A pujari of Dharma-raja, from ‘Voyage aux Index orientales’ by Pierre Sonnerat, Paris, 1782

The Sadhu Sankuli Tantra has a detailed list of graha-dhyāna and graha mantras. Unlike the other works on navagraha remedy, these are meant for begging forgiveness for sins and overcoming our flaws. To become a sadhu the heart must become soft like that of a sadhu. All bad memories that torment and thoughts that drive one to sin must be expelled. We should be able to sleep like a baby and wake up with a smile.

We need to remove our basic blemishes marked in the sixth bhāva. The sixth from lagna shows that will sin against us and the six from āruḍha shows what we shall sin. If Sun is the lord of the sixth bhāva from lagna or associated with the sixth bhāva, then it is father who shall punish. If the Sun is in the sixth bhāva from lagna then it is our own ego that always comes in the way of having any meaningful relationship. Mantras of the Sadhu Sankuli Tantra are correcting our internal flaws and will address the one caused by the Sun in the sixth bhāva from āruḍha lagna. To deal with the sixth and other bhāva from lagna we will need to investigate another book – Sāmba Purana.

As a first step, list the planets placed in the sign in the sixth house from āruḍha lagna. If none, then consider the lord of the sign. If there are two lords, then consider both carefully and determine which of them is a bigger problem.

Later, we need to examine the eighth sign from āruḍha lagna to know our debts from a past life – the planets therein and its lord, show the debt. Pay this debt by caring for the people indicated by them. We need to worship the graha to become debt free as they alone know how much we owe. The mantras for this purpose are separate like the bhauma ṛṇa mochana stotra-mantra. Similarly, the twelfth bhāva from āruḍha is about giving. To ensure that we do with a happy heart, recite the mantras of your iṣṭa devatā who teaches us to give with a good heart. We have come empty handed and shall leave with nothing. So why must we not share everything, especially when we owe someone.

Let us get back to the purification problem and start with listing planets in the sixth-bhāva from āruḍha (AL6); if none then take the lords of the sign. Planets aspects will add to the sin or encourage the weakness by providing opportunity. In the above example, we have Cancer Lagna with Mo-Ar forming the āruḍha in Libra. If you don’t know how to calculate the āruḍha, simple look for ‘AL’ in the software, at this stage. The sixth from AL is marked as AL6 and is in Pisces. Look for planets in Pisces (AL6) for any weakness. If AL7 is stronger than AL, then these weaknesses maybe in AL12 (Virgo). These are the planets that need a remedy.

sādhusaṁkuli tantra grahapuraścaraṇa prayogaḥ

Instruction: Recite the dhyāna once before meditation. Do ten pranayama with ‘oṁ’ and then recite the mantra 108 times or multiples thereof. Normally we would recommend 108 × daśā (years) or the planet. For example, if the Sun mantra is to be done then 108 × 6 i.e. six mālā.

Dhyāna
ॐ रक्तपद्मासनं देवं चतुर्बाहुसमन्वितम् । क्षत्रियं रक्तवर्नञच गोत्रं काश्यपसम्भवं॥
सप्ताश्वरथमारूढं प्रचण्डं सर्वसिद्धिदम् । द्विभुजं रक्तपद्मैश्च संयुक्तं प्र्माद्भुतं॥
कलिञगदेशजं देवं मौलिमाणिक्यभूषणम् । त्रिनेत्रं तेजसा पूर्णमुदयाचलसंस्थितं॥
द्वादशाञगुल-विस्तीर्णं प्रबरं घृतकौशिकम् । शिवाधिदैवं पुर्वास्यं ब्रह्मप्रत्यधिदैवतं॥

dvādaśāñagula-vistīrṇaṁ prabaraṁ ghṛtakauśikam  |
śivādhidaivaṁ purvāsyaṁ brahmapratyadhidaivataṁ ||

Note that the adhi-devatā is Śiva and pratyādi devatā is Brahmā which is not the normal order for Sun. Normally for the Sun, the graha devatā is Sūrya, Adhi devatā is Agni and pratyādi devatā is Rudra. However, this is different when you are trying to become like a sadhu – all clean and pure inside.

Sūrya Mantra
क्लीं ऐं श्रीं ह्रीं सूर्याय नमः
klīṁ aiṁ śrīṁ hrīṁ sūryāya namaḥ

The mantras of the adhi and pratyādi devatā are as follows. Vedic mantras (ṛgveda or other) are advised for those initiated.

Shiva (Adhi devatā)
ॐ नमः शिवाय
om namaḥ śivāya

Brahmā (Prajāpati pratyādi devatā)
Use one of the ten mānasa putra mantras for the brahmarṣi
ॐ अत्रि ब्रह्मणे नमः
om atri brahmaṇe namaḥ

Moon

yoṣitpriyaṁ mahānandaṁ yamunājalasambhavaṁ ||
umādhidaivataṁ devamāpapratyadhidaivataṁ ||

Note that the adhi-devatā and pratyādi devatā have been reversed. Normally we have Jala-devī (āpa-devī) as adhi devatā and Gourī (Umā) as pratyādi devatā. Soma is the graha devatā of Chandra.
