Prayers addressed to nine planets

Dear Friends,
      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.
