The Nakshatra shanti puja is aimed at neutralizing the bad effects of the nakshatras prevailing at the time of birth of an individual. The motto of the puja is to nullify the malefic effects of the planets in their main periods(mahadasa) or sub periods(antardasa) and to attain benefic results from the same planets.
One can become averse to his good luck when malefic constellation entrap a person to an extent that he is unable to recover from the effects of the same. Many people have found the fact that despite of having no problem in their kundali, they are facing problems which suddenly emerge out of nothing or which are there right from the birth.
Nakshatra Shanti puja aims at correcting and pacifying the presiding deities of the nakshatras through various processes mentioned in the scriptures.
