Kaal Sarpa Dosha – What is Kal Sarpa Yog?

Kaal Sarpa Dosha is a bad planetary position in a person’s horoscope and is considered harmful by those people who believe in astrology. It is believed that those who have Kal Sarpa Yog in their horoscope will have to go through tough times throughout the life. Astrologers suggest that this dosha happens due to the bad positioning of Rahu. The best remedy suggested to get rid of this yog is to worship Hanuman and perform Nagdosh Nivaran Puja.
As a remedy for this dosha some people also release a pair of snakes into forest on the Nag Panchami day – fifth day of the shukla paksha or waxing phase of moon in Shravan month (July – August).
Another remedy suggested to get rid of Kal Sarpa Yog is feeding of ants and fishes.

Bhartrihari Thoughts and Quotes

The moderate man’s virtue is called dullness; the man who lives by rigid vows is considered arrogant; the pure minded is deceitful; the hero is called unmerciful; the sage is contemptuous; the polite man is branded as servile, the noble man is proud; the eloquent man is called a chatterer; freedom from passion is said to be feebleness. These are the ways in which evil-minded people describe good virtues.Firmness in adversity, restraint in prosperity, eloquence in the assembly, boldness in war, the desire for glory, study in the scriptures – these are the natural characteristics of the virtuous.The heart of the wise is soft as a lotus flower in prosperity, but in adversity it is as firm as a mountain rock.Bhartrihari
