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 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:

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 consists of havan 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 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 with the same cloths.

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.

  • Hi

    Name : T. Chandrasekhar
    DOB: 21-7-1986
    TOB: 2pm
    POB: madanapalli

    My son marriage was getting delayed. We did many paripharas for him still the Marr was not fixed.Already he is 35 years. May I know when he will get marry.

    • Dear Ram Mohan
      Its because of Kalathra Dosham and the Lord of the 7th house Mars is maraka planet for Libra ascendent. Since there is Kalathra dosham and Lord of 7th house is Maraka the delay is happening. But to confirm some more aspects need to check some other natal charts.
      We can understand your problem but to find about the possibility or when a native gets marry, we need to check all Natal charts which we do not do due to some reasons. Very sorry for that to inform.
      Need to perform Rahu Kethu pooja regularly once in a year to pacify Rahu.
      Tell him to observe Sashti vrath for 21 consequtive sashti thithi starting it from Shukla Paksha Sashti thithi.
      Or else to perform 7 Saturdays vrath is also very powerful in blessing a desire to happen.
      Om Namah Shivaya
