Kanjanur Sthala Varalaru, dosham & remedial measures
The presiding deity Agneeswarar is the embodiment
of Sukran. Sukrachariar was the Guru of asuras. He had got the
blessings from Lord Siva after severe penances. In the Vamana
Avataram of Lord Vishnu, Vamana sought three foot steps of land
from Mahabali, an asura king. Realising Vamana to be no mere
mortal, Sukrachariyar assumed the form of a bee and tried to
block the flow of water from the kamandalam. Vamana picking up a
pavithram blinds Sukracharya in one eye while trying to unclog
the hole in the kamandalam.
Sukracharyar has the prowess to bring the dead to
living by virtue of his knowledge of Amirtha Sanjeevini Mantra.
Using this mantra, in the asura war against the devas, he revived
the slain asuras. This helped the asura army swell. The devas
prayed to Lord Siva for help, who swallowed up Sukracharya in a
fit of rage. After residing in Lord SIva's stomach in a
siddha state, he emerged from Lord Siva's stomach.
Sukra endows those who pray to him with wealth,
pleasure, wife, prosperity, vehicles. He is the next most
beneficial planet after Guru. If in a person's horoscope,
Sukra is well placed, then the person will enjoy pleasure,
beautiful wife, wealth, house, vehicle, good food, fame, love,
affection, marraige, siblings, governmental help, chance to
govern the country/state and hold influential status.
If in a bad position, the ward will experience a
family devoid of love and ties, bad life, enimity amongst family
and friends, Kalathira dosham. By praying to Sukra these problems
could be mitigated. Wife, arts, sculpture, love, vehicles are the
beneficial aspects of Sukra.
