About Shyam


In the higher sense Jupiter is the divine grace, which can fulfill all of our needs without our seeking. He gives religious merit and spiritual beneficence. The other most important aspect of Jupiter is that he gives us true knowledge and wisdom as opposed to information based intelligence, which is the function of Mercury.

The following is the special name (nama) mantra for the Jupiter 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 Jupiter. 

"Om Strim Brahm Brihaspataye Namah"

The word 'Strim' in above mantra denotes Starana Shakti, the power of expanding, unfolding, blossoming and evolving. (The word 'Strim' should be pronounced as 'Streem'.)

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 Puranic mantra for propiating the Jupiter (19,000 times).

Devanam ca rishinam gurun kańchana-sannibhham
buddhi-bhutam tri-lokesham tam namami brihaspatim

When translated in English, it means:

"I bow down to Brihaspati, god of the planet Jupiter. He is the spiritual master of all the demigods and sages. His complexion is golden, and he is full of intelligence. He is the controlling lord of all three worlds."

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.
