For: All round beneficial effects and removal of all doshas.
A nakshatra is one of the 27 divisions of the sky. Each one of them covers thirteen degrees and twenty minutes of the zodiac. Each Nakshatra is the head of a particular group of stars. The star constellation in which moon is placed at the time of one's birth is called Janma Nakshatra. Janma Nakshatra determines our thinking pattern, nature and destiny. It also determines our instincts as well as the subconscious aspects of our personality. Performing a nakshatra shanti homam accrues all round beneficial effects and removes all doshas.
It is said in our vedas that Nakshatra Puja is very important in our lives. It is conducted once a year for the betterment of one's Life.
During Nakshatra Pooja, the God ruling the Nakshatra is worshipped. If you are born under any one of the seven inauspicious Nakshatra, pooja for the particular God who rules the Nakshatra is performed. Here is the list of the Ruling Gods of the seven evil Nakshatra.
