In the Nārada purāṇa Sanat Kumār teaches, that among the mantras of Gaṇeśa, Śivā, Durgā, Sūrya, Viṣṇu, the Vaiṣṇava mantras give results most easily. Of these, the mantras of Śrī Rāma destroy all sins.

Śrī Rāma as one of the highest avatars of Lord Viṣṇu is represented by the Sun. Those who have the Sun as the Ātmākāraka or as the Iṣṭa Devatā can avail of these selective and beautiful mantras to pray to their chosen deities. Depending upon the placement of the Sun in the different houses of the horoscope, appropriate Rāma mantras can be adopted to improve ones’ capacity to work, ātmabala and for the removal of one’s sins. Such Rāma mantras for worshipping the Sun, will remove afflictions of a badly placed/weak Sun, which will destroy poverty, grant health, wealth, the highest of Rāja Yogas and strengthen the lagna.

Pañcākṣarī

The pañcākṣarī mantra is suitable for those who have Sun in the 5th house. The 5th house rules the intelligence and the mind, and the Sun rules the 5th house of the natural zodiac. This placement of the Sun depicts supreme intelligence, prowess in scriptures, specially the Gītā, the Vedāṇgas and Jyotiṣa, knowledge in aparā vidyā and a very sharp mind. The 5th house is also putrasthāna, and the Sun as a malefic destroys this house. The pañcākṣarī mantra therefore is a significant mantra for those desiring children and having an afflicted Sun in the 5th as well as those for aiming to reach the highest frontiers of knowledge.

रामाय नमः

rāmāya namaḥ

This mūla mantra of five akṣaras can be converted to ṣaḍākṣarīs by adding any of the following vījas, rām, klīm or hrīm as a prefix.

Ṣaḍākṣarī

The ṣaḍākṣarī (six syllables) mantra of Rāma, known as the Mantrarāj, is considered supreme among all mantras of Śrī Rāma. According to the Nārada Purāṇa, this mantra can single handedly remove all sins. It should be recited by those who have the Sun in the 6th house, giving him the capacity to destroy his enemies and the spiritual strength to overcome the weaknesses of the ṣaḍripus. The ṣaḍākṣarī mantra is as follows:

Ṛṣi: Brahmā, Chanda: Gāyatrī, Devatā: Śrī Rāma, Bīja: Rām, śakti: nāmah

रां रामाय नमः

rāṁ rāmāya namaḥ

The accompanying ṣaḍākṣarī mantra for his śakti, Sītā, is called the Jānakī Mantra:

श्री सीतायै स्वाहा

śrī sītāyai svāhā

Dhyāna

The dhyāna for the ṣaḍākṣarī mantra is given below:

कालाम्भोधरकान्तं च वीरासनसमास्थितं।

kālāmbhodharakāntaṁ ca vīrāsanasamāsthitaṁ|

ज्ञानमुद्रां दक्षहस्ते दधतं जानुनीतरं॥

jñānamudrāṁ dakṣahaste dadhataṁ jānunītaraṁ||

सरोरुहकरां सीतां विद्युदाभां च पार्शगां।

saroruhakarāṁ sītāṁ vidyudābhāṁ ca pārśagāṁ|

पश्यन्तीं रामवक्राब्जं विविधाकल्पभुशितां॥

paśyantīṁ rāmavakrābjaṁ vividhākalpabhuśitāṁ||

Translation: Śrī Rāma’s complexion is lustrous like the rain clouds. He is seated in vīrāsana[1]. His right hand is in jñānamudrā[2], while the left rests on the left knee. Sītādevī, dazzling with the radiance of lightening and adorned with various ornaments and clothes is seated to his left. She holds a lotus and is gazing at the radiant face of her beloved Rāma.

The other two ṣaḍākṣarī mantras are:

क्लीं रामाय नमः

klīṁ rāmāya namaḥ

ह्रीं रामाय नमः

hrīṁ rāmāya namaḥ

 

Saptākṣarī

The following mantras are good for strengthening and absolving problems, when the Sun is placed in the 7th house or kalatrabhāva. This placement of the Sun brings a spouse who will bring light to the lives of the native and his family and give a new lease to start life afresh, where there has been darkness and despair. Such a spouse will be a pillar of strength and shoulder the responsibilities of the native’s family, nourish it back to life and sustain it by extending the lineage.

