Kumbh Vivah and Ghat Vivah
When a Manglik native has a potential non manglik match in a marriage, the negative effects of mangal dosha is neutralised by performing a renowned remedial ritual called Kumbh or Ghat Vivah. In Hindu Vedic Astrology, a Manglik native has to marry a clay pot filled with water in Kumbh Vivah or a peepal/ kisar/ Banana tree in Ghat Vivah to rectify the dosha effects on marital life. The native can also marry an idola of Lord Vishnu. Actually, this remedy is performed to get rid of the widowhood or death yoga from Manglik’s horoscope.
Mangal Dosha Remedies before Marriage
Manglik Dosha affects the marital life of a native due to Mars’s influence on seventh house, the house of marriage and eighth house, the house of longevity and sexual relationship. If Mars is malefic in the dosha it can mess up the marital life or the health of the spouse. Certain remedies are performed prior to the marriage ceremony of the native.
You might have seen and heard stories of many celebrity marriages where either the groom or bride married a peepal tree before actually marrying their partner. This is a popular remedy to nullify the dosha called ‘Ghat Vivah’ (घट विवाह) or Kumbh Vivah. This remedial marriage ritual is known to remove widowhood from a manglik’s life. When the girl or the bride is manglik, she will be marrying a peepal tree or banana tree or an idol of Lord Vishnu or a clay pot filled with holy water like Ganga Jal or temple theertha as her groom. This is considered as the first marriage of the bride.
After the remedy ritual, a tiny branch of the tree is chopped or the idol of Lord Vishnu idol is floated in a river, or the matki pot is broken based on the chosen method. The marriage where the girl marries the non manglik boy is treated as a second marriage or remarriage. In the natal chart, remarriages are analysed using 9th house. In this scenario, Mars in houses- 1, 4, 7, 8, or 12 will not have any influence on the house of marriage and house of death.
Another known remedy to mitigate manglik dosha in a girl native is by using coral gemstone; this remedial ritual is done during Kanyadhaan (कन्यादान) ceremony of the marriage. Two coral gemstones approximately of same dimensions are used in this remedy. During kanyadaan, these two corals gems are placed inside the right palm of the bride. Her father or a paternal relative, in case of absence of the father is asked to pour water on her right hand washing these corals, while she holds one in her hand and lets the second coral drop into a vessel.
The first gemstone is worn as an ornament, like a ring or pendant, throughout her life. This remedy saves her possible misfortunes of mangal dosh. The second gemstone is offered to a temple or discarded in a waterbody. In the future, if the gemstone is lost or misplaced, it must be bought and borrowed from her parents or paternal side without repeating the ritual.
In case if the boy is Manglik, same marriage (विवाह) ritual is performed by the manglik boy. Instead of peepal tree, kikar tree or a kikar tree branch is used in this remedy. The manglik boy marries this tree or a clay pot and this is treated as his first marriage. Post marital ceremony, the kikar branch or the clay pot dropped in flowing water streams.
