Ketu Yantra (Navagraha Yantras)
Ketu yantra is very useful to negate the bad effect of Ketu dasa bhukti period. Usually when our effort is not giving fruitful result for a longer period, it may be due to Rahu & Ketu. Praying Rahu & Ketu and/or doing shanti parihara to ketu & rahu or Having rahu & ketu yantras will help getting more benefit for our efforts.
What is Yantras and Why we need Energized Yantra:
When we do prayers, Homa or at temple, we feel vibration but it is temporary. We are not able to extend this positive vibration for a longer period.
Hindu Saints found an idea to store the vibration for a much longer period. They used panchloga (5 materials viz., Gold, Silver, Copper, Iron and Lead… all are very good conductors of Energy) to make idols. (It is like recording a song and enjoying it forever)
Gold and silver are costlier. Copper is the second best conductor of energy after Silver but much cheaper than silver. So it is widely used as a medium to store/save the Vibration of Mantra for a longer period of time in the form of Yantra which are made in Copper.
Energization of Yantra: Saving the Positive Vibration of Mantra in the Yantra is called Energization of Yantra. Correct mantras for the Yantra need to be chanted with requisite number of Time. This is what is called energization of Yantra. It is of no use to keep an yantra which are not energized.
Energized Yantra: We offer Yantras only after Energization of the Yantra (Saving the vibration) with proper Mantra with requisite number of times it is being chanted correctly with appropriate method as per shastra.
Use of this Ketu Yantra:
Ketu is the most powerful planets out of all 9 planets and alongwith Rahu, it can negate all efforts and make the efforts go in vain. If Rahu and/or Ketu is not favourable, all our effort never fetches the desired result. Ketu yantra (alongwith Rahu Yantra) gives us to negate the negative energy of Ketu and expect more positives for our efforts. It can give the following, if it energized with proper mantras as per procedures given below and maintain the yantra properly:
- 1. Success for our effort.
- 2. Sakala Karya Siddhi (Success in Attempts)
- 3. Removing hurdles in marriages, business, education etc.
- 4. Good to have during Ketu dasa Bhukti period to negate the bad effect of Ketu.
- 5. To improve knowledge.
- 6. Ketu is responsible for Spirituality, Intelligence, Wisdom and Losses.
How to energize Ketu Yantra:
Both Men and Women can perform this pooja.
How many times we should do japa to energise the yantras:
Ketu Mahadasa period is 7 years. So we need to chant Ketu Mantras for 7000 times as per shastra.
