Since it is Shaani’s Hora [Saturn’s Hour] on a Monday [Moon’s Day – Lord Shiva’s Day] – and something Lunar resonant has been reminded of … it seemed appropriate to post this.
Rahur dhanavamanthri cha simhika chitha nandana,
Ardha kaya, sada krodhi, chandradhithya vimardhana
Rahu, Vizier of Danavas and Delighter of Simhika [His Mother]
Half-Bodied, Ever Wrathful, Moon and Sun Trampling / Eclipsing
Roudhro rudhra priyo daithya swar bhanur, bhanur bheethidha,
Graha raja sudhapayee rakadhithyabhilashtaka
Terrifying, Devotee of Rudra, Daitya, Svarbhanu [‘Censurer of the Sun’], Radiance Imperiler
Lord of Influencers [‘Grahas’], Who Received Amrit, Moon and Sun Desirer
These are the first two verses of the Rahu Stotra from the Skanda Purana – which I felt like taking a shot at translating. I may return to this, as well as provide additional annotation in future.
