GHOST – Bhoot

Just by talking about ghosts, people easily picturize the deadly look of ghosts and fear surrounds. In our day-to-day lives we keep hearing about ghosts, their stories, etc. Some people even claim to have seen ghosts. And there are some who consider ghosts to be a rumor.

There are many ghost-related beliefs/rumors that are still prevalent in our society. Ghosts are mentioned in almost every religion of the world.

1] In almost every religious text, there is a mention about ghosts/spirits. The question then arises that if there are ghosts really than why can’t people see them or why only a few can see them? According to religious scriptures, a human body is made up of five elements – earth, water, air, sky and fire. In a human body the amount of earth is maximum as compared to other elements, which is why a human is visible.

While in ghosts, the element of air is maximum and since it is not possible to see air, ghosts are not visible.

2] According to the Scriptures, ghost (Bhoot) means the past. In other words, the time or phase between a human body’s death and when the new baby is born is called ghost time. This is because the spirits of people stay stuck here with no body.

3] The soul of a body after the body’s death till the time it’s cremated, the state of the soul is called Pret.

4] After a human’s death, when the body is cremated, the soul is not free. To free the souls, one keeps doing shradh and other rituals in memory of the gone ones. When this ceremony is missed, souls don’t get free and keeps roaming around.

5] Ghosts lives in dark and silent areas, generally away from human habitats. They reside in empty houses, trees, broken forts, etc.

6] We often hear that there is an effect of ghosts on someone. Not everyone gets captured by ghosts. Those on who ghosts stick have certain yogs in their kundali. Also, those people who have moon in the lower position of their kundali, these people are mostly affected by ghosts.

7] A person whose body has been captured by a ghost, his eyes appears to be red, stable and half-opened always. Body temperature is higher than normal. His nature is full of anger, stubbornness and aggression. He always smells of sweat.

8] There are many energies that surround us always, but we can’t see them. These invisible powers are either negative or positive. Only a few people are able to see or feel them.

9] According to astrology, every human is divided into three qualities – Manushya Gan, Dev Gan and Rakshas Gan.

10] People of Manushya and Dev Gana are similar. And people with Rakshas Gan are different and possess a quality through which they can immediately identify any negative energy floating around. These people are bold and are not afraid of any situation.

Importance of Prasad in Hinduism

Importance of Prasad in Hinduism

Prasad and Charanamrit

The word ‘prasad’ means that which gives peace. During any form of worship, ritual or ceremony, Hindus offer some items of food to the Lord. Puja is done with Bael leaves, flowers, Tulasi (Basil plant), Vibhuti and these are given as Prasada from the Lord.

Prasada is that which gives peace. Prasada is the sacred food offering of the Lord. During Kirtans (Singing hymns), worship, Puja, Havan and Arati, the devotee offers sweet rice, fruits, jaggery, milk, coconut, plantain and such other articles to the Lord, according to his ability. After offering them to the Lord, they are shared between the members of the house or the Bhaktas (devotees) in a temple.

Water, flowers, rice, etc., are offered to the Lord in worship. This denotes that the Lord is pleased with even the smallest offering. What is wanted is the heart of the devotee. The Lord says in the Gita

:”Patram Pushpam Phalam Toyam Yo Me Bhaktya Prayacchati;
Tadaham Bhaktyupahritamasanami Prayatatmanah”

Whoever offers a leaf, a flower, a fruit or even water with devotion, that I accept, offered as it is with a loving heart”.

It is not necessary that one should offer gold, silver and costly dress to the Lord. The devotee offers these according to his ability and position in life, thereby denoting that the whole wealth of the world belongs to the Lord. A rich man offers costly things to the Lord. He feeds the poor and serves the sick, seeing the Lord in his fellow-beings.

The mental Bhava (attitude) of the devotee offering Bhog to the Lord has very great effect. If an ardent devotee of the Lord offers anything to the Lord, that Prasada, if taken, would bring very great change even in the minds of atheists. The Grace of the Lord descends through Prasada.

