Mahamate, MahaPradnya (One who is very intelligent and knowledgeable) which Japa at the time of death, is to be recited to be free from Karma Bandhana (Bondage of Death and Life)? So that Param Padam (Moksha) is experienced after death.

Pleased by the praise, Goddess Saraswati asked God Brahma what was his desire?
Then God Brahma asked Goddess Saraswati to bless him by giving divine knowledge. Goddess Saraswati said those devotees who will recite this stotra with faith and concentration, will receive divine knowledge.

Shri Dattashtakam

Shri Dattashtakam

Shri Dattashtakam is a Sanskrit stotra. It is a beautiful creation of Shri Aadi Shankaracharya. Whosoever recites this Stotra, receives all type of happiness, becomes free from all troubles, difficulties, success in all endeavors, his life becomes peaceful.
However this Shri Dattashtakam is to be recited daily with faith, concentration and devotion to receive all the benefits as above.

Shri Dattashtakam starts with bowing to God Dattatreya.

1) God Dattatreya is incarnation of God Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. So he is having all three virtues which are Raja, Tama and Satva. Brahmanda and three lokas (Pruthavi, Patala and Swarga) have become pious because of Trimurthy’s presence (God Dattatreya). Trimurthy that is God Dattatreya is protector of this Brahmanda. He protects his devotees and makes them free from fear. Aadi Shankaracharya requests God Dattreya to reside in his mind always.
2) This world is filled by God Vishnu, God Vishnu is filled with God Shiva and God Brahma along with God Shiva is filled by God Dattatreya. He (God Dattatreya) is worshiped by God Brahma and other Gods. He himself is in all the lokas and resides in the hearts (which are like oceans) of the peoples. Aadi Shankaracharya requests God Dattreya to reside in his mind always.
3) The Sun and All the Grahas (planets), the rushies who perform Yagnyas, pious Vedas, and Puranas have described God Dattareya just like God Shiva in a form of jyoti swaroopa (pious divine light). God Dattateya as described above in Shastras and Vedas is the protector of three lokas (Pruthavi, Patala and Swarga). Aadi Shankaracharya requests God Dattreya to reside in his mind always.
4) God Dattatreya creates, protects and destroys everything. So also he makes everybody free from the bondage of life. He resides on the pious Kailsa parvata (mountain), he has held moon on his head, and worn rudraksha garlands. He has many weapons in his hands. Bow, Arrows, Chap, Musal, Khatvag are these weapons. Aadi Shankaracharya requests God Dattreya to reside in his mind always.
5) God Dattreya is having a very pious Chitta (mind), his body is shining like pure gold and his intelligence appears on his face. He is enjoyment for his devotees. He makes us free from bondage of life and ongoing process of birth and death again and again. God Dattatreya becoming as Dattatreya give his blessings to the Brahmanda. Aadi Shankaracharya requests God Dattreya to reside in his mind always.
6) God Dattatreya is like Oma roopa (form), supreme, impartial, selfless, pious, without any attachments, happy, my guru (master) and always as pious as divine light. He is truth, the true knowledge, occupied all the Brahmanda (World), he is our God and hence Aadi Shankaracharya requests God Dattreya to reside in his mind always.
7) God Dattreya has held danda in his hand, wore rudraksha garlands around his neck, hands and wrists, he has applied Bhasma (pious ash) on his body, his eyes are like lotus, he found in Kolhapur performing pious Bhiksha (people give food to him in the afternoon). He performs his pious Snana (bath), Japas in pious kashi (Banaras) and he resides in Mahur. Aadi Shankaracharya requests God Dattreya to reside in his mind always.
8) The people who resides on the bank of Krishna river worships God Dattatreya’s Paduka (foot prints) and receives blessings from him. There is no other than God Dattateya who gives us Mukti (makes us free from bondage of life, sorrow and all difficulties). Aadi Shankaracharya says it is very true and God Dattatreya is for our protection, help, happiness and giving blessings to us. Aadi Shankaracharya requests God Dattreya to reside in his mind always.
Thus here completes Shri Dattashtakam created by Aadi Shankaracharya.

