    1. Manoj, use the mantra of the Shiva Purana given above and copied below –

      om lakṣalābhayutāya siddhibuddhisahitāya gaṇapataye namaḥ||

  1. Om Gurave Namah
    Thank you very much for blessing us with the information. Could you please let me know what would be the Ganesha mantra for Ketu in the sixth house in natal chart and placed in 12th house in navamsa (it is also twelfth house from atma karaka)?

  2. Pranams Jyotish Guruji,
    Heartfelt gratitude for this knowledge. Does this mean that if the ninth house is the badhaka house for any fixed rashi lagna then one should repeat, “Bhalacandraya hum”, for decreasing the effects of badhaka Rashi?

    1. Pragnya Surati ~ these names are for the twelve rashi like Vakratunda is for Aries and Bhala-Chandra is for Sagittarius.
      Badhaka can occur from
      (a) the Badhaka Rashi if it is associated with malefic planets or the 6th lord
      (b) the sign occupied by the Badhakesha (lord of badhaka rasi) if it is a malefic planet or associated with the 6th lord
      (c) the sign occupied by the 6th lord provided it is associated with the badhaka lord in any manner
      So, there are three ways at least to peace the sign of evil. After that choose the name of Ganesha based on the sign. The simplest mantra adds the damana bija (supression of evils sound) huM.

  3. Guruji:
    First of all, thank you for providing remedy for Ketu related. I think I’m not as knowledgeable as rest of the folks here. So, i’m going to ask very basic question.

    I’m Aries Ascendent with Ketu in the 12th house and the same ketu in the 2nd house (Scorpio) (in Navamsa ). My badakesh will be Saturn or Rahu.

    So, i should recite, Om, Gajapataye hum ?. or any of the Artha Trikona mantra ?.

    Please clarify

  4. What would be the ideal mantra for my son who was born in Meena Rashi? He is going through a difficult time wrt his studies. He studies but backs out in the last minute just before the exam.

  5. Sir

    for Aqu rising Ve is yoga karak so it cannot be bhadjesh. Though as per text it says so. is that correct

    Can that mantra be still chanted or grained in the body
    गजपतये हुं

    1. Dr.S.C.Kursija

      Though Venus lord of 9th house, it is terms as badhaka. but Venus is yoga karaka also Venus is not badhaka for Aquarius lagna,To be badhaka the planets other qualities must be seen. Prashna Maarga explicitly describe about Badhaka Sthana should be seen in Prashna, through it says Prashna charts can studied like natal chart but again it warned that it should be seen for particular problem the native consulting; not for full life. Chapter 15th in Prashna Maarga explains about Badhaka Houses and Badhaka House lords and its effect and remedies.such a planet should simultaneously be the ruler of the house occupied by Kharesha or Maandi. “ A planet can only become Badhaka under certain circumstances. That implies many charts may not have a Badhaka at all. This makes sense since the 11th, 9th and 7th houses often give very good results belying the nomenclature Badha itself”.

      1. Dr. Kursija Namaste. You have a very good point. Thats why I used the word Badha (Sanskrit बाध bādha) which does not always mean an evil like a harasser, tormentor who puts a person in danger or jeopardy. It also means someone who is a contradiction to what you believe, has an objection to what you do and tries to bring forth superior proof. I will write a detailed papaer on Badhaka, or better still next Sunday Vyasa Class I teach Badhaka. Do consider joining us at these free classes. Join Vyasa Class Free

        1. Dr.S.C.Kursija

          Respected Sir, I shall be glad to join your classes. I am a homeopathic doctor and is open on Sunday morning also, thus is unable to join you and have personal contact. It is for you to help me. With regards

          1. It will be our pleasure to have you with the class in the talks. Please join The classes are held in Khirkee, Malviya Nagar. Map gives directions and 2 PM next Sunday. Thank you for the inspiration to start Badhaka discussions. Please inform Ritu Vij Malhotra

  6. Sorry Can you please elaborate. I did not understand. What is 2-6-10. In the box 11 refers to Aqu lagna is that correcr

    For Aqu lagna bhadkesh Ve in 12th house with Su+Me. How do you see that condition

  7. Acknowledged,

    Badhaka Removal Mantras for 12 badhaka rashi

    Are these mantras for each ascendant or moon sign?

    And we can chant this daily. correct. I have seen many people create mantra tattoos on their body does it have any significant positive/negative impact
