Navagraha stotram composed by Sri Veda Vyasa in Sanskrit, Kannada, English with meaning

Namaste friends, how are your doing today? Bhagavan Sri Vishnu blessings to you and your family!

Hindu Sanatana Dharma is just one in the world. We can’t find more knowledgeable people on this earth than the Indians, that is, we are aware of the Navagrahas (Nine planets) since ‘aadi kalam’ (Grand unknown time).

We were able to find out the outer space information without any special instruments like of those today’s modern technology. Just doing pooja / worshipping Bhagavan Sri Vishnu was more than enough to gain unlimited knowledge.

No worship of any deity should be done without an understanding hierarchical (taratamya) position of Bhagavan Sri Hari and all other Devatas.

First of all, let’s know the correct names of the Navagrahas (Nine planets) with their hierarchical position according to Hindu Sanatana Dharma:

1. Sri Surya Deva / The Sun God – Sri Surya Deva (The Sun God-The Moon God) [12th position]

2. Sri Chandra Deva / The Moon God – Sri Surya Deva-Sri Chandra Deva (The Sun God-The Moon God) [12th position]

3. Sri Kuja / Mangala Deva / The Mars God – Sri Mangala Deva (Kuja) / The Mars God [25th position]

4. Sri Budha Deva / The Mercury God – Sri Budha Deva / The Mercury God [23rd position]

5. Sri Brihaspati Deva (Guru graha) / The Jupiter God – Sri Brihaspati / The Jupiter God [10th position]

6. Sri Shukra Deva / The Venus God – Sri Shukra Deva / The Venus God [19th position]

7. Sri Shani Deva / The Saturn God – Sri Shani Deva / The Saturn God [26th position]

8. Rahu – He is an asura

9. Ketu – He is an asura

All these are collectively are known as Navagrahas (Divine nine planets).

A Graha or a planet an astronomical outer space celestial body that has substantial influence on both living and non-living beings on earth.

Navagrahas (Nine planets) play a very and highly important role in all the living beings including human beings.

Navagrahas (Nine planets) are the pivotal celestial bodies which keeps on rotating.

(It should be noted that, earlier the modern scientists were unaware about the movement of the Sri Surya Deva / Sun God and they were thinking that Sun is a stationary object.)

(But, we Hindus were aware about the Sri Surya Deva’s movement since the unknown time, that is, we were knowing that Sun is non-stationary object and it also keeps on rotating like the other planets.)

As per Hindu Sanatan Dharma, each Graha has a particular role and significance.

All the Grahas are representatives of the Primordial Sarvottama / Supreme Bhagavan Sri Vishnu.

The Navagrahas are the Bhagavan Sri Vishnu’s agents and they only act as per the instructions of Bhagavan Sri Vishnu. We humans gain the fruits as per our Karmas.

If we are performing Dharmic (According to Dharma) Karmas, we will get good fruits as per our Karmas and if we are performing unpleasant Karmas, we will definitely get the fruits as per our Karmas.

Doing ‘aradhana’ (Worshipping) of Navagrahas is prevalent in Hindu Dharma since the time immemorial followed by our ancestors and same is described in various sacred Hindu Sanatana Dharma Shastras (Hindu divine books).

The best example of Navagraha aradhana (Worship) can be found in the divine Sri Satya Narayana Swamy Vrata.

This divine Sri Satya Narayana Vrata is one of the most auspicious, popular and highly meritorious divine Vratas performed in the Kali Yuga.

Navagraha Stotram

The divine Navagraha Stotram was composed by Bhagavan Sri Veda Vyasa Ji (He is an avatar of Bhagavan Sri Vishnu).

Let’s know this divine Stotram as given below:
