    Navagraha Homam

    This homam is done to worship the nine planets i.e. The Sun, The Moon, The Mars, The Mercury, The Jupiter, The Venus, The Saturn, The Rahu, and The Ketu. Every planet has its own importance.

    Sun is the king of planets, which gives health. Moon is the planet, which rules over mind and gives success. Mars is the planet, which gives prosperity and wealth. Mercury is the planet which gives knowledge, Jupiter gives education, Venus gives the knowledge of art, music etc. Saturn gives happiness. Rahu makes the life stronger. Ketu prospers the family. All these nine planets are important, so in order to worship them this homam is done.

    Bad times are attributed to the different Grahas (Planets) and their position in the current time. These Grahas can be appeased by performing the Grah shanti Puja. Navagraha homam is used to remove Doshas or reduce the effect by appeasing these planets. The navagraha plays a vital role in deciding ones day to day activities. If 4 or more of the planets are not well placed in ones natal chart, navagraha homam should be performed.It is also performed if Rahu(Ascending node) and Ketu(Descending node) are afflicted.

    Then knowing that the destruction of Ravana was near, the Sun-God Aditya, surrounded by all the Gods in heaven, looked at Rama with delighted mind and exclaimed `Hurry up’ – `Be quick’.
