Mantras for Graha

nti according to
Bhat Parara Hor stra

These are theVedicmantras as given by Parara in the Graha nti chapter.They were not put into the first volume
ofScience of Lightas they are too complex for the average person.

In the translation below, I have tried to get the appropriate feeling of the verse- more than just a direct
translation, yet trying not to stray from the direct translation, and yet still keep some poetic flow with a logical
meaning. If any errors are noticed in the Sanskrit, please notify me. May the planets be pleased with you.
