Mantra of Navgraha

Mantra of Navgraha

I give below, for the benefit of devotees, the navagraha sthothras which when recited daily, will protect the devotee from the evils of malefic planets. The English translations are given at the end.

Javaa Kusum Sankaasham Kashyapeyam Maha Dhyutim
Tamo Arim Sarv Paapghnam Pranato-smi Divakaram

Dadhi Shankha Tushaa -rabham Khseero Darnava Sambhavam
Namaami Shashinam Somam Shambhor Mukut Bhooshanam

Dharanee Garbha Sambhootam Vidyut Kaanti Sam-prabham
Kumaram Shakti Hastam Tam Mangalam Pranamamyam Ham

Priyangu Kalika Shyaamam Roopena Pratimam Budham
Soumyam Soumya Guno Petam Tam Budham Pranamamyam Ham

Deva-naam cha Rishi Naam cha Gurum kaanchan Sambhavam
Buddhi Bhootam Trilokesham Tam Namaami Brihaspatim

Him Kundaa Mrina-laabham Daitya-naam Paramam Gurum
Sarv Shastra Pravaktaaram Bhargavem Pranamaamyam Ham

Neelanjan Samaabhasam Ravi Putram Yama agrajam

Budha-scha Guru-s-cha Shukra Shani Rahu Ketavah Kuruvantu Sarve
Mam Suprabhatam


Sun (Soorya-Ravi)

I pray to the Sun, the day-maker, destroyer of all sins, the enemy of darkness, of great brilliance, the descendent of Kaashyapa, the one who shines like the japaa flower.

Moon (Chandra)

I pray to the Moon who shines coolly like curds or a white shell, who arose from the ocean of milk, who has a hare on him, Soma, who is the ornament of Shiva's hair.

Mars (Kuja -Ankarakan)

I pray to Mars, born of Earth, who shines with the same brilliance as lightning, the young man who carries a spear.

Mercury (Budhan)

I pray to Mercury, dark like the bud of millet, of unequalled beauty, gentle and agreeable.

Jupiter (Guru)

I pray to Jupiter, the teacher of gods and rishis, intellect incarnate, lord of the three worlds.

Venus (Sukran)

I pray to Venus, the utimate preceptor of demons, promulgator of all learning, he who shines like the fiber of snow-white jasmine.

Saturn (Sani)

I pray to Saturn, the slow moving, born of Shade and Sun, the elder brother of Yama, the offspring of Sun, he who has the appearance of black collyrium.


I pray to Rahu, having half a body, of great bravery, the eclipser of the Moon and the Sun, born of Simhikaa.


I pray to Ketu, who has the appearance of Palaasha flower, the head of stars and planets, fierce and terrifying.

Thanks to Madhuri

Contemplative Questions

Here is a set of questions that would provoke you and put you through some soul searching. They are not about religion nor about ethics. They are merely about you.

They are not meant to serve as solutions nor are they meant to lead you anywhere. These questions are meant to serve as tools to discovering yourself.

1) Do you perceive the Presence of a benevolent force guiding, protecting and shaping your life? What name do you give that Presence? When did you best feel this Presence?

2) What is your opinion of God? Is your opinion drawn from religion, books, parents and or your personal experience of life?

3) Do you pray? Do they get answered? How often?

4) Do you think it is possible to relate to the Divine? What relationship would you opt?

5) Here is a story for you - Two fierce enemies once did a penance to placate god and receive boons vying with each other. God appeared to the first man and asked what he wanted. He said "give me twice of whatever you give my enemy". Then God appeared to the second one. Even before God could say anything he asked, "God, would you please tell me what my enemy asked for? On knowing his prayer request, he said, "then God, blind me in one eye."
Now what would you wish for yourself, your best friend and your worst enemy if God gave you a chance?

6) Have you ever experienced a coincidence or chance that seems to have involved so many people and factors that you can't stop wondering if a mastermind was behind this operation? If yes, do you savour the experience often and have you shared it with someone close to you?
