Express Starteller ( A Division of Express Newspapers Pvt. Ltd. ) - Navgraha Shanti Puja
|What is Navgraha Shanti Puja? |
The nine "grahas" or planets in our horoscope control our karma, our desires and their outcomes. Each of these nine planets exerts an influence in our lives, which is called "dasa" and it can be known from one's horoscope. Navagraha Shanti Puja is undertaken to reduce the negative effects and improve the positive energies related to a person.
|Why pray for Navgraha Shanti? |
The nine planets have special kshetras ( place of worship ) in South India. Most of them are concentrated near the Thanjavur district. Navagraha puja will be helpful, when the concerned planet dasa or sub-dasa is in operation or if the planet is associated with malefics or is in the 3rd, 6th, 8th, or 12th house.
