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.

    Since 3 years I am facing difficulty in job, not able to change the job also. I have 1 year 4 months baby. My husband is not working since 1 and half year. Very difficult situation, he quit the job to do some business. No income til now. Very much frustrated in life with my job too. And he doesn’t have a job at al.. he will not take my opinions, less understanding between us. We end up fighting daily due to his job issue. And we had visa he didn’t travel abroad also. He is behaving weird. Please suggest what could be done.

    • Dear Shoba
      Your husband wont listen to others words is the problem to him. Kethu making him to act so. Also need to understand realize about the realith of his life. Till he wont realise he cant come up in his life.
      Perform rahu kethu pooja to him on any Sunday rahu kaalam time.
      Or you can also do it on his behalf. But try to take him to the parihara sthala at least.
      Perform Sathyanarayana Vrath pooja at home consulting a Poojari. This may reduce or remove the familial unnecessary tensions.
      Always worship Lord Ganesh at home. Observe fast on every chathurthy lunar day of just worship is also enough but regularly.
      For you just worship Lord Ganesh daily before sun rise time. Write your problem in a paper and fold it and keep it before Lord Gensh on ever Chathurthy lunar day.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Mahesha
      Presently you are in Rahu Maha dasa till 07.2025. Any planet in 8th house is not auspicious, rahu in this and weak and not its maha dasa and hence the adverse effects.
      Also you should do pooja to rahu and keth with six months gap.
      Do the rahu kethu pooja once in every six months or once in a year on a Krishna Panchami raahu kaal time is very auspicious for you. Do pooja on this lunar day and seek the blessings of the lord. You may find obstacles or troubles till the end of this dasha.
      Also recite Guru Manthra for 108 times daily or every Thursdays.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Manoj
      Presently your brother is under Rahu maha dasa till 2022 where rahu is placed normal only.
      Need to check the present transit of planets also.
      Perform Rudhra Abhishekam first and then Rahu kethu pooja at any Kalahasthi on a Sashti thithi rahu kaalam time.
      Daily worship of Lord Ganesh and Hanuman is beneficial.
      Perform Sathyanarayana vrath pooja at home. Also either can do the Maha Mrithyujeya homam or can just recite Mrithyunjeya manthra for 108 times daily or every Mondays evening between 0600 and 0730 hrs.
      Visiting Lord Shiva or Kaala Bhairava temples regularly is good. Can also offer ghee lamps to Kaala Bhairava on Sunday rahu kaalam time for 7 or 21 Sundays.
      May God Bless Your Brother
      Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Nita shah

  16. Hi, My name is mahesh and my daughter is 6 months old. One of the astrologar suggested us to do sarpa dosa pooja for my daughter so please suggest us from now when will be the best time to go? please suggest us Particular day and month. And we are planning for hair cut function in 9th month going to tirupathi so after that can we do this pooja in the next day? Or seperately we should go so plz suggest us.

    Thank you.

    • Dear Mahesh
      A six months child should not be taken to such rahu kethu parihara sthalas. Better wait till completion of at least two to three year of age.
      First proceed for the hair tonsuring ceromony at tirumala at her 9th age. Late see to this.
      Till that you may offer worship to Lord Ganesh and Subrahmanya regularly at home and regularly take her to Subrahmanya temple is enough.
      If you find any thing very bad with the child, then you can do on behalf of your child. But should take a complete bath before entering your home after from the parihara sthala i mean temple. This you can do after her first year completion.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    D.O.B – 11.JULY.1986, 12:07 AM


    • Dear Manoj Raj
      To answer your requirement we need to study your present transit. Sorry to say that we do not have time to do such. Hope you can understand.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    • Dear Sana
      Both are same. Kaala sarpa dosha nivarana pooja, rahu kethu pooja, rahu kethu shanthi are all same.
      But some pooja vidhaan differs in some temple like Kukke Subrahmanya, Trimbakeshwar etc,.
      If you want to do it simply and easily then you can visit Kalahasthi.
      Om Namah Shivaya
