According to Indian astrology, the position of Mars, i.e. Mangal, can have serious effects on one’s married life. Mars signifies fierce martial nature, anger, and fiery temper. The planet Mars, when placed in an 1,4, 7, 8, 12 house in the horoscope, can cause severe problems in married life.While Indians prefer matching astro charts with the suitable partners before the man and the woman get married, Mangal Dosha is something which is first checked and confirmed with the family priest. This can have a negative influence on their married life. It can cause tension between the partners, accompanied with frequent fight, incapability, tension with in-laws, disharmony and sometimes even untimely death of one of the partners. Thus, people firmly believe in doing everything in their power to eliminate the negative influence of Mangal dosha on their married lives.
Remedies to pacify manglik dosha after marriage:
Fast on Tuesdays: Tuesday is ruled by the planet Mars. Fasting on Tuesdays is a time tested remedy that helps pacify Mars and reduces the malefic influence of Mars on married life. The fast begins on Tuesday morning. One should have only single meal during the day. Reading Hanuman Chalisa in the morning provides the person with cordial environment.
Chanting the Mantras: It is said that the individuals should chant the Navgraha mantra or the Mangal Mantra, especially on Tuesdays. Even chanting the Gayatri Mantra for 108 times a day can produce results.
The Mangal Kavach: The Mangal kavach is a yantra for Mars. A yantra is made of metal and features a numeric configuration. It is a kind of amulet that provides protection from the negative influences of planets. The Mangal Kavach is worn for this very reason.
Offerings: Being a lord of martian nature, offering swords and knives would please Lord Mangal. Even wheat bread, red stones and red silk are offered to the lord to get rid of the mangal dosha.
Prayers: Performing a religious puja at the Navgraha temple can help reducing the influence of mangal dosha on the person’s married life. It is also believed that those who pay obeisance at Hanuman temple on Tuesdays get rid of the Mangal Dosha.
The Coral gemstone: Gemstones have their importance and influence in one’s life based on their sign. Some people recommend gems like Red Coral (Moonga) studded gold ring should be worn on the ring finger of the right hand to battle the negative effect of mangal dosha.
