Astrological Remedies for Manglik or Mangal Dosha or Kuja Dosha

Mangal Dosha, also known as Kuja Dosha or Chowa Dosha, is said to occur when Lord Mangal (Planet Mars or Kuja) is situated in 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th house of a Rashi or lunar chart (Moon chart). It is also called as Manglik dosha, Kuja Dosha, Bhom Dosha (Bhauma Dosha) or Angaraka Dosha. According to Vedic Astrology, a person born in this condition is called as Manglik.

Astrological Remedies for Manglik or Mangal Dosha or Kuja Dosha

Mangal (Angaraka or Kujan) is one of the Navagraha planets in Hindu Vedic astrology and represents courage, strength, power, and aggression. Mangal or Kuja is celibate and is regarded as the “God of War” and also a teacher of the Ruchaka Mahapurusha Yoga (Occult Science). Mangal rules over the signs Mesha (Aries) and Vrishchika (Scorpio). Lord Surya, Lord Chandra and Brihaspati or Planet Jupiter are the planets which are considered friendly to him. A positive influence of Angaraka (Mars) can give a person energy, strong will, independence and self confidence.

Mangal Dosha - Chowa Dosha or Kuja Dosha

However, the negative influence of Mangal, known as Mangal Dosha, is believed to be harmful for marriage, resulting in distress and tension in relationship, separation and even divorce. In certain cases, Chowa Dosha is believed to cause unfortunate death of one spouse. On the other hand, the negative effects of Kuja Dosha get cancelled by itself if a Manglik person is born on Tuesday. Moreover, if two Mangliks marry, the negative effects are believed to cancel each other.

Following are some of the Astrological remedies for Manglik Dosha

1) Kumbh Vivah

It is said that the negative effects for a single-manglik marriage can be resolved by performing a ceremony called Kumbh Vivah by the Manglik. It is a ceremony where the Manglik marries a banana tree, a peepal tree, or a silver or golden idol of Lord Vishnu.

2) Position of Mangal (Mars planet) in Horoscope

Astrologers say that if the first house is Aries or Mesha and Mars is in Aries, the Kuja Dosha is not effective, as Aries is the Own House of Mars.

3) Fasting to appease Mangal

Observing fast on Tuesdays is one of the remedies to appease Mangal. Toor Dhal (split pigeon pea) is the grain related to Mars and persons who observe fast on Tuesdays can consume it.

4) Chanting Navagraha Mantras

Apart from reciting the mantras of Mangal, people can perform particular rituals and poojas to appease the elements in their chart. Chanting Navagraha Stotra is also considered an efficient astrological remedy for Manglik.

5) Visiting Navagraha Temples and performing Poojas

Visiting temples of Navagrahas, especially temples of Mangal (Chowa) is considered an important and efficient remedy to reduce the hardships caused by Mars. However there are only a few temples in India dedicated to Lord Mangal (Lord Kuja).

The most popular temples of Navagrahas are the Navagraha Temples in Tamil Nadu near the town of Kumbakonam. Another set of Navagraha Temples are in Guwahati, Assam. Of the nine Navagraha temples in Tamilnadu, the Vaitheeswaran Koil or Pullirukkuvelur Temple near Sirkazhi is associated to Angakara (Mangal).

To reduce the ill effects of Mangal or Kuja, one can also pray to Lord Muruga or Goddess Durga.

6) Offerings

Offerings to the charity on Tuesdays are also a good remedy to get rid of Kuja Dosha. Some of the objects that can be donated to appease Kujan are red silks, knives or swords, foods made out of red dhal and red stones including corals.

  1. Dear Akhil,

    Chowa Dosham and Mangal Dosha are the same. Please read the above article to learn how to reduce the ill effects of Chowa Dosham

  2. The positioning of mars in positions as mentioned by you from ascendant, moon and venus results in kuja dosha. Simple Mathematics reveals that 73% of horoscopes will have kuja dosha.
    In my opinion, Serious kuja dosha is considered
    -Kuja for Virgo(8th house is moola) and Gemini lagnas(6th and 11th lord)
    - kuja debilitated in cancer
    - kuja for taurus ascendant or moon signs(moola is 12th house,
    For these ascendants mars acts as a malefic,
    can cause marital disharmony if not placed in own house or is not exalted.
    Being yoga karaka for Cancer and Leo ascendants it does not create serious manglik dosha if well placed.
    Same holds for Sagittarius lagna as moola trikona sign falls in 5th house.
    The aspect of a benefic guru also alleviates to a large extent the ill effects of kuja dosha.

    What are your viewpoints on this?
