Navagraha Pooja | Navagraha Homam
Navagraha Shanti is the pooja performed based on the planetary positions in the horoscope. Bad deeds or karmas from ones previous birth along with the planetary positions of grahas (doshas) will have a bearing on a persons finances and well-being. In Hindu astrology these doshas are recognized and poojas are performed to negate the wrath of the planets. Navagraha Shanti or Navagraha Homam is recommended as a solution to these sufferings and has to be performed under the guidance of a Vedic Pandit. Navagraha pooja or homam pacifies malefic planets and strengthens benevolent planets, resulting in removal of obstacles in personal and professional life.
The Navagraha pooja (worship of 9 planets) is a time tested Vedic ritual, which combines the poojas for all the nine planets (or grahas) in our vedic sciences. The Navagraha pooja has the power to nullify or remove all doshas (or flaws) in ones horoscope and enable the person to prosper in life. The navagraha pooja or shanti of any particular graha creates a favorable environment to give the person the necessary strength and courage to overcome problems in their life.
