Kaal Sarp Yog, also known as Kaal Sarp Dosh, is one of the most feared astrological combinations that can bring insufferable pain and ill luck in one’s life. Kaal Sarp Yog is formed in one’s Kundli when all seven major planets including, Saturn, Jupiter, Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, and Venus are placed between the two shadow planets, Rahu and Ketu. In Vedic Astrology, Rahu represents the Serpent’s head and Ketu denotes the Serpent’s tail. The presence of this Yoga in one’s Kundali can result in a harmful effect on the native.

The effect of Kaal Sarp Dosh is extremely dangerous and shouldn’t be taken lightly. This Dosha can impact the native financially, professionally, personally, mentally, and emotionally. What’s worse is that the Dosha can nullify the positive effect of the planets which are favorable in a natal chart. But there are effective remedies, which if taken up with diligence, mitigate the negative impact of Kaal Sarp Dosh.


  • Offer Prayers To Snake Gods

The native should offer prayers to Nagaraja and other Snake Gods every Sunday, particularly on Panchami Tithi.


  • Chant ‘Om Namah Shivaya’

One of the simplest and the most effective remedies for Kaal Sarp Dosh is to chant the Panchakshara Mantra or “Om Namah Shivaya” at least 108 times in a day. With the blessings of Lord Shiva, you will have the ability to overcome the difficulties that emerge in life due to Kaal Sarp Yog.


  • Visit a Holy Place

The native should visit pilgrimages, which are considered to bring good to people those suffering from Kaal Sarp Dosha. For example, taking a holy dip in Rameshwaram Temple in Tamil Nadu and offering prayers to ancestors can nullify Pitra Shrap, if it is the reason for Kaal Sarp Dosh in one’s horoscope. Visiting the Mahakaleshwar in Ujjain, Kalahasti in Andhra Pradesh, Trimbakeshwar in Nashik (Maharashtra) and worshipping Lord Shiva can alleviate the negative effects of this Dosha to a great extent.


  • Chant Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra

Chanting Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra at least 108 times a day can reduce the adverse effects of this Dosha.


  • Worship Lord Shiva

Praying to Lord Shiva with Milk and Abhishek can yield good results for an individual suffering from Kaal Sarp Dosha. Shiva Puja must be done in a temple by offering milk, flowers, Bilva Patra, fruits, and plums every Monday. After that, one should donate food and clothes to the poor. Performing Lord Shiva’s Puja on Maha Shivratri can yield maximum results for natives suffering from this Dosha.


  • Chant Gayatri Mantra

The native should chant Gayatri Mantra either 21 times or 108 times in a day. You should wake up early, take a bath and then chant this Mantra facing the sun. It is believed that those who chant Gayatri Mantra religiously will be protected from all adversities in life.


  • Worship Nataraja

Worship Lord Nataraja, the dancing avatar of Lord Shiva, and perform Shanti Puja on Sashti Tithi.


  • Fast on Nag Panchami

Observe a rigorous fast on Nag Panchami.


  • Beej Mantra For Rahu

Recite the Beej Mantra for the malefic planet Rahu 108 times in a day with an Agate (gemstone) in hand. It will reduce the negative effects of Rahu as well.


  • Do Not Hurt Snakes

Make sure that you do not hurt snakes or any other reptile. On every Sashti tithi (date), chant the names of nine snake dynastical heads at least 21 times.


  • Kaal Sarp Dosh Nivaran Puja

Kaal Sarp Dosh Puja is one of the most effective ways to nullify the effect of this Dosha. It is done in temples dedicated to Lord Shiva, especially Kalahasti and Trimbakeshwar temples, by priests. You shall be mighty relieved after this Puja has been performed.
