  1. Sir
    its for my sister
    name : rohini b ,date of birth 05/01/1992 ,time of birth : 6.05 am
    she is trying for government jobs from three years but losing it by margin ?
    Why is it so ?
    please suggest how her martial life will be( as of now she is unmarried) and will she get a government job ? if any pariharas to be done please explain in detail sir
    thanking you in advance for help sir

    1. Dear Shruthi
      Sorry that we do not predict about job and career, Futur or about Married life. We do give presence of any dosha in the chart only.
      Rohini has Kuja dosham and hence marriage delays. May happen after 28 or 30th age.
      For marriage need to perform Kumba vivaha ritual and attending Lord Venkateshwara or Nrusimha swamy Kalyana mahothsav on a Tuesday is beneficial.
      Reg govt job nothing seems prospective. If anything happens that should be after a very very hard work.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    1. Dear Arjun Karthik
      Just do – worship Lord Ganesh slokam then OM GHAM GANAPATHAYE NAMAH for 108 times. And read Hanuman chaleesha or any bhajans of Lord Rama daily or every Tuesdays and Saturdays.
      Visit Hanuman temple regularly and circumnavigate Navagrahas there regularly.
      Try to do this sincerely and make your request with the lord and if you get their blessing then you can get your desired job.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    Now I am suffering financially badly, please suggest me,danyavadamulu.

    1. Dear Ankalu
      Need precise date of birth details then only we check about dosha otherwise we do not as it may not be correct.
      Just worship Lord Ganesh, your Ishta devatha and your family deity regularly.
      This may give a solution for you.
      Performing water abhishekam to Lord Shiva regularly is also one of the best remedy.
      Om Namah Shivaya

  4. My Date of birth is 17/01/1980. I am facing lot of health issues continuously. Can you kindly let me know if any problem.


    1. Dear Selvaraj
      Time of birth also need.
      Or just worship Lord Ganesh and recite Maha Mrithyunjeya Manthra for 108 times and worship Lord Shiva.
      Perform water abhishek to Shiva linga daily or every Mondays evening between 06.00 and 07.30 pm after reading the above manthra. If you read the above manthra sincerely and could please the lord with your prayers then you may get recover from any sort of bad health.
      Attend Pradosh kaal pooja held in Lord Shiva temple.
      Perform Surya Namaskaram early in the morning while sun rising. Best for immunity. But learn under the supervision of a well trained Guru.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    1. Dear Shalu Singh
      Your son is born in Budha dasa and its very weak and hence suffering with health issues.
      Please do the following poojas for you kid.
      Rahu kethu on a Sunday rahu kaalam time. Or you plan and post a comment and i will give dates for that month. First offer worship or pooja to Lord Ganesh and then do the rahu kethu pooja.
      And need to do pooja for Lord Sun and Mercury (Budha). Performing Adithya parayana is must.
      Regularly perform pooja to Lord Ganesh and Hanuman at home and visit temple also.
      Maha Mrithyunjeya jap homa and attending Pradhosha kaal pooja is also beneficial.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    Awaiting for your kind suggestion.



    1. Dear Anand.
      You have vasi yoga and hence you are struggling for a stable income. Also rahu is place in 2nd house which is not good.
      So just worship Lord Hanuman regularly by reciting hanuman chaleesha daily or on every Tuesday and Saturday. Ardent worship of this lord will maket you boost up your confidence.
      You can also do the rahu kethu pooja since rahu is not placed well. Start with a simple ganesha pooja before this parihara pooja.
      Namah shivaya

  7. Dear sir,

    My name is Rajesh Born on 01/04/1991 at gudiyatham, Tamilnadu.

    Father: Balaiah M
    Mother: Bharathi D

    My question is, I live in bangalore I was jogging in a ground while running on the track I just saw a snake entered the track in front of me and it wasn’t moving for around 1 minute it was looking at me I just got scared and jumped 3 meters away and I too was just looking at the snake till it is gone…

    Snake description: it was around 2.5 to 3 feet long may be brown colour, I am not sure it is naag or other snake it was dark in there I did not observe much I was too scared.

    I am preparing for a government job in karnataka electricity board. ..

    What exactly it was indicating to me???

    Sir plz help me what should I do now.

    1. Dear Rajesh
      You don’t have Rahu Kethu dosham.
      Here we need to see which dasha you are in and for that need your time of birth also. If we finalise that we can tell you.
      You told that you have seen a snake but could not confirm whether it is cobra or any other. We need a confirmation about which snake is that. Then only we can say you about the Shakun (good or bad).
      No matter about the snake here. God comes in any form to alert us as a sign. Dont think whether it is positive or negative.
      It is a sign just to warn you to be VERY CAREFUL, in putting your each steps forward to achieve your goals.
      One thing i can say you – the result depends on the way we think about positive or negative and approach about it, keep update our knowledge and use our best presence of mind. We can be confident wen we are in best knowledge.
      So don’t think about the snake issue. Just see at your goal and look forward of what to do.
      Best remedy (if possible do these ) –
      Just worship Lord Hanuman daily, ardently in the morning and visit his temple when ever possible. Tie a Hanuman dollar to your neck and always have a sindoora namam on you fore head.
      Also recite the Gayathri Manthra for 108 times daily in the morning. This prevents you from all the malefic planets.
      Every Saturday circumnavigate the Navagraha continuously of till your possibility.

      Namah Shivaya
