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.

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.

  6. Respected Sir,
    Myself GiriRaman,
    DOB: 7th June 1984
    Place of Birth: Palakkad, Kerala
    Time of birth: 20:50 / 8:50PM Night
    Lagna : Dhanu
    Raashi : Kanya

    I am facing lot of problems in two area of my life : Marriage & Career. On seeing astrologers they mentioned that my 7th house & 10th house lord is Mercury. Mercury is very weak and afflicted in my horoscope hence these two areas will not be fulfilling in my life. Most of astrologers say my 6th house lot issues are there due to conjunction . Few other astrologers said me I have pitru dosha in my horoscope due to that issues are coming, but Guruji they are also saying that Rahu-Sun conjunction has occured for me in 6th house so full pitru dosha is absent (Only in 5th/9th house Sun-Rahu conjunction causes Pitru dosha is what most say). So kindly provide me with suggestions/ remedy for the above issue. Right now parents are searching for alliance but nothing is materializing. Please tell me if I have pitru dosha/ Naga dosha in my horoscope (puja or any other remedy that will help me).

    GiriRaman V

    • Dear GiriRaman
      Yes your horoscope is having Pitru Dosha as it is satisfying 1 rules laid down for Pitra Dosha.
      Pitru Dosh is formed when Rahu or Ketu are placed with any of the planet in the 6th, 8th and the 12th house. But do not worry as there are remedies for Pitru Dosha which you can perform and get relieved from this dosha.
      Rahu placement in 6th house sets you back in getting marred.
      Conjunction of Saturn and Mars in 11th house (house of gains or Labha and represents sources of income) gives inauspicious and hence struggling in financial aspects.
      Following are the remedies to be performed for Pitru Dosha
      Pitru dosha nivaran puja should be performed to pacify that malefic planet in Pitra paksha.
      Perform Trapandi Shraad to get rid of Pitra dosha.
      Giving water to the Banyan tree is also a remedial measure for pitra dosha.
      Offer / donate food to Brahmins / people in old age homes on every “Amavasya”.
      Worship Lord Shiva regularly to have peace to you and your ancestors. Also you may perform water / milk abhishekam to lord Shiva on every Mondays. Rudhra Abhishekam at Kalahasthi or any ancient shrine is also mandatory. This can be done once in every six months or every year with Rahu Kethu pooja also.
      You can perform shraddha on Shukla Paksha Navami thithi with Jyeshtha Nakshathra. – this is calculated as per you date of birth which is very auspicious for you.
      Or you can perform on Pitru Paksha Mahalaya Shraddha on 14th September 2017 (Thursday) in general auspicious day also.
      Om Namah Shivaya

      • Thank you very much Sir. I shall do the above remedies.

        Sir, please also tell me what I should regarding Budh/Mercury planet in my horoscope as it is controlling both my partnership/marriage house & Career house. Both these aspects are never getting stabilized in my life so kindly suggest me remedies for this. Astrologer mentioning same that 7th/10th lord is weak .Please tell me when I will get married.

        Also Sir, as you said already in 11th house Saturn-Mars conjunction is preventing financial success, what is the remedy for that also, please tell me. Some astrologers are saying to me Saturn in 11th house is exalted and in middle age I will make money, please let me know your opinion. How to better financial prospects please tell me.

        Thank you very much Sir,
        With Regards,
        GiriRaman V

        Moon Raashi: Kanya

        • Dear GiriRaman
          For Mercury related problems –
          Worship of Lord Vishnu daily is must before sun rise. Recite Vishnu Sahasranama sthothram.
          Recite the Budha stotra:
          Priyangu Kalika Shyaamam Roopena Pratimam Budham
          Soumyam Soumya gunopetam tam Budham Pranamamyaham.
          Observe fast on every Wednesday. Wear 10 faced Rudhraksha.
          For Saturn – Mars conjuction worship lord Hanuman and Subrahmanya.
          Om Namah Shivaya

          • Thank you very much Respected Sir. I shall follow on the same instructed by you.
            Sir also I am seeing in your website you never suggested gemstone as remedy, for benefit of all people could you please tell us if gemstones are really useful in solving problems. For example in my case astrologers have said Budh/Mercury being lord of 7th/10th house is a benefic & since Mercury is weak I should wear emerald in little finger, so that it will help in my career and marriage alliances. So please let me know sir, based on your wisdom do gemstones really alter fate.

            GiriRaman V

            • Dear GiriRaman V
              Yes wearing gem stone gives protection from malefic effect of the respective planet. But you need to consult a perfect / expertise in gemeologist and it costs much or too much. Most our visitor say about financial problems and hence i do not suggest.
              I stronlgy believe in GOD and not on these stones. And hence i wont suggest. Just worship the Gods and do good and its more than enough.
              Om Namah Shivaya

  7. 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.

  13. 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
