Dear Mr. Satrajit Mukerjee

Thank you for trusting in my astrological services. You have submitted the
following birth-data: 

Born on :

22 October 1959

Birth time  :

17:15 hrs.   (Zonal Standard Time in 24 hrs. format)

Birth-place :

Calcutta, India (022N32; 088E22) 
Standard Time Zone: 05:30 hrs. ahead of GMT
(Applicable Day Light Saving Time (DST) was 0.00 hrs.)

As per the above birth-data, your Vedic (sidereal) ascendant is Aries ('Mesh'), the Vedic Moon sign ('Rashi') is Gemini ('Mithun') and Janma-nakshatra (birth-star) is Aardraa (pada-1). Please be reminded that do not confuse it with your tropical (Western) ascendant and tropical Moon-sign, which may be same or a sign higher (in your case, tropical ascendant is 'Taurus'). 

Purpose of seeking the Mantra (your main concern):

"Though residing in USA for last 6 years, I have met with numerous failures, repeated break of profession, huge loss of money in my life. Till this age of 46 years it looks like life has been a total disaster - financially, physically, mentally. Unmarried till date and facing problems from home too. Can you please suggest proper remedy/Mantra?"
M A N T R A :
Mantras, being sacred sound vibrations, are composed of sacred syllables representative of and containing within great spiritual power, or energy. Utilising mantras allows us to concentrate and focus this spiritual energy. The mantras were perceived originally by the great seers or rishis from the primeval or cosmic era and translated into definite syllables with rhythm and melody.

If appropriate Mantra recited correctly, in obeisance with prescribed methods and rules, and with complete faith and belief, create certain vibrations and cosmic energy, which result in fulfillment of desires. These mantras are the most sacred and powerful medium to attain almost about anything in life, whether it is wealth, education or wisdom.

Each Mantra has a different use, and only the right Mantra results in the right solution, since each Mantra creates its own vibrations or cosmic energy.
FUNCTIONAL BENEFICENCE OF THE PLANETS:
For Aries ascendant, Sun is most benefic planet being the lord of 5th house. Mars is though the 8th lord (Dusthana Lordship), however by virtue of being the ascendant lord, it is also considered a functional benefic for Aries ascendant. Same principle may also be applied to Jupiter which is 12th Lord (Dusthana Lordship) on one hand and 9th lord (Trikona Lordship) on the other hand. However, many learned astrology scholars do not confer status of functional benefic to Jupiter and treat it as neutral planet. 

Mercury is most malefic planet for Aries ascendant being the lord of 3rd and 6th houses. Rest of the planets can turn into benefics or malefics or neutral depending on how they are placed and how they are associated in a horoscope. 
 
