ॐ वृषभं चर्षणीनां विश्वरूपमदाभ्यम्। बृहस्पतिं वरेण्यम्॥

In jyotiṣa there is a saying that when Jupiter protects there is none that can destroy. Jupiter brings in the great mantra powers into the fifth bhāva and dharma into the ninth bhāva. He is the ‘jīva graha’ responsible for bringing life into the various bodies. The Brahma Yamala lists various navagraha kavacha (protection) stotra which have the best eighteen names of each of the graha.

The eighteen names of Jupiter relate to eighteen body parts starting from the top of head (śiras). One method uses this formula: Each name associates with two drekkāṇa reckoned from lagna in the horoscope.

1 bṛhaspati
2 guru
3 suraguru
4 abhīṣṭadāyaka
5 surācārya
6 vedapāraga
7 sarvajña
8 devatāguru
9 aṅgirāsa
10 śubhaprada
11 vāgīśa
12 śubhalakṣaṇa
13 devaguru
14 sukhaprada
15 jagadvandya
16 vākpati
17 surācāryo
18 viśvātma

However, the stotra clearly spells out the importance of the second name ‘guru’ as this can be used all the time to protect every part. The simple mantra for protection from all evils is
ॐ गुरवे नमः | om gurave namaḥ

Illustration: Lagna 14° Pisces is in 2nd drekkāṇa – start count from here
Jupiter in 26° Pisces = 3rd drekkāṇa of Pisces
Counting from Lagna to Jupiter we have ‘2’ or Jupiter is in 2nd drekkāṇa. The name obtained from the list is the first name ‘bṛhaspati’. Native should do the mantra
ॐ गां श्रीं क्लीं बृहस्पतये नमः
om gāṁ śrīṁ klīṁ bṛhaspataye namaḥ

In our tradition we use the gaM bīja for Ganesa and gaaM for Guru and Gita.
