In such a situation, this puja is really helpful to reduce the painful impact of the Dosha. Mangal Shanti Puja is very helpful for the resolution of any problems related to the planet Mars such as Mangal Mahadasha, Antardasha, etc, in general.
About Mangal Grah
Mars or Mangal is a red-coloured powerful planet which is also considered to be very fiery and masculine in nature. As per Hindu mythological stories, Mangal is the son of Mother Earth and Varaha. Mangal Grah is also known as the God of war. The planet Mars plays a significant role in one’s horoscope and any ill effect of the planet immediately impacts one’s married life. This planet can protect devotees from any kind of impending danger and can also cause problems in the lives of the devotees, depending on its position in one’s horoscope. Natives under the control of Mars are often short-tempered and carry a sense of rage in their minds.
What is the Effect of Mangal Grah?
Having a strong Mars in the Horoscope is very favourable for the native. The person will have all good skills and personality traits such as positivity, management skills, enthusiasm, courage, mental strength, focus etc. Such a person also faces very fortunate events in life such as timely marriage, great career, financial stability, good progeny etc. However, a weak Mars brings in a lot of malefic effects for a person and he/she suffers from a lot of pain and trouble. The person becomes very aggressive in nature and even indulges in self-harm or self-destruction due to rage.
Mars is generally the Lord of the zodiac signs Aries and Scorpio. In most cases, Mars is malefic and produces a negative impact but in some instances, it helps the devotees in curing certain chronic illnesses, mainly diseases related to the blood. Good positioning of the Mangal Grah in the horoscope helps the native in buying good property and becoming successful in business. Mars becomes very strong and gives positive results when it is placed in the 10th house of the horoscope of the devotee. Mars can also bring in auspicious results for the descendants of Leo and Cancer too.
