Nava Graha Sthothram
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Japaa Kusumasankasham Kasyapeyam Maha Dhyuthim Tamognam Sarvapaapghnam Pranatosmi Divakaram
My salutations to the Sun,
Who is like the flower of meditation,
Who belongs to the clan of Kashyapa,
Who is of greatest brilliance,
Who is the destroyer of darkness,
And who is the destroyer of all sins.

Salutations to the mars,
Who is born to the earth,
Whose shine is equal to lightning,
Who is a young man,
And who carries the Shakthi.
Priyangukalika Shyaamam, RoopenaaPratimam Budham Soumyam Soumya Guno Petham Tam Budham Pranamamyamham
My salutations to Budha,
Who is black like the bud of millet,
Whose beauty has no equal,
Who is gentle by nature,
And who is positive.
Deva-naam cha Rishi Naam cha Gurum kaanchana sannibham, Buddhi Bhootam Trilokesham Tam Namaami Brihaspatim
My salutations to Jupiter,
Who is teacher of devas and sages,
Who is equal in shine to gold,
Whose soul is intellect,
And who is the lord of all three worlds.

My salutations to Rahu,
Who has only half body,
Who is a great hero,
Who hurts the Sun and Moon,
And who is born out of Simhika.

My salutations TO Kethu,
Who has the appearance of a Palashaa flower,
Who has a star on his head,
Who is terrible to look at,
And Who is ugly and the soul of terror.
Prayer for all the Nine Planets
