Dhruva Stuti This great prayer occurs in ninth chapter of fourth Dasakam (Slokas 6-17) of the Maha Bhagawatha Purana. Dhruva was the son of king Uthanapatha out of his wife Sunithi. He had a half brother whose mother was Suruchi who was the favourite of his father. One day when the young child Dhruva who was only five years old saw his brother was sitting on the lap of his father , he also wanted to sit there. But his step mother Suruchi told him that the luck was not fated for him and asked him to do penance. The young child took it seriously and when he was walking to the forest, sage Narada met him and taught him the manthras to do penance. After a great penance Lord Vishnu appeared before him,. This prayer is what he chanted at that time. Lord Vishnu blessed him with a long life and at the end to become the pole star.
