Kaal Sarp Dosh Remedies


Kaal Sarp Yog, also known as Kaal Sarp Dosh, is one of the most feared astrological combinations that can bring extreme bad luck in one’s life. Kaal Sarp Yog is formed in one’s Kundli when all the seven major planets including Saturn, Jupiter, Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury and Venus are placed between Rahu and Ketu, wherein Rahu represents the Serpent’s head and Ketu denotes the Serpent’s tail. The presence of this Yoga in one’s Kundali can have some harmful effects on the native.

Kaal Sarp Dosh effects are extremely dangerous and can affect the native’s life financially, professionally, personally, mentally and emotionally. Moreover, this Dosha can also nullify the positive effects of the planets which are favorable. There are certain remedies and solutions which one must follow to reduce the negative impact of Kaal Sarp Dosh effectively.

  • Offer Prayers To Snake Gods

The native should offer prayers to Nagaraja and all other Snake Gods every Sunday and on Panchami Tithi.

  • Chant ‘Om Namah Shivaya’

One of the simplest and the most effective Kaal Sarp Dosh remedies is to chant the Panchakshara Mantra, i.e. “Om Namah Shivaya” at least 108 times in a day. The blessings of Lord Shiva will give you the ability to overcome all the difficulties that come in life due to Kaal Sarp Yog.

  • Visit a Holy Place

The native should visit such pilgrimage sites which are considered auspicious for people having Kaal Sarp Dosha. For example, taking a holy dip in Rameshwaram Temple in Tamil Nadu and offering prayers to Ancestors can nullify Pitra Shrap, if that is the reason for Kaal Sarp Dosh. Also, visiting temples such as Mahakaleshwar in Ujjain, Kalahasti in Andhra Pradesh, Trimbakeshwar in Nashik (Maharashtra), etc and performing puja of Lord Shiva there can alleviate the negative effects of this Dosha to a great extent.

  • Chant Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra

Chanting Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra at least 108 times in a day can diminish the adverse effects of this Dosha.

  • Worship Lord Shiva

Performing Puja of Lord Shiva with Milk and Abhishek can yield good results for an individual having Kaal Sarp Dosha. Shiva Puja must be done in a temple with offerings of milk, flowers, Bilva Patra, fruits and plums every Monday. After this, one should donate food and clothes to the needy and the poor. Performing Lord Shiva’s Puja on Maha Shivratri can yield maximum results.

  • Chant Gayatri Mantra

The native should chant Gayatri Mantra either 21 times or 108 times in a day. You should wake up early, take a bath and then chant this Mantra facing the sun. It is believed that those who chant Gayatri Mantra religiously will be protected from all adversities in life.

  • Worship Nataraja

Worship Lord Nataraja, the dancing avatar of Lord Shiva, and perform Shanti Puja on Sashti Tithi.

  • Kaal Sarp Dosh Nivaran Puja
