About the CD

A bodly placed ketu generates family fights loss of wealth injury to family members and other miseries. However his regular worship (Thursday/Saturday) grants good health, wealth and all around properity and success.

Jyothish Shastra or Hindu Astrology is based on an elaborate calculation of the position of nine planets or navgrahas. Depending upon where these planets are located at the time of a person birth Hindu believe that the possibilities and potentialities of a man life and energies are determined well in advance. Classical Vedic astrology uses the seven visible planets Surya (Sun), Chandra (Moon) Mangal (Mars) Budha (Mercury) Guru (Jupiter), Shukra (Venus) and Shani (Saturn). The other two Rahu and Ketu are also fabled as planets, the former as a planet with a head and no body and the latter as a planet with a body and no head.

Each of these nine planets exerts and influence in our lives which is called ‘Dasha’ and it can be known from one horoscope. In casting a horoscope the heavens are commonly represented by a circle divided into 12 intersections, house. Each of these house is assigned several departments of human life such as wealth or marriage. The planet that falls within a particular house is said to influence matters pertaining to that house. It is not man alone that is subject to changes of fortune. If one known the planetary position at the time of commencing a job or enterprise with its help one should be able to find out how it would take shape how one would fare in it.

Why Do a Navagraha Puja?
Navagraha puja is an extremely useful & beneficial puja, since its worship soothes and heals all the difficult energies of that planet in our life and also encourages the positive energies from that same planet to flow toward us. This puja is recommended for all particularly those whose planets are detrimental or malefic as per horoscope (Dasha). Thus the favour of all the Grahas must be conciliated before every auspicious event to accomplish it successfully. Chanting the Navagraha Mantras everyday with devotion enables one to overcome one adversities and achieve happiness in life. The Navagrahas are the custodians of our overall well being and influence our destiny.

The highlight of the albums in the Navagraha Puja series is the shodashopchar Puja (‘Shodas’-sixteen, ‘upchar-rituals) i.e. 16 ritual puja for each graha. These being – Avahanam, Asanam, Padhyam, Arghyam, Achamanam, Panchamrut snanam, snanam, Yagnopavitam, Vastram, Gandham, Pushpani, Dhupam, Deepam, Vaivedyam, Niranjanam, Namaskaram. One could also do panchopchar (5 ritual) Dashopchar (10 ritual) or an Ashtatrinshad upchar (38 ritual) to worship the Grahas. The albums also include some rituals from the Ashtatrinshad upchar vidhi such as abhishekam ang-pujan, nam-pujan, namavali (chanting the 108 names of the Graha) etc. and also included certain important mantras specific to each graha.

Thus the albums in this series involve a step-by-step puja of each Graha to help on worship the Graha at one's Own convenience and by one's own self while it would be ideal for one follow this puja, purely listening to these albums with utmost de lion is also a puja in itself, a `manas-puja each Graha.

After grasping the rudiments of Hindustani Classical music under Pt. Narayaprao Datar, she began to imbibe all the traditional aspects of stylized Jaipur-Gayaki under the strict tutelage of her mother, mentor and Guru, the renowned vocalist Smt: Manik Bhide, herself a student of many years of the living legend Ganasaraswati Smt. Kishori Amonkar. Currently, Ashwini is also receiving valuable guidance from another senior stalwart of the renowned Gharana; Pt. Ratnakar Pai.
