Significance of Navdhanya and Akshat Rice in Puja Rituals

The Hindu Puja rituals and ceremonies are elaborated and require many ingredients which are used as a part of the Puja rituals and Homam rituals, in auspicious ceremonies, etc. Navdhanya is used in almost all Puja rituals as an offering during Homam. The term Navadhanya means nine grains. The Navdhanya symbolizes prosperity, abundance and is offered to worship Gods and Goddesses. Across different regions of India Navadhanya for Puja is used, but with slight variation in the grains. Each type of grain of the Navdhanya is also used to appease the Navagraha, which are the nine Planets as per Vedic Astrology. The basic reasons of using Navadhanya for Navagraha are the same, be it wherever in India.

The Navdhyanya are whole grains of fresh Paddy Rice, Wheat, Jow or Barley Grains, Black Sesame Seeds, Green Gram, Bengal Gram, Horse Gram, White Beans, Chickpeas. Each grain or pulse has its own significance. They are mostly mixed together to use for Homam. These grains are said to draw Cosmic energy and considered very auspicious.

Akshat Rice is whole raw Rice grains which is a common Puja ingredient and used in worship or Puja of Deities or Yantras and also in auspicious or religious occasions. For Puja purposes it is an important ingredient and is coloured with Kumkum and other colour powders like Turmeric before using. It is believed to attract the energies of Lord Shiva, Goddess Durga, Lord Ganesha, Lord Krishna and Lord Ram.

Only whole grains of Rice are used for Navadhanya for Pooja as it holds the maximum superior energy of Divine. Akshat is said to retain the purity and sanctity of the Mantra, Yantra and Deity energies present in the Puja occasion. It is one of the best offerings that a devotee can make. Akshat is a harbinger of prosperity, fertility and abundance and blesses the devotee with the same.

Uses and Benefits of Navdhanya

As mentioned in ancient Hindu texts, Navdhanya is used in religious rituals, for Astrological reasons, as offering in Homam. As Navdhanya signifies Goddess Laxmi, offering Navdhanya blesses with prosperity, wealth, abundance. Every item used in Vedic Puja rituals has its own importance. The Navagraha or nine Planets play an important role in the life of an individual and weak placement of the Planets in birth chart or Kundli may cause ill effects on the native. The Navdhanya is offered to the Planets to appease them, in Pujas and occasions like Grihapravesh. Each grain is meant for one Planet.

Navdhanya is food and is considered Brahman, offering them during Puja, Homam, to Planets benefits by brining prosperity, good health, blesses with longevity, peace, harmony in relationships, success and happiness. Navdhanya brings the blessings of Gods, Goddesses and Planets.
