Navgraha Puja is performed for the wellness and stability of all the nine planets of your life. “Nav” means nine while “graha” means planet. These 9 grahas or planets influence our past, present and future. Hence it is important to have peace among all the grahas for wellness, peace and prosperity.
Dosha or negativity is known as the absence of proper alignment of an individual’s planet. These Doshas lead to mood swings, hamper success and act as a barrier between happiness and the individual. The period of the bad patch or Dosha may vary depending on the power of the planet which is not aligned properly.
PURPOSE OF NAVGRAHA PUJA
Navgraha pooja is conducted to achieve happiness, prosperity and success by the alignment of these planets or removal of these doshas. It provides people with excellent courage and power to face toughest situations.
