“Agni Roopena Devadermukham Vishnuh Paragatihi.. Agneyasya Puranasya Vakthaa Srothaa Janardanaha”
Agni Purana is one of the most popular Puranas among all the eighteen sacred (Ashtadasa) Puranas of ancient Hindu literature.. Agni Purana was revealed by Lord Agni – the Hindu God of Fire – to holy Sage Vasishta, several thousand years ago.
According to Agni Purana “Astrology is not a belief but a well defined science”..
There may be many strong references to Astrology in the holy Vedic scriptures and there may be several more in other Puranas as well. however, there’s one specific life changing chapter dedicated to Astrology in Agni Purana,which many ancient kings have used with accuracy to their benefit.
According to Astrology, the character traits of every person, born on this earth, is very well defined in his astrological chart if only there’s an expert who can read it properly; and rewrite it with precision and present it to that person, for his well being.
In Hindu Religion
There are many Hindu Gods and Goddesses with many many more elaborate methods of pooja and prayers.. Then which God to choose and which God to offer our prayers..?..
These are the two most intricate questions many in this world are often confused with and are always on the look out for answers at almost every place on this planet..
In the process, such people are constantly consulting many unholy religious heads and visiting fake God men and women for a convincing answer only to end up with furthermore confusion.. However, the first and the foremost thing everyone of us need to know is
“..God is one but His forms are many and behind every such form of God there’s a sanctity and a purpose ..”
Which means we can offer our prayers to any form of God we want to. or even to all His forms but we need to bear in mind that all our prayers shall still reach the One above all these forms and the One Who created all these forms..
And that ONE is the all powerful, all pervasive supreme commander of many such cosmic forms and forces Who in this sin filled Kali Yuga is called holy Lord Sri Venkateswara..
Lord Sri Venkateswara is the designated ruler of this Kali Yuga and shall remain in His idol form, on the Tirumala hills, as long as this Kali Yuga exists.. PEACE
Most importantly, the Agni Purana says,
“Those who know their janma raashi may offer their prayers to their ruling planet and the ruling God of their raashi.. However, those who do not know their birth date and janma raashi, for any reason, may still derive all the benefits and may still have all their rightful desires thoroughly fulfilled by offering all their prayers to Lord Sri Venkateswara alone..”
The Agni Purana further says “and if you know your date of birth and your janma raashi thoroughly well, then you can quickly achieve what you rightfully deserve in life by offering your prayers to that particular form of God who is assigned by His supreme commander to take care of all your needs in life..”..
I now hope you got my point…
According to Astrology,”..even devotion towards God in a man is born according to the placement of the planets in the twelve houses of his janma raashi.. If there are auspicious planets residing in the house of lagna, second and fifth houses of that man’s raashi, then that man will have greater devotion towards God and becomes a great devotee.. If not he would turn an atheist..”

Here are the slokas you may offer to Sun God; and to your your ruling planet and to all the other planets to bless you during your good and bad times..

C. And Then Recite This Sloka Meant To Please All The Nine Planets (Nava Grahas)
“Om Adityayacha Somaaya Mangalaaya Budhaayachaa.. Guruh Sukra Sanibhyascha Raahave Kethave Namaha..”
You may recite the sloka on your ruling God nine times in the morning after bathing, but before that, if possible go out and looking at the Sun God,chant all the other three slokas, just once, one after the other in the above given order.. If for any reason you cannot go out, just stand turned towards East and recite the above three slokas..
2. For any reason if any one of you do not know your janma raashi, you can still know it on the basis of the first letter of your name.
3. Additionally, the Agni Purana says,”it would do more good to you if you can perform special prayers to the respective forms of God on Sivaratri, Sri Rama Navami, Ganesh Chaturthi and Vaikunta Ekadasi..”
4.Agni Purana says “..all wives and husbands having problems in their personal life or married life may offer their prayers to Goddess Kathyayani Devi and regain that lost harmony in their life and live happily thereafter..”

12. Those who are suffering from financial problems or employment problems may offer their prayers to Lord Siva and Goddess Durga and see some great results..
13. These are the simplest methods the Agni Purana recommends to those who cannot perform elaborate procedures of pooja or manthra recitation..
However, there are many people who recite many manthras and perform many great spiritual activities and obtain great enlightenment, scholarly stature, amazing peace, a great arresting glow in their face and enjoy an eternal bliss wherever they are and in whatever stage they are in their life.. Eg – My beloved scholarly 90-year old Dad.
To the best of my abilities I have presented, for the well being of all my readers, almost all the solutions to all the human problems recommended by the sacred Agni Purana.. Please note.. I have only written what is recommended by the Agni Purana and haven’t incorporated any of my views into the article..
Secondly, there are many elaborate procedures and methods in spirituality that am sure shall take any seeker to that highest degree of enlightenment and wisdom in his life, but I shall write about them a little later.
Finally, what I would personally say is “Lord Sri Venkateswara is the supreme commander of all the cosmic forces and forms in this Universe in Kali Yuga and it is to HIM that all the above prayers you shall perform, to any cosmic form, would finally reach..
If for any reason you have no patience or time to do even the above mentioned simplest prayers then at least try to spend a little time in chanting this powerful sloka that helps us during all our problems and gives us inner peace..
“..Jaya Govinda Hare..Bhaja Govinda Hare..”
