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.
