Each  mantra needs to be chanted 108 times in each sitting, for their natural karakas.

Please note for people who can read devanagari script they can pronounce it like it shoul dbe but htose who can not read devanagari script then they would read transliteration and the problem is with pranounciation of beeja akshara (words), because some write it Pram, some Pran, some Prang, I used Praan to get the correct devanagari equivalent, but all end with same m like in Aum.

Kula devata:  Kula is family, Kula devata is your fmaily goddess who should be appeased in all your family gatherings, puja, inaugurations, birthdays, marriage celebrations etc.

Though each family follows certain deity as Kula devata, ostly people in south follow Balaji or Venkatesha as kula devata but still each person also has a kula devata seen from their Astro chart, like If Ista devata is Vishnu then Kula devata will be his female cosort Lakshmi because the blessings of a god are always in form of female energy which is Lakshmi for Lord Vishnu.

Palandevata: Sustaining deity of this world, It is seen in the 6th house from Amatyakaraka in Navamsa chart.
Atmakaraka (AK):  Atmakaraka is significator of soul or self, it actually shows the desire of the soul in this life, and each planet will show what that desire  is...and Atmakaraka is almost equal to the lord of 10th house when it comes to profession, and if Atmakaraka or lord of 10th house comes in to association with Amatyakaraka then success in the field of work is sure, Atmakaraka is also teh significator of self that is 1st house or Tanu bhava.

Sun: If Sun is the Atmakaraka then the desire is for fame, success, and power, and challenge is ego.

Moon : If Moon is the Atmakaraka then the desire is for comfort, happiness, love, challengeis to spread it to others.

Mars: If Mars is the Atmakaraka then the desire is for bravery and courage, and the challenge is self control in most voilent situations.

Mercury: If Mercury is Atmakaraka then the desire is commerce, business, communication, intelectual superiority, challenge is to understand others with low intellect and abilities.

Jupiter: If Jupiter is Atmakaraka then the desire is for greater knoweldge or ultimate knowledge to understand the creation, brahma vidya, and  utmost wisdom, and challenge is to deal with fools and mandbuddhi and in case of females it is to accept their husbands as guru no matter they might be mandbuddhi but the husband is a women's guru.

Venus: If Venus is Atmakaraka then the desire is for beautiful things, sex, love, lust, and in absence of  Jupiter or its aspect Venus tends to become little dirty, so the challenge is to have self control, and for females it is to remain chaste and keep or guard the power that emnates from chastity, it is a great women power but lot of descipline is needed, in Hinduism it is called Pativrata, meaning staying devoted to one man as husband (physically and mentally), guru and leader of her life this gives an immense power or healing and blessing to a women who is pativrata.

Saturn: If Saturn is Atmakaraka then the desire is for descipline, to bring that into the lives of the people in form od democracy and individuality and to follow strict path towards self elevation, and the challenge is people and only people, because people can be real pain in a democracy.

Rahu: If Rahu is the Atmakaraka then the native might be cheated in his or her life so the challenge is to remain honest and truthful even in the most adverse situations. tough!!

Rahu is stronger then Saturn when it comes to giving pain.

Amatya karaka (AmK): Significator of Career, Intellect, and Creativity and Amatya means minister.

Amatyakaraka is the planet with the second highest degrees in your chart, and its role is like minister to a king, and hence it guides the Atmakaraka towards its destiny with its intellect, mind, creativity, and profession.

Amatya karaka is significator of 2nd house (dhana bhava), 5th House (Putra bhava), 9th house (dharma bhava) and 10th house (Karma bhava)

Sun denotes power, authority, politician, leader,

Moon denotes, comfort, public servants, and all those who use their mind and intellect to perform.

Mars denotes, Bravery, courage, so all those who need these two to perform like Military, Police (But not in Canada) :-))

Mercury denotes, business men and women, commerce related, comuunication based,

Jupiter denotes, knowledge, so teachers, professors, instructors, guides, guru, pathfinders,

Venus denotes, the beautiful people (Physical beauty) all those related to Films, TV,

Rahu: It denotes shadow, deception, crime, pain, so people related to Politicians, :-)

If a planet comes into association with both Atmakaraka and Amatya karaka then the profession of that graha will come to pass.
