Therefore there are overall 108 Nakshatra Pad. Hence, there are Nine Nakshatra Pads or Charan in Each Zodiac Sign.

Nakshatra have very profound effect on almost each and every phase of our Lives including Health, Wealth, Constitution of our Body, Our Nature as well as our Overall Well Being as per Hindu Vedic Astrology. Even the Dasha durations are also calculated on the basis of the Nakshatra, in which it takes into consideration that where the Moon was placed at the time of our Birth and we all are very well familiar about the impact of Dasha and Antar Dasha on our Lives.

Out of 27 Nakshatras, 6 Nakshatras are considered as Inauspicious and they are recognized as GAND MOOL NAKSHATRA. These Six Nakshatra are listed below :

  • Ashwini Nakshatra
  • Ashlesha Nakshatra
  • Magha Nakshatra
  • Jyeshtha Nakshtra
  • Mool Nakshatra
  • Revati Nakshatra

In a scenario where a person is born in any of the above mentioned Six Nakshatras, a Special Puja known as “Gand Mool Nakshatra Shanti Puja” should be carried out as soon as possible for their pacification. Normally, this Puja is done on the 27th day after Birth, when the same Nakshatra is still there. However, if this has not been done, then it is highly advisable to get the corresponding puja done at the earliest, otherwise various negative results and influences are faced by that person in his life as per Ancient Hindu Vedic Texts. 


Hence there are 2 kinds of Nakshatra Pujas as follows :

1. Gand Mool Nakshatra Shanti Puja : This Puja should be performed in circumstances when a person is born in a Gand Mool Nakshatra as described above. For getting this Puja Performed Please CLICK HERE

2. Nakshatra Puja : This is the Puja for the rest of the Nakshatras i.e. after deducting those six. As for example, if a Person is born in the Rohini Nakshatra, then his life is administered by this Nakshatra and hence a Puja for this Nakshatra should be done for overall Health, Wealth and Happiness.