If the food is offered with an yearning heart, sometimes, the Lord takes that food assuming a physical form. In other cases, the Lord enjoys the subtle essence of the food offered, and the food remains as it is in the shape of Prasada. While feeding Mahatmas and the poor people, that which is left behind is taken as Prasada. When a sacrifice is performed, the participants share the Prasada which bestows the blessings of the gods. When Dasaratha performed Putrakameshti (a sacrifice performed wishing for a son), he got a vessel full of sweetened rice that he gave to his queens, by taking which they became pregnant.


A special form of prasad is the Charanamrit, which is the water or milk used to wash the feet of the idol, or of a holy saint. The Charanamrit has tremendous powers. It can change the outlook of a devotee entirely. It has the power to cure diseases. There are cases where it brought back life to the dead. Charanamrit is a tonic or medicine for misery, pain and anxiety. Intense faith is the all-important necessity for taking it. Without faith it brings very little benefit. The benefits of Prasada and Charanamrita are beyond description. They have the power to change entirely the outlook of a man’s life. Prasada destroys all pains and sins. It is an antidote for misery, pain and anxiety. Faith is the important factor in testing the accuracy of this statement. For faithless persons, it brings very little effect.

Those who are brought up in modern education and culture have forgotten all about the glory of Prasada. Many Western educated persons do not attach any importance to Prasada when they get it from Mahatmas. This is a serious mistake. Prasada is a great purifier. Live for a week in Vrindavana or Ayodhya or Varanasi or Pandharpur. You will realise the glory and the miraculous effects of Prasada. Many incurable diseases are cured. Many sincere aspirants get wonderful spiritual experiences from mere Prasada alone. Prasada is a panacea. Prasada is a spiritual elixir. Prasada is the Grace of the Lord. Prasada is a cure-all and an ideal pick-me-up. Prasada is an embodiment of Sakti. Prasada is Divinity in manifestation. Prasada energises, vivifies, invigorates and infuses devotion. It should be taken with great faith.

The prasad of the Lord is very sacred and purifying. If it is taken with faith and devotion, it brings miraculous results to the devotee.

While feeding Mahatmas, Sannyasins and the poor, that which is left over is also taken as prasad, because in feeding them, we feel that we are feeding God Himself.

When a ceremony is performed all the devotees should share the prasad and thus receive the blessings of the Deities. Prasad is extremely sacred. There is no restriction of any kind in taking prasad. Time, place or condition does not affect one. Prasad is all purifying.. Prasada is the most sacred object for a devotee. One should consider himself lucky to take the Prasada, and there is no restriction of any kind in taking Prasada. Prasada is all purifying.

Importance of Applying Tilak

Importance of Applying Tilak

The tilak invokes a feeling of sanctity in the wearer and others. It is recognised as a religious mark. Its form and colour vary according to one’s caste, religious sect or the form of the Lord worshipped.

In earlier times, the four castes (based on varna or colour) – Brahmana,Kshatriya, Vaishya and Sudra – applied marks differently. The brahmin applied a white chandan mark signifying purity, as his profession was of a priestly or academic nature. The kshatriya applied a red kumkum mark signifying valour as he belonged to warrior races. The vaishya wore a yellow kesar or turmeric mark signifying prosperity as he was a businessman or trader devoted to creation of wealth. The sudra applied a black bhasma, kasturi or charcoal mark signifying service as he supported the work of the other three divisions. Also Vishnu worshippers apply a chandan tilak of the shape of “U”, Shiva worshippers a tripundra (of the shape of “º”) of bhasma, Devi worshippers a red dot of kumkum and so on). The tilak cover the spot between the eyebrows, which is the seat of memory and thinking. It is known as the Aajna Chakra in the language of Yoga.

The tilak is applied with the prayer – “May I remember the Lord. May this pious feeling pervade all my activities. May I be righteous in my deeds.” Even when we temporarily forget this prayerful attitude the mark on another reminds us of our resolve. The tilak is thus a blessing of the Lord and a protection against wrong tendencies and forces.

