RAHU KETU AND SHANI MANTRA SADHANAS
I know their power as I have myself been a beneficiary. Mantras are one of the most powerful remedies ever. I would not waste time in explaining how they work. I have written enough about the remedies.
Also, please remember doing Mantra Sadhana yourself will do wonders, please don’t outsource it to anyone else. Doing these yourself brings you the blessings of the planet and brings you towards better understanding and reaching higher principle of the planet.
The aim of this article is to help my readers and clients help the Mantra Sadhanas.
A Mantra Sadhna is spiritual practice of chanting a mantra a specified number of times within a specified number of days. The number of days can be 40 or less (you can do even in one or two days if possible for you).
WARNING: DO ONLY ONE PLANET’S MANTRA SADHANA AT A TIME. NEVER do sadhana for 2 planets on the same day.
E.g. If you are suggested to do Rahu and Ketu, FINISH all 18000 for Rahu before beginning with Ketu. E.g. if you finished Rahu sadhana on Monday, start Ketu only on Tuesday.
Rules to Follow: Physical purity
- You must remain pure while chanting Mantras
- Do the chants preferably in morning after taking a bath
- Burn incense while you do them
- Do it in your home temple or personal sacred space
- If you have to visit the washroom in between, take a bath after that or at least wash your hands, face, and mouth
During these 40 days (or a shorter period during which you should complete the charts) one has to maintain purity:
- No liquor
- No Non Veg
- No sex
Women undergoing periods should stop sadhana and resume from where they left once their periods are over.
- The Mantras have to be recited over a period of 40 days or less.
- Preferably be on a sattwick diet (mostly fruits as much as possible)
- Remember you can INCREASE the daily Mantra count, but can NEVER decrease. E.g. if you changed 1000 on day 1 on day 2 you can do 1001 but not 999
You can complete the Sadhana even in one or two days, but please do NOT compromise on the rules of purity.
