As per Indian Vedic Astrology it is seen that there are total of nine planets that have influence on the life of a native and their placement in the Natal chart effects the course of life. The planets have effect of various aspects of life such as love, marriage, career finance, health etc. And as every Life as has its ups and downs they are mainly due to the effects of the planets. Planets in the horoscope have their own combinations which forms the yogas or the doshas (negative influences) and due to these “Navagraha doshas” one faces obstacles and hindrances in his/her life.
Though the planets have their effects but these malefic doshas or negative effects can be minimized by doing the Nav Grah Puja (worship of the 9 planets). By getting this puja done through a well versed purohit in the right manner one is blesses with peace and success in life.
Navagraha Puja is done on a special day (muhurat) which is derived in accordance with the horoscope of the native for who it is to be performed in order to get the maximum benefits.
In the Navagraha Homam the chanting of the mantra for the nine planets Keu, Venus, Sun, Moon, Mars, Rahu, Jupiter,Saturn and Mercury are done. These mantras are done to appease the navagrahas. This is also called the process of Graha Shanti.
