Puja Aarambh - Kaal Sarp Dosh Nivaran Mantras
Shlokas from a complete Kaal Sarp Dosh Nivaran Puja, recited by dharamcharya Pundit Rajendra Prasad Kimothi. INFO: Track: Puja Aarambh Album: Kaal Sarp Dosh Nivaaran Puja BUY CD: ABOUT: Once upon a time there was a great war between the gods and the demons. The gods sought the advice of Lord Brahma who told them to churn the oceans in order to obtain the elixir of life that would make them immortal. When this nectar emerged, Lord Vishnu took the form of a female celestial being and promised to distribute the nectar to both the gods and the demons. The gods were made to sit in a row on one side and the demons on the other side. Lord Vishnu, having no intention of distributing this elixir to the demons, started from the gods' side. One demon saw through this trick and came and sat down among the gods. As Lord Vishnu started pouring the nectar in the demon's mouth, the other gods recognized the fact. Sun and Moon, who were sitting beside this demon, cut off his head before he could drink this elixir. However, since some drops had gone down the throat of this demon, even the two severed parts became immortal. The head is called Rahu and the tail part is called Ketu. Both of these are treated as planets in Indian astrology. Since both these planets are demonic in nature, they have the propensity to cause great harm in a person's life. Astrologically, the kaal sarpa dosh occurs when all the planets in a person's horoscope lie between these two planets. The kaal sarp dosh nivaran puja is conducted to mitigate the malefic effects of such a placement. This album contains the complete puja including the nava naag puja.
