grahas") happen to be planets: Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, and Saturn. The sun, moon, Rahu (north or ascending lunar node) and

Shani is one of the nine primary celestial beings in Hindu astrology (that is, Vedic astrology). Shani is embodied in the
planet Saturn. Shani is the Lord of Saturday. He is Tamas in nature and represents learning the hard way, Career
and Longevity.The origin of word comes from the following: Shanaye Kramati Sa: i.e. the one who moves slowly.
Saturn takes about 30 years to revolve around the Sun, thus it moves slowly compared to other planets, thus the
Sanskrit name. Shani is actually a demi-god and is a son of Surya (the Hindu Sun God) and his wife Chhaya. It is
said that when he opened his eyes as a baby for the very first time, the sun went into an eclipse, which clearly
denotes the impact of Shani on astrological charts (horoscope).He is depicted dark in colour, clothed in black; holding
a sword, arrows and two daggers and variously mounted on a black crow or a raven. He is depicted at other times as
ugly, old, lame and having long hair, teeth and nails. He presides over 'Shani-war' or Saturday.

chariot drawn by eight black horses. He is a Tamas Asura who does his best to plunge any area of one's life he
controls into chaos. The rahu kala is considered inauspicious.According to legend, during the Samudra manthan, the
asura Rahu drank some of the divine nectar. But before the nectar could pass his throat, Mohini (the female avatar of
Vishnu) cut off his head. The head, however, remained immortal and is called Rahu , while the rest of the body
became Ketu. It is believed that this immortal head occasionally swallows the sun or the moon, causing eclipses.
Then, the sun or moon passes through the opening at the neck, ending the eclipse.

Ketu is the Lord of Descending/South lunar node. Ketu is generally referred to as a "shadow" planet. He is
considered as Tail of the Demon Snake. It is believed to have a tremendous impact on human lives and also the
whole creation. In some special circumstances it helps someone achieve the zenith of fame. He is Tamas in nature
and represents supernatural influences.Astronomically, Ketu and Rahu denote the points of intersection of the paths
of the Sun and the Moon as they move on the celestial sphere. Therefore, Rahu and Ketu are respectively called the
north and the south lunar nodes. The fact that eclipses occur when Sun and Moon are at one of these points gives
rise to the story of the swallowing of the Sun and the Moon.

Kubera (also Kuvera or Kuber) is the king of the Yakshas and the lord of wealth in Hindu mythology. He is also
known as Dhanapati, the lord of riches. He is one of the Guardians of the directions , representing the Uttara-disha,
meaning north of 4 directions in Sanskrit.Kubera is also the son of Sage Vishrava (hence he is also called
Vaisravana) and in this respect, he is also the elder brother of the Lord of Lanka, Ravana . He is said to have
performed austerities for a thousand years, in reward for which Brahma, the Creator, gave him immortality and made
him god of wealth, guardian of all the treasures of the earth, the nidhi which he was to give out to whom they were
destined.When Brahma appointed him God of Riches, he gave him Lanka (Ceylon) as his capital, and presented him,
according to the Ramayana, with the vehicle pushpaka, which was of immense size and moved at the owners will at
marvellous speed. When Ravana captured Lanka, Kubera moved to his city of Alaka, and established his Yaksha
Kingdom there.
Lakshmi is the Hindu goddess of wealth, prosperity, light, wisdom, fortune, fertility, generosity and courage; and the

related sorrows. Representations of Lakshmi (or Shri) are found also in Jain monuments.Lakshmi in Sanskrit is
derived from its elemental formlakS, meaning "to perceive or observe".This is synonymous with lakya, meaning

Homams are Pujas performed for a particular deity by invoking Agni, the god of fire. The Sun is considered as the
main source of energy, and fire is considered as a representation of the Sun's energy. According to the ancient texts
on Homams, any offer to Fire as a god, is actually an offer to Sun. Any such offer is done either to enrich energy or to
destroy the undesirable elements in the environment, and thus, in both ways, environment is protected. Like Pujas,
Homams are also believed to be one of the greatest ritual in Hindu religion, whereby doing this, one can get rid of any
obstacles and also attain the self-satisfaction. The goal of all Homams is the prosperity of the people by energizing
and protecting the environment. It is said that when Lord Brahma (the creator among the Trinity) created man, he
also created Homam for man's livelihood and his attainment of desires. The main aim of Homam is derived from the
Vedas or the ancient texts of Hindus. These Vedas explains how a human should be, how he should be helpful to
others and what are the good actions that he should perform. Vedas and Homam are eternal truths which have
neither beginning nor end, and are divine, not the creation of humans.
To perform any Puja or Homam, first of all, a priest is appointed. While performing any Puja, first of all, the priest or
Pandit ji perform the Puja of the Lord Ganesh as Lord Ganesh holds a unique position in the Indian culture and any
ceremony, ritual, Puja or new undertaking begins with invoking the power of Ganesh, otherwise it is regarded as
futile. A Kalash (brass or copper pot filled with sacred water) is placed with a coconut and different fruits, grains and
betel leaves in front of it. After the Ganesh Puja is complete, then the Puja of the respective god or goddess and
Yantra is performed on whose behalf the Homam is performed. This is done with the recitation of a Mantra for that
particular deity with the offerings of water, Chandan (sandalwood) paste, Sindoor (vermilion), rice, milk mixed with
floral-scented oil, flowers, fruits and sweets. After the Puja is completed by the priest, preparations are then made for
the Yagna or Homams (sacred fire ritual) to be performed. This is the last part of the Puja and goes on for over an
Some of the things that are placed in the Agni (fire) during Homam are said to transmit some kind
of medicinal smoke and this smoke mixes in the air thereby curing lots of human diseases. Sandalwood, small pieces
of Banyan tree, fragrant herbs and pure ghee are used as an offering to the Agni (sacred fire), with the recitation of
Mantras. The smoke, which comes out of the Homams, purify the air and this smoke does not cause any air pollution
and also have some medicinal values. In the end, the Yantras are energized with the vibrations of the Mantras. The
energized Yantras are thus empowered and enable the purpose for which they are being used