GENERAL-STATUS OF PLANETS IN YOUR BIRTH-CHART:
Here-in-below written is the general status of various planets in your birth-chart, like their lordship (whether they are lords of good or evil houses?), their posited status (whether they are posited in good or bad houses?). This is the first vital check before proceeding further to recommend you the suitable Vedic planetary mantra. 
(a) Trikonas Lordships (Most auspicious houses):
The trikonas, houses 1, 5, and 9, and their lords, are the most auspicious houses in the chart. The trikonas are dharmasthanas. They bring spirituality, knowledge, goodness, generosity, wealth and fame, especially if they are well endowed.
    a. Lagna lord:    Mars [Posited in 7th house]
    b: Fifth Lord:    Sun  [Posited in 7th house]
    c: Ninth lord:    Jupiter [Posited in 8th house]
(b) Kendras Lordships (Auspicious houses):
The kendras, or angular houses (1, 4, 7, and 10), and their lords, represent the pillars of the horoscope. They represent some of the most important and fundamental aspects of our lives - body and persona, home and mother, marriage and relationships, and career. The kendras and their lords are considered to be auspicious.
     a. Lagna lord:    Mars [Posited in 7th house]
     b. Fourth lord:   Moon [Posited in 3rd house]
     c. Seventh lord:  Venus [Posited in 5th house]
     d. Tenth lord:    Saturn [Posited in 9th house]
(c) Trik Houses/ Dusthana Lordships (evil houses of suffering):
Houses 6, 8 and 12 are considered to be the three evil houses of suffering or dusthanas. These houses and their lords bring difficulties, suffering, loss, anxieties, worries, obstacles, disease, incarceration, impediments, enemies, lawsuits, accidents, injuries, surgeries, and death like experiences into our lives. The are said to be evil and malefic houses. The third house is a mild dusthana and even then only in some respects, but houses 6, 8 and 12 are extremely malefic.
     a. Sixth lord:    Mercury [Posited in 7th house]
     b. Eighth lord:   Mars [Posited in 7th house]
     c: Twelfth lord:  Jupiter [Posited in 8th house]
(d) Trishadya Bhavas Lordships (malefic houses):
This group of 3rd house, 6th house and 11th house represents the three evil factors i.e. desire, anger and greed respectively. These three houses in the Trishadaya group are entirely opposite to the most important houses for spiritual advancement i.e. the 9th house, 12th house and 5th houses respectively. The 11th house is the most powerful of the Trishadaya group as it is the last member of the group. 
     a. Third lord:    Mercury [Posited in 7th house]
     b. Sixth lord:    Mercury [Posited in 7th house]
     c. Eleventh lord: Saturn [Posited in 9th house]
(e) Marakasthanas Lordships (Killer houses):
Houses 2 and 7 are marakas (killers). Houses 3 and 8 are houses of longevity, and since houses 2 and 7 are 12th to these houses, they cause a loss of longevity. Planets occupying or owning these houses cause death if the longevity of the individual is exhausted. If they operate before the time of death is promised, they can cause a disturbance of the health. 
     a. Second lord:   Venus [Posited in 5th house]
     b. Seventh lord:  Venus [Posited in 5th house]
(f) Other Lordships:
     a. Rasi lord (benefic): Mercury [Posited in 7th house]
DETAILED-ANALYSIS OF EACH OF THE PLANETS :
Now, I will analyze the nine planets, individually, in detail, checking their exaltation, dignity, combustion, shadbala, Natal Ashtakvarga status, benefic and afflictive aspects thereon etc., to finally arrive at 'Overall Functional Beneficence' (OFB) values for all of the 9 planets. The comparison between these OFB values will finally make the base of my recommendation to you for the most suitable Vedic planetary mantra.

Note:

One planet in this horoscope has been found situated in 'Mrityu-bhaga'.  The term 'Mrityu-bhaga'(MB) would literally mean a death inflicting (planetary) station. In ancient Jyotish texts, certain specified points have been identified in each sign where a given planet by its location at that degree of the Zodiac would fall in MB. Such a planet is likely to produce adverse results. There is a separate MB point for each planet in each sign.

A planet in MB invariably creates hurdles and problems for the native and dasa of such a planet normally create upheavals in native's life. MB is specially bad for health. Sometimes it can even be fatal. A planet when situated at this point - it affects the house(s) he owns, he is posited and the houses he aspects. The significations of the planet concerned are seriously compromised. Such planet may create very negating and challenging conditions for the native.

ANALYSIS CONCLUSION:
In your natal chart, the maximum OFB value is 58.06, got by MOON. On the other side, the minimum OFB value is -121.17, got by RAHU. Therefore, the Moon stands out as the best functional benefic planet for you while Rahu has been determined as the most damaging (functional malefic) planet in your chart. The OFB values of all nine planets, in declining order, are as follows: 
Moon: 58.06;  Mars: 41.52;  Venu: 34.37; 
Jupi: 15.81;  Ketu: -40.24;  Satu: -46.44; 
Sun : -58.61;  Merc: -81.83;  Rahu: -121.17
** N O T E **
The "Overall Functional Beneficence" (OFB) values of various planets, shown above either as a positive number or as a negative number, is the result of consolidation and quantification of various key astrological factors. It is, in fact, much more than just considering the house lordships of the various planets. General practice among most of the neo-astrologers is to consider 'House Lordships' of planets only.

