Navagraha Homam

This homam has the power to counter flaws in the horoscope and enable a person to prosper in life in case astrological defects are the main blocks to his well-being. The homam is done to appease the nine planets i.e. the Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu, and Kethu. To keep all these 9 planets calm and quiet so that our fortune favors us Navagraha Homa and Aradhana is necessary. Every planet has its own importance.
