Remedies to Get Rid of Mangal Dosha Effects
According to Hindu astrology, mangal dosha is an abnormality in the horoscope chart which affects lives of men and women alike. It is also called Kuja Dosha, Bhom Dosha and Angarakha Dosh. It gets its name from the placement of Mars, commonly known as Mangal. Out of the 12 houses in a horoscope chart, if the Mars is in 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th and 12th house, then it is said to be a Mangal Dosha and the person is called a Manglik. The dosha is generally known to have its ill effects on married lives. The problems in a marriage are believed to be an influence of this dosha if either of the person is Manglik. There are several remedies one can adopt to reduce the ill-effects of Mangal Dosha:
1. Marriage between people who are both Mangliks:
If two Mangliks get married, the negative influence of the dosha stands nullified. Thus, the couple can enjoy a hurdle-free married life. The reasons manglik people usually opt for a manglik partner as it makes the marriage hassle free and more positive. Such kind of a union turns beneficial for all. Also, there are no reasons to worry as there are too many mangliks too who are looking out for other mangliks for the purpose of marriage.
Hindu culture supports the practice of observing fast to cure several ill-effects in the horoscope charts. Similar, Mangliks observing a fast on a Tuesday is considered to be very effective in reducing the ill-effects of mangal. The reasoning behind fasting is all for the sacrifice one can make in order to achieve positive rewards. Such sacrifices are believed to calm down the temperament of the planets and once they are calmed things get easier for the individual.
Gemstones have been long since associated with influencing one’s life in various ways. Different signs have different stones associated to it. To cure mangal dosha, one should wear a bright red coral studded gold ring in the ring finger of their right hand. However, gemstones are also believed to have negative effects if they do not suit your sign or horoscope. Thus, always make sure before wearing any stone, by getting your horoscope analyzed from a trusted astrologer.
4. Performing pujas:
Mangal Dosha can be reduced by visiting the Navgraha temples. There are very few temples in India that are dedicated to the worship of Lord Mangal. Performing pujas in these temples on Tuesday is believed to be an effective remedy to treat mangal dosha. Also, visiting a Hanuman Temple, offering vermillion and sweets and lighting a ghee lamp, on Tuesday, is also considered effective. Doing such pujas from time to time as prescribed by the priest helps to ward off the negativity from the lives.
5. Kumbh Vivah:
When one of the partners is Manglik, the negative effects of their mangal dosha can be eliminated by performing an elaborate ritual called the ‘Kumbh Vivah’. Hindu Vedic Astrology suggests that marrying a manglik individual to a banyan tree, peepal tree or an idol of Lord Vishnu made of gold or silver can help reduce ill effects of Mangal on their married life. This is usually the first step towards banishing the ill effects of mangal dosha. It is believed that marrying a living thing apart from human before marrying the prospect bride/groom removes all the negativity which can create problems for the couple in the future.
