The Navagraha or 9 planets, their transits, and positions in the birth chart form the basis of Vedic Astrology. The Navagraha include Surya (Sun), Chandra (Moon), Mangala (Mars), Budha (Mercury), Brihaspati (Jupiter), Shukra (Venus), Shani (Saturn), and the shadow planets - Rahu and Ketu. Our ancient sages found that the careful study of these planets can reveal the past, present and future of any individual and accordingly, designed the system of Vedic Astrology.

Each of these planets has its own unique personality and characteristics. They can individually, and in combination with one or more planets, can give positive or adverse impact depending on their positioning at the time of birth of an individual, and on their subsequent transit during the individual’s life. Navagraha Stotram is a sacred hymn dedicated to these 9 planets. Chanting or listening to this mantra can help reduce the adverse effects of Navagraha and increase their positive blessings.

Navagraha Mantra – Sacred Tool To Gain Positive Planetary Blessings

Mantras are powerful incantations packed with the immense spiritual energy that can fill your aura with peace and positivity. There are specific guidelines as to how a mantra should be chanted, and when to chant so these mantras can create vibrations that can bring peace and happiness in life.

Navagraha Mantras consist of nine sacred hymns, each of which is dedicated to one of the Navagrahas. These simple, single-line mantras are chanted to propitiate the 9 powerful planets. Chanting these hymns with devotion can help in getting various benefits from the auspicious and favorably placed planets; and in reducing the adverse effects of the inauspicious and unfavorably placed ones.

A planet governs every day of the week and it is believed that the mantra addressed to a planet should be recited on the day dedicated to that planet for optimal results. For instance, Surya Mantra can be chanted on Sundays, Chandra Mantra on Mondays and so on. Rahu and Ketu do not have any days dedicated to them. However, one can chant Rahu Mantra on Saturdays and Ketu Mantra on Tuesdays.