Ṛṣi: Brahmā, Chanda: Gāyatrī, Devatā: Śrī Rāma, Vīja: Rām, śakti: nāmah

  1. रामचन्द्राय स्वाहा

rāmacandrāya svāhā

  1. रामभद्राय स्वाहा

rāmabhadrāya svāhā

 

Dhyāna

श्यामं वीरासनासीनं ज्ञानमुद्रोपशोभितं॥

वामोरुन्यस्ततद्धस्तं सीतालक्ष्मणसंयुतं।

अवेक्षमाणमात्मानं मन्मथामिततेजसं॥

शुद्धस्फतिकसंकाशं केवलं मोक्षकाङ्क्षया।

śyāmaṁ vīrāsanāsīnaṁ jñānamudropaśobhitaṁ||

śuddhasphatikasaṁkāśaṁ kevalaṁ mokṣakāṅkṣayā|

cintayet paramātmānamṛtulakṣaṁ japenmanuṁ||

Translation: On the banks of the Sarayū, under a Mandar Tree a raised dias is built, upon which is laid a lotus seat. On this lotus seat, the Dark Hued One  (Śrī Rāma) is seated in virāsana. His right hand is in jñānamudrā and the left hand rests on his left thigh. He is seated together with Śitā and Lakṣmaṇa. He is more brilliantly radiant than Kāmadeva and unites with the Paramātmā in his meditation. He is pure like a crystal and should be perceived and realised only with the desire for mokṣa. Meditate upon this Paraṁātmā, with such desires and recite his mantra 6 lakh times.

 

Aṣtākṣarī

There are two basic aṣtākṣarī mantras, the rituals of which follow that of the ṣaḍākṣarī. These should be recited by those who have the Sun in the 8th house.

Ṛṣi: Brahmā, Chanda: Gāyatrī, Devatā: Śrī Rāma, Vīja: Rām, śakti: nāmah

  1. ॐ रामचन्द्राय नमः

om rāmacandrāya namaḥ

  1. ॐ रामभद्राय नमः

om rāmabhadrāya namaḥ

The following is the aṣtākṣarī mahāmantra, which is the mūla mantra for many other compound mantras:

  • ॐ रामाय हुं फट् स्वाहा

om rāmāya huṁ phaṭ svāhā

Ṛṣi: Viśvāmitra, Chanda: Anuṣṭup, Devatā: Rāmabhadra, Vīja: Rām, śakti: Śrīm

  • त्रैलोक्यनाथाय नमः

trailokyanāthāya namaḥ

om rāmāya huṁ phaṭ svāhā

 

Navākṣarī

The two-aṣṭākṣari mantras can be converted to navākṣarīs with the addition of ‘Om’ in the end. They will then read thus:

Ṛṣi: Brahmā, Chanda: Gāyatrī, Devatā: Śrī Rāma, Vīja: Rām, śakti: nāmah

  1. ॐ रामचन्द्राय नमः ॐ

om rāmacandrāya namaḥ om

  1. ॐ रामभद्राय नमः ॐ

om rāmabhadrāya namaḥ om

Navākṣarī mantras are suitable for those who have the Sun placed in the 9th house, in the dharmasthana. This placement of the Sun is extremely crucial as it is the kāraka for the 9th house, and is in trines to the lagna. The Sun in the 9th house represents dharma, religiosity, duty, honesty, with the dynamism and fire to build temples and religious institutions. The Sun and the 9th house also represent the father. Those who have a weak or an afflicted Sun in the 9th house, would benefit from the navākṣarī mantras of rāma.

 

Daśākṣarī

Ṛṣi: Vaśiṣṭha, Chanda: Svarāṭ, Devatā: Sītāpati, Vīja: Hum, śakti: Svāhā

हुं जानकीवल्लभाय स्वाहा

huṁ jānakīvallabhāya svāhā

The  daśākṣarī mantras are powerful mantras for karmayogis, with their Sun in the 10th house. The Sun attains digbala in the 10th, and gives a person immense capability to work and achieve and enjoy the best of Rāja yogas, enabling him to reach the zenith in fame and glory. Śrī Rāma had an exalted Sun in the 10th, signifying that he was the leading light of the Sūrya Vaṁśa and renowned for his kingship and tremendous valour.

Dhyāna

अयोध्यानगरे रत्नचित्रसौवर्णमण्दपे।

sītālakṛtavāmāgṅṁ lakṣamaṇenopaśobhitam||

śyāmaṁ prasannavadanaṁ sarvabharaṇabhuṣitam|

Translation: In the divine city of Ayodhya, there is a golden dias bedecked with jewels and ornaments. Above the dias is a canopy made of Mandar flowers. There is a gate, and beyond the gate is the Puṣpak Vimāna (chariot), upon which Śrī Rāghava sits atop a throne. In that beautiful Vimānā, all the devatās (gods), monkeys, rākṣasas (demons) and the mahaṛṣis (sages) are serving śrī Rāma and singing hymns in his praise. To his left, sits Sītā, glorifying her surrounds, and to his right is Lakṣmaṇa, adding to the resplendency of the great lord. Śrī Rāma is dark hued, with a peaceful and smiling countennance and bedecked with many adornments.