Bilvashtakam

Bilvashtakam
Bilvashtakam is in Sanskrit. It starts with bowing to God Ganesha. It is a very pious Shiva Stotra. God Shiva likes Bilva (tree) leaf. In this stotra, how Bilva leaf is pious and why it is offered to God Shiva when we worship (pooja) him, is described. While performing Pooja of God Shiva, it is said to be incomplete if we don’t offer Bilva Patra (Leaf).
1) I offer Bilva Patra (A Bilva Patra is so called leaf having three small leaves.) to God Shiva. This Bilva Patra is a form of the three human qualities. Good Virtue (Satva), Passion (Raja quality) and Irascible (Tama quality). This Bilva Patra is like three eyes, Sun, Moon and Fire. It is like three weapons. It is destroyer of sins committed in earlier three births. I perform pooja of God Shiva with such Bilva Patra.
2) I offer Bilva Patra to God Shiva. This Bilva Patra is very pious, soft and there are no holes on it. As such it is complete in it self. It is like three branches. I perform pooja of God Shiva with this Bilva Patra.
3) I offer Bilva Patra to God Shiva. After performing pooja of Nandikeshwar (God Shiva) by offering complete Bilva Patra (as described in 2 above) to him, we become free from our sins.
4) i) Soma Yadnya (Sacrifices and such like things) is performed to receive blessings from God, to accomplish good things in our life and to destroy our sins. ii) People who perform religious duties even for others offer Shaligram (God in the form of a very pious Stone) to God Shiva. These (i) and (ii) are very pious and good things however to offer Bilva Patra to God Shiva is much more pious thing of all. Hence I offer Bilva Patra to God Shiva.
5) i) Long time back Kings and rich people in India were donating elephants. ii) Ashwamedha Yadnya (Sacrifices and such like things) were performed. iii) At time of marriage, father of bride is donating his daughter to bridegroom, and this is considered as a very pious thing performed by him. Above i), ii) and iii) are no doubt very pious things performed however offering Bilva Patra to God Shiva is much more pious thing than all. Hence I offer Bilva Patra to God Shiva.
6) Bilva Tree is created By Godess Laxmi who is wife of God Vishnu. God Shiva Likes Bilva Tree (Bilva Patra) very much. I perform pooja of God Shiva with Bilva Patra.
7) When we see Bilva Tree and touch it, it simply destroys our sins. Even our very bad and biggest sins are removed and we become free from our sins. Hence I perform pooja of God Shiva with Bilva Patra.
8) Lower part of Bilva Patra is God Brahma, Middle part of Bilva Patra is God Vishnu and Upper part is God Shiva himself hence I perform pooja of God Shiva with Bilva Patra.
9) Whosoever recites this Bilvashtakam by sitting in front of God Shiva temple will become free from all his sins and rest in Shiva Loka along with God Shiva after his death.
Thus here completes Bilvashtakam.
Astrology
Mars in tenth house is considered as good. Such people are found having some position or power to control others. They are found good in administration. They can control others and get work done, since they have power in their hand. Such Mars is found good for people in service or for those who are in business or profession. Magistrate, Police department, Law enforcement departments, Military and other Government departments which are enforcing some action are found suitable for the people who are having Mars in their tenth house. However Mars in this house if is in bad aspects of Saturn, Harshal or Rahu then such people face with bad public opinion about them. However such people don’t care for it. Mars if is in Yuti yoga with Jupiter in this house then such people become unable to exploit their virtues. Mars in yuti yoga with Saturn creates troubles in service life. They may fear demotion in service life. Such people become victim of a scandal and may require resigning from service. Business gets ruined. Mars in yuti yoga with Harshal in this house indicates frequent and sudden changes in service or in business. They have to face many troubles. They even loose their name and may have to face court cases. Mars along with Rahu in this house in yuti yoga indicates some higher position in service however they have to fight with the consequences of their earlier wrongful acts. Mars other than Jupiter, Harshal, Saturn and Rahu in this house along with other planets in yuti yoga bears good fruits. Such people are found successful in their mission on their own efforts and become famous.
