Hindu astrology says that Mangal Dosh occurs when Mars comes in the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th , 8th or 12th house in the ascendant chart. People who are born in this condition are manglik. Mangal Dosh is also known as Mangalik or Kuja Dosh. Mangal dosh is not auspicious for the natives.
The 1st house is of Lagna. The 2nd house is Kutumbh. The 4th house is for comfort. The 7th house is of marriage. The 8th house is of age. The 12th house is the ascendant. This dosha is of two types: anshik and ekadhik meaning minor and major effects
Anshik mangal dosha ends after the age of 18. The effects of this type of mangal dosh are very little and can be resolved by any pooja and rituals. People who have this dosha can do a shanti pooja to vanish dosha forever.
India, where spirituality comes with solutions to any problem is yet again here with over the top solution for people who are double or triple manglik or have ekadhik mangal dosha. Kumbh vivah, meaning Mud pot and Wedding. The ritual is very exciting as the person who has this dosha has to marry the mud pot with all rituals just like a Indian Hindu wedding. After the wedding takes place, the pot later is drown in pond without letting anyone know. The pot plays the role of first husband and thus takes all dosha and evil effects on it. Therefore, the actual person is free from manglik dosha and can marry her man now.
Other than mud pot, one can marry banyan or banana tree to free from dosha. Also, the girls can marry Lord Krishna's murthy made up of silver or gold.
