What is Kumbh Vivah and Manglik Dosh and its Types, Benefits, Vidhi and Cost

What is Kumbh Vivah


Are you facing a Delay in Marriage? Are you suffering from Mangalik Dosh? If you have Mangal in your Kundali / Birthchart and if the position of 7th house planets is not suitable, i.e., Mangalik Dosh. To remove Mangalik Dosh from individuals Kundali, we perform Kumbh Vivah. Kumbh Vivah is related to Mangalik Dosh.

What is Mangalik Dosh

If Mangal Grah placed at the position 1, 4, 7, 8, 12 then the sight of Mars falls on the seventh house of the horoscope. The seventh house in Janam Kundali is for the wife or Life partner. The status of the seventh house for marriage is accessed. In Kundali, if Mangal(Mars) is placed at 7th position, then it is considered the Mangalik Dosh. It is not good for marriage or married life. 

Mangalik Dosh is found in the horoscopes of forty percent of people, and after deep study of the potential of Mars in it, it is known whether there is Manglik Yoga or not. Those suffering from the evil effects of Mars (Mangal) to a great extent or whose first marriage is likely to break due to Manglik Dosh or any other yoga are advised to Kumbh Marriage or Kumbh Vivah.

Types of Manglik Dosha:

  • Anshik Manglik Dosh: 

It is also called Little Mangalik, generally ends after 18years of age. It doesn’t affect too much but is still resolved by Shanti Puja. After marriage, these doshas cause health issues, delivery problems, or clashes in one’s family.

  • Maha Manglik Dosh: 

This is very strong and negative Manglik Dosh. If an individual gets married to another with Manglik Dosh, it will indeed affect another person’s life. The perfect solution for Maha Manglik Dosh is Kumbh Vivah. This dosh can be finished by performing Kumbh Vivah. It may give success to both Bride and Groom even if one has Major Manglik Dosh. 

Is Manglik Dosha Permanent?

No, Mangalik Dosh is not permanent. Using Remedies like Kumbh Vivah can cure Mangalik Dosh Kundali permanently. Vedic Astrology believes that certain planets are malefic and that ill-placements (Wrong Position) can damage various aspects of life. Moreover, our Purohit Sangh Astrologer provides the best remedies to cure such Doshas.

What is Kumbh Vivah?

Kumbh combines two Sanskrit words; Kumbh means pot, and Vivah means Wedding/marriage in English. Kumbh Vivah is a marriage ceremony conducted with a Clay Pot filled with water. Kumbh Vivah is a puja performed when an individual has a Manglik Dosh or a Double Manglik Dosh in his Kundali/horoscope. Manglik Dosh is a kind error in Kundali / Patrika, which affects after the wedding.  

While the most commonly found hurdle for the delay in marriage because of Magal Dosh. I suggest you perform Kumbh Vivah Parihar Puja to Remove Mangal Dosh in Janma Kundli and Vivah Yog Balam Puja to remove the delay in marriage caused by other Graha. 

Simple, we can say Kumbh Vivah is a cancellation of 2nd Marriage Yog from your life. In Kumbh Vivah, a Girl marries the earthen pot with all Vedic rituals as if she is married to a boy. Also, after the marriage with Kumbh, the earthen pot should be smashed. 

Kumbh Vivah is only a typical wedding. For example, If a Girl has a Manglik Dosh, then she has to do this ritual. After performing the Kumbh Vivah puja, she can now marry the person and will not be having any further problems after the wedding.

Nakshatra Shanti Puja, Cost, Benefits and Types (Aslesha, Mool, Vishakha Nakshatra Shanti Puja)

Nakshatra Shanti Puja


The Nakshatra Shanti puja or Nakshatra puja is performed to nullify the bad effects of nakshatras prevailing at the time of a person's birth. The puja aims to finish the bad effects of the planets in their main periods ( Mahadasha) or sub-periods ( antardasha) and attain positive results from Lord Nakshatra. Also, to get beneficial results from the same planets, we perform Nakshatra Shanti. As per Vedas, Nakshatra Shanti Puja is essential in our lives. It is conducted once a year for the betterment of one's life. Ashlesha nakshatra Shanti, Vishakha nakshatra Shanti, Mool Nakshatra Shanti, Revati Nakshatra Shanti, Ashwini Nakshatra Shanti, Magha Nakshatra Shanti, and Jyeshta Nakshatra Shanti these are the different types of Gand Mool Nakshatra Shanti. A person born in Ashlesha, Jyeshta, or Revati nakshatra should worship Mercury. 

When an individual takes birth, His destiny is decided by God and is shown by Kundali / Horoscope. Destiny means Birth time, Birthplace, or Birth Nakshatra. When a person is born, the moon and the other planets have their specific zodiac signs in which they are present. Planets have huge effects on the life of the person who is born. 

