Dosha Nivaran Puja
GandMool Dosh is a defect which is found in almost every 4th to 5th horoscope according to its prevalent definition and is capable of causing serious problems according to some prevalent beliefs in Indian Astrology. So let’s take a look at this defect, know how it is formed, what problems can it pose and what are the remedies for this defect? According to its definition, if the Moon is placed in any of these 6 Constellations or Nakshatras named Revati, Ashvini, Ashlesha, Magha, Jyeshtha or Moola in birth horoscope of a person, the person is said to be born under GandMool Dosh. Which means that placement of the Moon in 6 out of 27 Nakshatras confirms the formation of this defect according to its general definition which is certainly not the case in my opinion. So let’s look further deep into the formation of this defect and see what actually happens when the Moon is placed in these Nakshatras. There are 27 Nakshatras which follow each other in a cyclic order. Every Nakshatra has four Padas or four parts.
Every planet is placed in one of these 27 Nakshatras in one of the 4 Padas. Since GandMool Dosh is formed by the placement of the Moon in any of the above mentioned Nakshatras, so let’s consider this explanation with the Moon moving through all 27 Nakshatras. As the Moon leaves a Nakshatra and is about to enter the next Nakshatra, there comes a point where the two Nakshatras coincide which means that the end point of one Nakshatra coincides with the starting point of the next Nakshatra. Such coincidence can be found 27 times as there are 27 Nakshatras. Now let’s move on to the Zodiac Signs or Rashis which are 12 in number and follow one another in a cyclic order just like the Nakshatras.
When the Moon leaves one Rashi and enters the next Rashi, there comes a point where the two Rashis coincide as in case of Nakshatras. Such coincidence can be found 12 times in case of Rashis as there are 12 Rashis. Knowing this much, now let’s get to know exactly how is GandMool Dosh formed.Now we know that each Nakshatra and each Rashi is coinciding with the previous and next Nakshatra and Rashi at some point. But there are only 3 cases when both of these coincidences are happening at the same time. That is, a Nakshatra is coinciding with a Nakshatra and a Rashi is Coinciding with a Rashi at the same time.
