The truth about Kaal Sarpa Yog and Mangal Dosh

Going through a bad phase in your life? All solutions have failed, no matter what you do then what? Usually when you are at your wits end, you consult an astrologer to see if something is wrong with your planets, stars. After studying Rashi, birth star and time of birth and other parameters, the astrologers suggest remedies to get rid of the negativity or any ‘dosh’ there may be. Usually there are two doshas you are inflicted with, the Mangal Dosha and Kaal Sarpa Yog.

What do you mean by the ‘Doshas’

Hindu Astrology is based on the location of moon in contrast to the western astrology which is based on the sun. The planetary motions of universe influence human beings on earth. Depending on the alignment of the planets, they influence in positive or negative way. When planets are aligned in a manner that impresses negativity at your time of birth, your life gets affected by turmoil and problems. Depending on the negative alignment of planets, you either suffer the ‘Kaal Sarpa yog’ or ‘Mangal Dosha’.

What do you mean by Rahu and Kethu

Rahu and kethu are two planets or according to the Hindu Astrology, two demons of Hindu astrology that are a cause for most of the negativities in your life. So, when the rest of the planets are aligned in between these two, it is considered to be a very bad omen and results in Kaal Sarp Yog. There are twelve kinds of kaal sarp yog, also called kaal sarp dosh, depending on the impact of planetary alignment at the time of birth. Mangal Dosha is caused because of the unfavourable positioning of planet Mars. Both these kinds of dosh bring problems in professional and personal lives.

How Real Are these ‘Doshas’?

Reality or authenticity of these dosha is always under speculation. While the hardcore believers of ancient arts of Astrology swear by these principles, but the modern generation disbelieves this play of planets.

Scientifically though, these principles do make a lot of sense. You cannot deny that planets do have an impact on the energies within you and these energies make you behave in a certain way. The energies within you lead you in life. So, when there are a lot of negative energies pressing you down, especially when the energies are from the universe, you might be affected in some manner.

The counter argument is that people born in the bad phase might not have the same bad affects. Many argue that it is ultimately our mental strength and positivity that triumphs over everything.

Astrology is not a precise art. The proficiency of the Astrologer plays the most crucial role in this. Yet Astrology is based on the Vedic science and is profoundly scientific principle.  If you look at it from this point of view, then the doshas do make sense.