The entire body emanates energy in the form of electromagnetic waves – the forehead and the subtle spot between the eyebrows especially so. That is why worry generates heat and causes a headache. The tilak and pottu cools the forehead, protects us and prevents energy loss. sometimes the entire forehead is covered with chandan or bhasma. Using plastic reusable “stick bindis” is not very beneficial, even though it serves the purpose of decoration.

What is Reiki?


Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well being. Many have reported miraculous results.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. This ability is passed on during an “attunement” given by a Reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy” to improve one’s health and enhance the quality of life.

Its use is not dependent on one’s intellectual capacity or spiritual development and therefore is available to everyone. It has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds.

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. Because Reiki comes from God, many people find that using Reiki puts them more in touch with the experience of their religion rather than having only an intellectual concept of it.

Sixteen Hindu Sanskars


Sixteen Hindu Sanskars

The way Hindu lives ,is wrapped around various rites called Sanskar. The Sanskar is said to be helping for achieving spiritual nourishment, peace of mind and ultimately moksha. Sansar give a spiritual touch to the important events at different stages of a Hindu life – right from pre-birth to post-death.

These sixteen Sanskar are as follows :-

Garbhadana. All sources recognize this as the first Sanskar. This is the enthusiastic prayer for a child. This is done for fulfillment of parental duty to continue the race. This sanskar is limited to the family members. This is performed by husband.


This second Sanskar is performed during the third or the fourth month of pregnancy. The significance of this Sanskar is to invoke divine and good qualities in the chield. According to our ancient Shastras, this ritual is performed in the desire for a male child. The reason for expecting male child is believed to be in the belief that it is the male child who carries the Vansha forward. Like the first Sanskar i.e. Garbhadhan, Punsavana Sanskar is also restricted to the family members.


This Sanskar is performed during the seventh month of pregnancy and prayers are offered for the healthy physical and mental growth of the child. The other importance of this Sankar is to free the expectant mother free from worries since the last 3 months are very difficult for pregnant woman- both physically and mentally. On the day of this Sanskar, the expectant mother gets food of her desire.Only women are invited for this ritual and the gathering is kept small The husband performs this ritual.


This Sanskar is performed at the birth of a child as a welcome sign to the new born child into the family.


This Sanskar is performed on the tenth , eleventh or twelth day with recitation of Mantras. The baby child gets name on completion of this Sankar.


This Sanskar is performed when the child is taken out of the home for the first time.The reason for this Sanskar is to show obedience to the sun, moon, fire, wind etc, -the Panchmahabhut .This is supposed to enhance the age and physical and mental development of the child.


This Sanskar is performed on sixth month , when the child gets solid food for the first time. Mantras recited and oblations are offered to the various deities.


This Sanskar is shaving the head of child. This is done in first of third year of the child. The body of the child is protected and harmonized by these ceremony. Its also known as Mundan ceremony. Brahmins chant Mantras for a healthy, long life of the child. This Sanskar is restricted to the family level. During this Sanskar, the father feeds honey to the baby and pierces the baby’s ear. This ear piercing is supposed to enhance the memory of the child .



This Sanskar is performed in the firth or the seventh year or at the end of the first year with Chudkaram Sanskar.


This is the most important Sanskar , which marks the beginning of the next stage of life Youth. The word Upanayana means bringing near. The child is bought near to the Guru. This Sanskar is second birth for child – A spiritual birth. This Sanskar is performed during six to nine years of child.


This Sanskar is done along with Upanayana. The setting up with the Sacred thread entitles the child to study the Vedas and participate in Vedic functions.The child commences his journey on the road to spiritual life. This is contrasted with a life of eating, sleeping and procreating, which kinds of life animals also live.The child is sent to Gurukul.


This Sanskar is performed before entering the grahstha ashram or the life of a householder. This is performed at the end of child’s study in Gurukul. The student has to take the permission of his guru before entering the ashram. After this the guru gives him important guidelines or tips for the grahstha ashram.


This sanskar is entry into the second Ashram. The life as individual family begins. Entering this stage of life, man has to take on his duties and has to pay spiritual debts by sacrifice , by procreating children and study. The bride and groom walks around Agni hand in hand. The bride sacrifices grains in the fire and chants mantras.


