Rahu - Puja and Havan

“Ardha Kaayam mahaa veeryam chandraditya vimardhanam simhika garbha sambhootam tam rahum pranamaamyaham”

The idol of the Rahu should be made using lead. Rahu be perceived with a fierce face and four arms holding sword, shield, shoola and fourth hand being in blessing posture duly mounted on a lion.

Rahu should be worshipped with the flowers and clothes of the colors of the idol and with fragrance, sticks, deepa, giving oblations, Dhupa, Guggul, etc. The metal of the idol of the planet and the food dear to him as signified by the planet are donated in charity with full devoutness for the alleviation of the affliction.

Maharishi Parashara said that the Mantra of Rahu should be recited for eighteen thousand times. 

The type of wood to be used for Havan of Rahu is Dooba. The Havana Samagri duly mixed with honey, ghee, curd or milk is offered as oblations into the sacred fire and amidst chanting of the Mantras for 108 or 28 times, the Havana should be performed.

After that Brahmins should be fed. Bhojan Dakshina should be given to Pundits as well as the priests of Maa Kaali temple for Rahu Shanti. After the worship Dakshina should be given as per shraddha of yajmana (person performing the Havan) and satisfaction of Brahmins.

Normally the mantras given below are chanted for reducing the affliction of Rahu. Beej Mantra is preferred because of being a potent mantra.
