I had the opportunity to chat with Margalo Ashley-Farrand/Satyabhama, about the benefits of chanting mantras and the Planetary-Navagraha Puja.
I do the planetary mantras and they work! Attending a Puja is a powerful experience on all levels. Puja's work within each person in a special way. Everyone's experience is unique, yet there is a common thread of clearing and cleansing the whole being from the inside out. If you want to move or shift a lot of energy/clear karma, attending a Puja can help facilitate this.
Of the four types of karma described in Eastern texts, Prarabdha Karma, the position of the planets at the time of your birth, is the one kind of karma that cannot be changed. Although this astrological DNA remains constant throughout life, the way we receive planetary vibrations can indeed be changed. This ceremony can ease the way we are forced to deal with difficult planetary alignments & natal configurations. This puja is performed to soften and reduce planetary karma of all kinds.
Satyabhama does various Pujas on a regular basis. If you cannot be at one of these pujas you can participate in absentia we will pray for you specifically during the puja.
Margalo Ashley-Farrand/Satyabhama Margalo Ashley-Farrand, given the name Satyabhama by Sadguru Sant Keshavadas, began having Christian mystical experiences at age 14. In 1981, she completed the arduous Narvarna Sadhana and Shiva Sadhana as taught by Sant Keshavadas. Thereafter she learned to perform the ancient pujas and yajnas.
