About Budha Graha
Mercury, often called Budha, is regarded as the messenger of gods in Vedic astrology. Mercury is said to provide the power to differentiate between good and evil. It represents communication and intelligence. It is known to be the indicator of good wealth, trade, education, books, scholars, humour, etc. Individuals born with a strong Mercury are blessed with sharp thinking skills but they may also have issues like indecisiveness and anxiety. Similarly, people born with malefic mercury may face difficulties like lack of understanding, memory issues, communication blunders, etc. Performing the Budha Graha Shanti puja is believed to provide a possible solution to all such problems.
Budha Graha Shanti Jaap
Budha Graha Shanti Jaap is considered one of the most powerful mantras in Hinduism. The Jaap is performed by praying to Lord Budh with utmost devotion and reciting his mantras. According to Shastras, the Budh Graha Shanti Jaap is done to dispose of the problems happening because of the Budh Graha Dosha.
