Chanting of mantra was a concept
of the Vedic saints that includes mantras as one of the main forms of
worship, whose end is seen as escape. Basically, Mantra Japam means
repeating the mantra. Reciting Mantra has become an established feature
of the Hindu practices. Mantra Japam involves repetition of mantra again
and again. Chandra Dev (Moon), as a God, is fair and youthful in
appearance. He is considered wise, peaceful and auspicious. He wears
white and carries a mace in one hand and is seated on a lotus which is
carried by a shining white chariot pulled by white horses.
Chandra Puja is to appease the planet Moon. Chandra Puja is very useful
& beneficial Puja, since its worship strengthens benefic Moon &
increases its positive influence and pacifies malefic effects of the
planet & neutralizes its negative effect. Chandra Puja is recommended
for those having malefic Moon or wrongly placed Moon as per horoscope.
