Pasupata Homam or MahaPasupata Homam has many variations. The main version which is often performed is to seek divine intervention in marriage proposals being concluded without delay. There are families where a boy or a girl is of marriageable age and for some unknown reason, their marriage alliance would not get decided. Such families are advised by their astrologer to get a Pasupata Homam conducted. In this form, it is also called BhriguPasupata Homam.
Lord Shiva is the deity to whom the offerings in the fire are made. The pandits will chant mantras in praise of Lord Shiva to please Him and to seek His blessings.

The usual way is for your astrologer to make the recommendation to you to perform the homam if there are circumstances in your life and horoscope that indicate the requirement.
