Navgraha Homa – Day Two

Invoking the Nine Planets with Navgraha Homa

The Nine Planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, Venus, Jupiter, Rahu, and Ketu) are called graha in Sanskrit and Hindi, that which “grabs” or “possesses.” The celestial masses, which we know as planets, are only marks of these cosmic personalities, but not the grahas themselves. The grahas are said to have a substantial influence on our lives, which are interpreted from our birth horoscope charts, on our karmas and luck. In the Navgraha Homa, we make a Vedic Fire Sacrifice to appease the grahas, to lessen the malefic influences, and to strengthen the positive influences in our lives.
