Grahapīḍā (ग्रहपीडा).—(Adverse planetary effects on children) Astrologers hold the view that planets affect or exercise some influence on the lives of people. According to that given hereunder is a brief description of planets, which affect a child from its very birth as also of remedial measures to keep the child free from such adverse planetary effects.

On the very day of the birth of the child a female planet called Pāpinī affects it as a result of which it will refuse all food and be lying turning its head this way and that. Pāpinī will tap the health not only of the child but of the mother also. Bali (sacrificial offering with flesh, fish and liquor as also waving with flowers and fragrant materials and lighted lamp, and smearing the child’s body with sandal paste, mancetti powder, tātiri flower, bark of pachotti, are remedies against the attack of Pāpinī. Burning of buffalo dung also is useful. (See full article at Story of Grahapīḍā from the Puranic encyclopaedia by Vettam Mani)
