Navagraha Pooja | Navagraha Homa

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.
