What is Kala Sarpa Dosha?

Kaala Sarpa Dosh is all about a 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 Kaal Sarpa Yoga can be formed, the moon in the eight houses of the natal chart being one of the ways. However, there are no rules of thumb to Kaal 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 controlled by offering prayers to Lord Shiva at some chosen destinations. Srikalahasti is one of them.

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 favor of one’s gotra, caste and janma nakshatra. ** No need to discard your clothes or having a bath after the pooja. You can go in the same clothes.

Best Timing to perform Rahu Ketu Pooja :

For Sani Bhagavan Saturdays are the best day.
For Rahu Ketu, Monday is the best day.
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 a fair amount of time for the completion of the same.

    1. Dear Indumathy
      We do check certain dosha and its remedies and not Health Astrology.
      But here is some remedies to overcome your mothers stomach problem.
      She should wake up early in the morning before sun rise. After the daily morning kriyas,
      First always worship Lord Ganesh.
      Then during the sun rise time first read Adithya Hridayam manthra if possible and or then perform Surya Namaskaram. Take her to a learned Guru to learn the precise way or you can learn it from videos also. If you want the best Yoga then she can learn Kapal Bhati Pranayam, which is a supercure for Stomach related problems.
      And doing some other poses like Paschimotanasana, Tadasana, Vrikshashana and Trikonasana also help.
      Then tell her to worship your family deity, and Lord Shiva. Perform water abhishekam to Lord Shiva and reciting Maha Mrithyunjeya Manthra daily is a great remedy to cure for any sort of ailments. So tell her to do it. If this done on every Mondays evening during Pradosha kaal it give best result. Attending Pradosha kaal pooja is also a best remedy.
      Then should worship Lord Nrusimha / Hanuman on every Saturdays. Visiting Nrusimha temple or any swaroop of Lord Vishnu or a Hanuman temple on every Saturdays is beneficial. reciting either Nrusimha Sahasranama sthothram or Vishnu Sahasranaama Sthothram or Hanuman chaleesha in the temple is advisable.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    1. Dear Thanmai
      Presently he is in the Saturn Maha Dasa and hence there will be more bad and less good result.
      So doing Venkateshwara 7 Saturdays Vrath gives him better relief. He should do it sincerely and devotedly.
      Also worship Lord Hanuman is best remedy for this Dasa. Tell him to have saffron tilak daily before going out. Reciting Hanuman chaleesha, visiting Hanuman temple and donating gingely oil to Hanuman temple are best remedies.
      Tell him not to buy anything black in color on any Saturdays.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    1. Dear Murugan
      Without precise Date and Time of Birth cant derive the precise astrologicval details to suggest remedes or solution as what you have asked regarding business name also for better result.
      So worship your Family deity and ishta devatha daily and alonv with that worship Lord Hanuman to bless with good Presence of Mind and to gain knowledge to crack the competitive exams.
      Regarding Business name do like this, use / keep your family deity name or any of your grand father / mother whom you like most, as your Business name. And do regular poojas at your business and keep clean and tidy your office room.
      Om Namah Shivaya
