Slokas for Marriage & Children

Ms. Shubha Satish who is a regular visitor and a contributor has sent the slokas and pooja procedure for Marriage and Children. Ms. Shubha says “Finally, I have tried to list some more shlokas & poojas for marriage & children. These poojas were actually passed on some generations and some are from word of mouth. I will be happy if our readers can benefit from this.”

Thanks so much, Shubha. I am sure many will benefit from these amazing slokas.

Shloka list

If you have any doubts about any of these, please find the same slokas in our Ontikoppal panchanga and Uttaradi Mutt panchanga.

Shlokas 1 and 2:- These two shlokas are for Shani peeda parihara. For this every Saturday, do pradakshina namskara for Ashwath vruksha (Peepal/arali mara). This is done in count of 7, 12, 24, 48 or 108.

** Pradakshina namskara for Ashwath vruksha should not be done in evenings and on Sundays.

Shloka 1:- Chant this shloka and perform pradakshina namaskara to the Ashwath vruksha for early marriage.

Shlokas 1 and 3:- If you find a shami vruksha beside arali mara, it is said to very good. Chant shlokas 1 and 3 while doing pradakshina namaskara for both of it together. This is done since the both the trees are considered as a couple and hence for marriage.

Shloka 4:– This shloka is for begetting a child.

Shloka 5:- This shloka is for safe & easy delivery of baby and mother.

Pooja List

The poojas mentioned in 2, 3 and 4 are exclusively for women.

1)      Most important, is the pooja of the family deity, either at your home or visiting temples and kshetras.

2)      Hosilu pooje: – Every morning, clean the hosilu with kemmanu, put rangoli in front of the main entrance of the house and the prayer area/room.  Then do pooja with arishina, kumkuma and gejje vastra for a count of 48 days.

3)      Tulsi pooje and Gowri pooje: Daily

4)      Lakshmi pooje: Light 1 each of ghee lamp and oil lamp for the Goddess Lakshmi at dawn or dusk in madi. Include Lakshmi ashtotthara in your pooja.

5)      Thursdays: Hejje namaskara or namsaskara for Rayaru. If possible, have one meal and palahara at night.

6)      Monday to Sunday: Each day it considered to be auspicious for certain Gods. Please do poojas or visit temples.

7)      Recite Lakshmi Shobhane, Sri Srinivasa Kalyana, Sri Vishnu Sahasra Nama and Sri Madhwanama.

    Thanks for the shloka list. I see there is a heading which says Pooja list but see nothing except suggestions.

    By any chance it is omitted.

      Maybe it was procedure, and it was a typing mistake by Shubha.

      As I collected and typed, the list seemed too long(which nobody likes to read). I have tried to shorten both lengthwise and descriptions. Well, I even read this post over and over to get what your opinion is. It feels like suggestions, but when I typed it was like a big list. I felt the same when others used to come up and tell me poojas, which was a long time back!
