Planet (graha) Jupiter (Brihaspati)
Gurur brahaspathir jeeva suracharyo vidham vara,
Vageeso dhishino deerga samasru peethambaro yuva.
Teacher, Lord of prayer of beings, Teacher of demigods,
Greatest among the mighty, Lord of words, preceptor,
One having a long beard, he who is young and wears yellow silk.
Sudha drushtir, grahadheeso, graha peeda apaharaka,
Daya kara, soumya moorthi, surarchya, kudmala dhyuthi.
He whose sight is nectar-like, Lord of all planets,
He who steals away the bad effects of all planets,
He who is merciful, he who is soft looking,
He who is the teacher of devas, he who looks like a bud
Loka poojyo, loka guru, neethigno, neethi karaka,
Tharapathi schangeeraso veda vedya pithamaha
He who is respected by all, the teacher of all,
He who is just, he who implements justice,
Lord of all stars, He who is the son of Angiras,
He who is worshipped by Vedas, grandfather
Bhakthya brahaspathim smruthwa, namanyethani ya padeth,
Arogi, bhalavan sriman, puthravan sa bhaven nara.
He who remembers Brahaspathi with devotion and recites these names,
Would be free from disease, would be strong,
Would be wealthy, and would be blessed with several sons.
Jeevedvarsha satham marthya, papam nasyathi, nasyathi,
Ya poojayeth guru dhine peetha gandha akshathambarai.
He who worships him on Thursdays, with sandal, holy rice and silk,
Would live for one hundred years and all his sins would be destroyed.
Pushpa dheepo upa haraischa poojayithwa Brhaspathim,
Brahmanan bhojayithwa cha peeda shanthir bhaved guro.
Guru would remove all problems and bless with peace,
Those who worship with light, flower and presents,
And serve food to Brahmins.
(Thus ends Sri Brahaspathi Stotram, Prayer to Jupiter)