Man  withdraws himself from all worldly activities, retires into the forest and prepares himself for taking sanyas. This is the life of a Vanprastha.


A  sanyasi renounces the world and leads a life of study and meditation by living on alms.


When death is imminent, a small piece of gold, tulsi leaf and drops of Ganga water are put in the mouth of the person on the death bed. The body is laid on the ground with the head towards the north. The eldest son generally performs the last rites before which he takes a purificatory bath amidst the chanting of mantras. The dead body is washed, perfumed and wrapped in a new white cloth and decked with flowers.
For ten days following death, food is not prepared at home and relatives and friends take the responsibility of getting food for the family.

Specialty of Indian Astrology

Specialty of Indian Astrology

There are several differences between western and Hindu methods. Western astrologers follow a system of presenting the planets as they are in the sky, which is known as sayana system. Hindu astrologers follow nirayana system wherein the shift of the earth is taken off called ayanamsha.

Vimshottari dasa that treats the human life span to 120 years is most reliable one and is also widely followed.

Hindu astrology has well developed methods for matching charts for marriage/business partnership. Election astrology (muhurta) is well developed in Hindu astrology by study of stellar behavior. In western system, the matching is done merely by characteristics of signs like watery, fiery, etc, and muturta is done with reference to significators of the natal chart.

In western system the annual chart used to find the results of  a year from birth day to next birth day is merely a simple mathematical progression of natal chart.  But, the Hindu system uses different charts as on birth day, a chart is made for the time when Sun enter the same position as in the natal chart and position of other planets are found out.  Even a dasha system is used.

When it comes to mundane charts, in western world charts are made for a new year which eventually begins at zero hours  standard time of a country which is  in no way related to planetary movement.

Hindus have a good tool box and the Westerner’s is still primitive.  Astrologer should know when and how to use them.

Kumbh Vivah – An Indian Ritual For Manglik Dosh


Kumbh Vivah is a process which is used when a human has a Manglik or Double Manglik Dosh in his horoscope. Mangalik Dosh is a kind of error in horoscope which effects after the wedding only.Mangal Dosh is a dosh which shows its true colors after the wedding.

Manglik Dosh is of two types:

A) Anshik Manglik( Little Manglik)
This dosh generally ends after 18 years of age and can also be resolved by Puja or some rituals. This doesn’t effects too much but still suggested that Shanti puja must be performed so that it may vanish for ever.

Few examples of Anshik Manglik Dosh are :

A)After wedding major health issues.
B)Small disputes between bride and groom.
C)Delivery issues of baby.
D)Tensions in family.

B) Major Manglik Dosh:
This is highly negative in nature and has some deadly impacts on married life.If a human gets married to another with Manglik dosh then the Manglik Dosh of partner will surely effect other’s life.It has a single solution which is known as “Kumbh Vivah”. This is the only way which can end this Dosh and may give prosperity to both Bride and Groom even if one has Major Manglik Dosh.

Few examples of Major Manglik Dosh are:

A) Serious Relationship Issues after wedding.
B) Death of husband.
C) Death of Wife.
D)Major Accident.
E)Major Disease.

Kumbh Vivah is just like a normal wedding. For example if a girl has a Manglik Dosh then she has to perform this ritual. Everything would be like the real wedding. Girl has to wear the wedding dress and jewelery along with a thread. Parents do “Kanya Daan” and “Phere” are also taken with the Mud pot. Priest has to be invited to chant the Mantra’s and end up everything like a real human wedding. Later on the girl has to change the clothes, remove the thread and that thread is tied over the Mud pot and the pot later on is drown in some river or pond without letting some one know. Once the Ritual is done the girl is out of Manglik Dosh and she can now merry to the actual person and will not be having any further issues after wedding.Her husband is now safe from her Mangal Dosh.

Pot here plays the role of first husband of girl and hence it is a non living thing so as per the Indian Mythology this becomes null and void and the wedding with the Human is considered as her first wedding. Pot has taken all the Dosh or troubles of the Girl and hence the Mangal will not effect the other person anymore.

This Ritual is amazing in its own and I have seen many people who has got the benefit out of it.


