Mars Dosha
Mars / Manglik/ Kuja/ Bhom/ Angaraka Dosha are formed when it is posited in any of the 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th, or 12th houses, of the chart. The first house is for self, 4th house for marital happiness and peace of mind, 7th house for the partner in life, 8th house, the most malefic house is the 2nd from 7th and 8th is also known as Mangalya Bhava and 12th for the pleasure of bed. So, all these houses are connected with the marital happiness and harmony. To this, we also add the second house, as it represents family. Married life without progeny will often become a nightmare. But Mars in these houses will have adverse affect only if it is malefic planet for the native.

Classics suggest that Mangal Gauri Mantra is the only remedy for Manglik Dosha. If the native is facing problems such as late marriage, then the native is advised to do the Mangal Gauri Anusthan. Besides Anusthan the devotee has to recite following mantras as told for early efficacy.

Om hrim Manglegauri Vivahbaadhaam naashaaya swaha||
The above mantra is to be recited for a minimum of sixty four thousand to a maximum of hundred twenty five thousand times. The sage of the Mantra is Aja. The metre is Gayatri. The deity of the Mantra is Mangla gauri. The Bija is Hrim and the shakti is Swah. Devi Mangla Gauri is worshipped with panchopchara which includes the articles like vermillion, rice, flowers, dhoop, pure ghee and deep (earthen lamp). Articles of Mars are donated after the anusthan.
