Naadi and significance of Nava Grahas

The celestial bodies, Navagrahas comprise Surya (Sun), Chandra (Moon), Mangala (Mars), Budha (Mercury), Guru (Jupiter), Shukra (Venus), Shani (Saturn), Rahu and Ketu (The two nodes of the eclipses- the solar and the lunar). Uranus, Neptune and Pluto were not included in Navagrahas because they were deemed too far away to exert any influence. The word Graha means, 'to attract'. Those celestial bodies are believed to affect the physical and mental condition of human beings. The Grahas are considered to have both a malevolent as well as benevolent influence on the day-to-day course of one's life. They can be invoked to aid in solving of the pettiest of tribulations. It's deemed in ones own interest not to provoke them.

They occupy a unique niche in the Naadi Predictions and also in Indian Hindu pantheon. They are not the part of the Triumvirate of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Nor they are major deities akin to the mother goddesses Saraswati, Laxmi and Parvati or other such as Kartikeya, Hanuman, Ganapathi, or Ayyappa.

What exactly do the Navagrahas do? Why are they worshipped?

In Indian philosophy, the theory of Rebirth and theory of Karma plays cardinal role. As explained else where in the website, the person is responsible for his present plight due to the previous good or bad deeds. Through 13th Kandam (Chapter) of Naadi Predictions, the seeker is told to perform the services or Pujas /Archanas of the concerned Navagraha to overcome the bad or malefic effect thereof. Performance of Pujas and simultaneously providing food to the hungry and water to the thirsty, lighting of lamps are some of the means by which one gets rid of papas or bad deeds and boost the punyas or good and benevolent acts.

One of the main reasons why the Naadi Predictions are referred to is, to intuit the seeker to the performance of Shanti and Parihar rituals at the earliest and in the prescribed manner. One should visit as per the directions gained in the Naadi Palm leaf under the guidance of the Naadi readers. This chapter will give enough guidance for the needy.

Navagrahas are considered to be intermediaries between the principal deity in the temple, almost always Shiva and worshipper. They each are in charge of specific areas of concern to the devotee, be it health, wealth, pursuit of knowledge, professional gainer just about any thing. The belief is that worshipping the specific graham for specific need gets the devotee the boon he craves.

In spite of wide spread worship of Navagrahas in many parts if India the fourteen Temples of these deities in the vicinity of river Kaveri delta known as Kumbhakonam are 'One of a kind'. Please read more about it :
