One of the most trusted remedies of Vedic Jyotish is “Vedic Pooja or Yagya” for planets. They are supremely powerful in nature and have the potentials to turn impossible into possible. Vedic poojas or yagyas are done in order to reduce the effects of malefic planets or to gain the benefits from the already powerful planet in a horoscope. These poojas are different for different planets, But the principle and rules to conduct pooja does not vary with different planets in Navagraha. Let’s discuss the Vedic Pooja for Venus better referred to as Budha Shanti Yagya or Budha Graha Pooja.
Budha Pooja is performed in order to rectify the malefic Budha Graha or Mercury Planet in a horoscope to remove negativity or to avail benefits from already benefic Mercury in the horoscope for positivity. Budha pooja starts and ends on Wednesday generally but it may end on some other day in accordance with the time required by the pundits to complete the enchantment of Budha Ved Mantra which takes around 6 hours usually if 8-10 Vedic Pandits do it collectively. Different steps in Budha pooja is called Budha Pooja Vidhi that will be discussed in the article.
The most significant step in whole pooja is the chanting of the whole Jaap that may go as high as 17000 in the count of Vedic Mantras. All the other procedure in Budha Pooja Vidhi is based around these chants. Then a specific day is chosen for the commencement and ending of Budha Pooja which is Wednesday in case of this pooja or yagya. The reason behind choosing this pooja is because pundits generally take 5 to 7 hours to complete the pooja. To begin any pooja “a Sankalpam” or “resolution” is taken by head pundit on behalf of other assistant pundits. In this Sankalpam it is mentioned that they are performing Budha or Mercury Yagya on behalf of the native (his name), his father’s name, name of assistant pundits, time duration for the completion of yagya is proposed and it is mentioned that they shall perform chanting of 17,000 Budha Vedic mantra in order to pacify the malefic Mercury or avail benefits from the already benefic Mercury and for the native to be blessed on the successful completion of pooja. Additional requests and wishes made by the natives are also mentioned in this step.
After the Sankalpam, all the Pandits keep on chanting Budha Veda Mantra for 5-7 hours in order to complete the pooja in proposed time. When the pooja is completed, all the Veda Mantra’s being enchanted, a completion ceremony is organized in which deities and members of Shiva family are worshipped with many offerings like flowers, fruits, sweets, halwa, dhoop, Deepak, milk, curd, honey, desi ghee, sugar, and other things. In this completion ceremony, the head pundit keeps on repeating that he has completed the pooja in given time and the native has also followed all the procedures so he should be blessed with the benefic Mercury or removal of malefic Mercury by the blessings of the god and goddess. It is to be noted here that a significant planet in Navgraha is also offered and donated with offering in the completion ceremony. These offerings include copper, sugar, wheat, rice, milk, oil, utensils, pulses, lentils, moles and other specific things. After this puja, the blessings are taken from the gods and goddesses to start the final ceremony of next step is performing Havana.
This is an important and powerful procedure and this pooja should be performed by trained pundits only. In this Havana a direct connection between the corresponding planet and natives is established by the mantras from pundits. It is a bit technical step and involves accuracy and precision in practice. A holy fire is lit which is called Yagna (Yagya). In this process after the chant of each mantra, an offering is donated to the fire of Havan Kund. With the end of each mantra, a sound of “Swaha” is produced and then offering is devoted to the fire. This process goes in sync for long and is repeated again and again. These things offered to the fire form pooja samagri, and may differ for different poojas. In the end, a dry coconut filled with specific fillings recommended by pundits are offered to the holy-yagna and mantras are chanted by pundits on native’s behalf. After which the native is asked to go in circles around the havan- kund. These circle may be of 1,3 or 7 in number according to the nature of pooja and this step is called “Parikrama”. This marks the end of Budha pooja.
All the above-mentioned steps are to be performed in a specific manner recommended by the Pundits in accordant with the Vedic Jyotish. You may not get the desired result if you log behind in some procedure and do not perform it in the prescribed manner. Other then these processes, there are certain guidelines and precautions for the native which one should follow during the running time of Pooja. One is prohibited to consumption of alcohol and should refrain from smoking. The native is advised to have good conduct and should not take part in any act of violence. One should not eat non-vegetarian food till the end of pooja. One is refrained to get involved in physical or sexual contacts with his partner whether married or unmarried. One should rise early morning, take bath and pray to. He or she should try to connect with Surya Pooja and pray to be blessed by the gods.
The point to note here is that Budha Pooja can be conducted with or without the presence of Native. This is that the pooja can be conducted by pundits on native’s behalf if he is unable to be present due to certain circumstances. A photograph is kept as a symbol of the native and head pundit mentions the name of the pundit who shall perform mantras on native’s behalf and the native should be blessed. The pundit designated first performs the native’s mantras and then his. This way with the help of assistant pundits, Venus Pooja or Yagya can be conducted with or without the presence of the native.
After completing the chant of 17,000 Budha Ved Mantras and followed the procedures as mentioned above, a person may reduce malefic Mercury in horoscope or get benefits from already benefic Mercury in a horoscope.
