Nakshatra Shanti or Janma Nakshatra Shanti is a fire ceremony ritual performed seeking the benevolence of the Janma Nakshatra deities for a happy, fruitful year and a peaceful life. Read on to learn all about Nakshatra Shanti to begin your NEW YEAR 2024 with Good Blessings

What is Janma Nakshatra or Janma Nakshatram?

Vedic Indian Astrology has formulated a set of twenty-seven (27) Nakshatras under which constellation we are all born. These are also called Janma Nakshatram or the Birth-Star, in whose house Lord Chandra (Moon God) occupied on that particular Thithi (Day). The Vedic Birth-Star List begins with star Ashwini and ends with Revati as the 27th Star.

When a child is born, based on the position of the Moon and the prevalent Nakshatram, time of birth, and place of birth, Janma Kundli or Jatakam is prepared. The star of the day (Thithi) becomes the Child’s Janma Nakshatra.

Nakshatra Shanti Homam is performed to please the Nakshatra Devatas (Nakshatra Deities) for their blessing and benevolence throughout the year. Through this Nakshatra Shanti Homa, Pujas are offered to Nakshatra Devatas on your behalf, Nakshatra overlord, Ishta Devata (Favourite Deity), Kula Devata (Family Deity), Lord Shiva, Nava Grahas (The Nine Celestial Planets), and many others thus ushering positivity into all aspects of your life.
