What is Kala Sarpa Dosha?
Kaala Sarpa Dosh is all about faulty planetary position, with a snake like formation, found in the person’s natal birth chart. In a dosha like this, the planetary positions are such that Rahu (head of the snake) and ketu (tail of the snake) happen to fall on the beginning and end of the formation, respectively. There are many other ways by which Kaaal Sarpa Yoga can be formed, the moon in the eight house of the natal chart being one of the ways. However, there are no rules of thumb to Kaaal Sarpa Dosha and it requires a good astrologer to study the planetary position accurately. The person suffering from Kala Sarpa Yoga finds it difficult life to lead a happy life. He/she suffering from Kala Sarpa Dosha has problems in married life, loss of money and constant health problems. The Dosha can be cured and control by offering prayers to Lord Shiva at some chosen destinations. Srikalahasti is one of them.

Rahu Kethu Pooja / Sarpa dosha / Graha doshas / Sarva doshas Puja

Rahu Ketu Sarpdosha Puja is performed in order to minify ill effects of yoga. Thousands of devotees flock to Srikalahasti to get the desired results through this pooja. Many of these pujas are performed with ascertained results for those who suffer with marital discord, not begetting children, problems in jobs and many long-standing problems. The puja is performed to neutralize the malefic effects of the planets and cut out its negative effect on the life of the individual.

Flowers and vermillion are sprinkled or proffered to the rahu ketu representing metals while the mantra is cantillated to complete the whole puja routine. Mantra recitations are also done in favour of one’s gotra, caste and janma nakshatra. ** No need to discard your cloths or having a bath after the pooja. You can go with the same cloths.

  • For Dakshina moorthy Thursday is the best day

It is suggested and advised to plan your journey exclusively if going for pooja as it takes fair amount of time for the completion of the same.

  1. DOB. 13/07/1993. TIME 9AM,




    • Dear Sandeep
      Rahu is placed in 4th house is inauspicious.
      Possible effects – Loss of property, disappoint-ment, loss of job and business, unhappiness, sarpdosha unhappy and unsettled life.
      Remedy – Kaala Sarpa dosha parihara pooja. First archana / pooja to Lord Ganesha and then to do the parihara pooja.
      Also mars is placed in Lagana. This also may gives impact on your family life. So proper matching of horoscopes is must even it is nullified.
      Remedy – Daily worship of Lord Ganehs and Hanuman is must.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Kavitha
      You don’t have kaala sarpa dosham but Naaga dosham is there. Placement of Rahu in 5th house and Kethu in 11th house may get problems in love life, begetting a child, married life.
      So doing rahu kethu pooja is advisable. Doing this pooja every year on a non fasting thithi rahu kalam time gives benefts. Also first do archana / simple pooja to Lord Gaesha and then go to the parihara sthala.
      Match your horoscope carefully with a boys horoscope for a trouble free conjugal life if not married.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Anitha
      It is due to the planetary positions of our horoscope. It is all to make us learn about the life.
      It is all due to the purva janma phal or parental curse. We or our parents or grand parents might have done harm know or unknown in somehow and hence we need to bear the karma.
      It is all what we need to suffer is written by god in your fate. We cannot escape.
      Try to read Gita and understand the exact meaning so that you can understand what is srishti and god and karma phal.
      Don’t think / confuse too much anitha. You just try to think positively only. That is good for you and what you can do. God knows about when to bestow or bless the bumans. So donot think too much.
      May God Bless you.

  7. Dear Gurudev, pranams, Dob 10th January 1973, 11:15 am. SRIKAKULAM, Andhra pradesh.
    Plz enlighten whether I have any dosha and pariharam, as am not getting auspicious results. Plz do the needful

    • Dear Divakar
      No major dosham. But since Kethu is placed in 12th house you will not be able to fulfil your karma. This creates delay in marriage. Troubles in conjugal life, creates hurdles but will reward after a very hard time.
      You should worship Lord Ganesha and should stay on the moral and true path upon life. It would be beneficial for you to keep a dog in house and to keep saunf & khand under the pillow during the nights.
      About your profession – You will achieve good heights in administration, finance based jobs after a very hard troubles.
      You need to abstain from alcohol and non-veg, you will enjoy a healthy and a sound mind. If you do not you will be put into troubles.
      MUST – Daily worship Lord Hanuman by reciting the naama manthra of Lord Rama for at least 30 mins and visit temple. Do not go out without kesariya tilak on your forehead.
      Do not forget to worship Lord Ganesha also.
      Om Namah Shivaya
