In the Vedic astrology, as one would know, there are nine planets representing various traits. This list of planets starts from lord Sun, Moon, Mars, Rahu, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury, Ketu and Venus in the same order.
Each of these nine planets have their respective ability to contribute in a native’s life. Some of them are highly benefic such as Moon, Jupiter, Mercury and Venus. But others such as Saturn, Rahu and Ketu are termed malefic.
Further planets Sun and Mars are neutral and can be both benefic or malefic results depending upon their placement in horoscope. Hence, these nine planets play a crucial role in a native’s life.
However, if an expert and learnt astrologer is consulted, they would easily predict the results of all the above planets, except Rahu and Ketu. Since Rahu and Ketu are not planets and are termed as Shadow planets.
In other words, Rahu and Ketu are mathematical calculations in a native’s horoscope. Hence, to be a good astrologer, one should know to predict the results of Rahu and Ketu from a respective horoscope. The duo lacks any shape and form in real terms.
Now, the question is why Rahu and Ketu are termed as Shadow planets? To know more about Rahu and Ketu, one need to know the Mythological story of Mohini, the divine beauty, an incarnation of lord Vishnu.
Once is so happened that lord Indra, the king of Devatas, was riding on his elephant. Rishi Durvasa (a sage) saw lord Indra and he offered him a garland. Indra accepted the garland with a smile and placed it on the trunk of his elephant.
But as soon as he placed the Garland, the elephant got irritated by the scent of the garland and threw it on the ground. Seeing this enraged Rishi Durvasa and he cursed lord Indra and all the Devatas to forget their Divya Shakti, meaning divine powers. The devatas were shocked to hear this curse.
In such a condition the Daanavas or also known as asuras attacked the Heavens and conquered the whole universe of the Devatas. The Devatas approached their supreme father and creator of the universe, Lord Brahma for his help.
Listening to their painful experience, he guided them to Lord Vishnu, the preserver of the entire universe. Lord Vishnu drew a plan and suggested Devatas to approach the Asuras and ask them for their co-operation in churning the mighty ocean to obtain amrita, an elixir of immortality.
The Devatas approached their rival asuras who agreed as this task required the combined efforts of both Devatas and Asuras. The duo started churning the mighty ocean, using Mount Mandara as a rod and the Serpent (Snake) Vasuki as a rope. Lord Vishnu incarnated as a Tortoise to hold up the mountain on his back.
As the churning of the ocean started, several things emerged as a result, starting with poison Halahala which threatened to destroy the universe but Lord Shiva kept it in his throat, without swallowing it.
Then came Kamadhenu, the wish-fulfilling cow, celestial horse Ucchaishravas, Airavata, the celestial elephant, the Kausthubha gem, the Parijataka (wish-fulfilling tree), Apsaras, the beautiful celestials’ maids, Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity, Varuni, the goddess of liquor appeared one by one.
Finally, Lord Dhanwantri, the god of medicine, appeared holding the pot of amrita. The Asuras forcefully snatched it, and refused to give it to Devatas. It is here that Lord Vishnu incarnated as Mohini, the enchantress, the most beautiful female form in the universe.
Vishnu’s incarnation as Mohini was a lady with divine beauty. Mohini came with the Amrit pot to the battle place and she suggested devatas and asuras to sit in different rows, so that she can distribute Amrit among them. All the Devatas and asuras agreed.
When Mohini started distributing Amrit to the Devatas. One asura, Rahuketu, sat in the row of devatas and drank the Amrit. The Sun and the Moon God noticed him and they informed Mohini; however, by that time Rahuketu had already became immortal.
Lord Vishnu as Mohini was enraged and cut off his head with his Sudarshan Chakra. Rahuketu could not die but his head was separated from his body, his head came to be known as Rahu and his body Ketu.
Since then, Rahu and Ketu are considered part of the nine planets in astrology, as they remained immortal for ever.
In fact, between the two, Rahu is said to be a giver and if well placed in a native’s horoscope, then he can be a very famous and prosperous individual. One example to the same is King Khan of Bollywood, Sharukh Khan.
However, if Rahu is not well placed in a native’s horoscope, then they would need remedies. One such remedy is to worship Rahu through Sri Rahu Yantra. A Rahu Yantra is known to remove hurdles in a native’s life. Since, this Yantra would remove all the negativities in one’s life. At the same time, this yantra would also reduce severe obstacles one after the other. Since, ancient times, a Yantra has always helped a native at the time it is needed the most.
Hence, a Sri Rahu Yantra is not only to remove obstacles, but also helpful for an auspicious and good start. This yantra will also protect a native from their enemies and can remove darkness in life.
Now, there are certain prescribed ritual or methods to be followed to enjoy Sri Rahu Yantra Benefits. According to Vedic astrologers, this Yantra brings in positive mind frame.
Some important rituals to be kept in mind are: one must take bath before offering poojas to Rahu Yantra. Along with the same it is crucial thing to note that when one sits to do pooja to activate this yantra the native should choose the eastern side of their residence.
Also, light proper incense or an oil lamp to please the yantra. By giving this start, Sri Rahu Yantra’s benefits are increased manifold.
Therefore, whatever be the problems related to career and work, marriage delay or unhappy married life, or constant quarrel, or problems of getting cheated regularly or even facing laziness, then a Sri Rahu Yantra will be good solution, astrologically to help the native.
