25 Names of Ketu are the divine twenty-five names of Graha Ketu. All living beings get affected by the nine planets at every minute. Many circumstances in life are caused by the planets.
Ketu is generally referred to as a “shadow” planet. It is believed to have a tremendous impact on human lives and also the whole creation. In some special circumstances, it helps someone achieve the zenith of fame.
During the mahadasha of Ketu, one experiences a sudden fall from their relationships, material wealth, loss of status, and reputation; the Ketu Beej Mantra helps recover that easily.
Ketu originally represents detachment, spirituality, enlightenment, letting go of things we desire.
Ketu is often depicted with a gem or star on his head signifying a mystery light.
These 25 names are from Skanda Purana and it is believed that any person who recites these 25 names of Ketu daily gets fame, love, and abundance in life.
All of his obstacles get removed easily, he gets rich in a matter of time. The stotra also helps to harness the fruits of occult science or Tantra Vidya.
