Navagraha Mantras

                                                                 Sometimes a planet becomes extremely negative in a horoscope and keeps on bothering and troubling the native more and more in spite of the native wearing the gemstones for the positive planets and doing other remedies for the negative planets. In such cases, the Mantra for the extremely negative planet is prescribed. Chanting the Mantra of a particular planet for a specific number of times in a given time frame helps reducing the negative effects of the planet. 

Mantras can also be chanted for positive planets. By chanting Mantras for a planet which is positive in your horoscope, the planet will start gaining strength as the Mantras will transmit the energy of the planet into your body in the same way the gemstones do, though the mechanism of gemstones and Mantras are different. And if you are chanting the Mantras for a planet which is negative in your horoscope, the negative effect of the planet will start reducing as you keep on chanting the Mantra for that planet. So the Mantras can be used for both the positive and negative planets. But the use of Mantras is still very limited in astrology in spite of the fact that they can be used for both negative and positive planets. This is mainly due to the reason that Mantras start showing significant effects very slowly compared to gemstones. Also the proper pronunciation and rhythm is very important in case of Mantras. 

And apart from the above mentioned things, there are some codes of cleanliness and disciplines which should be followed while chanting the Mantras. Due to these reasons people are generally not willing to chant the Mantras as it requires a great deal of effort and discipline on their part. That is why gemstones and other remedies are prescribed as they are simple to do and do not require any discipline or very little discipline. So it is comparatively very easy for a person to wear gemstones rather than chant the Mantras for the positive planets.

But in case of a negative planet, Mantras are the best remedy. And to raise a big count of a specific Mantra in a very short duration, a Pooja is performed in which the Mantra for a specific planet is chanted by expert Pandits on behalf of the native and the resultant energy and effects are transferred to the native. A count of 125,000 Mantras for a specific planet is chanted in a Pooja by the Pandits in a period of 3-7 days whereas it can take years if the native himself decides to chant the same count of a specific Mantra.  So in case you are interested in chanting the Mantra for some planet, be patient as it can take long to very long time before the Mantra starts showing effects. It is very important to learn the exact rhythm of the Mantra. Mantras are like voice passwords and are not likely to work properly or at all if not chanted with the exact proper rhythm. Let's now go ahead and have a look at the Mantras for different planets.

Here are the Basic Mantras for Nine Planets or NavaGraha according to Vedic Astrology.
