Planet (graha) Ketu (South Node)
Kethu, Kaala, kalayitha, dhhomrakethur, vivarnaka,
Loka Ketu, maha Kethu, sarva kethur, bhaga pradha.
Ketu, he who causes death, he who makes time, smoky headed one,
One who is multi coloured, head of people, great head,
One who has only head, one who torments the Sun.
Roudhro, Rudhra priyo, rudhra, kroora karma, suganda druk,
Palala dhooma sankkhasa, chithra yagnopaveetha druk.
He who is angry, he who likes Shiva, he who is fierce,
He who does cruel deeds, He who is seen by pleasant smell,
One who resembles the smoke of husk, one who is seen wearing sacred thread.
Thara gana vimardhi cha jaimineeyo grahadhipa,
Ganesa dhevo, vignesa, visha rogarthi nasana,
One who troubles star groups, one who belongs to the clan of Jaimini,
One who is the lord of all planets, one who is God Ganesa,
One who is the lord of obstacles, one who destroys disease due to poison,
Pravrujyadho jnanadhascha theertha yathra pravarthaka,
Pancha vimsathi namani kethoryahatham padeth.
One who has forsaken everything, one who is wise,
And one who makes pilgrimages to sacred places happen.
If these twenty five names of Ketu are read,
Thasya Nasyathi badha cha sarva Kethu prasadatha,
Dhana dhanya pasoonaam cha bhaved vrudhir na samsaya.
Due to the grace of Ketu all his troubles will come to an end,
And without doubt his wealth, cereals and animals will increase.