 

Ekādaśakṣarī

Ṛṣi: Viśvāmitra, Chanda: Anuṣṭup, Devatā: Rāmabhadra, Vīja: Rām, śakti: Śrīm

ॐ ह्रीं श्रीं श्रीं दाशरथाय नमः

om hrīṁ śrīṁ śrīṁ dāśarathāya namaḥ

The dhyāna is the same as that for saptakṣarī mantras. This mantra is for those who have the Sun in the 11th house, the bhāva for gains and income. The śrīm bīja, depicting Lakṣmī will ensure a good income while the Sun will ensure success and gains from all professional undertakings.

 

Dvādaśākṣarī

Ṛṣi: Brahmā, Chanda: Gāyatrī, Devatā: Śrī Rāma, Bīja: Rām, śakti: nāmah

1 ॐ नमो भगवते रामचन्द्राय

om namo bhagavateī rāmacandrāya

2 ॐ नमो भगवते रामभद्राय

om namo bhagavatei rāmabhadrāya

The dvādaśākṣarī mantras are for those who have the Sun in the 12th house. Although this is the Marana Kāraka Sthāna of the Sun, the 12th house belongs to Viṣṇu and is the house for meditation and mokṣa. So for purposes of Iṣṭa Devatā worship, worshipping the Rāma avatār of Viṣṇu with these dvādaśākṣarī mantras are excellent.

 

Trayodaśakṣarī

Ṛṣi: Brahmā, Chanda: Virāṭ, Devatā: Pāpanāśaka Śrī Rāma, Bīja: Rām, śakti: nāmah

श्री राम जय राम जय जय राम

śrī rāma jaya rāma jaya jaya rāma

The dhyāna is the same as that for the daśākṣarī mantras. This mantra is for those who have the Sun in the lagna. The mere mention of the name of Rāma will destroy all evils and dangers.

Special Purpose Mantra

Mahāpuruṣa Yoga

Ṛṣi: Viśvāmitra, Chanda: Dhṛti, Devatā: Śrī Rāma, Bīja: Om, śakti: nāmah;

ॐ नमो भगवते रामाय महापुरुषाय नमः

To be recited 18 lakh times for mantra siddhi. Kalyāṇa Verma  (Sārāvali) explains that mahāpuruṣa yogas cannot fructify if the Sun is weak, and Parāsara has listed Śrī Rāma as the highest form of the Sun incarnation. Worshipping Śrī Rāma with this mantra makes the mahāpuruṣa yoga in a chart.

Battle, Court Cases

Ṛṣi: Brahmā, Chanda: Virāt, Devatā: Rākṣasmardana Rāmacandra, Bīja: Rām, śakti: Svāhā

रामाय धनुष्पाणये स्वाहा

rāmāya dhanuṣpāṇaye svāhā

The daśākṣarī mantra listed above will give the worshipper the strength and power to remove obstacles and emerge victorious in all his undertakings.

Wealth, Finance

Ṛṣi: Viśvāmitra, Chanda: Anuṣṭup, Devatā: Rāmabhadra, Bīja: rāṁ, śakti: śrīṁ;

ॐ रां श्रीं

रामभद्र महेष्वास रघुवीर नृपोत्तम।

दशास्यान्तकं मां रक्ष देहि मे परमां श्रियम्॥

om rāṁ śrīṁ

rāmabhadra maheṣvāsa raghuvīra nṛpottama|

daśāsyāntakaṁ māṁ rakṣa dehi me paramāṁ śriyam||

This 35-akṣara mantra gives all kinds of gains and wealth as 35-akṣara relates to the 11th house (35-24 =11). Removing the three-bīja akṣara in the beginning, the 32-akṣara-anuṣṭup mantra, which removes all sins, is obtained.

ॐ रां श्रीं

रामभद्र महेष्वास रघुवीर नृपोत्तम।

दशास्यान्तकं मां रक्ष देहि मे परमां श्रियम्॥

om rāṁ śrīṁ

rāmabhadra maheṣvāsa raghuvīra nṛpottama|

daśāsyāntakaṁ māṁ rakṣa dehi me paramāṁ śriyam||

Sins Destruction

राम राम महाबाहो देवानांभयंकर।

त्वां नमस्ये तु देवेश मम नश्यतु पातकम्॥

rāma rāma mahābāho devānāṁbhayaṁkara|

tvāṁ namasye tu deveśa mama naśyatu pātakam||

Benefits:

  1. Performing a yajña with the wood of the five trees (pañca vattika) bestows long life, free from disease.
  2. Using palāśa flowers as offerings in the yajña clears all problems related to the mind, bestows memory, intelligence and the person becomes brilliant.
