    • Dear Ashwini
      There is Naaga dosham in his chart and hence physical issues so performing Naaga Prathishta pooja at Kukke Subrahmanya temple is must. You can even perform Sarpa Samskaara Pooja but not mandatory.
      Rahu Maha Dasa starts from 12.2021 till December 2039. Since Rahu is placed malefic the coming pperiod may have troubles.
      So performing rahu kethu pooja during the month of June or July of 2021 is beneficial.
      See Ashwini, till the completion of his third year don’t take him to temple weher Kaala Sarpa Dorsha Nivarana Pooja. Instead take him to Lord Subrahmanya temple and make abhishekam in his name and gothra or in the the name of the Lord.
      For now you can perform Maha Mruthyunjeya japa manthra pooja with the help of a poojari or yourself can recite the manthra for 108 times having thechild on your lap. After reading of manthra is over perform water abhishekam to Lord Shiva Linga. You can do this pooja daily or every Mondays evening between 0600 and 0730 pm.
      You can even pooja to Lord Subrahmanya on every sashti thithi starting it on a Shukla sashti thithi.
      What ever pooja or prayers you do first start pooja to Lord Ganesha.
      Tie him a Durga maa dollar made of copper on an auspicious day in a temple.
      Not required to perform pooja as said by the other astrologer or whomsoever i it is.
      Just worship Lord Ganesh, Subrahmanya, Shiva and Hanuman regularly and put your faith on the lords and they will save your son. Circumnavigate Navagraha on every Saturdays regularly.
      Reciting Garuda manthra on every Saturdays is also one of the best remedy malefic rahu and kethu.
      Extremely sorry for the delay.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    I’m from Malaysia. Please check for me if i got Kaala Sarpha fish’s because astrologers here said i got the dosham.
    My details
    Name : Satheesh
    Date of birth : 12.09.1982
    Time of birth : 12.43pm (Malaysia time)
    Place of birth : Kuala Lumpur

    I’m coming to Sri Kalahasthi on 19th January 2019
    Please let me know what poojai to be done if I got Kaala sarpha dhosam.

    Thank you.

    • Dear Satheesh
      When all the planets are placed inbetween rahu and keth then it is considered as Kaala sarpa dosham.
      Some astrologers believe that when a benefic Jupiter (Guru) is aspected then it turns good only. That happened in your horoscope and hence no kaal sarp dosh.
      But has Kethu dosham. Hence you will find problems in financial as he is placed malefic in Dhana sthana. And also you will have more expenses that you may not be able to meet with your earnings / lack in savings.
      Perform rahu kethu pooja on 20th January 2019 Sunday Pournami (best) evening between 0430 and 0600 hrs. If it is not possible to stay and do the pooja on Sunday then you can do it on Saturday.
      Tickets cost – rs 500, 750, 1500, 2000 and 5000 available.
      You can book online or in person booking is very well available without troubles but only thing you should arrive the temple one hour before rahu kaalam time as i said above.
      Om Namah Shivaya
