Navgrah Mantra is recommended for all, particularly those whose benefic planets (rnitra grahas) are weak and therefore unable to deliver. The malefic planets in their case are quite potent to do maximum damage. Navgrah Mantra should be recited life-long to ensure that one always gets optimum benefits from all the planets.

Om Suryaye namah | Chanderaae namahiBudhaye namah Bhomaae namah | Brahaspatiaae namah | Shukeraae namah sanieaae namah I rahuaae namah ketuaae namah navgrarahaae namah
