How to Bend Destiny with the Navagraha Mantras – 7 – Jupiter
This post continues the ongoing series on How to Bend Destiny.
Guru – Planet of Spirituality
Jupiter is one of the most important planets in the solar system. It governs the spirituality and influence of aspirants.
Effects of Jupiter
In Eastern astrology, Jupiter is known as Guru (literally spiritual teacher) and Brihaspati. Brihaspati is the Guru of all the Devas and the son of Rishi Agirasa.
Jupiter governs personal qualities – such as optimism, gravitas, influence and scholastic aptitude, and also their material gains – such as the generation and preservation of wealth.
A person with a well placed Guru in their birth chart will be of a spiritual nature, charitable and generally benevolent with a full understanding of the concept of karma. They will endeavour to lead positive and meaningful lives.

The Vedic prayer to Jupiter is below, followed by the Brihaspati Gayatri.
Vedic prayer to Mercury
“Devaanaam cha Risheenaam cha Gurum kaanchana Sannibham
Buddhibhootam trilokesham tham namaami Brihaspathim“
“I pray to the spiritual teacher of the Seers and the Gods who is of a golden colour, the intelligent one and the Lord of the Three Worlds.”
“Om Vrishabadhwajaaya Vidmahae
Kruni Hastaaya Dheemahi
Tanno Guru Prachodayaat“
“We know the bull-flagged one,
We meditate on the one who achieves things,
May Jupiter inspire us”
Mantras to Shiva as Dakshinamurthy
The Ruling Deity of Jupiter is Shiva in the form of Dakshinamurthy, the Silent Guru, who appeared to the Sanat Kumaras to impart the wisdom of the universe and dispel their doubts.
“Om Sri Gurubhyo namaha, Harihi Om
Gurur Brahma Gurur Vishnuhu
Guru devo Maheshwaraha
Guru saakshaat Parambrahma
Tasmai Sri Gurave namaha.
Gurave sarva lokanaam
Nidhaye sarva vidhyanam
Sri Dakshinamurthaye namaha
Sri Gurubhyo namaha, Harihi Om”
“Prostrations to the Guru and Hari (Vishnu)
The Guru is Brahma
The Guru is Vishnu
The Guru is Mahesh (Shiva)
The Guru is the witness and the Supreme Soul
My prostrations to you, the Guru.
Salutations to the God of the Southern direction
The teacher of all planes of existence
Who is the doctor for all diseases
and the store of all knowledge
Prostrations to the Guru and Hari (Vishnu)”
Say this sloka daily to obtain the blessings of Brihaspati (as Guru) and Dakshinamurthy.
