The words NAVA mean Nine, GRAHA mean Planets, and VANA mean Garden. Life on earth is believed to be affected by the cosmic energies of the Navagraha or nine planets.
According to Hindu tradition, Surya, Chandra, Mangala, Budha, Guru, Shukra, Shani, Raahu & Ketu are the nine grahas. There are nine plants in the Navagraha Vana - trees, shrubs. We need to plant the grass in the proper direction in each plant. In the universe, the grahas are responsible for maintaining overall equilibrium. These grahas have their energy qualities and are said to affect each of us throughout our lives.
Every plant is specially chosen to influence your energy field. The Vedas explain that there are Pavitra Vrikshalu plants at Pragati such as the Nakshatra Vrikshalu, the Rashi Vrikshalu, Navagraha Vrikshalu, Panchbhoota Vrikshalu, and Parijata Vrikshalu, etc. to accomplish the desired effects.
These trees and medicinal plants that have been preserved in our sacred vanams at Pragati, along with other rare Mother plants are part of our ancient Prana Pradaatalu and Arogya Pradaatalu. Through aromatherapy, these herbs remove toxins and refresh the body. Consequently, Pragati has become a mosquito-free, bacteria-free, virus-free environment. An area of the brain called the limbic system is believed to transmit emotions and retrieve memories.
