Nakshatra Shanti Puja नक्षत्र शांति पूजा
Whenever a person takes birth on this mortal earth, he is born with some attributes like Birth date, Birth time and birth place. His destiny, which has been decided by the lord is revealed from the horoscope which can be made with the help of these attributes. When a person is born, the moon and the other planets have their own specific zodiac signs in which they are present. They have tremendous influences on the life of the person which is born.
Apart from these planets, there are 27 nakshatras or the divisions of the lunar path which also have a subtle yet powerful effect on the life of the person. Sometimes, it is the malefic Nakshatra which can be the cause of miseries of the person to a very high extent. We often find our kundalis with good yogas and planetary combinations but somehow or the other, misfortune prevails.
All this is happening due to the bad effects of the nakshatras in which the person is born.Vedic Astrology takes account of Janma Nakshatra, the Nakshatra in which the moon prevails during the birth.It influencesthe attitude, personality, physical appearance and future. Birth Nakshatra determines the thinking pattern, destiny, instincts and also governs the subconscious aspects of personality.
About this puja
The Nakshatra shanti puja is aimed at neutralizing the bad effects of the nakshatras prevailing at the time of birth of an individual. The motto of the puja is to nullify the malefic effects of the planets in their main periods(mahadasa) or sub periods(antardasa) and to attain benefic results from the same planets.
One can become averse to his good luck when malefic constellation entrap a person to an extent that he is unable to recover from the effects of the same. Many people have found the fact that despite of having no problem in their kundali, they are facing problems which suddenly emerge out of nothing or which are there right from the birth.
Nakshatra Shanti puja aims at correcting and pacifying the presiding deities of the nakshatras through various processes mentioned in the scriptures.