As per our Hindu Vedic astrology, Nakshatra or Janam Nakshatra have significant effects on almost every phase of our lives, including Health, Wealth, Our Nature. Nakshatra plays a key role in shaping life. It is associated with Mahadasha, due to which it has an intense effect on your destiny. Even the duration of Mahadasha and Antar Dasha is also calculated based on the nakshatra, which signifies where the moon was placed at our birth.

Apart from the planets, there are 27 Nakshatras. They are also having powerful effects on the person's life. Due to the malefic impact of Nakshatras, it causes unhappiness of the person to a very great extent. One can become averse to his good luck when malefic effects of Nakshatras entrap a person to the extent that he/she cannot recover from the impact of the Nakshatra. For the suitable position of planets ( Grah) or to get suitable Kundali Yog, we perform Nakshatra Shanti Puja. 

Gand Mool Nakshatra Shanti

To reduce the bad effects of Gand Mool Nakshatras, we perform Gand Mool Nakshatra Shanti Puja. As per the standard practice by Aarcharya, it is said that Gand Mool Nakshatra Shanti should be done within 27 days after the child's birth.

This Gandh Mool Nakshatras presence is not so good for the child. As per Jyotish Shastra, the child born in these Nakshatras has to face many issues from childhood to old age. He has to face problems related to education, health, carrier, marriage, property, and other aspects of life. Not only the child but also the family members have to face problems along with him. Mool, Jyeshtha, and Ashlesha have more effects as compared to other Nakshatras. 

As per Jyotish Shastras, There are 27 Nakshatras. They are 27 equal division of Lunar path (Moon's path). The path covered by the moon in the year is equally divided into 27 divisions and each sector.

Sawan Vrat Katha 2021 in Hindi - श्रावण सोमवार का महत्त्व, व्रत कथा, विधि,पुजाएँ और त्यौहार 2021।

Sawan Vrat Katha in Hindi


हिन्दू मान्यताओं के अनुसार, माता पार्वतीने भगवान शंकर की श्रावण मासमें आराधना की थी। इसीलिए भगवान शंकर की आराधना करने के लिए इस महीने का चुनाव किया गया है। श्रावण मास का आरम्भ जुलाई महीने के मध्य से लेकर होता है, तथा अगस्त महीने के बीच समाप्त होता है।

श्रावण सोमवार व्रत कथा:

शिव महापुराण के अनुसार, माता पार्वती के मनमें भोलेनाथ शंकर से विवाह करने की इच्छा जागृत हुई, जिसके लिए उन्होंने दीर्घकाल तक तपस्या एवं आराधना की थी। 

जिसके कारण महादेव अतिप्रसन्न हुए और उनसे वरदान माँगने के लिए कहा, माँ पार्वती ने भोलेनाथ शंकर से विवाह करने की इच्छा जताई,और शंकर भगवान उनसे विवाह के बंधन में बंध गए। तब से लेकर आजतक अनेक महिलाएँ एवं पुरुष विवाह की इच्छा पूरी करने के लिए इसी श्रावण मासमें व्रत (अनुष्ठान) करते हैं। यह मास श्रवण नक्षत्रमें आने से इसे श्रावण मास कहा जाता हैं।

त्र्यंबकेश्वर ज्योतिर्लिंगका आध्यात्मिक महत्त्व:

श्री ब्रह्मा-विष्णु-महेश का एकत्रित रूप त्र्यंबकेश्वर में ज्योतिर्लिंग रूप में विद्यमान है। पवित्र त्रिमूर्तिओं का सारतत्व इसी ज्योतिर्लिंगमें है, जो बाकी ११ ज्योतिर्लिंग स्थान पर नहीं पाया जाता।

ऋषि गौतम की तपस्या से देवी गंगा यहाँ प्रकट हुई एवं भगवान भोलेनाथ से त्रिदेव स्वरूप में विराजमान होने की विनती की थी। हर दिन त्र्यंबकेश्वर ज्योतिर्लिंग को गंगा नदी के पवित्र जल से स्नान कराया जाता है। 

यहाँ शैव परंपरा के अनुसार त्रिकाल पूजा की जाती है। त्र्यंबकेश्वर एकमात्र ऐसा पवित्र स्थान है जहाँ हजारो साल से त्रिकाल पूजा होती आ रही है।

श्रावण मासमें शिव मन्त्र का जाप:

