    1. Dear Durga
      The prasad May not give results. So its always good to start taking the prasad again for good result.

  3. Dear Sir, We are going to perform Sarpa Samskara puja next month at Kukke Shree Subrahmanya Temple. Could you please tell when we can intake non veg and can we visit other pilgrimage place after the puja.

    1. Dear A MURTHY
      Stop eating one day before your visit. You can go to any temple after taking a bath and changing your clothes.

    1. Dear Rohit
      Pregnant women are not advised to perform the pooja. Instead, their parents or husband can perform the pooja on their behalf, by keeping cloth of her.

      1. By mistake we had garlic contained chips after sarpa samskara nd ashlesha Bali..what should we do now?any problem occurs please reply

        1. Dear Madhuri
          “No problem, it was a mistake on your part. You didn’t do it intentionally.”

    1. Dear Kamsala Mallikarjuna
      Pregnant women should perform sarpasamshakara pooja.
      Husband can perform sarpasamshakara pooja.

  4. Dear Sir,
    I heard we should not visit any temple and also allowed to perform any vrat for 45 days after sarpa samskara, Is it true?
    After how many days of menustral cycle we are allowed to do this Sarpa samskara Pooja

    1. Dear Swetha
      You can go to any temple after a bath. You can perform Hanuman, Shiva and Lord Subramanya/Muruga vraths.
      After the 6th or 7th day you can go to the temple.

    1. Dear Kavya
      You should not eat Non Veg only on the day you perform the Rahu Kethu pooja and avoiding onion and garlic is as per your choice. It is not mandatory as this is Shiva Temple. Non veg also you can eat from the third day of the Parihara Pooja.
      Om Namah Shivaya

  5. I have few questions, kindly help in getting them answered:
    1. Whether new set of clothes are required during each day pooja? or these can we washed, dried and worn on second day?
    2. After performing pooja, do we need to leave / donate the clothes worn during pooja. If these are to be left behind, is there a place earmarked for the purpose, where clothes can be kept in a hygienic way.
    3. Prasadam includes dry coconut, so can it be had there only as flights may not allow dry coconut to be carried for security reasons.

    1. Dear Ankit
      Please Contact Temple Office Numbers- +918257 281700 / +918257 281423/ +918257 281224 for precise clarification regarding your query.

      Dear Bhuvaneswari
      For your Ascendant, Professional end is controlled by Budha and Saturn. Both are malefic / maraca planets for your ascendant. Also Lord of your Rajya (Career) Sthana is Saturn who is a maraca plane. So delay will be there. So keep on trying hard.
      Presently you are in the Rahu Maha Dasa period till 03.2036. This period will be equally good and bad.
      Worship Lord Ganesh daily or every Wednesdays and observing fast and worship on every Saknakshta Chathurthy is so beneficial.
      Then worship Lord Hanuman by reciting Hanuman chaleesha daily or every Tuesdays and Saturdays and do visit Hanuman temple on every Saturdays. If Navagrahas are available in the Hanuman temple then do Pradhakshinas and offer black sesame seeds lamp before Shani Deva.
      Tuesdays and Thursdays are lucky days for you. Wear Yellow clothes and attend the interview to get success.
      Perform Rudhra Abhishekam in a temple or perform Water Abhishekam to Shiva Linga at your pooja rooma on every Mondays evening during the Pradosha kaal.
      Attending Pradosha Kaal Pooja on regular basis is also beneficial for you.
      Attend Sai Baba Harathi pooja regularly.
      May i know what sort of job are trying.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    1. Dear Naveen
      Should not consume Alcohol or Non Veg for the next 15 days after the pooja is completed at Kukke Subrahmanya temple. Also you will be given some advices about dos and donts after by the priest who perform the parihara pooja for you. If he forgets that then you need to ask him.

      Om Namah Shivaya

  7. We are thinking to conceive can we intercourse after sarpasamskara Pooja within that 12 days is that Bad or dosha or else good??

    1. Dear Smrithi
      Leave some three months gap after the pooja. concentrate on worship of Lord Subrahmanya daily or every Tuesdays and do poojas on every sashti thithi and do visit temple on any of the said days.
      Then need to check for a good day to unite and doing so will give you good result.
