Remedies for Manglik Dosha

By Kshitij Sharma, July 9, 2014

This post is a compendium of remedies advised for manglik dosha elsewhere in the website. There are tons of questions around this hence the need to consolidate it in one place and add my thoughts and analysis around it.

Recap: Manglik Dosha is caused due to position of Mars (mangal) in certain houses in the horoscope that is said to have an impact on married life and family before and after the marriage. This dosha needs to be negated with matching the horoscope with someone of similar nature in a hope that two negatives come together and make it a positive life. I have explained it in another post on dosha samyam here – Horoscope Incompatibility & Remedies that we need to necessarily look at all the factors in the horoscope chart including overlapping Vimshottari Dasha in order to arrive at the right horoscope compatibility. Still, I get questions about the way forward if there is such a dosha in the chart, so this post is to answer these questions and to quench the curiosity.

Alternatives for Gemstones

By Kshitij Sharma, May 24, 2014

It is not always possible to get a good gemstone that does not have a dosha in it. We should wear gemstones that are free of inclusions and flaws. Brihat Samhita talks about how these flaws look like. The author says that a gemstone with blemishes that looks like crow feet, an insect or an inclusion with a different material should be avoided.

Graha Shanti Remedies Steps

By Kshitij Sharma, May 19, 2014

Lal Kitab and many other astrological texts talk about donation of few things for planets that are either malefic, weak or afflicted in a janma kundali. For example, for malefic Sun in a horoscope, wheat, gold needs to be donated. Mung, green fruits are donated for Mercury. Similarly, if moon is afflicted in a kundali, one should donate silver and rice. However, you might be wondering how exactly to donate these things. Please follow these steps:

  1. First and foremost, have faith and believe that this remedy is absolutely going to work. Have faith the in actions you are about to undertake.
  2. Choose a day for the donation, as per the vaar of the planet. For Rahu, choose Thursdays and for Ketu – Tuesday.
  3. Take a reasonable sized piece of cloth as per the colour of the planet, e.g. saffron/kesariya for Sun, white for Moon, red for Mars, green for Mercury etc.
  4. Take 1.25 kgs of the items, mung, wheat etc. Take a piece of sweet, barfi or jaggery along with some money (11/-, 51/-, 101/-) as per your interest.
  5. Take a small wooden basket (बाँस की टोकरी) and and put the cloth in the basket. Put the items that you are donating in this basket such that the piece of sweet and money is completely covered by the cloth and isn’t visible at all.
  6. Call the person to your house early in the morning. Have him/her seated with in your house with all the respect, the way you would treat your guest and gift the items to him.

As I said, this is a matter of belief and must be followed as such. You must have faith in these remedial measures in order for them to work in your horoscope.
