When you are getting married, you are entering into a new phase of life. Leaving all your old goods and bads behind, you bind with a new person, a new family, a new relationship. In this new life, you are expecting and wishing for love, happiness and fortune in every aspect. Although it is your behaviour and your ways of treating the new family that will help you gain love and respect, but getting happiness is also a matter of luck. Whether you believe it or not, your luck plays a very important role in life. And this luck depends on the nine planets that are depicted in your horoscope, known as the ‘Navgrahas’.
This is the reason people perform the Grah Shanti Puja before the wedding which involves the families seeking peace during the wedding festivities and peace in the marital life of the soon-to- be weds. The Grah Shanti Puja denotes ‘Grah’ meaning house and ‘Shanti’ meaning peace; thus peace of the house. Every ritual that is conducted before, during or after the wedding ceremony has some or the other significance. The significance of the Grah Shanti Puja is the Navgraha Puja.
It is believed that the stars, planets and constellations have great influence over our lives. This puja is performed only to make sure that good luck and fortune become part of the lives of those who are soon to be bonded together for a lifetime. Both the homes of the bride and groom are seen to perform this puja. This is one way of beginning the festivities officially with the blessings of God. It is important that all the Gods and Goddesses attend the wedding to bless the couple. Thus, they are invited in this puja to give the festivity an auspicious start. Also, the ancestors and forefathers are invited. The negative influences of our grahas are eliminated with this Graha Shanti Puja through a Havan or Yagna. Ahuti is offered by the families to pray to the Navgrahas. Different mantras are chanted by the priest for different grahas.
Apart from this, every individual has some or the other individual negative star in his horoscope that works harmfully in his/her life. The most common unconstructive grahas seen in a horoscope are Rahu, Ketu and Magal. These grahas if not appeased may cause disharmony between the couple. This is why people make sure to take every measure to pacify the grahas that are on the negative side in the bride or groom’s horoscope before they are married. If you are looking for a Rahu-Ketu Shanti Puja or Mangal Nivaran Dosh Puja before getting married, you must get in touch with professional Pandits to help you perform the most appropriate rituals to pacify those stars.
Praying to Goddess Durga with the correct rituals can ward off all dangers, evils and inauspicious omens around you so that things can stay in control and not become chaotic. Performing the right Yagna can help you with a positive effect for 1015 years or more. For Mangal Dosh, we need the blessings of Lord Ganesh, Hanuman, Kartikeya and Goddess Gauri. Removing the Mangal Dosh will help you get rid of problems in marital life, problems in understanding the partner and health problems. However, you don’t need to worry about the procedures and rituals because MakeMyPuja will take care of all of that.
