    This Blog is an Humble attempt to spread the Divine Message of Pujjya BapuJi & Dedicated at the Lotus feets SHRI CHARANKAMAL Of PARAM PUJYA GURUJI SANT SHRI ASARAM JI BAPU VishwaGuru Of the Age.

    The essence of Bharata lies in Her culture of Self-realization. ParamAtman is not seen as something apart, but as our very essence, the one True Self that resides in the heart of us all. Raising ourselves from ordinary individuals to the heights of Supreme Consciousness is only possible with the guidance of one who is already in that transcendent state. Such a one is called a Satguru, a True Yogi, as in one who has gained mastery over the mind, one who is beyond the mind.

    From ancient times up to the present day, an unbroken succession of Self-realized Saints have incarnated in the Land of Yogis & Saints Bharata to lead seekers of Truth to the ultimate reality.

Navagraha Stotra Mala For Daily Recital

1. Surya [Ravi] 

Japaakusuma Samkaasham kaashyapeyam Mahadhyuthim ! 
Tamorim Sarva Paapagni Pranathosmi Divaakaram !! 

[I bow down to the Sun god, who is the cause of the day-break, who dispels all darkness, who destrorys all sins, who is matchless in brilliance, who is the son of Kashyapa and who is as red as the Japa Kusuma Flower]

Múla Mantra

Ōm ghrņi sūrya āditiyom | 

Aśva dhvajāya vidmahe pāśa hastāya dhīmahi |
Tanno sūrya pracōdayāt ||

The sun is resplendent in brilliance (Mahadyuti). He is as red as the (Japakusuma) red hibiscus flower. The Sun is the dispeller of darkness (Tamorim) external and internal. He is the invigorator and inspirer of intelligence. Sin is said to be the agitation and worry that nags the mind as a result of an action done against the dignity of one’s own self. Surya gives light and knowledge and burn down the results of wrong acts. Hence he is called Sarvapapagnam. He is also known as the lord of the day (Divakaram).
Known as Aditya, he is the eldest son of Kasyapa. He is the life-giving force. It is He who supports all life by his rays of light and energy. He is the dynamic principle behind all colors, tints and hues. When he rises in the sky He is blood red in complexion and dispels all darkness. Those who worship Him find their inertia and torpor getting destroyed.
Surya is said to be inviolable, imperishable and eternal. He represents eternity in the midst of changes, and also the indivisible principle in the midst of disintegrating worlds.

Surya must always be placed in the center of the planets, facing east, with the other Grahas fixed round him. His chariot has one wheel, is drawn by seven horses and has Aruna as the charioteer.

2. Chandra 

Dadhishamkha Trrisharambham ksheero Daarnava Sambhavam ! 
Namaami Shashinam somam shambormukuta bhooshanam !! 

[I bow down to the Moon whose hue resembles the hue of curds, a conch and the color of snow. I bow down to the one who sprang out from the milky ocean (at the time of the churning) I bow down to one who beautifies and adorns the crest of Siva, and who is of the form of nectar.]

Múla Mantra
Ōm Śrīm Hrīm ham cam candrāya namah: |

Padmadhvajāya vidmahe hemarūpāya dhīmahi |
Tanno sōma pracodayāt ||

Puranas claim that Chandra is the son of Atri and Anusuya. He is sometimes said to be the son of Dharma. He sprang from the milky ocean when it was churned by the Gods and Asuras. Chandra is the guardian of the sacrifices, penances and asterisms. He is said to be the sole Lord of the Herbal kingdom. It is the Moon that gives to matter the principle of fermentation. The Purusha Sukta mentions Chandra as having come out of the mind of the primeval Purusha. Chandra has the power of heal all diseases. Chandra has medicinal powers. Several ayurvedic medicines are exposed to the Moon in the nights to give a greater potency to them. Grains exposed to the Moon when sown and grown give a grater yield. He also has a closed connection to the human mind.

Chandra is said to have wed the twenty-seven daughters of Rishi Daksha. The twenty seven daughters are the twenty seven lunar asterisms in the Hindu pantheon. Story goes that Chandra’s attention to Rohini, one of the twenty-seven, was so much that the remaining daughters complained to Daksha, who in turn cursed Chandra. On appeal of the daughters the curse was modified. Chandra is said to have performed the Rajasuya sacrificed and became powerful. The chariot of Chandra has three wheels and is drawn by ten horses, which represent the ten sense organs.

Dharaneegarbha Sambootham Vidhyath Kaanthi Sama prabham !
Kumaaram Shaktihastham cha mangalam Pranamaamyaham !!

Múla Mantra
Aim hmoum srim dram gam grahadhipataye bhoumatya swah |

VīradhvajAya Vidmahe Vighnahastāya dhīmahi |
Tanno bhouma pracōdayat ||

Angaraka, otherwise known as Mangala, is also known as Karthikeya, the God of war. He is the son of Siva and Earth. As the son of the Earth he is called Angaraka, Bhauma and Bhumiputra. He is also known as Gananolmukha (Torch of the sky). Mangala is red in colour (Lohita). He is the manifestation of the powers of spying. Hence he is called Chara. He is also said to be the patron of debtors (Rinantaka). Though he is born of the Earth he is the one who constantly vitalizes the Earth charging it from time to time. His intelligence and sagacity are of very high order. Mangala always brings auspiciousness. Siva’s essence of effulgence was cast into the fire and it was afterward received by the Ganges. the resulting outcome was Karthikeya. He has six heads, hence known as Shanmukha. He is the leader of the Siddhas and is also the commander of the forces of the gods. It is also said that astrology originated from Him. 

4. Budha 

Priyam gukalikaashyaamam Rupenaam prathimam budham ! 
Saumyam Saumya gunor petham tham Budham pranamaamyaham !! 

[I bow down to Budha who is dark and black like the black tulip, matches in form and appearance, extraordinarily intelligent and wise, being the son of Soma and endowed with sweet and pleasing auspicious qualities]

Múla Mantra

He has attained his status only after undergoing a lot of austerities. He has the star Avitam as his birth star. His chariot has four horses yoked to it. He married Ilai the daughter of Manu and became the father of the Pururavas. He is also said to be the Lord of the fifth canto of the Rig Veda. He is the Lord of wisdom granting intelligence, presence of mind and wit to his devotees. He has a very enchanting form and is almost a black beauty. Legend goes that his beauty made both Soma and Brihaspathi claim him as their son. 

5. Guru 

Devaanaam cha Hrisheenaam cha gurum kanchana Sannibham 
Budhibhootham trilokesham tham namaami Brihaspatheem !! 

[I bow down to Brihaspathi who is the teacher of Gods and Sages, who is resplendent and lustrous as burnished gold, who is endowed with a lot of wisdom and who is the lord of the three worlds]

Múla Mantra
Ōm Hrīm Śrīm Blīm āim Gloum Grhādhipataye brhaspataye vim ta aim ta swahā |
