Sarp dosh.

From time immemorial, people and serpents were living in close proximity and had love and hate relationship. It is believed that hurt serpents are vengeful and curse the persons who have hurt them. The serpentine curse has devastating effect, and it is so intense that it continues to haunt even after death (in future births also) till it gets absolved. The adverse effects of Sarpa dosha appear at very important phases of human life, that is, marriage and progeny. Due to Sarpa dosha, marriages are delayed or ruined; Progeny may be denied; miscarriages, still births or defective children may also result.

Due to this belief, serpents are considered to be sacred. They are worshipped and revered. Usually images are carved out of stones and consecrated on neatly built platforms under Peepal or Neem trees, which are considered auspicious. Going around these idols are believed to eliminate the adverse effects caused due to the curse ofserpents.

In astrology, malefic planets Rahu and Ketu are considered to be the head and tail of a serpent. Adverse positioning of these planets in a chart is said to arise as a result of wrath and curse of serpents. All the planets hemmed in between Rahu and Ketu in a natal chart is termed as Kala-sarpa Yoga, which causes obstructions, sufferings and failures in the native’s early period of life.

The planets to indicate Sarpa dosha are the three malefics Rahu, Ketu and Gulika. While examining a Prasna chart, position of these planets from Aruda rasi, Ascendant, Chandra rasi and positioning of other planets from the above rasis indicate the details of the cause of the problem and remedy to be adopted for Sarpa dosha. (Aruda rasi is the sign rising at the time of the query).

Positions of planets causing Sarpa dosha
*** Rahu / Ketu in *Badaka sign or in 6th, 8th, 12th, 4th or 7th house.
***Gulika in unfavourable sign.
***Positioning of Jupiter (as Badaka lord) in 6th, 8th or 12th house from Aruda rasi and that sign also happens to be Kendra to Rahu. This causes sarpadosha of a superior type ofserpents.
***Jupiter (as Badaka lord) in 6th, 8th or 12th house from Aruda rasi and that sign is also Kendra to Gulika. This Sarpa dosha is caused by a inferior type ofserpents.
***Rahu positioned along with Gulika or in 5th, 7th or 9th house from Gulika.
***Mars and Saturn in Kendra to Rahu.
***Rahu positioned in Badaka sign and aspected or conjunct with Sun. (as shown in the example chart). This causes Sarpa dosha of a superior type ofserpents.
***Rahu in Badaka sign and aspected or conjunct with Moon (as in the example chart). This Sarpa dosha is due to inferior type ofserpents.
If Sun and Moon are placed as mentioned above, the cause of Sarpa dosha is due to both inferior and superior type of serpents. (as in the example chart). The serpents Anandhan, Vasuki and Thakshana are considered as superior type and the serpents like Karkotakan, Karinagam etc. are of inferior type.

The example chart is a chart of Prasna, conducted on 21st January 2000. In this chart, the cause of Sarpa dosha is due to superior as well as inferior types ofserpents. A couple approached with their problem. Since marriage , the lady had three miscarriages. She was under constant treatment by a qualified and experienced Gynecologist, yet menstrual disorder continued. As far as the husband is concerned, his semen test showed lack of sperms. The situation was not conducive for the couple to have progeny. Further for self-protection and good health, Maha Sudarsana Yantra was prescribed, and both of them were advised to visit Sri Kalahasti and perform remedies as prescribed. They followed the first advice immediately and the health condition of the wife improved. They visited the temple after a delay of a few months, which also yielded quick result. The girl conceived the same month they visited the temple and a healthy baby was born at an auspicious moment, fulfilling long cherished desire.
