shastras that by undertaking Narayan worship one may overcome all sorrows in
life. This worship has many forms. Best form is to invoke the Lord Vishnoo with
Purshottam mantra, followed by Shree Narayana Suktam, followed by Shree Sukta,
followed by Vishnoo Sahastranaamavali [1000 names of Vishnoo]. Benefits are
highest especially when such worship is undertaken during the month of

Second step - Cosmic Vastu Pujan:
Nava-Graha Shantih Pujan:
Peace mantra for nine planets/ Navagraha Stotra-Mantra
Navagraha Stotras are believed to pacify the planets and protect the reciter from the evil effects of the planets. In Sanskrit, "Nava" means Nine and "Graha" means planet. Navagraha Stotras are therefore stotras for the nine planets. In Vedic Astrology, Moon, Rahu and Ketu are considered planets.

Narayan Purrshottam mantra: These mantras
must not be recited with bad intentions and one must purify one’s self before
recital. To purify one must sprinkle ganga jaal in four directions and over the
head and all over the body. Reciting the jaal sudhi mantra of Vishnoo, we let
the water from the kalash upon which the coconut is placed to gently fall over
puja tray. We have not gone at length to elucidate the kalash pujan as this is
very detailed. Those interested can follow the KUMBH PUJAN

devam viswaasham viswaasambhuvam
viswam naaraayanam devamaksharam pramam padam
This universe is the Eternal Being (Narayana), the imperishable, the supreme, the goal, multi-headed and multi-eyed (i.e., omnipresent and omniscient), the resplendent, the source of delight for he whole universe.
paramam nityam viswam naaraayanam hariim
This universe is the Supreme Being (Purusha) alone; hence it subsists on That, the Eternal which transcends it (in every way), -the omnipresent Absolute which destroys all sins.
Patim viswasyatmeswaram saswatam sivamachyutam naaraayanam mahaajneyam viswaatmanam paraayanam
The protector of the universe, the Lord of all Souls (or Lord over Self), the perpetual, the auspicious, the indestructible, the Goal of all creation, the Supreme object worthy of being known, the Soul of all beings, the Refuge unfailing (is He).
Naaraayanaa paro jyotiratma naaraayanaa pariah naaraayanaa param brahmaa tattwam naaraayanaah pariah naaraayanaa paro dhyaatah dhyaanam naaraayanah pariah
The Lord Narayana is the Supreme Absolute; Narayana is the Supreme Reality; Narayana is the Supreme Light; Narayana is the Supreme Self; Narayana is the Supreme Meditator; Narayana is the Supreme Meditation.
Yachca kinchit jagat sarvam drshyate srooyatepi va antar bahisca tatsvaram vyapya naaraayanaah sthitah
Whatever all this universe is, -seen or heard of, -pervading all this from inside and outside alike, stands supreme the Eternal Divine Being (Narayana).
Anantamavyayam kavim samudrentam viswaa ssambhuvam padma kosaa praateekssam hrrdayam ccapyadho mukham
He is the Limitless, Imperishable, Omniscient, residing in the ocean of he heart, the Cause of the happiness of the universe, the Supreme end of all striving, (manifesting Himself) in the ether of the heart which is comparable to an inverted bud of the lotus flower.
Adho nishtya vitastyante nabhyaamupari tishtati jwaalamalaa kulaam bhaati vishwasyayatanam mahat
Below the Adams apple, at a distance of a span, and above the navel (i.e., the heart which is the relative seat of the manifestation of Pure Consciousness in the human being), effulges the Great Abode of the universe, as if adorned with garlands of flames.
Santaatam silaabhistu lambaatyaa kosaannibham tasyante sushiram sookshman tasmin sarvam pratishtam
Surrounded on all sides by nerve-currents (or arteries), suspends the lotus-bud of the heart in an inverted position. It is in a subtle space (a narrow aperture, the Sushumna-Nadi), and therein is to be found the Substratum of all things.
Tasyaa madhye mahaanagnir vishwachir visvato mukha sograabhugvibhajan tishthannahaaraa maajaraah kaavih
In that space within the heart resides
the Great Flaming Fire, undecaying, all-knowing, with tongues spread out in all
directions, with faces turned everywhere, consuming food presented before it,
and assimilating it unto itself.
Triyaa goordhwaa masdhassayee rasmayaatasyaa santataa santapayati swam deha mapadatalaamaastaagah tasyaa madhye vahnisikha aaneeyordhwaa vyaavasthithaah
His rays, spreading all around, side ways as well as above and below, warm up the whole body from head to foot. In the center of That (Flame) abides the Tongue of Fire as the topmost of all subtle things. (Note: Due to the attachments and entanglements of the Jiva in worldly enjoyment and suffering, the Consciousness is enshrouded in potential as well as expressed objectivity, and hence it appears like a tiny streak of flame within the dark clouds of ignorance. But when the Jiva rises above worldliness the Consciousness is realised as he Infinite.)
Neelaatoyaada madhyaasthad vidyullekhavaa bhaswaraa neevaaraasooka vattanvee peeta bhaswatyanoopama
Brilliant like a streak of lightning set
in the midst of the blue rain-bearing clouds, slender like the awn of a paddy
grain, yellow (like gold) in colour, in subtlety comparable to the minute atom,
(this Tongue of Fire) grows splendid.
Tasyaa sikhayaa madhye paramaatmaa vyavasthithaah saa brahmaa saa sivaah saa hariih sendraah soksharaah paramah swarat
In the Middle of That Flame, the Supreme Self dwells. This (Self) is Brahma (the Creator), Siva (the Destroyer), Hari (the Protector), Indra (the Ruler), the Imperishable, the Absolute, the Autonomous Being. Prostrations again and again to the Omni-Formed Being, the Truth, the Law, the Supreme Absolute, the Purusha of blue-decked yellow hue, the Centralised-Force, Power, the All-Seeing One.
Ritam satyam param brahmaa purusham krishnaa pingalam
oordhwaaretam viroopaaksham viswaroopaayaa vai namo namah
Prostrations again and again to the Omni-Formed Being, the Truth, the Law, the Supreme Absolute, the Purusha of blue-decked yellow hue, the Centralised-Force, Power, the All-Seeing One.
Aum naaraayanayaa vidhmahe vasudevaayaa dheemahi tanno vishnuh prachodayaat
We commune ourselves with Narayana, and meditate on Vasudeva, may that Vishnu direct us (to the Great Goal).
Vishnoorrnukam veeryaani pravocham yaah paarthivaani raajaamsi yo
askabhayaaduttaram sadhastham vichaakramanas tredhorugayo vishnuh
raaratamasi vishnuh syooraasi vishnuh dhruvamsi vaishnavaamasi vishnave tva
Which valor and deed of the all-pervading Vishnu may I glorify? He has enveloped the earth and he heaven even upto the minutest dust of creation. Vishnu supports the abode of gods, preventing it from being shaken from its position. He takes three strides (which may mean the three strides which Vishnu took in His incarnation as Vamana or the three strides which the sun is supposed to take in the sky during the day, or he form Vishnu is supposed to take as Agni, Vayu and Surya) as the most gloriously euoligised one. O Thou, Instrument of Yajna, who are the front and rear of Vishnu's form as Yajna, Thou who art its mouth and its connection. Thou art the firm support. Thou art verily Vishnu. I prostrate myself before Thee.

