Śiva Sahasranāma

Perhaps the most revered of the prayers to Lord Śiva, the Śiva Sahasra nāma has the power to remove every malefic aspect or blockage on Bṛhaspati, represented by Jupiter in vedic astrology. There are a number of variations of the Shiva sahasranāma in the ancient texts (about 18 scriptures).

Gāyatrī Mantras

Gāyatrī is a chandas, a vedic meter, designed with 24 syllables (phonemes) and having three pada (feet) each having eight syllables. This conception of gāyatrī is based on (a) the standard mantra pada which is of eight syllables called aṣṭākṣarī. This is the simplest form of the mantra-pada. स-स-व-द प-र-र-ज | sa-sa-va-da pa-ra-ra-ja and (b) the fact that Agni devatā, the deva of bhū-loka (earth plane of consciousness) has three legs.

Each leg is pointed at a direction of 120° from the other. Together, the three legs cover the 360° of the geo-centric zodiac.

Ucchista Ganesha

This is the dancing form of Ganesha and the meditation etc, visualize Ganesha in a rather jovial, compromising mood. Ucchista Ganesha is worshiped to remove domestic disharmony and the relationship with spouse is improved. All sorts of troubles with in-laws etc vanish and the family gets together and lives happily. For the last two decades we have advised the placing of a statue of dancing Ganesha (idol) near the headstand of the bed and the relationship between couples has improved.
