The best way to please the nine planets is by performing simple remedies and rituals from the Vedic tradition. These include donating items as outlined in the scriptures, chanting mantras, Navagraha Homa, and offering prayers to the planets. Additionally, wearing gemstones that correspond with a planet can help attract its positive effects.
Let’s take a look at the meaning of the DivyaNama, Shuchishrava and also understand something very important in the context of performing remedies. Shuchishrava from रुद्रो बहु-शिरा बभ्रु: विश्वयोनिः शुचि-श्रवाः of Vishnu SahasraNama. shuchisrava – श्रवांसि / नामानि शुचीनि श्रवणीयानि अस्येति शुचिश्रवाः Shrava means names. His divine....
Let’s take a look at the meaning of the DivyaNama, Shuchishrava and also understand something very important in the context of performing remedies.
रुद्रो बहु-शिरा बभ्रु: विश्वयोनिः शुचि-श्रवाः
of Vishnu SahasraNama.
shuchisrava – श्रवांसि / नामानि शुचीनि श्रवणीयानि अस्येति शुचिश्रवाः
Shrava means names.
His divine names are purifying.
They are worth listening to.
Merely by listening to them you get purified.
Taking his name is one thing. Listening is another thing.
Even if you listen to his names, his names fall on your ear, they purify you.
Another meaning -
Bhagawan himself says -
शुचीनि श्रवणीयानि शृणोमीह धनंजय।
न च पापानि गृह्णामि ततोऽहं वै शुचिश्रवाः ।
I will only listen to prayers that are pure nature.
If you pray that my neighbor should face a financial crisis so that he will do a distress sale of his house and you can grab it - No. He will not listen to you.
He will only answer prayers with pure intention.
But if your prayers are pure. Pure does not necessarily mean that there should be no worldly desire. Pray for health, wealth, peace - no problem. He will listen and answer. Don't pray for anything that can harm yourself or harm others. Anything that involves committing a sin.
That he will not listen to.
As a thumb rule he would definitely listen to his devotees.
तदुक्तानि अवश्यं शृणोति
Bhagawan spent a whole night listening to Vidura.
धर्म्या रम्याश्च अर्थवतीः विचित्रार्थ-पदाक्षराः ।
शृण्वतो विविधा वाचः विदुरस्य महात्मनः ।
अकामस्यैव कृष्णस्य सा व्यतीयाय शर्वरी ।।
Because Vidura was talking about virtues, his words were meaningful, his style was great. This is what the Lord likes to listen to.
This is what the Lord wants you to talk about, always.
Not gossipping or worthless topics.
Another meaning -
Indra is called वृद्धश्रवाः - वृद्धं श्रवो धनं कीर्तिर्वा यस्य सः वृद्धश्रवाः
Someone who has abundance of wealth or fame is Vriddhashrava.
Shrava means wealth or fame.
Bhagawan here is Shuchi Shrava.
His wealth is pure. Wealth that he blesses with is pure.
Wealth that comes with his blessing is pure.
Also his glory is pure, spotless.
Fame that comes with his blessings will never get affected by bad reputation.
We do remedies, some as prayaschittas, elaborate rituals such as gaya shraddha.
Mrityunjaya when facing health issues.
Navagraha Shanti when period as per horoscope is bad.
Or even chant certain specific shlokas or stotras or mantras.
Visit particular temples.
Undertake fasting - on Thursdays, Saturdays.
Read certain scriptures - Ramayana, SundaraKanda.
Some seem to yield results immediately.
Some, apparently no result is seen.
Why is this so?
Are we missing out on something important?
We expect that purohitas have come, the ritual was conducted properly, good amount of money has been spent, it should yield result.
There is a very very important point connected to prayaschittas, remedies.
Unless you do this, nothing is going to work.
प्रायश्चित्तानि चीर्णानि नारायणपराङ्मुखम् ।
न निष्पुनन्ति राजेन्द्र सुराकुम्भमिवापगाः ॥
If you ignore Naryana and do any prayaschitta , it will not purify.
What is the purpose of doing remedy, prayaschitta ?
Prayaschitta is detoxifying.
Past karma has accumulated as toxins inside.
Which is acting on the body, mind.
Performance of prayaschitta is detoxification.
Here, it is being compared to dipping a liquor filled sealed pot in Ganga.
Ganga can purify anything.
But not a sealed liquor filled pot.
The act of dipping the pot in Ganga is done.
But the liquor still remains inside.
In the same, even if you perform all the external acts or remedies, prayaschittas, the toxin inside is still there.
It is the toxin accumulated inside which is harming you.
How to get rid of that ?
Only Sri Hari can make you pure inside.
Allow him inside.
Don't ignore him.
Take his name at the end of whatever you are doing.
Like how you do Ganesha puja at the beginning, take Lord Vishnu's name at the end.
Then it will work like magic.
प्रायश्चित्तान्यशेषाणि तपः कर्मात्मकानि वै ।
यानि तॆषामशेषाणां कृष्णानुस्मरणं परम् ॥
श्रीकृष्ण कृष्ण कृष्ण
Take his divine name at least three times.
It is anusmaranam. To be done after the prayaschitta is completed.
If you are reading SundaraKanda to get relief from a certain problem, once you finish reading say -
Krishna Krishna Krishna or
Narayana Narayana Narayana
This has another benefit as well.
यस्य स्मृत्या च नामोक्त्या तपोयज्ञक्रियादिषु ।
न्यूनं सम्पूर्णतां याति सद्यो वन्दे तमच्युतम् ॥
Be it tapas such as fasting, be it yajnas, if there is a shortcoming it will get compensated if you remember the Lord and take his name.
The effect is immediate.
Next time you do a remedy or any kind of prayaschitta make sure that you don't miss this very very important point.
Why is it very important to worship Lakshmi Devi externally using flowers etc?
