The Art of Kundali Matching originated in the Vedic Ages and is followed to date, even in
today’s modern age. The study of Kundali became more prominent when the Janam kundali
prediction of Prince Siddhartha came to be true. An astrologer studied the details surrounding his
birth like the date, time, and place of birth and related it with the planetary positions before
making his predictions. After a thorough study, he predicted that Prince Siddhartha would grow
up to be an emperor or a spiritual leader. The predictions came to be true when the Prince went
on to be Lord Buddha, as we all know him today. Even in Today’s modern era, Kundali
Matching is given prominence in both arranged and love marriages to check compatibility levels
as well as remove the effect of certain negative doshas and yogas which pose as obstacles in the
marriage of the bride and the groom. In this article, we will read about the Gand Mool Nakshatra
Dosha, its formation, effects, and remedies.
Formation of the Gand Mool Dosha:
The Gand Mool Nakshatra Dosha is formed when during the time of the birth of an individual,
the Moon positions itself under the six major constellations (Nakshatras) which are collectively
known as the Gand Mool Nakshatras. The Gand Mool Nakshatra Dosha is considered to be an
inauspicious dosha in Indian Astrology which has the power to cause troubles and hardships in
an individual’s life. In Indian Astrology, there are a total of 27 constellations out of which 6 form
the Gand Mool Nakshatra Dosha. These 6 constellations are Moola, Revati, Megha, Ashwini,
Ashlesha, and Jyeshtha. These particular constellations are generally ruled by the Planet of Ketu
and the Planet of Mercury. These constellations go through various stages of formation and if the
Moon is placed under any particular 4 stages, the dosha can be formed. It is the specific phase of
the constellations under which the Moon is positioned, which can determine the nature, type, and
the intensity which the Gand Mool Dosha will acquire or possess.
Effects and remedies of the Gand Mool Dosha:
A person who has the presence of the Gand Mool Dosha in his birth chart faces innumerable
troubles in his life. He faces family issues, marital problems and conflicts, and financial crises.
However, the dosha does not always produce inauspicious results especially when the person’s
birth chart influences many benefic planets. Its effect can also be canceled when there is the
presence of auspicious doshas and yogas in the natal chart of the native. Few famous and popular
examples of people having this dosha are Hritik Rosha, Jawaharlal Nehru, Amitabh Bachchan,
Nargis Dutt, Sunil Dutt, and our very own father of the nation – Mahatma Gandhi.
However, not everyone is blessed with favorable doshas and yogas in their kundali which result
in the effect of this dosha to moderate the individual’s life. That is why they must seek effective
remedies from an experienced astrologer to get rid of the powerful effects which the Gand Mool
Dosha can implement on the native’s life and future.
Two of the most effective remedies are:
– Every constellation has a particular lord attached to it. It is said that worshipping the lord
of the constellation which has formed the Gand Mool Dosha in the person’s chart, can lead to canceling its effect. The constellations of Jyestha, Ashlesha, and Revati are ruled
by the Planet of Mercury, Thus, the individual who has the presence of these
constellations must be devoted towards pleasing Mercury and worshipping its power.
Again, the constellations of Megha, Moola, and Ashwini are attached to Lord Ganesha.
Then, the native must lead a life in the devotion of Lord Ganesha.
– Once the Janam kundali is predicted and shows the presence of the Gand Mool Dosha,
the family of the concerned individual must perform the Gandmool Pooja, also known as
the Gand Mool Nakshatra Shanti Pooja exactly on the 27th day after the child is born.
The pooja can also be performed whenever the Moon occupies the birth of Nakshatra
even any time after the 27th day from birth. This Pooja can only be performed once in a
lifetime, exactly after birth. That is why it is so important to structure out the Janam
Kundali of the child immediately after birth.