My algorithm takes into consideration most of the principles told by sage Parashara in 'Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra' and also the principles recommended in other important Jyotish Classics, by various renowned Jyotish scholars, for determining the functional nature of different planets. Further, the importance of various considered astrological factors have been calibrated very carefully -- as told in ancient Vedic Jyotish texts. This is the reason that, at times, some less used, but very important, Jyotish factors may be found over-shadowing the net result obtained through the normally used Parashari principles to determine the beneficence of a planet. For example, (a) if a planet has very low Ashtakvarga points in its posited sign, (b) the posited sign itself is also weak in Sarvaashtak and (c) the concerned planet is also placed in a non-contributor's kakshya -- its beneficence will go down considerably, though it may be Lagna lord or 9th Lord. Similarly, if a planet is posited in 'Mrityu-bhaag', this fact will cause considerable decline in planet's beneficence.

Normally, the OFB values around zero should be considered as 'Average beneficence', while increasing negative OFB values here denote increasing malefic nature of the concerned planets in your chart. Same way, higher OFB positive values indicate higher benefic nature of the planets concerned.

MY RECOMMENDATION OF SUITABLE VEDIC PLANETARY MANTRA:
After comparing the above calculated 'Overall Functional Beneficence' (OFB) values of various planets in your birth chart, and also simultaneously keeping in my mind your current basic purpose of seeking the Mantra for daily chanting, I come to the conclusion that the most effective planetary mantra for you to recite will be of 'MOON'.

The following is the special name (nama) mantra for the Moon as preceded by it's Shakti or power mantra. It can be used to connect with the planetary deity and to energize all the higher powers of the Moon.

"Om Shrim Som Somaya Namah"

The word 'Shrim' in above mantra denotes Sharana Shakti, the power of refuge, surrender, peace and delight. (The word 'Shrim' should be pronounced as 'Shreem'.)

The following mantras are also considered very good for planet Moon. You may opt to recite one of the following mantra if you find it comparatively easy to remember.

"Om shraam shreem shraum sah chandramasay namah"

"Om Som Somaaya Namah"

The mantras are chanted on japa beads of 108 beads per string. They are similar to rosaries.

The Moon's mantra should be repeated 11,000 times on Mondays, or in the evening, specially around the time of the full Moon. Begin recitation on a Monday during the bright half of the Moon.

Presence of 'Sri yantra' and/or 'Laxmi yantra' at the place of recitation may help you in achieving the desired results faster.

Reciting the following Gayatri Mantra for Moon may also be beneficial for you.

"Om Nisakaraaya vidmahe, 
kalanaathaya dhimahi, 
tanno Somah prachodayat"

This Gayatri mantra consists of three parts. The first is the chants to the Moon. The second is the mantra proper. The third is a summary of the mantra's energies.

The Gayatri mantra is chanted at sunrise, noon and sunset. At dawn it is called Gayatri, the youthful form of the Goddess, consort of Lord Brahma, the creator. It is called Savitri, the mature form, at noon, the consort of Lord Shiva. It is called Sarasvati, the elderly form, at sunset, the consort of Lord Vishnu.
You may also opt to chant following Moon mantra (11,000 times).

Dahhi-shankha-tusharabham kshirodarnava-sambhavam
namami shashinam soman sambhor mukta-bhushanam

When translated in English, it means:
"I offer my obeisances to the Moon god, whose complexion resembles white cheese, the whiteness of conchshells, and snow. He is the ruling deity of the soma-rasaborn from the ocean of milk, and he serves on the ornament on the top of the head of Lord Shambhu."

GUIDE-LINES FOR CHANTING MANTRA:
A Mantra is manifestation of God in the form of those sounds. Mantras must be chanted or recited with unwavering devotion and motivation. Chanting them as a matter-of-course deprives them of power and is practically useless from the point of view of conscious growth, evolution and effect. 

It is best to find a quiet time and place to chant the mantra. Better to chant attentively for 5 minutes, fully concentrating on the mantra, than to chant for an hour when the mind and senses are too disturbed by unnecessary stimuli. Bathe, then create a spiritually conducive atmosphere by lighting incense and doing some deep breathing to relax the mind and body. If chanting mantras for spiritual liberation, sit facing the north and if the mantras are for fulfillment of material desires, sit facing the east. Sit down cross-legged, if possible, but if this is difficult simply find a comfortable position that can be maintained for at least a short while. Its no good getting into a 'lotus post' if your mind is screaming from the physical discomfort. However, if this pose is comfortable, there is no better position for meditation.
