All of us undergo good and bad times in our life. When things do not go as per our wish, there is a high probability that these are caused by planets. .Planets at the time of birth indicate , the problems which are likely to be caused by absence of wealth, bad married life, lack of children and many other such aspects. Also the period in our life which a particular planet controls our life is called Dasa of that planet. These dasas again determine the bad and good periods of our life depending on the nature of the planet and its strength. After this the planets keep on travelling in their course. When these reach particular houses , they also lead to problems. A well trained astrologer would be able to find out which planet (s) caused a particular problem at a particular time. Once we know this information , astrologers suggest various methods to get rid of these problems or lessen the impact of these problems like prayers, homas , Yanthras(Thalisman) , gems , pilgrimages to certain temples etc. One of these is the direct prayers to the planets. Over years I have collected many such prayers and have translated them. I am listing all of them here .
1.Navagrahas (nine planets)
These prayers are addressed to all the nine planets and are chanted daily so that problems caused by all of the planets are avoided and for beseeching all the planets to shower their grace on us.
