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. Many of these pujas are performed with ascertained results for those who suffer with marital discord, not begetting children, problems in jobs and many long-standing problems. The puja is performed to neutralize the malefic effects of the planets and cut out its negative effect on the life of the individual.

The Pooja:

The Rahu ketu Pooja lasts for 30-40 minutes, and it is always better to get the pooja performed during Rahu kalam. Unlike other pooja that consist of hawan or homa (fire ceremony), the Rahu Ketu Nivran Pooja is all done by chanting mantras for two metallic snake strips that represent Rahu and Ketu. 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.

Best Timing to perform Rahu Ketu Pooja :

For Sani Bhagavan Saturdays is 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 fair amount of time for the completion of the same.

  13. After performing rahu kethu pariharam, and if we get married (as we did the pooja for marriage ) should we do anything again or visit the temple to complete the dosha shanthi.

    • Dear Krishna
      Doing this pooja for once may not get the malefic planets pacified. So doing the pooja once in year is beneficial.
      Also regular worship of Lord Ganesh and Subrahmanya is must.
      Temples like Mopi Devi Subrahmanya and Ghati Subrahmaya are best to visit and worship or doing pooja here is best to pacify Rahu kethu.
      Yes you can get marry and then do as I told above.

  19. Hello sir, My name is Sudini Vineeth Reddy born on 9th August 1996 11:45AM. My Mom told me to do Rahu ketu Pooja in kalahasti. I want to perform it. So, can you tell the information regarding that clearly about how much it costs totally including ticket cost, dakshina, Pooja samagri and other things. And can I book ticket through online? If so, please provide online booking details.

    • Dear Vineeth
      Ticket cost – rs 1500 (inside the main temple compound), rs 750 (hall) and rs 350 (hall) tickets are there. So you can chose.
      If you prefer to do the rahu kethu pooja during raahu kaal time then you should reach before on hour the ticket counter.
      You need not buy anything required for the pooja as the pooja samagri will be issued along with the ticket. Don’t get fooled with the touts unnecessarily.
      Pooja timing – 45 minutes nearly.
      You need to follow what ever the poojs says to do. The poojari recite manthras and you need to follow him making pooja to two naaga silver idols. The poojari will give assistancee in three to four languages for your clarity.
      After finishing the pooja get dharshan of Lord Shiv and Amm and then go straight back to your home only.
      If wanna visit any temples visit first them and then come to Kalahashti and then back to your home.
      After reaching your have a head bath and then get into your home washing your clothes also as a precautionary step only and not mandatory.
      Om Namah Shivyaa
