|Kalasarpa Dosha yields
good results in the later part of lifeDr.
N. Jnanasekaran in conversation with Hemamalini Raghunathan
Man who has a natural tendency to do a lot
of mistakes (sins) is always afraid of the after-effects of
his sins. When it appears as KSD, he is completely shaken.
Rahu-Ketu axis does matter much. Karmic seed enters through

of us love to read about Kalasarpa dosha(KSD). Inspite of lack of
reference in the classical treatises, many kinds of interpretations,
remedial measures etc do make rounds amongst us. Here are quite
convincing explanations, given by the learned Dr. N. Jnanasekaran
about Kalasarpa Dosha. He has got a Ph.D. in the Civil Engineering
field. He has specialized in Structural Engineering. He took up
teaching as his profession. After retirement, Dr. N. Jnanasekaran
(mobile:9443552698; email:njnanasekaran @yahoo.com) wanted to learn
Astrology and passed Diploma in Astrology in 2000. Then onwards, he
kept enriching his knowledge in astrology day-by-day and has been
helping his friends and relatives in this field. A few of his
articles are published in EST also.
Dr. N. Jnanasekaran
took special interest in Kalasarpa
dosha, while analyzing horoscopes. He has also been matching
horoscopes and guiding in the choice of profession.
Why do people
generally fear about Kalasarpa Dosha(KSD)?
Man has freedom of choice in his action. The reward or punishment
for his action is with God. Karmic effect come to a person through
Rahu and Ketu. Man who has a natural tendency to do a lot of
mistakes (sins) is always afraid of the after-effects of his sins.
When it appears as KSD, he is completely shaken.
Classical treatises hardly refer to
KSD. Then how did the evolution of KSD theory happen?
The theory might have been developed from our mythology. Devas and
Asuras got succeeded in getting Nector from Milky Ocean. It was
served to Devas first. One Asura by name Suvarbam managed to get a
share of it. Moon and Sun exposed his act to Lord Vishnu. He chopped
his head off from the body for his act. Since he had overcome death,
by partaking the Amrit, the head was attached to the tail of a snake
and body was attached to the head of the snake. One Asura has become
two persons. They are Rahu and Ketu. They prayed Brahma and got
included with the other seven planets and the concept of Navagrahas
Scientifically, the two meeting points of Suns orbit and Moons
orbit are called Rahu and Ketu. They are also called Shadow planets.
Please explain in detail, with
case-studies, the working of KSD as various types.
Kala Sarpa Dosha (KSD) is said to be caused, when all the planets
are within Rahu and Ketu. It requires further explanation.
There are three parameters in this Dosha
1. Rahu and Ketu
2. Other seven planets and lagna.
3. Direction of movement of planets mentioned in 2 above.
A schematic diagram covering the above three aspects are shown
A person with KSD is experiencing obstacles in life. Progress is
retarded and marriage is delayed. However after 30 years. Dosha
becomes Yoga and his growth is enhanced. Two reasons can be
attributed to the above Dosha.
1. When Rahu or Ketu is with one planet, the planet becomes weak.
It is known that Venus with Rahu affects the family life. When all
the planets are between Rahu and Ketu, it is a sort of hemming
between the malefic. In such a case, the adverse effect may be
2. Karma of a person enters though Ketu and comes out of Rahu with
reward or punishment. The person with KSD experiences much greater
struggle compared to the influence of a single planet.
Four types are to
be considered when deciding KSD
Type 1: All the planets are within Rahu and Ketu, and moving
towards Ketu (Anuloma). This is typical KSD.
Type 2: All the planets are within Rahu and Ketu, and moving
towards Rahu (Viloma).
Type 3: One planet is with Rahu or Ketu and others are
within Rahu and Ketu. Planet with Rahu or Ketu is to be carefully
studied and decided, whether it is KSD or not.
Type 4: More planets are outside Rahu and Ketu. This is not
|Example for Type 1 (Anuloma KSD)
In Taurus, Rahu is at 5° and Lagna is at 7°. Lagna falls
Independence birth chart of India is a typical example of KSD.
At the birth of the country itself, millions of people were killed
and huge amount of compensation had to be paid to Pakistan. India
was in divided condition. Sardar Patel with his bold steps brought
the united India. The problem of hunger and disease had to be
solved. It had to rise up from nothing. Leaders of our country with
great vision and political wisdom brought the image of the country
to the fore-front. Progress in the areas of Agriculture, Education,
Industry, Army, Finance etc. were spectacular. Whenever our
neighboring countries gave pinpricks, they were suitably retaliated.
When the world was facing economic crisis, our country stood the
test, because of the planning pattern of Reserve Bank of India and
the basic culture of our people. This is a typical example of KSD,
in which initial phase has problems and the later phase prosperity.
Another Example for Anuloma KSD
The horoscope of Jawaharlal Nehru is another typical example of KSD.
Though he was born in a rich family and was practising as a leading
lawyer, he sacrificed his personal comforts for the cause of our
country. His wife also passed away in his earlier age. Ultimately,
he became the first Prime Minister of our Country and laid
foundation for the growth of nation. His first half of life was full
of struggles and in the later half, he had a princely life. His
daughter Mrs. Indira Gandhi and grandson Rajiv Gandhi were shot
dead. The influence of KSD penetrates upto a minimum of three
Example for the Type 2 (Viloma KSD)
The popular Lawyer Alladi Krishnaswamy..
All the planets are hemmed-in-between the Nodes, and moving towards
Rahu. He was a famous lawyer and earned huge wealth. He was expert
in his field. His contributions to the Indian constitution are
Many intricacies are involved in KSD. It is suggested that a
horoscope with KSD need to be identified and treated with caution.
|Does KSD have
anything to do with offence done to snakes in the previous birth?
Experience indicates that there is a connection between harming of
snakes and KSD. From my experience, I have seen a rich person owning
30 acres of land and having his residence there. But the area had
many snakes. He used to kill the snakes for his protection. Three
generations were not able to enjoy it. The property was under
litigation for nearly 20 years. Only his grandson and granddaughter
compromised the case and were able to get a fraction of it and enjoy
it now. The grand daughters horoscope in given below:
This is an example of Type 2 in Viloma KSD, in which all the
planets move towards Rahu. Type 2 can be taken as a mild form of
Type 1 (Anuloma).
How about any special influence of RahuKetu
Rahu-Ketu axis does matter much. Karmic seed enters through Ketu
and comes out of Rahu with reward or punishment. For example, if
Rahu is in the 2nd house and Ketu in the 8th house, Karmic effect
enters the 8th house and the effects are seen from the 2nd house and
its trines (namely 2,6,10). It is shown in the figure below:
Similarly KSD effects can be inferred for other RahuKetu
What are the Remedies for KSD?
Kalahasthi is famous for KSD remedy. It is performed by temple
authorities. It is done on all days during Rahu kalam period. It is
- Rudra Abishekam to Lord Shiva is another remedy.
- Abishekam ticket for Milk or Rose water can be got from the
temple office and the devotee can go near the Sanctum Santorum
and have good darshan of Lord Shiva.
- Remedy can be done in the stars of Rahu and Ketu, and Full
Moon and New Moon days.
- A pious life and worship of a deity will ward off many evils.
- Naga Pooja and Naga pratishta can be done at Rameswaram.
Any remedy done according to his ability and done with
sincerity and devotion will yield good results.