Vastu Homam also Vastu Veda, (
"science of construction",
"architecture") is a traditional Hindu
system of design based on
directional alignments. It is primarily
applied in Hindu architecture,
especially for Hindu temples,
although it covers other
applications, including poetry,
dance, sculpture, etc. The
foundation of Vastu is traditionally
ascribed to the mythical sage
Mamuni Mayan.
The Vastu Purusha Mandala is an indispensable part of vastu shastra and constitutes the mathematical and
diagrammatic basis for generating design. It is the metaphysical plan of a building that incorporates the course of the
heavenly bodies and supernatural forces. Purusha refers to energy, power, soul or cosmic man. Mandala is the
generic name for any plan or chart which symbolically represents the cosmos.

In Hindu cosmology the surface of the earth is represented as a square, the most fundamental of all Hindu forms. The
earth is represented as four-cornered in reference to the horizon's relationship with sunrise and sunset, the North and
South direction. It is called Chaturbhuji (four cornered) and represented in the form of the Prithvi Mandala. The
astrological charts or horoscopes also represent in a square plan the positions of the sun, moon, planets and zodiac
constellations with reference to a specific person's place and time of birth.
The legend of the Vastu Purusha is related thus. Once a formless being blocked the heaven from the earth and
Brahma with many other gods trapped him to the ground. This incident is depicted graphically in the Vastu Purusha
Mandala with portions allocated hierarchically to each deity based on their contributions and positions. Brahma
occupied the central portion - the Brahmasthana- and other gods were distributed around in a concentric pattern.

Lakshmi Narasimha Homam, the fourth incarnation of God Vishnu, is half-human half-lion and provides a very
fascinating study of the Lord's incarnation in order to alleviate the sufferings of his devotees. Sage Kashyap had four
wives, Diti, Aditi, Vinita and Kudroo. Diti gave birth to demons and from Aditi were born gods, while from Vinita was
born Garud, the carrier of Vishnu and the last one Kudroo created the hydras. Dithi gave birth
to Hiranyaksha and Hiranyakashipu. Vishnu killed Hiranyaksha as he oppressed the devas. At the death of
Hiranyaksha, Hiranyakashipu was overpowered with grief. His mother Dithi was heart-broken. Hiranyakashipu also
was filled with sorrow and it burnt his own heart like fire. He hated Vishnu and Vishnu's very name was like poison to
him. His blood was boiling with the hatred of Vishnu.
Hiranyakashipu, King of the Rakshasas, retired to the mountain Mandara and began tapas - the severe order of
penance. Brahma was pleased with his devotion. He appeared to Hiranyakashipu and said, 'Hiranyakashipu, arise. I
am pleased with your devotion. I have never seen such a severe meditation before. Ask for whatever you desire.'
Hiranyakashipu replied, "Great Lord, if you will grant my prayer, this is what I seek: Let not death come to me from
any creature created by you; let me not meet with death either in the house or outside it; let not my death occur either
during the day or at night; no weapon should cause my death; I should not die either on land or in the sky."

After this blessing the demon crossed all bounds in oppression and dethroned Indra, the king of heavens. The very
gods were filled with fear. Indra, along with the other gods, appeared before Brahma and prayed for deliverance.
Brahma was very much worried and replied that the demon had become powerful due to the blessings bestowed by
him and he could not destroy him. He also advised Indra to go to Vishnu, which they did. The gods went to Vishnu
and retold their story of sufferings and said that due to boons given by Brahma the demon had been indulging in all
sorts of oppression. Vishnu promised to destroy him in due course of time.
At last the king thundered at the boy, "You, curse of the family! Have you not yet given up your evil thoughts? The
three worlds tremble at my glance. But you, my son, how do you dare to disobey me? You are very young; some one
must have misled you and encouraged you. Otherwise you would not have had such evil ideas and such courage.
Tell me who has shown you such an evil path." The earth shook as the king roared at the boy. But Prahalad calmly
replied, "Dear father, it was Hari who gave me this courage. He is stronger than anyone else. You and I, the universe,
even Brahma are nothing before his strength. He is the real Lord of the Universe."

All the gods were under the thumb of the mighty Hiranyakashipu; and here was a mere boy of five giving him advice.
The king of the Rakshasas was mad with anger. He shouted in rage: "Unlucky fool, your death is near. I am the Lord
of all the worlds, the only master. Is there another? Where is he? Show him to me." "He is everywhere," young
Prahlad's answer came without a moment's delay. The king could no longer control himself through anger. He hit a
pillar with his mace. "Wicked fellow, is he everywhere? You mad boy, why should he not appear to me in this pillar? I
am going to kill you this very moment. You have been praising Hari as the Lord of the Universe. Let him come to your
help if he can." So saying he drew out his sword and pounced upon the little boy. There was a terrible deafening
noise as if the universe itself split into two. Even the very brave Hiranyakashipu stared from his place at the terrible
noise. The courtiers shook with fear and stood like statues of stone. As the stunned men watched, the pillar split into
