus. The energy of Vishnu, the great preserver or the one who sustains the universe, becomes highly charged and readily available.

Honoring Lord Vishnu on this day and accessing this energy can bring many gains. Financial and material energies on the earth plane are at their strongest. Since this divine time period occurs only once every three months and lasts around 9 hours (01:00PM PST to 10:00PM PST), it is the most sought-after occasion for fast removal of mental impurities, quick spiritual evolution, and enhanced material gains.

The word ‘Vishnu’ means ‘enter into’, hence Lord Vishnu is the One who pervades the entire Universe. He is the Preserver God among the Trinity, and also known as the God of Wealth. Vishnu symbolizes energy of maintenance and sustenance. Praying to Him during Vishnupati grants you everything you need for your welfare on this planet. Also, praying to Vishnu’s wife Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth & Abundance, can prove to be very beneficial.

Today’s action step:
Between the hours of 1:00pm – 10:00pm PST (4:00PM-1:00AM EST) today, meditate on & visualize expansion of your financial, material & spiritual wealth. During your meditation, work with the following two mantras for Vishnu & Lakshmi:

Aum Narayanaye Vidmahe
Vasudavaye Dhimahi
Tanno Vishnu Prachodayat

Om Shreem Maha Lakshmiyei Swaha

The world is infinitely abundant. Today is a perfect day to reflect on your current successes, and expanding your future successes. May your environment materialize into that which you seek!

happy chanting!
