1 You are the mys­tic sounds Om and Hrim. You are truth and the immutable real­ity. You have con­quered the gunas—nature, and yet are adored for your gunas—your virtues. Since I do not wor­ship your holy feet, capa­ble of destroy­ing all delu­sion and full of com­pas­sion, with long­ing day and night, there­fore, O friend of the lowly, you are my only refuge.

2 Devo­tion, divine qual­i­ties, and wor­ship, which break the bonds of the world, are indeed suf­fi­cient to take one to the high­est truth. But though I utter these words with my lips, they find no echo in my heart. There­fore, O friend of the lowly, you are my only refuge.

3 They quickly tran­scend the fire of this world who are devoted to you; all their desires are ful­filled in you, O Rama­kri­shna, who are the path to truth. Your feet, like nec­tar to mor­tal beings, quell the waves of death. There­fore, O friend of the lowly, you are my only refuge.

4 O Lord, your name, end­ing in “shna”, is aus­pi­cious and pure. It destroys all taint and turns evil into virtue. O sole goal of all the worlds, as I have no place to go for shel­ter, there­fore, O friend of the lowly, you are my only refuge

0 Salu­ta­tions to you, O Rama­kri­shna, the estab­lisher of dharma, the embod­i­ment of all reli­gions, and the paragon of avataras.
Om, salu­ta­tions to Bha­ga­van Sri Rama­kri­shna, salu­ta­tions again and again.

ramakrishnaThe brilliance of Swami Vivekananda is seen in providing us with the three vital mantra for praying to Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa. Such a stotra which has a mantra hidden inside is called ‘Mantra Garbha Stotra’. The mantra is derived by taking the FIRST SYLLABLE of every line of the four stanza, except the last line which is an offering

Notes

These graha mantras should be done under guidance of an able Jyotisa Guru. The mantras of Ad and Pratyadi devata are standard mantra of the Veda.

It is interesting to note that the Sun and Jupiter are catuskona (square) with four bija each while Saturn is an exception with two bija forming a rekha (line) like the Lakshman rekha which should not be crossed else suffering is sure to follow. The Sun, Jupiter and Saturn mantras end with नमः (namaḥ). The Adi devata is worshipped on the top and Pratyadi devata is worshipped on the bottom

Also note that the remaining six planets are in two groups of three each – (a) Moon, Mars and Mercury forming trikona (trine) and (b) Venus, Rahu and Ketu in satkona (hexangle polygon). These mantras end with स्वाहा (svāhā). The Adi devata is worshipped on the left and Pratyadi devata is worshipped on the right

Bear in mind that the adi and pratyadi devata are reversed in most cases as compared to standard navagraha. This is used for reversing and ending karma

dakshinamurti_shiva_pj61A childhood habit that has always stood the test of time, is the Guru Vandana. This was learnt at a young age and one does not need any ritual, time nor place to recite it. However, we have done this everyday – loudly when younger and silently when older. Hope you all benefit from this. All mantras and remedies start working, no matter how bad the dasha or evil the transit, Gurudeva always makes things work for the better. Kindly forgive the typo’s and email me srath@srath.com for corrections. I had learnt this in the odiya language and this is the nearest sanskrit that I get.

radha-and-krishna-beneath-kadamba-tree-BM20_lRadha (Sanskrit: राधा, Rādhā), also called Rādhikā, Radharani and Radhika-rani, is almost always depicted alongside Krishna and features prominently within the theology of today’s Vallabha, Utkaliya and Gaudiya Vaishnava sects, which regards Radha as the original Goddess or Shakti. Radha is also the principal god of worship in the Nimbarka Sampradaya, as Nimbarka, the founder of the tradition, declared that Radha and Krishna together constitute the absolute truth.
Please note that Radha is not mentioned anywhere in books like Bhagavata Purana,Vishnu Purana, Harivamsha or Mahabharata. This has led many to believe that character of Radha was added later into the story of Krishna. Radha’s relationship with Krishna is given in detail within texts such as the Brahma Vaivarta Purana, Garga Samhita and Brihad Gautamiya Tantra.
Radha is the most important gopi in Rās-Lilā 1devotional dance like done by Odisi or Sufi and other spiritual dancers with Lord Krishna. Rādha is often referred to as Rādhārānī or “Rādhikā” especially in mantra, prefixed with the respectful term ‘Srimati’ in speech, by devout followers. More info at Wiki

Astakshari Mantras
Astakshari mantra are used for various purposes of removal of suffering related to emotions like loneliness due to separation etc.
The first mantra is a prayer to “Rādhikā” for the benediction of “Sri” or “Shreyas”.
राधिकायै श्रेयं नमः॥
rādhikāyai śreyaṁ namaḥ
The second mantra is for protection of one’s innocence and purity from the various evils and torments that life shows. The particular form of “Rādhikā” is “Gundicha” of Jagannath Puri.
श्री राधे शरणं मम॥
śrī rādhe śaraṇaṁ mama

Yoga Mantra
This mantra is for the yoga of Kṛṣṇa and Rādhikā called Rādha-Kṛṣṇa prema denoted by the bīja ह्रीं (hrīṁ). We shall be posting the teachings of Sri Achyutananda in this regard.

