The South node or Ketu is regarded
as a point of difficult Karma from a past life in which the individual
furthered his own selfish interest at the expense of others. Ketu, on
the positive side, can develop strong concentration and mastery of
obscure or arcane subjects. Ketu gives sudden and unexpected results for
good or bad. On the spiritual front Ketu gives perception, liberation,
wisdom and psychic sensitivity in a more genuine way.
The Ketu Puja is performed to appease the planet Ketu. The Ketu Puja is
very useful and beneficial puja, since its worship strengthens benefic
Ketu, increases its positive influence, pacifies malefic effects of the
planet and neutralizes its negative effect. The Ketu Puja is recommended
for those having malefic Ketu or wrong placed Ketu as per horoscope.
