Guru Graha Shanti Homam – Guru Fire Ritual
Guru or Jupiter represents good fortune, wisdom, education and knowledge. Well placed Guru in a horoscope makes a person successful, healthy, with keen intelligence, disciplined mind and senses. Guru, if pleased, endows one with wisdom, happy marriage, high positions and posts, sons, riches, honors and a fulfilling life.
Badly placed Guru could cause weak nerves, skin problems, arthritis, impurity of blood, worrying, uneasiness and troubles in life.
Guru Graha or Planet Jupiter should be propitiated to gain positive results (fame, acquisition of land, success, progeny) and blessings from the planet through the performance of remedial measures. Blessings of Guru help to avert all doshas due to grahas(planets) in a horoscope.