Beejakshara mantra

Sri Ganapati is the elephant headed son of Sri Shiva, belonging to the divine family that delivers the soul from darkness and sin, the specific function of Sri Ganapati is to teach and drive away ignorance (avidhya). He is represented by Ketu, the significator of emancipation from all kinds of bondage including rebirth.
The Beejakshara of Sri Ganapati is ‘gaM’
Bīja mantra: गं (gaṁ) which is also called the Gītā bīja (for Srimad Bhagavat Gītā) by those learned in mantra śāstra. This is the starter of everything and just like the Bhagavat Gītā, provides the power to assimilate all knowledge.

The word akṣobhya [also written akshobhya] means immovable or imperturbable and is the opposite of kṣobha which means shaking, agitation and disturbance, tossing, trembling or emotional[1]. Thus akṣobhya refers to that state of perfect calmness achieved as a result of perfect knowledge.

Ṣaḍākṣarī Mantra

In the Buddhist tradition, he is one of the five transcendent (tathāgata) buddhas. Tathāgata refers to the principal lord of a Buddha clan (there are five such lineages). Akṣobhya is lord of the vajra[2] lineage (or Vajrāyana Buddhism). Just like the lord of the eastern direction Indra[3] (Śakra), he rides an elephant. His right hand is in the damana (suppression) or bhūmi sparsa (earth touching) mudrā[4] which causes the suppression (of ignorance, anger, emotion and other ṣaḍripu) with the damana bīja (huṁ). The left hand is in jñāna mudrā which symbolises perfect knowledge and has the tāra bīja (om). Thus, the simplest mantra read from the left to the right hand would be ‘jñana bīja’ + ‘name in long expression’ + ‘damana bīja’ = om akṣhyobhyāya huṁ.
ॐ अक्षोभाय हुं
om akṣobhāya huṁ

Dhyāni Buddhas

As the name implies, dhāni refers to the concentration and focus that leads to wisdom. The appearance of Vairocana, the master of all objects of knowledge, is the symbolic representation of all knowledge as a complete day or a complete circle. Thereafter quadripartition of knowledge occurred in two stages. In the first stage, the knowledge was divided into two by Vajrasattva Akṣobhya (representing wisdom ‘like a mirror’), in the East and Amitābha (representing discriminative wisdom or compassion), in the West. In the second stage, this was further divided by Ratnasambhava (representing the wisdom of equanimity – beauty, or spiritual riches) in the South and Amoghasiddhi (representing the wisdom of ‘he who can accomplish all things’ – power through activity) in the North.

[1] Monier Williams Sanskrit Dictionary

[2] m. hard or mighty and refers to the thunderbolt or diamond sceptre (esp. that of Indra, said to have been formed out of the bones of the ṛṣi Dadhīcī and shaped like a circular discus or a cross or zigzag; it is a mythical weapon destructive of spells and charms, N. of the 15th of the 27 Yogas corresponding to śrāvaṇa nakṣatra. The śrāvaṇa month refers to the rainy season when the bow of Indra (rainbow) and vajra (thunder) is seen in the sky.

[3] Both in Hindu and Buddhist tantra, Indra is the guardian of the eastern direction (lokapāla). He rides a white elephant called airāvata.

[4] Gesture of hand and fingers having vital spiritual symbolism and signification

Sri Agni is the adhidevata of the Sun and is the most revered deity of the agnihotri’s and brahmins of the vedic period. He has two wives named ‘Svaha’ and ‘Svadha’ who carry the offerings made by the devotees into the holoy fire (Agni devata) to the Gods and manes respectively. The three lokas are worshipped with the bija mantras ” OM bhu, Bhuva, Svah” respectively. Thus the offerings to the gods must end with the word Svaha whereas those to the manes ends with the word Svadha.

Bhu refers to this terrestrial plane or the earth (Agni is the Lord of the Bhu loka); Bhuva refers to the solar system (Surya is the Lord of the Bhuva loka) and Svah refers to the universe beyond (Indra is the Lord of the heavens). Thus, in this earthly plane it is necessary to worship agni for a good life and energy.

garuda02
The Garuḍa Purāṇa lists some garuḍa-mṛtyu-rakṣa mantra in the following śloka.

