Establishment of Yantra as a part of Ketu Remedies

Yantras are symmetrical diagrams and can be used to supplement the efficacy of mantras. They are very helpful in situations when a mantra cannot be recited, where the presence of deity in the form of the symbol is essential or where the native cannot bear the cost of gemstones. Yantras generally are drawn on Bhojpatra (parchment) and worn as a talisman on the body. If it is not possible for you to make it, the same can be engraved on an amulet or pendant and you may purchase it. There are Nine planets and every planet has its own specific yantra. These Yantras are collectively called Navgrah yantra.
