Monday is ruled by the Moon whose deity is Lord Shiva. With Mars and Ketu getting closer together, it is extremely important to be careful as they have the potential to cause serious damage through accidents.
Chandrasekhar Ashtakam was written by Rishi Markandeya. One legend relates the story of how Lord Shiva protected Markandeya from the clutches of death, personified as Lord Yama. Mrikandu rishi and his wife Marudmati worshipped Shiva and sought from him the boon of begetting a son. As a result, he was given the choice of either a righteous son, but with a short life on earth or long-lived, foolish sons.
Mrikandu rishi chose the former and was blessed with Markandeya, an exemplary son, destined to die at the age of Markandeya grew up to be a great devotee of Shiva and on the day of his destined death, he continued his worship of Shiva in his aniconic form of Shivalingam.
The messengers of Yama, the god of death were unable to take away his life because of his great devotion and continual worship of Shiva. By accident or fate the noose mistakenly landed around the Shivalingam, and out of it, Shiva emerged in all his fury attacking Yama for his act of aggression. After defeating Yama in a battle to the point of death, Shiva then revived him, under the condition that the devout youth would live forever. Every single word in the song is absolutely profound and beautiful.