ॐ अमृतेश्वर ॐ भैरवाय नमः।
एवं ॐ जुं हंसः सूर्याय नमः॥ १।१८।१९॥
om amṛteśvara om bhairavāya namaḥ |
evaṁ om juṁ haṁsaḥ sūryāya namaḥ || 1|18|19 ||

Step-1: The first step to strengthen the Lagna with the first mantra. This is common for everyone and firmly establishes the oṁkāra on the ascendant.

ॐ अमृतेश्वर ॐ भैरवाय नमः।
om amṛteśvara om bhairavāya namaḥ
MantraAdvanced

Step-2: Once this is done then all evils are under check and the second mantra is to be used to protect the soul. The second mantra is a combination of the Kahola ṛṣi Mṛtyuṅjaya bīja mantra ‘om juṁ saḥ’ and the mantra for chara ātmakāraka. The mantra takes the form ‘om juṁ haṁsaḥ sūryāya namaḥ’ for one who is born with Sun as chara ātmakāraka.

एवं शिवाय कृष्णाय ब्रह्मणे च गणाय च।
चण्डिकायै सरस्वत्यै महालक्ष्मादि पूजयेत्॥ १।१८।२०॥
evaṁ śivāya kṛṣṇāya brahmaṇe ca gaṇāya ca |
caṇḍikāyai sarasvatyai mahālakṣmādi pūjayet || 1|18|20 ||

For other planets as chara ātmakāraka another seven deities have been mentioned in the Garuḍa Purāṇa. The eight specifically mentioned for eight chara ātmakāraka are – Sūrya, Śiva, Kṛṣṇa, Gaṇa (Gaṇeśa), Brahma, Caṇḍīkā, Sarasvatī and Lakṣmī. The mantras are listed below. It is important that the correct mantra should be chosen for the planet which is chara ātmakāraka. These mantra remove every poison in the system and restore health.

Sun as Ātmakāraka
ॐ जुं हंसः सूर्याय नमः।
om juṁ haṁsaḥ sūryāya namaḥ|

Jupiter as Ātmakāraka
ॐ जुं हंसः शिवाय नमः।
om juṁ haṁsaḥ śivāya namaḥ|

Mercury as Ātmakāraka
ॐ जुं हंसः कृष्णाय नमः।
om juṁ haṁsaḥ kṛṣṇāya namaḥ|

Saturn as Ātmakāraka
ॐ जुं हंसः ब्रह्मणे नमः।
om juṁ haṁsaḥ brahmaṇe namaḥ|

Mars as Ātmakāraka
ॐ जुं हंसः गणाय नमः।
om juṁ haṁsaḥ gaṇāya namaḥ|

Rāhu as Ātmakāraka
ॐ जुं हंसः चण्डिकायै नमः।
om juṁ haṁsaḥ caṇḍikāyai namaḥ|

Moon as Ātmakāraka
ॐ जुं हंसः सरस्वत्यै नमः।
om juṁ haṁsaḥ sarasvatyai namaḥ|

Venus as Ātmakāraka
ॐ जुं हंसः महालक्ष्म्यै नमः।
om juṁ haṁsaḥ mahālakṣmyai namaḥ|

Further refinement of the mantra has been allowed with the use of the word ‘ādi’ in ‘mahālakṣmādi’ meaning that very subtle and specific forms can be deciphered from the chart.

Illustration:
karakamsa_sr

Saturn is the chara ātmakāraka in this chart and the regular mantra should have been the one for Brahma, the deity of Saturn (Parāśara). However, we can take into consideration the fact that Saturn is also the dispositor of the natal Moon and becomes śubhapati (Moon dispositor) for the chart. This special status of the śubhapati becoming ātmakāraka is called ‘Kevala’ (Jaimini Upadeśa). The particular form of Brāhmaṇa transforms to Atri (Maharṣi – sire of the Moon) and the mantra transforms as follows –

Saturn as Kevala Ātmakāraka

ॐ जुं हंसः अत्रिब्रह्मणे नमः।
om juṁ haṁsaḥ atribrahmaṇe namaḥ

However, in this chart, a second level transformation has occurred as the ātmakāraka planet is also placed in its own sign. The devatā is no longer considered from the graha Saturn (Brahma) but instead from the vāyu tattva (Parama Śiva). To this add the fact of the Moon being disposited by Saturn and the specific subtle form is a lunar form – Śrī Somanāth Śiva.

Tattva level transformations occur when any of the eight planets, as ātmakāraka is also placed in own sign. Sun and Mars = Āditya; Moon and Venus = Durgā; Mercury = Mahā Gaṇeśa; Jupiter = Mahā Viṣṇu; Saturn = Parama Śiva (Iśvara). Thus the mantra undergoes another more subtle transformation to Śrī Somanāth.

ॐ जुं हंसः सोमनाथाय नमः।
om juṁ haṁsaḥ somanāthāya namaḥ|
