MANTRA FOR MARS - - To be chanted 10,000 times:
Daranee garbha sambootam vidyut-kahntee sama-prabam koomahram shaktee hastam-cha mangalam prana-mam mya-ham.
I offer my obeisances to Sri Mangala, god of the Planet Mars, who was born from the womb of the earth goddess. His brilliant effulgence is like
that of lightning, and he appears as a youth carrying a spear in his hand.
