Q & A

What is a mantra? Traditionally it is any word or phrase, which, when repeated verbally or mentally, gives liberation. They are designed to harmonize the brain functioning to increase coherence and thence a sense of peace and profundity.

What is Yoga? Yoga means union of consciousness, which is a state of ineffable peace. Any practice that increases peace of mind, is therefore a part of Yoga.

This book has many uses.

First of all, it is a meditation. There are insights into astrology but the main focus is enlightening the consciousness and providing a rebalancing of the energies represented by the planets. This will happen automatically as one reads through the mantras and their commentaries.

Who will benefit?

This book will be of particular interest for anyone interested in Yoga, philosophy or astrology. Indeed, anyone who wants to better their life. Readers have reported that just reading the book makes them feel calmer, ‘Lucid and soothing’ as one reader put it. Yoga teachers and others who are interested in mantras and yet know little astrology can easily find the specific ones for their chart or charts of students and friends.

Nine planets each with 108 names

There are 108 names expressed as mantras for each of the nine planets used in Vedic Astrology. These planets are normally listed in the order of the days of the week. Therefore they are listed as the Sun, the Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn plus the two eclipse points. These are the Lunar nodes called Rahu (the North node) and Ketu (the South node). The planets are often referred to as ‘grahas’, the Sanskrit word which means ‘graspers’, as they appear to guide and control our experiences. The word ‘planets’ is only used for lack of a better English translation.

Names used as mantras to activate and remedy the effects of the planets

These mantras activate the positive values of the planet throughout the Zodiac. For the first time ever, they are listed with translation and commentary. Even if you only read the commentaries, you will get some of the benefit. If the planet is weak or afflicted, then this acts as a remedy. If it is already strong, this helps to enliven its full potential.

Applying to the individual chart

If you want to go beyond this and actually find out which of the mantras will especially enliven your personal chart and, hence, have the greatest benefit for you, this is also easy. The section in the book on Find your Personal Mantras will explain how to do this.

In printed and ebook formats

The printed book provides the mantras of all nine grahas/planets of Vedic Astrology in their traditional order. For convenience, I am also publishing the mantras of the nine planets in nine separate eBooks. There will also be audio recordings of each set of 108 mantras. I have on occasion given these to clients to listen to when that planet was afflicted in their chart with very positive results.

Bonus for astrologers

As a bonus, there is an extra chapter on ‘Secrets of Vimshottari Dasha‘. For the first time ever, the rationale behind the sequence and lengths of the Dashas are given along with new