Recital of ashtha-laxshmee stotra releases one from the bondages of karma, sins and wrongfulness provided one repents and asks for forgiveness. Reciting it again and again twice more will confer with wealth. Recital thrice will remove all enmities. Recital five times will bring highest blessings from MAHA laxshmee.
Finally, recite shantih mantras:
Sarveshaam poornam bhavatu; Sarveshaam mangalam bhavatu
Sarve bhavantu sukhinah; Sarve santu niraamayaah
Sarve bhadraani pashyantu; Maakaschit duhkha bhaag bhavet
Meaning: Auspiciousness (swasti) be unto
all; peace (shanti) be unto all;
fullness (poornam) be unto all; prosperity (mangalam) be unto all. May all be happy! (sukhinah) May all be free from disabilities! (niraamayaah)
May all look (pashyantu)to the good of others! May none suffer from sorrow! (duhkha)
karnebhih shrunuyaama devaah; Bhadram pashyemaakshabhiryajatraah; Sthirairangaistushtuvaamsastanoobhih
Vyashema devahitam yadaayuh; Swasti na indro vridhashravaah
Swasti nah pooshaa vishwavedaah; Swasti nastaarkshyo arishtanemih
Swasti no brihaspatir dadhaatu; Om shantih, shantih, shantih!
Mrityor maa amritam gamaya
Meaning: Lead us from the falsity to
virtue; From darkness to Light
From mortality to Immortality
Aum poornamadah poornamidam; Poornaat poornamudachyate
Poornasya poornamaadaya; Poornamevaavashishyate
Meaning: That (pure consciousness) is full (perfect); this (the manifest universe of matter; of names and forms being maya) is full. This fullness has been projected from that fullness. When this fullness merges in that fullness, all that remains is fullness. - Peace invocation -Isa Upanishad
Sham na indro brihaspatih sham no vishnururukramah
namaste vaayo twameva pratyaksham
Brahmaasi twaameva pratyaksham brahma vadishyaami
Tanmaamavatu tadvaktaaramavatu Avatu maam avatu vaktaaram. AUM Shantih shantih shantih!
Meaning: May Mitra, Varuna and Aryama be
good to us! May Indra and Brihaspati and Vishnu of great strides be good to us!
Prostrations unto Brahman! (Supreme Reality). Prostrations to Thee, O Vayu!
Thou art the visible Brahman. I shall proclaim Thee as the visible Brahman. I
shall call Thee the just and the True. May He protect the teacher and me! May he
protect the teacher!
Oshadhayah shaantih Vanaspatayah shantih;
Vishvedevaah shaantih Brahma shantih; Sarvam shaantih Shaantireva shantih; Saamaa
Meaning: May peace radiate there in the whole sky as well as in the vast ethereal space everywhere. May peace reign all over this earth, in water and in all herbs, trees and creepers. May peace flow over the whole universe. May peace be in the Supreme Being Brahman. And may there always exist in all spheres peace and peace alone. Aum peace be to the celestial world, peace be to the spiritual world and peace be to the terrestrial world.
