How to Remove Manglik Dosha


Vedic astrology teaches that doshas result from flawed aspects in a person's horoscope. According to the website, Vedic Astrology Predication, Mars positioned in the first, fourth, seventh, eighth or 12th house creates a Manglik Dosha. This "evil" aspect can indicate that a person's spouse may die early in the union. Three ceremonies to remove a Manglik Dosha include, but are not limited to, Kumbh Vivah, Vishnu Vivah and a Mangal Dosh Nivaran puja. A puja is a worship ceremony.

Things You'll Need

  • Clay pot
  • Red thread
  • Fresh basil leaves

Kumbh Vivah

  • Ask a Hindu priest to perform a Kumbh Vivah ceremony to lift a Manglik Dosha. This involves the bride, a red thread and a clay urn. The ceremony takes place immediately before the wedding. The girl sits with her parents. She holds a red thread, which she discards when the ceremony is over. The priest crushes the clay pot, which symbolizes the death of her spouse.

  • Remove a manglik dosha with a Vishnu Vivah ceremony, also known as a Tulsi Vivah. In this ceremony, devotees celebrate the marriage of the Hindu god Vishnu using tulsi (basil) leaves. When the bride bathes in the water containing sacred tulsi, she is granted the same soul-cleansing virtues as taking an official Vishnu Vivah pilgrimage. During the ceremony, she also wears a tulsi bead necklace to remove her fear of death.

  • Ask a Hindu priest to perform a Mangal Dosh Nivaran puja ceremony with the bride before the wedding. This ceremony involves installing images of the Hindu gods Ganesha, Navgraha and Shiva and performing the worship in front of them.The priest performs Vedic rituals and chants mantras and japa (chanting the names of the gods) to remove the Manglik Dosha. The priest bases the ritual's exact details on the girl's Vedic astrological chart.

Tips & Warnings

  • Consult a Vedic astrologer to evaluate the level of Manglik Dosha in a Vedic astrological chart.
