MANTRA FOR KETU - - To be chanted 17,000 times.
Palasha-pushpa-sankasham taraka-grahu masta-kam rowdram row-drat makam goram tam keytoom prana-mam mya-ham
I offer my obeisances to the violent and fearsome Ketu, who is endowed with the potency of Lord Shiva. Resembling in his complexion the flower of
a palasa plant, he serves as the head of the stars and planets.
