Smaramyaham Sada rahum
Muthu Swami Deekshithar
Nava Graha Krithi-VIII Rahu
Raga Rama manohari
Smaramyaham Sada Rahum Soory chandra veekshyam Vikrutha deham
Surasuram roga haram sarpadhi bheethi haram,
Soorpasana sukhakaramSoolayudha dhara karam
Karala Vadanam kadinam kayanaarna karunardhraa pangam,
Chathurbhujam Khadga Ketakadhi dharanam, Charmadhi neela vasthram,
Gomedhakabharanam Shani shukra mithra guru guha santhosha karanam.
I always think of Rahu who sees sun and moon and has a deformed body
He is both deva and asura , He cures diseases, he takes away fear of snakes,
He sits comfortably on a winnow and holds a trident in his arms.
He who has a horrible face , He who is hard,
He who takes mercy when worshipped by Kayana chant,
He who has four hands , He who holds sword and shield,
He who wears blue cloth and leather,
He who wears Gomedhaka gem,
He who is friends with Shani and Shukra and is the cause of happiness to Guru Guha.
