According to “Sanathana Dharma”, there are some nakshatras described as
Dosha Nakshatras for newly born babies. There are some nakshatras that will have
a negative impact on newly born babies and also some nakshatras will have
a positive impact on newly born babies. Sometimes when the baby is born under
Durmuhurtham and varjyam also have a negative impact on the baby. Some
nakshatras will give a negative impact on the mother, father and other relatives of
the baby. However, by performing Nakshatra Shanti Homam, the negative impact
causing dosha nakshatras will turn into a positive impact causing nakshatras.
Ancient people used to perform this Homam surely irrespective of the time of
birth, the birth star of the baby.
