Navagrahas

Navagrahas

After the Trinity (Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva), the Navagrahas (including Surya) have the maximum importance in Hindu rituals. They are considered to play a major role in deciding the destiny of man.

As per the navagrahas, i.e., nine planets, are Sury a (Sun), Chandra (Moon), Mangala (Mars), Budha (Mercury), Guru (Jupiter) , Shukra (Venus), Shani (Saturn), Rahu (North Lunar Node) and Kethu (South Lunar Node).

It is believed that the constant movement and subsequent positioning of these grahas over the course of one's life determine the present and future events of that individual. The study of grahas or planetary positions is one of the most important prerequisite for the Hindus.

Some people believe that by chanting the Navagraha Stotra, man is relieved from all his sins and bad effects that may occur to him by these grahas.
