Navagraha Mantras To Overcome Bad Luck and Doshas

Navagraha Mantra

In Jyotish Shastra or Hindu Astrology, the nine planets are collectively known as Navagraha. They are worshipped for good luck or to overcome adversity, bad luck, or misfortune arising from past karmas or birth-related defects (doshas). Navagrahas are found in most Hindu temples, either grouped together on a panel or on a pedestal in commonly visible areas of the temple.

Devotees usually propitiate Navagrahas before offering prayers to the main deity in the sanctum sanctorum of the temple. Of the nine deities, seven are named after the planets in the solar system and correspond with the names of the seven days in the week of the Hindu calendar.

Navagraha Mantra

Human life is hugely affected by the nine planets, and hostile positioning of the same may worsen everything. The great Rishis wrung their knowledge dry into the stotras that help restore positivity of all sorts in your life. The Navagraha Mantras are simple yet strong healing procedures. Regular chanting of the Navagraha Mantra creates positive vibrations and influences the related planets to give favorable results.
