Sanaischara Stotram

Composed by
King Dasaratha

Translated by
P.R.Ramachander

(I found this rare stotra in a book let published by Vinayak Mandhir Committee  of New delhi, Here fearing the Movement of Sani to Rohini which was expected to cause famine in his country for twelve years , King Dasaratha   reaches the place of Sani to fight him, Instead he prays to him.  Sanaischara blesses him  that the famine will not occur and whosoever reads  this prayer   would realize all his wishes.)

Asya  Sri Sanaischara kavacham  Maha manthrasya   Kasyap Rishi  , anushtup Chanda , Sanaischaro devathaa

For the  great armour of Sani , the  sage is Kashyapa , the meter is anushtup   and the god addressed is Sanaischara.

Sam is the root  , Nam is the power  , Mam is the nail and this being chanted to  get rid of the problems created by Lord Sanaischara.

If he needs money he would get money,
If he wants kingdom he would get kingdom ,
If he wants   victory , he would be blessed with victory,
If he wants long life , he would get long life ,

And whatever he desires   all that would be given by the God who loves his   devotees,
And without any doubt , all that he thinks would be his.

Ithi Dasaratha raja krutham   sanaischara stotram   sampoornam.

Thus ends the prayer to Sanaischara composed by  king Dasaratha.
