April 8, 2019 - May 05, 2019
Performing Shanti Homams are beneficial both to the individual and to the community at large.
Navagraha Shanti Homam will be performed at various occasions both at temples and homes. Nakshatra Shanti is performed mostly during specific birthdays of the individual. The Nakshatra or star of each person is calculated using his/her time of birth. It is rare to have a combination of the two performed at the same time. 
This year many navagrahas (planets) are changing positions and are in conjunction with other planets. When such conjunctions take place, it is difficult to predict the outcome. Performing Shanti homa will mitigate the negetive effects if any and enhance the positive effects of the Navagrahas (planets) and Nakshatras (stars). 

 Starting today, for the next 27 days one Navagraha and one Nakshatra will be propitiated each day. Offerings of ghee and special dravyas associated with them will be made in the holy fire. These kind of Maha Yagnams are performed time to time to bring about peace and prosperity to one and all.  
Various levels of sponsorship are available for this special yagna. Sponsorship is available for one day, or all 27 days. The yagna can be sponsored for a family of 4 too.

Huge quantity of ghee will be required for the yagnam. Donations of ghee are welcome and can be dropped off at the Sai Temple Homa Kunda.
