Ketu yantra may be used to increase strength of Ketu and gain benefits from it. Hence this yantra may be used when Ketu is duly benefic and it may also be used for partly benefic and partly malefic Ketu in many cases. However, this yantra is generally not used for highly malefic Ketu. An exception to this rule may be in case when Ketu is a converted malefic in a horoscope. This concept has been discussed in the article ‘How do yantras Work’.
In general, Ketu yantra seems to do the same job that Cat’s Eye may do. Though the broader results provided by this yantra and Cat’s Eye may be similar; there are differences. These differences have been discussed in the article ‘How do yantras Work’. As Ketu gains extra strength through its yantra; the native may witness better results related to significances of Ketu; provided Ketu is duly benefic in his horoscope. Even if Ketu is partly malefic or it is a converted malefic; its yantra may not be suitable. The energy of Ketu is difficult to handle for most people. Hence this yantra should be used only if Ketu is duly benefic in a horoscope.
Though Ketu yantra may produce similar or better results than Cat’s Eye; the latter is still much more preferred by most astrologer. This is because of the reason that a native wearing Cat’s Eye doesn’t need to do anything in order to get such benefits through it; apart from wearing it. On the other hand, a native using Ketu yantra may need to pray to it on daily basis in order to benefit from it.
To have an idea; in order to witness similar benefits as those given by a 4 carat Cat’s Eye of good quality, the native may need to chant about 1500 to 2000 Veda mantras or Beej mantras of Ketu on daily basis. Since the process is time consuming; most natives may choose to go with Cat’s Eye instead of Ketu yantra. However, if a native is not able to afford Cat’s Eye; Ketu yantra may do the job in such case, though it may require effort from native’s end.
In order for this yantra to render proper benefits to a native; it should first be purified, energized and programmed for the native through Vedic procedures. Looking at the process; Ketu yantra is purified in the first step. Through Vedic procedures; any type of negative energy attached to this yantra is removed during this step. Since many people may have left their energy/aura imprints on this yantra before you buy it; these imprints need to be removed.
In the second step; this yantra is energized and programmed for you. For this; your as well as your father’s name may be used. Hence the yantra is prepared and energized specifically for you; with the chant of Ketu mantras. In general; 11,000 Veda mantras or Beej mantras of Ketu are used to energize this yantra and they are more than sufficient to energize it. If the number of mantras is reduced a lot; the process of energization may not be carried out properly and the native may not benefit from this yantra in the best possible way.
Once you receive your purified, energized and programmed Ketu yantra; the next step is to establish it in your house, office, wallet or pocket; depending on the size of the yantra you have chosen. The most commonly used size of this yantra is fit for establishing it in your house or office. For best results, you should establish Ketu yantra on a Tuesday and you should establish it in the place of worship in your house or office; in case you have chosen a bigger size. If you’ve chosen a smaller size, you can keep it in your pocket or wallet.
During the time your yantra reaches you and you establish it; you can keep it at any clean place, like in a cupboard. After taking bath on a Tuesday morning (7 AM to 11 AM), take your yantra and go the place you want to establish it. Place the yantra there, sprinkle some holy water or unboiled milk on your yantra, chant 108 Beej mantras of Ketu, pray to Ketu and ask for the best possible results. Your yantra has been established. In case you need to keep it in your pocket; place it somewhere clean after taking bath; complete the aforementioned steps and then put it in your pocket.
In order to receive sufficient energy through this yantra, you need to attend to it on daily basis. Every day after taking bath or preparing yourself for the day, go to the place where your yantra has been placed. Focus on it, chant 108 or more mantras of Ketu and then request your specific wishes from this yantra. In case you are carrying this yantra in your pocket, simply hold it in your hands after bath, focus on it, chant 108 or more mantras of Ketu and request your wishes from this yantra. Attending to your Ketu yantra on regular basis establishes proper connection between you and the yantra; which helps you get optimum benefits through it.
