Chevvai or Mars is a warrior planet. Also known as Mangal or Kuja, he is considered the commander among planets. Vedic Astrology regards Chevvai as an important member of the Nava Grahas, the nine planets that strongly impact the lives of the people and holds that the study of his position and movements, along with that of the other planets can reveal the past, present and the future of any individual.

Chevvai is a high energy planet, whose colour is red and direction, south. He represents aspects like courage, aggression, armed forces, police, administrators, enemies, weapons, engineering and metals. He is called Bhatra Karaka and also as Bhoomi Karaka, as he represents the brother and the landed property respectively. Chevvai takes about 45 days for travelling through a sign and hence, about 18 months for completing a round of the zodiac.

Mars when well-placed can give strength and energy. However, an afflicted Mars can make a person restless and short tempered, and face accidents and injuries.

This sloka is in praise of Subrahmanya or Karthikeya, who is regarded as the Lord of Chevvai Graha. Chanting of this powerful hymn with faith can be very effective in mitigating Chevvai afflictions.

This divine Hymn describes about Lord Muruga (Subramanya) who is the youngest son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati.

"Sindhooraaruna kaanthimindhu Vadhanam Keyoorahaaratimihi
Divyairaabaranaiar Vibhooshithathanum Svargasya Sowkyappratham
Ambojaa bhaya sakthi kukuda dharam Rakthaangaa thaam sukam
Subrahmanya Mupaasmahe Pranamathaam Beedhipranaachotyatham"
