Worship Lord Vishnu and get rid of Navagraha Doshas!

By Hemamalini Raghunathan

Seek refuge in the Lord’s feet! Not only that Navagrahas would not harm you, but also you will attain salvation! In Vaishnavism, the Act of Saranagati or Prapatti has six divisions :

  • Promise to yourself to do only those things that please God.
  • Refrain from doing those things that are not permitted in Sastras.
  • Accept Lord with total faith, as the only Protector.
  • Understand the enormous glory of the Lord, who sustains the Universe at all times.
  • Surrender every thing to Lord, without any misgivings.
  • Cultivate absolute humility, because of your helplessness to protect yourself on your own. Lord is the only Protector.
Lord Maha Vishnu : Dasavatar

VAISHNAVAITES (devotees of Lord Vishnu) worship only Lord Maha Vishnu and the associated deities of Nithyasuries, Alwars and Gurus like Sri Ramanujacharya. They believe that by worshipping Lord Narayana, one can easily get the blessing of Navagrahas also, as the Lord of all the Navagrahas is Lord Maha Vishnu Himself.

Separate Navagraha shrine is not seen generally inside Vaishnava temples, which are constructed based on Vaikanasa and Panjaratra Agama Sastras. Among 108 Divya Desam temples, one temple has a separate shrine for Navagrahas, i.e. in Sri Koodal Azhagar Perumal temple in Madurai, Tamil Nadu.

Dasavatar for Navagraha remedy

One of the reputed Acharyas of Sri Vaishnavas, H.H.Sri Tridandi Chinna Jeeyar Swami says thus: “Each Navagraha has one incarnation of Lord Vishnu as their in-dweller. So, if one worships that Avatar, the particular Graha-santhi gets done.

Sun  - Lord Rama;
Moon- Lord Krishna;
Mars - Lord Nrusimha;
Mercury - Lord Venkateswara, Lord Kalki;
Jupiter - Sri Vamana;
Venus - Parasurama, Goddess Lakshmi;
Saturn - Lord Kurma (Sri Kurman temple, in A.P);
Rahu - Lord Varaha;
Ketu - Lord Mathsya

Chanting of Sri Vishnu Sahasranama and Dasavatara stothras are recommended, as these include Lord’s all avatars.
Apart from the above, many devotees in general believe that many Vaishnava temples are also associated with Navagraha remedies.
