The term 'Manglik' is looked upon with fear and a bit of exclusion in Hindu society. Usually people who have the Mangal dosha in their horoscope
are called Manglik. A person who is born under the influence of the
planet Mars can be called a Manglik.
For such people Mars is the ruling planet. Now we all know that Mars or Mangal is the planet of war. Thus, Mangal dosha is often associated with
marital disharmony. It is also believed that if a normal person marries
a Manglik, he or she may die very soon.
Mangliks have marriage problems because their choice of spouse becomes limited. The concept of Mangal dosha is shrouded in misinformation and blind
faith. That is why it is hard to decipher the truth from myths and
maliciously evil customs
Why do Mangliks have marriage problems?
Mars is a planet that likes to stay alone, and thus it quarrels with whoever is closest to it. That is why, your ruling planet cannot stand your
partner for long until and unless your horoscopes are compatible.
Every Manglik's spouse doesn't die
Even in Mangal dosha, there are degrees. If you are 'purna' Manglik then the influence of Mars is very strong on you. If you are 'vakri' Manglik
then Mars has a slant influence on your life. In most cases, the
influence of this dosha is minor and does not lead to the death of your
Age is a factor
For some people, the influence of Mars is valid only till a certain age. If they get married after this age, problems are not expected to creep up
in their marital life. A late marriage is an option that many people opt
for these days, so it is no big deal.
Even if you are a purna Manglik, your dosha can be remedied by the means of kumbh vivah. In this ritual, the person afflicted by Mangal dosha is
first married to a banana or banyan tree. You can also wed a silver or
gold statue of lord Krishna if you are girl. This negates the dosha from
the person's horoscope.
Some people are double or triple Mangliks. The influence of Mars is so strong on their lives that even if the remarry twice or thrice their
spouse is destined to die. In such cases the kumbh vivah has to be
conducted twice or thrice to remedy the dosha.You can choose to get
married to person who is also a double or triple Manglik.
Hinduism lays great emphasis on good deeds. The goodness of your soul and your inner kindness can remedy a number of dosha in your horoscope. So if you
are a honest and good soul, you will not suffer too much for your
doshas. If you are a Manglik, take it in your stride. It is not the end
of world because you are what you believe you are.
