I know you all will be surprised to know that there is no mention about Kaal Sarp Dosha in any of the ancient vedic or astrological texts. The first time it was ever talked about was in 1900’s by some astrologers. They just took out this idea because there is mention of Kaala Sarpa in Griha Sutra while doing Grah Poojan, it must have had something to do with Kaal Sarp Dosh.
What Exactly is Kaal Sarp Dosh according to Pandit’s?
As per pundits when all planets are placed or hammed between Rahu and Ketu in the natal chart , Kaal Sarp Dosh is formed. I have even heard stories where some astrologers are of the view that Kaal Sarp Dosha ceases to exit after the age of 55.
Generally there are 12 types of Kaal Sarpa Dosha
Some pundits are also of the view that is you see snakes in your dreams, you will certainly have Kaal Sarp Dosh and this Dosh needs a remedy almost instantly. ………… I DO NOT AGREE AT ALL.
Why Some astrologers have made this Dosha so dreaded or feared?
The reason is simple…… MONEY
Kaal Sarp Dosh Nivaran pooja is one of the most expensive pooja and often not possible for most individuals to do it alone. There are certain places ( TRAMBAKESHWAR) where this Pooja is recommended doing and the MIND YOU … the pooja is expensive and not easily affordable, so pundits have another way of getting this done in Haridwar , Rishikesh and some more places now.
They charge between 31000 to 100000 Rs for this pooja and often ale create a pendant with rahu and ketu’s gemstones to be worn in silver. These are also made by the astrologer you hire and might cost another 20000 to 30000 Rs.
Although astrologers claim that the pooja if done with proper devotion and proper way is very effective, I have not found any person till date who was totally happy.
An Interesting incident!!!!!!!!
About an year ago I was sitting in a conference with some renowned astrologers who were discussing about Kaal Sarp Dosha and how it affects lives.
Apart from me, everyone was of the view that Kaal Sarpa Dosha is the most dangerous dosha present and a person having this dosha can never achieve his goals.
I disagreed and gave them examples and here I present them before you
- Sachin Tendulkar has Kaal Sarp Dosh
- Jwahar La Nehru has the same Dosha present in his horoscope
- Saurav Ganguly has Kaal Sarp Dosh
- Dhiru Bhai Ambani
- Margaret Thatcher (Former prime Minister UK)
- Nelson Mandela
None of the astrologers present there had a word to speak, apart from one voice who said exceptions are always there, but he soon came to know he was contradicting himself so sat down.
It is my request to all readers to please be logical in your approach, even if for one minute, we agree on kaal sarp dosha , we should go for remedies which are logical and would help in improving our karma’s.
Please note an astrologer can only direct your actions towards right things, he cannot predict, you bear the result of your karma’s.
Remedies for Rahu and Ketu
- Feed ants with dry flour
- Feed fish
- Help people in getting justice
- Never bribe
- Om Chanting
- Feed Cows
- Never let your stomach get upset. This is the first thing you should do if Rahu gets malefic.
There are other remedies as well.
Remedies of doing pooja can help but only if you do it yourself with full devotion. Helping living beings, and doing karmic remedies reap faster results and are more satisfying as well.