  • पुरे श्रावण मासमें भक्तों द्वारा भोलेनाथ को प्रसन्न करने के लिए मन्त्रोंका जाप किया जाता है। मन्त्र जाप के लिए रुद्राक्ष की माला का प्रयोग किया जाता है। रुद्राक्ष भगवान शंकर को अतिप्रिय होने से जाप में लाभ होता है।
  • कुछ भक्त महामृत्युंजय मन्त्र का जाप करते है जो इस प्रकार है - "ॐ त्र्यम्बकम यजामहे सुगन्धिम पुष्टिवर्धनम उर्वारुकमिव बन्धनान मृत्योर्मुक्षीयमामृतात।"

  • इस प्रकार मन्त्रजाप पुरे होने पर भक्तोंद्वारा पूजा-पाठ किया जाता है, जिससे उनकी मनोकामना फलीभूत हो। इसे उद्यापन कहा जाता है, जो रुद्राभिषेक कराने से सम्पन्न होता है, ऐसी प्राचीन मान्यता है।

त्र्यंबकेश्वर में होने वाला श्रावण त्यौहार:

श्रावण के हर सोमवार को त्र्यंबकेश्वर में सामूहिक पूजा-पाठ एवं भक्तों का मेला लगा हुआ रहता है। इस पुरे महीने यहाँ लाखों श्रद्धालुओं का आवागमन चलता है, किन्तु यहाँ विशेष तौर पर श्रावण मासके हर सोमवार को अनगिनत श्रधालुओं की भीड़ होती है। हजारो सालोंसे ऐसा कहा जाता आ रहा है की श्रावण के महीने में त्र्यंबकेश्वर के पास स्थित ब्रह्मगिरि पर्वत की प्रदक्षिणा अवश्य की जानी चाहिए। प्रदक्षिणा यह भक्तों द्वारा प्रदर्शित भोलेनाथ के प्रति सम्पूर्ण समर्पण का प्रतिक है।  

ब्रह्मगिरि पर्वत को की जानेवाली यह प्रदक्षिणा श्रावण महीने के हर सोमवार की जाती है क्यूंकि प्राचीन काल से यह मान्यता रही है की सोमवार का दिन भगवान शंकर को समर्पित है। प्रदक्षिणा के दौरान महिलाओं ने कीमती जेवर या सामान साथ न रखे ऐसी सलाह दी जाती है। प्रदक्षिणा के रास्ते में ऋषि गौतम एवं उनकी पत्नी की स्मृति के रूपमे एक मंदिर का निर्माण भी किया गया है। त्र्यंबकेश्वर क्षेत्र में श्रद्धालुओं की भीड़ को नियंत्रण में रखने के लिए पुलिस प्रशासन सज्ज रहता है।

श्रावण सोमवार प्रदक्षिणा का मार्ग:

ब्रह्मगिरि की प्रदक्षिणा करते समय दो तरह के मार्ग लिए जाते है, एक छोटा मार्ग होता है जो २० किमी का है तथा दूसरा लम्बा एवं ४० किमी का है।

श्रावण मासके पहले सोमवार को त्र्यंबकेश्वर ज्योतिर्लिंग की विशेष पूजा का आरम्भ होता है, जो ताम्रपत्रधारी गुरूजी द्वारा सम्पन्न होता है। इस पूजा को रूद्राभिषेकादि से पूर्ण करने के पश्चात मंदिर को दर्शन के लिए खुला किया जाता है। मंदिर को ऐसे विशेष दिनों में ही केवल रात्रि खुला रखने की परंपरा है। क़रीबन्द ४ से ५ लाख भक्त श्रावण के महीने में त्र्यंबकेश्वर आते है जिनमेंसे ३ से ३.५ लाख भक्त ब्रह्मगिरि पर्वत को प्रदक्षिणा करते है। प्रदक्षिणा के दौरान भक्तों को अनेक बार बारिश एवं फिसलन का खतरा उठाना पड़ता है पर भक्तों की भगवान त्र्यंबकेश्वर के प्रति आस्था के कारण उन्हें तकलीफ महसूस नहीं होती। इन तकलीफों से लड़ने के हेतु कुछ संस्थाएँ मुफ़्त में मेडिकल सुविधाओं का आयोजन कराती है। इसी दौरान कुछ सामाजिक संस्थाएँ, समूह एवं मददग़ार नागरिक भक्तोंको पानी की बोतल, भोजन एवं नाश्ता मुफ़्त में उपलब्ध कराते है।   

ऐसी मान्यता है की प्रदक्षिणा करने से भक्तोंके पाप नष्ट हो जाता है जिसके बाद भक्त पुण्यवान हो जाते है।