Kumbh Vivah is done in order to minimize the ill effect of Mars. It is done when a person is manglik that is if a person has his/her Mars (Mangal) in 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th house of birth chart. If the Pandit has suggested you Kumbh Vivah it means you are Manglik & the guy is non- manglik. It is suggested that a manglik person should get married to a manglik spouse only, otherwise the non- manglik partner can suffer bad health, deterioration, ill fate, money loss or even death after marriage.

But there are certain Upayas (remedies) by which you can reduce the ill effects of Manglik Dosha. But remember there is no remedy in this universe by which one can eliminate the bad effects completely. All you can do is reduce them.

In Kumbh Vivah, the person performing this ritual is supposed to marry a ‘Mitti ka Ghada’ (clay pot)’& then later break it into pieces. It is believed that you married a pot, it becomes your spouse (temporarily) & later it died (as you have broken it). Once it has been done the bad effects of Manglik Dosha are reduced & now you can marry another person. Similarly there is Pipal Vivah & other so many other remedies for Mangal Dosha. For more info, you can Google “Kumbha Vivah”.

More Information on Mangalik Dosha

The term ‘Manglik’ is looked upon with fear and a bit of exclusion in Hindu society. Usually people who have the Mangal dosha in their horoscope are called Manglik. A person who is born under the influence of the planet Mars can be called a Manglik. For such people Mars is the ruling planet. Now we all know that Mars or Mangal is the planet of war. Thus, Mangal dosha is often associated with marital disharmony. It is also believed that if a normal person marries a Manglik, he or she may die very soon. Mangliks have marriage problems because their choice of spouse becomes limited. The concept of Mangal dosha is shrouded in misinformation and blind faith. That is why it is hard to decipher the truth from myths and maliciously evil customs. Here are some things that every Manglik person must know so that they are not lead astray by myths and rituals.

 Why do Mangliks have marriage problems?

Mars is a planet that likes to stay alone, and thus it quarrels with whoever is closest to it. That is why, your ruling planet cannot stand your partner for long until and unless your horoscopes are compatible.

  Every Manglik’s spouse doesn’t die

Even in Mangal dosha, there are degrees. If you are ‘purna’ Manglik then the influence of Mars is very strong on you. If you are ‘vakri’ Manglik then Mars has a slant influence on your life. In most cases, the influence of this dosha is minor and does not lead to the death of your spouse.

Age is a factor

For some people, the influence of Mars is valid only till a certain age. If they get married after this age, problems are not expected to creep up in their marital life. A late marriage is an option that many people opt for these days, so it is no big deal.

 Kumbh Vivah

Even if you are a purna Manglik, your dosha can be remedied by the means of kumbh vivah. In this ritual, the person afflicted by Mangal dosha is first married to a banana or banyan tree. You can also wed a silver or gold statue of lord Krishna if you are girl. This negates the dosha from the person’s horoscope.

Multiple Mangliks

Some people are double or triple Mangliks. The influence of Mars is so strong on their lives that even if the remarry twice or thrice their spouse is destined to die. In such cases the kumbh vivah has to be conducted twice or thrice to remedy the dosha.You can choose to get marrie dto person who is also a double or triple Manglik.

Good Deeds

Hinduism lays great emphasis on good deeds. The goodness of your soul and your inner kindness can remedy a number of dosha in your horoscope. So if you are a honest and good soul, you will not suffer too much for your doshas.

If you are a Manglik, take it in your stride. It is not the end of world because you are what you believe you are.


More Information on Mangalik Dosha


1. Much ado about ‘Manglik Dosha’

Around 8000 Indians have signed up for the Mars One Mission which promises to establish a colony on Mars and migrate these aspirants there. So, what’s with our fixation with the planet Mars, or ‘Mangal’ as we famously know it…and how is it related to our married life? Let’s explore…
2. The dogma called ‘Manglik’

The term Manglik has occupied us as a society. So much so that matrimonials have created a special section for those seeking Manglik brides and grooms. It has the capability of giving sleepless nights and restless days to the parents of those with manglik dosha in their horoscope. It brings along a painful pursuit of astrologers leading to a vicious circle of rituals and rundown of faith.
3. What’s the big deal?

