  • Balarishta Dosha:

    Brahmanda Guruji, Shri Narendra Babu Sharmaji just briefed us on Balarishta Dosha. I have collected more information online, which is shared below for all your benefit.

    Though the birth of a child is a happy event for the whole family and is an event brought about by auspicious planetary cycles in the horoscopes of the parents, there are times when the birth occurs under some planetary combinations or asterisms that can endanger the prospects of the child or its closest relatives during the child’s infancy. This condition is called Balarishta or Bala Graha dosha.

    Balarishta dosha literally means “problems arising in infancy”. Baalarishta doshas of a new born child threaten the longevity and well-being of the child and also sometimes the prospects of its closest relatives. The child whose horoscope is afflicted with Balarishta dosha will suffer from frequent inexplicable ailments that will fail to respond to conventional medical treatments. Performance of appropriate remedies along with the medical treatment can provide succor to the suffering child and sigh of relief to the parents.

    Planetary positions in a child’s horoscope that are indicative of the possibility of Balagraha dosha:

    Though there are many combinations given as indicative of balarishta dosha, the easy way to identify whether the horoscope is a Balarishta jataka or not is to check the following main points:

    1) Lagna lord will be weak by position and also strength.

    2) The 5, 8, 9, and 12th houses will have placement of malefics without the aspect of strong benefics.

    3) If Moon being a malefic (Moon is considered to be malefic in its dark phase) is in the 6th or 8th houses without the aspect of benefics.

    4) If Moon in 8th house is aspected by Saturn from the 6th house.

    5) Moon or the lagna lord afflicted by malefics without the aspect of benefics.

    6) Presence of 3 malefics in 4 kendras (Even Sun is considered to be a malefic while judging this).

    7) If Moon is in the kendras or 8th house and at the same attains Mrityubhaagas (fateful degrees) of a sign, then the child's longevity will be threatened. The Fateful degrees are 26th degree of Aries, Taurus 12, Gemini 13, Cancer 25, Leo 24, Virgo 11, Libra 26, Scorpio 14, Sagittarius 13, Capricorn 25, Aquarius 5 and Pisces 12.

    Apart from the above considerations, there are certain asterisms which are said to be productive of troubles to closest relatives of the new born child…..

    Troubles to closest relatives arising from birth of child in certain asterisms:

    1. Troubles indicated to father: Birth in 3rd quarter of Aslesha and Poorvaashaada, in the second quarter of Uttaraashaada and Revati, in the first quarter of Uttaraphalguni and Anuraadhaa, and 4th quarter of Dhanishta can indicate troubles to the child’s father.

    2. Troubles to both the parents: Birth in 1st quarter of Poorvaashaada, in the 2nd and 3rd quarters of Pushyam, in the 1st and 2nd quarters of Chitra, in the 1st quarter of Uttaraphalguni can indicate problems to both the parents.

    3. Birth in Aslesha 2nd quarter can indicate troubles to the elder siblings.

    4. Birth in 1st quarter of Moola nakshatra can indicate troubles to the younger male siblings of the child’s father (the child’s paternal uncle).

    5. Troubles to maternal grandmother, grandfather, and maternal uncle:

    Birth in first quarter of Chitra, 4th quarter of Visaakha, Anuraadhaa, and Moola, 1st quarter of Satabisha and Poorvabhadra, 2nd quarter of Makha, 3rd quarter of Anuraadhaa, 4th quarter of Poorvaashaada, and Full nakshatra of Rohini can indicate troubles to maternal relatives, and especially to the Maternal uncle.

    Remedy for the above conditions when the child’s birth is deemed inauspicious to close relatives is to have the relatives concerned look at their reflection in gingely oil (oil of Sesame seeds) before seeing the child and then looking at the child, and then seeing the reflection in sesame oil again, and then gifting that oil to a vedic Brahmin or to a temple.

  • Powerful Remedies To Overcome Balarishta Dosha:

    A Powerful Jupiter in the lagna will destroy this dosha completely. If Jupiter is in other kendraas (i.e. 4, 7, or 10th houses), its strength should be noted, and also we have to check if this Jupiter aspects the malefic causing the dosha to see whether the dosha is cancelled.

    The other benefics like Venus, or Mercury (unaspected by malefic) can also mitigate the evil of Balarishta dosha if they are well-placed in the horoscope and are endowed with strength.

    If there are no cancellation factors for the balarishta dosha, then proper remedies should be done to remove the dosha as this dosha does adversely affect the child.

    The following are some tried and tested remedies for removal of balarishta dosha:

    1) Chanting

    "Raahur mandah kavir jeevaha Buddho Baumah sasi ravih
    Kaalah srushti sthithir viswa sthaavaro jangamo jagat||"

    with devotion, meditating on Lord Vinaayaka every evening, and then sprinkling the water held in hands on the child's head will help in removing the baalaarishta dosham. This can be highly effective especially if the dosham is caused by Ketu in the horoscope.

    2) Chanting

    "Graheswari Grahaaraadhya Grahinii roga moshini
    Grahaaveshakari Graahyaa Graha Graamaabhi rakshinii

    "Meditating on Goddess Durga will help in removing the Baalaarishta dosha. This should also be chanted every evening, and water energized with this mantra sprinkled on the child's forehead. This will be particularly effective if the dosha is arising out of malefic Moon or Rahu.

    3) Chanting "Om Praanadhaatryai namaha" 108 times daily in the morning meditating on Goddess Lalitha Parameshwari and praying for long life for the child will help to improve the longevity of the child. This mantra can also be used if any person is critical in the hospital and struggling for life.

    4) A visit to Tirukkadaiyur Abhiraami temple and offering of special prayers there will be good for removal of baalaarishta dosham and ensuring longevity of the child.

    5) Offering "Aal roopam" (silver replicas of human form in thin silver foils) to Guruvayoor temple or Tirupati or the temple of your Family Deity will be helpful.

    6) Offering Tulaabhaaram of the respective planetary grain (grain of the planet causing the baalaarishta dosham) in powerful temples like Guruvayoor temple or Tirupati will be a powerful remedy that can remove even the most severe of baalaarishta doshams. If there is confusion as to which is the worst malefic affecting the horoscope and giving rise to the dosham, offering of banana, gingelee oil, ghee, or coconut will be better.

    7) Chanting the 38th slokham of Soundarya Lahiri 5000 times daily for 48 days will definitely help to cancel even the most dangerous of baalaarishta doshams. The offering can be sugarcandy, dried grapes, or any fruit. Of course, performance of this remedy is a little difficult due to time constraints and economic factors involved in this performance. The yantra can be tied as a rakshai to the child's person to ensure safety of the child.

    8) Performance of "Aayush Homam"/ "Mrityunjaya homam" on the child's birth star every year till its 8th year will be very good for ensuring its longevity. This can be done even if the child's horoscope is not afflicted in any way at all!

    Even if your child's horoscope has been diagnosed as one afflicted with balarishta dosha, you need not panic. There is an advantageous flip side to this! If a child is severely afflicted with baalaarishta dosha, and if it survives its childhood sufferings, then in later years that child will have a wonderful destiny. So, if your child's horoscope has balarishta dosha, take heart..... Maybe you have a great soul or a great conqueror in your care!
