Manglik Dosh: Its impact on married Life.
We all know the significance of marriage and its relation with Vedic astrology in Hinduism. In Hinduism, marriage is not just a bond between two people; it is a bond between two families as well. Therefore, the impact of Vedic astrology plays an important role, whether it’s an arranged or love marriage.
Many people rely on Vedic astrology to predict various important events in their life, and marriage is one of them. Vedic astrology can also predict the future of a marital relationship between two people.
Kundali matching is called matching of horoscopes, which is done to know about the compatibility of two people. In Hinduism, before finalising a prospect, horoscope matching or kundali match making is imperative. Different gunas are matched against each other to foresee if the match is suitable.
It is believed that if the accumulated score is lies between 18 and 24, then the match is fitting. Anything less than this is suggested to be avoided. One of the main things that kundali matching predicts is Mangal dosha.
What is Mangal dosha?
According to Vedic astrology Mangal or Mars is a very fiery planet that is characterised by features such as self-centric, egoistic, highly energetic, etc. A person can be distinguished as a Manglik, if Mangal or Mars is situated in the 1 st , 2 nd , 4 th , 7 th , 8 th , or 12 th house of a person’s horoscope.
According to astrology, a Manglik person suffers from Mangal dosha, which can lead to various problems in their life due to the wrong alignment of Mangal in the horoscope. Every house is specific to a part of our life and showcases the longevity and prosperity of that. If Mangal is situated in any of these houses,
it will only create chaos. For instance, 2 nd house indicates family, 4 th house happiness, 7 th house married life and so on. Therefore, if Mangal resides in the 2 nd house, it is certain that family life will be a problem. Similarly, Mangal in 7 th house is believed to have ill-effects on the person’s married life.
Types of Mangal dosha
According to Vedic astrology, there are only types of Mangal dosha that people suffer from.
1. Anshik Manglik means that the person is suffering from minor Mangal dosha. Low mangal dosha is said to wear-off with age or after28 years of age. The effects can be demolishedwith the help of certain rituals such as the Shanti Pooja.
2. Major Manglik Dosha which is highly negative and believed to have vital impact on married life. It is also believed that it can lead to the death of the significant other, if not treated. Therefore, is highly recommended to ward-off the ill- effects with the help of ‘Kumbh-Vivah’, the only remedy for major Mangliks.
Generally, astrologers say that almost 50%-60% of people have Manglik dosha in their horoscope.There are various conditions according to which Manglik yoga can be cancelled as well. For instance, if Kendra i.e., the 1 st , 4 th , 7 th , 10 th houses and in trikonas i.e., 5 th and 9 th house have benefic planets and in 3 rd , 6 th , 8 th , 11 th house there are malefic, then also the Mangal dosha gets cancelled.
Another saying is that if strong Jupiter and Venus are in the lagna or in the 7 th house, then Mangal dosha gets cancelled too. Also, during kundali matching, if a match scores 24 or more point, then the match is deemed as suitable, regardless of the Mangal dosha.
Impact of Mangal dosha on married life
Mangal dosha can have very serious ill-effects on a marriage. It is also believed that, if two people get married regardless of the presence of mangal dosha and without performing any remedial solution, it can lead to various problems. In worst case scenario, it can also lead to the death of the spouse. Let’s see how Mangal dosh have malefic effects on a marriage based on its position on the house.
1. When Mars is situated in the 1st house:
The 1st house represents the house of the better-half. Thus, it affects the married life of the Manglik. It may also lead to physical and physiological harm which can cause unnecessary distress and even lead to divorce.
2. When Mars is situated in the 2nd house:
Family life is dictated by the 2nd house. The person suffering from Manglik dosha may have a disturbed family life, before and after marriage as well. It also causes delay in marriage and professional life.
3. When Mars is situated in the 4th house:
4th house is related to professional life. Therefore, Mangal dosha can adversely affect professional life as well. Such persons may find it difficult to stick to a certain job and may not be successfully professionally. This will eventually lead to distressing married life.
4. When Mars is situated in the 7th house:
Mangal dosha in this house results in hyper-energy. Such a person might be ill-tempered and will be unable to maintain cordial relations. This kind of person will be very dominating and dictating over his or her partner which will lead to everyday clashes and quarrels in their married life.
5. When Mars is situated in the 12th house:
Manglik individuals with Mangal in the 12th house will have enemies. They may also suffer from mental problems and financial losses.
All these problems combined with marital distress become very difficult for a manglik to lead a normal and happy life. Therefore, Vedic astrology offers remedies which helps in reducing the malefic effects of Mangal dosh leading to marital bliss.
Remedies to ward-off Mangal dosha
1. Recite Hanuman chalisa and fast on every Tuesday
2. Recite Mahamritunjaya mantra
3. Recite Gayatri mantra 108 times everyday
4. Kumbh Vivah
5. Worship Banyan tree and offer milk to the tree or at least water it
All these remedies, if followed diligently will surely help to negate the ill-effects of Mangal dosha. It also helps in the marriage of manglik and non-manglik person. However, one should follow these remedies only after consulting an expert astrologer. Also, as it’s said in the Shreemad Bhagvad Geeta, karma plays a huge role in shaping our life.
