Vishnu and get rid of Navagraha Doshas!
By Hemamalini Raghunathan
Seek refuge in the Lords 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
- Refrain from doing those things that are not permitted
- 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
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
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 Lords all avatars.
Apart from the above, many devotees in general believe that many
Vaishnava temples are also associated with Navagraha remedies.
