Devaguru Bṛhaspati

The Ṛk Veda gives nineteen ṛk (prayers) in two hymns for Bṛhaspati (devatā) also referred to as Brāhmaṇaspati and Gaṇapati. When using aṣṭottari daśā each of these ṛk are recited for one year of the daśā. These are from the second mandala hymn 24 and 25 although the version of the Ṛk veda by Śrī Dayananda Sarasvatī has given them together, which seems more appropriate. Anyway, these ṛk are extremely powerful in protecting us in nineteen ways.

    Dear Sri Rath, Namaskar

    “When using aṣṭottari daśā each of these ṛk are recited for one year of the daśā”

    Kindly elaborate the usage of these mantras more wrto ashtottari dasha, as said. It would be too great of you.

    With regards,

    Vijay Kumar
