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.
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. While a good gemstone helps in strengthening the planet it represents in a kundali, wearing a flawed gemstone should be avoided at all cost. It can cause many hardships.
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:
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.
