If you are in Tamilnadu, visit Rahu Temple situated in Tamilnadu Tirunageswram and perform milk abishekam in Rahukalam; after performing this, visit Vaideeswaran koyal (Kuja Temple) and then Ketu temple in Peroambare and perform pooja.

7. Naga padaga (hood of serpent) is made of silver and donate (daanama) it to a Brahmin in Lord Siva’s temple after performing Ekadasa Rudrabhishekam to reduce negative effects due to Kalasarpa dosham.

The great astrologer Sri B.V. Raman said about Kala-sarpa yoga: “Kala-sarpa Yoga has its bright shades. It [is said to] makes one industrious, hardworking, aware of one’s own ability- despite mental restlessness. It raises the natives to top positions in their respective fields provided of course other Raja Yogas are present. Rahu-Ketu axis favors rise in mundane life while Ketu-Rahu axis indicates elevation in spiritual matters. It is also found that Kala-sarpa Yoga natives get betrayed by trusted friends and even relatives. Suffering due to developments in life strengthens the mind and mellows one’s outlook. This is a blessing of Kala-sarpa Yoga.” I agree with his opinion that a person seasoned with challenges in life can acquire the grit and effort and strive to overcome the obstacles and attain success and high achievements, as in the case of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. Ordinary persons are generally crushed down by the malefic effects of Kala-sarpa-dosha; I saw many such ordinary persons in my life.






When all the planets

are hemmed between Rahu and Ketu (i.e., the moon’s north node and the moon’s south node), Kaalsarp Yoga is formed. Complete Kaalsarp Yoga is formed only when half of the chart is unoccupied by planets. Even if one planet is outside the Rahu-Ketu Axis, there is no Kaalsarp Yoga.

Before you do any remedies for the Kaalsarp Yoga,  make sure that all planets are between Rahu and Ketu. Even if there is one planet outside the Rahu-Ketu axis the Kaalsarp Yoga does not exist. Do not confuse Kaalsarp Yoga with Nag/Naga Dosha or Karaka Dosha.
