The Navagraha Homam is performed to remove all obstacles in life and attain 'Ayur, Arogya and Saukhyam' (longevity, health and happiness).
The Homam is performed after conducting a Navagraha Pooja and nine varieties of flowers, nine cereals (Nava Dhanya),nine vastrams (fabric of different colours),and nine types of Naivedyams are used for the pooja. Each Graha is worshipped with a specific flower. Nine types of Chamatas (twigs)are used.