क्यों खास है तीसरा श्रावण सोमवार

ऐसा कहा जाता है की जो भक्त सच्ची श्रद्धा से ५ साल श्रावण मासमें आनेवाले हर तीसरे सोमवार को ब्रह्मगिरि की प्रदक्षिणा करता है वह मोक्ष एवं पुण्य का अधिकारी हो जाता है। इसीलिए त्र्यंबकेश्वर में श्रावण महीने के तीसरे सोमवार को ब्रह्मगिरि पर्वत की प्रदक्षिणा की जाती है, जिस कारण यहाँ भक्तों का जमावड़ा देखते ही बनता है। 

छोटी प्रदक्षिणा २० किमी अंतर की होती है जिसे ६ से ७ घंटो में पूरा किया जाता है, ४० किमी लम्बी प्रदक्षिणा पूरी करने के लिए १२ से १३ घण्टे का समय लगता है। बड़ी प्रदक्षिणा के दौरान ऐसे भक्त का साथ अवश्य होना जरुरी है जिसे प्रदक्षिणा का अचूक मार्ग एवं अनुभव हो।  

छोटी प्रदक्षिणा की शुरुआत पंचलिंग-ब्रह्मगिरि-लग्न, स्तम्भ-निल पर्वत से की जाती है तथा लम्बी प्रदक्षिणा की शुरुआत हरिहर गढ़-वेताल-पुराना सरोवर कुण्ड-रडकुंडी घात-लेकुरवाली देवी मंदिर से होकर त्र्यंबकेश्वरको समाप्त होती है। इस प्रदक्षिणा के दौरान भक्त बड़े ही उत्साह के साथ “बम भोले बम” तथा “हर हर गंगे” का नारा लगाते है।

यहाँ आने के लिए एमटीडीसी की ओरसे नासिक से अनेक बस आती है। करीब ४०० बस भक्तों की सुविधा के लिए श्रावण महीने में उपलब्ध कराई जाती है। भक्तों को परेशानी ना हो इसीलिए जगह-जगह पर रुकने हेतु स्टॉप का निर्माण किया जाता है। जो भक्त अपनी कार या वाहन से आना चाहते है उन्हें मुख्य मंदिर से ५ या ६ किमी पहले उतरना होता है, क्युकि भक्तों भीड़ में वाहन को पार्क करने में असुविधा होती है।

त्र्यंबकेश्वर में भक्तों को ठहरने के लिए आवास:

यहाँ ठहरने हेतु भक्तों की जरुरत के लिए अनेक सुविधा है जैसे भक्त निवास, गेस्ट हाऊस, लॉज, डॉरमिटरी इत्यादि।

Since this event occurred during the month of Shravan, Lord Shiva is worshipped, and Shiv Abhishek popularly performs by many devotees, especially during this month. It is believed that worshipping Lord Shiva in Shravan Maas is 108 times more powerful than praying at any other time of the year. For many Hindus, Shravan is a fasting month. They will fast every Monday to Lord Shiva and every Tuesday to the Goddess Parvati. Devotees pray to Lord Shiva during Shravan for luck, success, and happiness.

Nag Panchmi Puja 2021:

One of the most important festivals of Sharvan Maas is Nag Panchami. We worship the Snake gods and seek their blessings to protect our family from threats. In the month of Shravan, Snakes often come out of their burrows as burrows get with water because of the rain. We offer milk to God Snake. Symbolically, offering milk to snakes suggests that one must learn to be in harmony with nature. This year 2021, the festival of Nag Panchami is falling on 13th August 2021. 

Performing Kaal Sarp Puja on the day of Nag Panchami will be more effective. Like Manglik Dosh and Pitru Dosh in Astrology, Kaal Sarp Yoga is placed in the category of inauspicious Yoga. It has been said about Kaal Sarp Dosh that who is having Kaal Sarp Yog the Kundali / Birthchart, has to face challenges again and again. This dosha is formed when all planets come in between Rahu and Ketu in Kundali / Patrika. 

What is Kaal Sarp Dosh:

If all significant planets are placed between Rahu and Ketu in one’s birth chart, it is called Kaal Sarp Yog. Kaal Sarp Dosh is often a result of one’s past deeds or karma. It may occur if the person has harmed a Snake in the present or the previous life. It is suggested that those who are having Kaal Sarp Yog Should regularly do Jal Abhishek of Lord Shiva in the month of Sharvan. As the Sharvan is Lord shivas month, it will be beneficial to reduce Kaal Sarp Yog.  

As per Vedic Astrology, experts suggest so many remedies reduce Kaal Sarp Yoga, but Nag Panchami is the suitable day to remove Kaal Sarp Dosh. By doing Rudra Abhishek on the day of Nag Panchami, the person can remove the Kaal Sarp Dosh. Chant the Panchakshari Mantra, i.e., Om Namah Shivay, or perform Mahamrityunjay Mantra Jaap at least 108 times on Nag Panchami, who is having Kaal Sarp Dosh.
