Navagraha Mantra (Stotram) : Lyrics, Meaning and Benefits

This powerful Navagraha mantra (or strotram) has the power to remove the negative and malefic effects of all nine planets.

In astrology, considerable importance is placed on the positions of the “Navagraha” in the 12 constellations of the zodiac, their planetary movements, and their effect on the mental and physical health of human beings.

The nine planets play an important role in the life and activities of all individuals alike.

These mantras are actually peace mantras for the nine planets.

In ancient Sanskrit, ”Nava” literally translates as ”nine” and the Sanskrit word ”Graha” represents “planet.”

Therefore, the ”Navagraha mantra” is a mantra for the nine planets.

These powerful mantras are considered to pacify the nine planets and protect the chanter from their negative effects.

In addition, practicing Navagraha Stotram daily can make you wealthy, healthy, and prosperous.

Notes – a particular “graha” may be adverse or beneficial in an individual’s horoscope. Mantras are like voice passwords and are not likely to work effectively or at all if not recited with the exact proper rhythm.
