INTRODUCTION

Chandra   is one of the nine planets in Hinduism. He is also called as Soma, Ambuli and Indu. He is the son of Atri and Anusuya. Chandra literally means the “Moon”. In most of the Hindu households, Lord Chandra occupies an important place, since, the young mothers while feeding food to their children in their house terrace, would introduce Lord Chandra to their children as their affectionate uncle. Worshipping Lord Chandra in the skies during full moon days is considered as a good act, since Lord Chandra would deliver his full radiance on us during that auspicious full moon day.

Chandra is described as a beautiful person. According to Hindu mythology, Chandra is the father of Budha (planet Mercury).

Chandra is the basis of Somvaar,that is Monday as per the Hindu calendar.

In Hindu mythology, there are numerous stories which are associated with Lord Chandra.

From the union of Chandra and Tara, Lord Budha (planet Mercury) was born. Lord Chandra married Daksha’s 27 daughters, but among his 27 wives, he mainly loved Rohini only. Hence his wife’s father Daksha cursed on Chandra to lose his powers. After praying to Lord Shiva, he partially released from the curse.

According to ancient texts, it is also told, that once Chandra laughed at Ganesha by seeing his appearance. Ganesha cursed him to decrease in size. Therefore, it is advisable not to see the moon (Lord Chandra) on Ganesh Chaturthi festival day.

According to astrology, if a person is having Chandra Mahadasa in his planetary position, Lord Chandra will give good memory, make a person to contain good health, develops creativeness and makes him a fearless person and give him sufficient wealth. Similarly, if a person suffers from Chandra Dosham, he will give physical and mental problems to him, and also will affect his relationships between the people around him. In order to overcome from these problems, it is advisable to worship Lord Chandra, especially on Monday’s and to visit Navagraha shrines in Lord Shiva temple, and to offer Abhishekham to Lord Chandra Bhagavan. Reciting various Mantras in praise of Lord Chandra, also will give good remedy to the problems.
