३) भास्कर माझ्या डोक्याचे, तर अमितद्युति माझ्या कपाळाचे, दिनमणी माझ्या डोळ्यांचे आणि वासरेश्वर माझ्या कानांचे रक्षण करो. 
४) धर्मधृणि म्हणजे घामाचे निर्मुलन करणारा माझ्या नाकाचे, वेदवाहन माझ्या तोंडाचे, मानद माझ्या जिभेचे तर देवही ज्याची पूजा करतात असा तो सूर्य माझ्या कंठाचे रक्षण करो. 
५) प्रभाकर माझ्या खांद्यांचे, जनप्रिय माझ्या छातीचे, द्वादशात्मा माझ्या पायांचे आणि सकलेश्वर माझ्या सर्वागाचे रक्षण करो. 
६) हे सूर्यरक्षात्मक स्तोत्र भूर्ज पत्रावर लिहून त्याला जो अर्पण करेल तो सर्वसिद्धि प्राप्त करतो.

These people are found more expensive. Mars along with Saturn shows loss in financial dealings. Such people may face legal actions. Mars along with Moon or Sun in Trikona or Labha yoga is good and such people can be found happy since their desires are found fulfilled.

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.

Aparadha Kshamapan Suti Stotra

Aparadha Kshamapan Suti Stotram

This Stotra is in Sanskrit. It is a very beautiful creation of shri Vasudevananda Saraswati.
He was a great devotee of Shri Datta Guru. On the contrary he himself was God Dattatreya’s incarnation. We believe that by chanting the name of God, we become Godlike. In this Stotra a devotee is telling God Dattatraya that never in his life time he (devotee) has recited God Dattaguru’s name. He is repenting it for now at the end of his life time. He asks God Dattatreya to forgive him. Further he asks for God Dattatraya’s blessings. He describes why and when he has not chanted name of God Dattatreya as follows.

Translation
1) Devotee is saying, O! God Dattatreya! Please forgive me for the sins committed by me; by using my body, by using harsh words or by using mind. God your heart is like ocean of kindness which has tremendous depth, length and breadth. Hence I know that you will forgive me.
2) Devotee is saying, O! God Dattatreya! In my earlier births (which may be higher or lower level births compared to birth as a man) I have never chanted your name. God Dattatreeya you know everything, you are everywhere, hence Please forgive me for the sins committed by me; by using my body, by using harsh words or by using mind. I know that you will forgive me.
3) I while in the comb of my mother, I could not recite the name nor after my birth I had done so as I caught in the maya of this world. Hence please forgive me for the sins committed by me; by using my body, by using harsh words or by using mind. I know that you will forgive me.
4) After my birth, I forget to recite your name because of my poor knowledge and as I was caught in the maya of the world. Many saints and enlighten sadhues told me and reminded me to recite your name but I failed to do so. Hence please forgive me for the sins committed by me; by using my body, by using harsh words or by using mind. I know that you will forgive me.
5) O! God Dattaguru in my childhood also I have not recited your name. I was in bad company and surrounded by people committing sins. This may be because of my sins committed in my earlier births. But I know that you are an ocean of kindness which is beyond all measurements and bounds. Hence please forgive me for the sins committed by me; by using my body, by using harsh words or by using mind. I know that you will forgive me. Hence please forgive me for the sins committed by me; by using my body, by using harsh words or by using mind. I know that you will forgive me.
6) 6) O! Kind hearted Dattaguru, when I was young because of making money for many enjoyments and other attractions; I had never recited your name. Now I am repenting for it. Hence please forgive me for the sins committed by me; by using my body, by using harsh words or by using mind. I know that you will forgive me.
7) 7) O! Kind hearted Dattaguru, when I was old; I have not recited your pious name because of bad health. Now I have become miserable and dependent. I am repenting. Hence please forgive me for the sins committed by me; by using my body, by using harsh words or by using mind. I know that you will forgive me.
8) O! Kind hearted Dattaguru; I have committed many sins in this birth and also in my earlier births. There is nobody other than you to make me free from all my sins. Hence please forgive me for the sins committed by me; by using my body, by using harsh words or by using mind. I know that you will forgive me.
9) O! Kind hearted Dattaguru; I have not recited your pious name, nor worshiped you, never sang your stotra and also not visited your temple. Now I am repenting for it. Hence please forgive me for the sins committed by me; by using my body, by using harsh words or by using mind. I know that you will forgive me.
10) O! Kind hearted Dattaguru; this Aparadha Kshamapan Suti Stotram of nine stanzas which covers many Shastras in short, is created by your follower, Vasudevanand Saraswati. We request you to offer shower of your blessing to me and other devotees by forgiving them for their sins and rest us in peace of your pious swaroopa. We are praying you and we know that you are an ocean of kindness and you will forgive us.

Thus here completes Aparadha Kshamapan Suti Stotram created by Vasudevanand Saraswati.
Astrology

Mars in this house having bad aspects of Saturn, Rahu, Ketu, Neptune, and Harshal indicates troubles in journey. Accidents, troubles or cancellation of journey are observed in such cases. Mars in Yuti yoga with Rahu shows failure in fulfillment of ambitions.