Mars is the planet of war and holds a special place in astrology. Manglik or Kuja dosha is considered as one of the most dreaded doshas in the horoscope and is one of the major deciding factors in Hindu marriages.
4. Who is a ‘Manglik’?

A person with Manglik dosha is simply one who has a strong presence of the planet Mars in their birth chart. Mangal dosha or Kuja dosha or Chovva dosham is the combination in the birth chart or horoscope where Mars or Mangal occupies the 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th, or 12th house.
5. Side-effects of being ‘Manglik’

A manglik marrying a non-manglik is considered disastrous which can even lead to death of one’s partner. This is one of the main reasons why many mangliks marry late – it takes them too long to find their perfect match. The theory of Mangal dosha is cloaked in half truths and blind faith. We need to decipher the truth from myths and evil customs.
6. Common perceptions about ‘Mangliks’

Mangliks are perceived to be polite, courageous, strong, sharp, focused, disciplined and have a fiery temperament. They are thought to emanate strong and powerful vibrations. Based on this principal, it is said that only another mangalik will be able cope better with the strong nature of their partner.
7. Common perceptions about Manglik dosha

Apart from the common belief that Manglik Dosha is a big bottle neck when it comes to marriage, there are other ideas related to it. One of them being that a Manglik person should marry only after 28 years because by that time the horrific effects of Mangal have condensed.
8. Historically speaking…

According to a research study by Jyotish Maharishi SP Gaur, there isn’t any significant mention of Manglisk Dosha in classical books. He concludes that Manglik Dosha is of subsequent origin. S.P Gaur supports his argument be stating that even if we refer to Ramayan, Mahabharat or Puranas, nowhere matching of charts before marriage was described as a condition for an arranged marriage, only auspicious Muhurta for marriage was given due importance.
9. Why Manglik Dosh applies only to Hindus?

Astrology is a science, which is applicable to all the animated and non animated objects. However, horoscope matching to determine doshas or compatibility is not a familiar practice in Western countries, but still there are huge numbers of successful marriages. Thus, it is safe to say that Manglik Dosh is connected to religion rather than astrology and is popular only with Hindus.
10. Manglik Myths

Myth: Born on Tuesday? You are definitely a Manglik! Many people misinterpret that if you were born on a Mangalvaar (Tuesday), you are a Manglik. However, this is not true.
11. Manglik Myths

Myth: Marry a tree and then your spouse. The concept behind this act is that all the alleged problems related to being a Manglik are attached to the first marriage only.
12. Manglik Myths

Myth: The marriage will end in a divorce. The success of any marriage depends on compatibility and understanding. Being a Manglik is not going to determine a marriage’s prolonged existence.
13. Manglik Myths

Myth: You can be a double, triple or quadrant Manglik. There are no such terms in Vedic astrology.
14. Kinds of Mangliks

Mangliks are of two kinds: Anshik (slightly) Manglik and Sampuurn (complete) Manglik. It is believed that an Anshik Mangalik can marry a Manglik as well as a non-Manglik however, a manglik should marry only a manglik.

A lot of devotees offer Sindoor (vermilion) to Lord Hanuman as he is considered as the ruler of Mars. Some people are also advised to throw Masoor lentils and Honey in running water or sleep on deer skin. Eating and drinking in silver utensils is also one of the remedies.
17. Manglik Dosha remedies

Reciting Gayatri Mantra, Hanuman Chalisa or Mahamrityunjaya mantra is said to help Mangliks. There are other Holy texts such as Angark Stotram and Bhoom Mangal Stotram that are recommended by many astrologers.

Some of the other well-known remedies include – worshipping Kesariya Ganapati (orange statue of Lord Ganesha), donating red clothes to the workers , keeping ivory at home and worshipping banyan tree with milk.
19. Is ‘Manglik Dosha’ worth the hullabaloo?

There is a lot more about Mangal Dosh than just its placement in 5 houses. It would be wise to think rationally and not fall prey to someone else’s ambitions in the name of religion.
