About Navagrahas (nine planets)
Homa is fire ritual and an intense spiritual practice which becomes powerful meditation technique when performed with devotion. We invoke the cosmic energy and visualize it in the fire. Offerings to the deity are offered through the fire.

‘Nava’ means nine. ’Graha’ means planets. As per Vedic Astrology, there are nine planets that influence our lives. The position of planet at the time of human birth will have influence on his actions and reaction to different situations in his life. Every Life as it is has its ups and downs. With there is improper planetary alignment for an individual it is called as a “dosha” or negative influence. Due to these “Navagraha doshas” people fall into depression and certain low moods. This low period may last for some period based on the power of the planet. However this can be averted with intelligence. Connecting to the cosmic intelligence through fire ritual and to avert any hindrances in life and to bestow tremendous peace and success in life, Navagraga Homa is conducted.

With Navagraha homa not only the doshas with the body but the space in which the ritual happens and the people who attend the ritual will all be benefited and blessed.
