Navagraha Pooja is performed if the placements of the grahas (planets) are inappropriate in your horoscope. If you Peform Navagraha Pooja it provides you the required strength to overcome the harships.
What is Navagraha?
The term Navagraha denotes the nine planets that form the base for astrological calculations. The Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn and the two shadow planets, Rahu and Ketu, constitute the Navagrahas. The nine “grahas” or planets in our horoscope are karak of our karma, our desires and their results. Each of these nine planets creates an influence in our lives, which can be analyzed from one’s horoscope.
What is Navagraha Shanti Poojan?
In a native’s horoscope we come across some benefic planets (that brings positivity into your lives) and some malefic planets (that hamper your growth and development). The placement of these planets in the appropriate house is very important for you to experience a hassle free life. However, in some cases while these celestial bodies keep moving, they fall in the bad houses, or two planets who have a enemity with each other may fall in the same house. It may also occur that a house is crowded with more than two planets. In all such circumstances the personal and professional life of a person is majorly affected as they might experience a few or many hardships depending upon how intense the placements of these planets are.
Apart from this, during the birth of a native it might occur that 5 or more out of the nine grahas occupy unfavorable positions in the birth chart. In this case the health and development of the native is affected majorly.
A Navagraha Pooja is recommended in either case, especially the latter case, where the pooja has to be done once in the lifespan of the individual. A Navagraha Shanti Pooja is a Pooja executed to appease the planets and provide the much required strength to the native to face the unexpected bad time or the hardships one has to undergo.
How is Navagraha Shanti Pooja executed?
Navagraha Puja is undertaken to reduce the negative effects and improve the positive energies related to a native.
Basically the gods that rule the planets are worshipped. For example Lord Shiva who rules the Sun, Goddess parvati the Moon, lord Hanuman rules Mars, Lord Vishnu Mercury, Brahma Jupiter, Lord Indra Venus, Yam governed by Saturn, Kaal ruled by Rahu and Chitragupt ruled by Ketu. Without installing these gods the pooja cannot be performed.
Apart from other common materials, the sticks from castor oil plant are used for the Hawan. Around 71,000 matras are recited, which approximately takes 3 days if 5 pundits are performing the pooja.
Where and when is Navagraha Shanti Pooja performed?
