  1. Consult an astrologer before you perform any remedy. Based on your chart and the malefic intensity of the planet, an astrologer will suggest what kind of remedy needs to be performed and the period in which they need to be executed.
  2. Remedies have to be performed/recited by the person themselves. Exceptions may arise if the individual is a child, aged, or severely sick, in which a person close to them will need to perform the ascribed remedy.
  3. Homas and shanti pujas have to be done under the guidance of Vedic Pandit.
  4. Partaking in Prasada of shanti pooja is a must.
  5. In the case of mantra chanting one should get the texts in their mother tongue for accuracy, if in doubt it is better to seek the help of a learned to avoid any mistakes.
  6. One should do these remedies with full faith and dedication.
  7. As these planets give results according to our karma, hence, it is best to follow dharmic life, and help those in need. As it is said, “Manava sevaye Madhava seva”  that is helping those in need is equal to praying to God. 
  8. Lastly, it is important to note that remedies do not change our fate but have the ability to reduce the impacts of negative situations and will help improve the inner strength of an individual. Remedies also help one to improve the positive aura.
