As per the Vedic astrology, Doshas are flaws in the placements of planets in the horoscope of an individual that cause bad to malefic effects on an individual's life. The effects vary from the person to person due to positioning of any planet. There are nine doshas based on the nine astrological planets, like; Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu. Apart from these nine, there are four other doshas that affect the human lives, they are; Vastu dosha, Kaalsarp Dosha, Pitra Dosha and Chandal Dosha.
These doshas cause health problems, mental unrests, marital discords, and failures in life. These doshas can be pacified and their effect nullified by performing the Dosha Nivaran Pujas. These pujas bring back peace and harmony in life, and help us grow ahead on the path of success.
