The following is a translated excerpt of a letter written in Telugu by Her Holiness Amma Sri Karunamayi where she explains the reason for our current challenging times and the possible remedies.

Sri Mathrudevi Vishwashanthi Ashram,
International Headquarters – ‘Sri Puram’,
Penchalakona, Nellore, Dist.,
Andhra Pradesh 524 414, India

March 2020


2020 is the beginning of not only a new decade, but a new astrological era. The year 2020 is a threshold to cross, a pause between the way it has been and the way it will be, necessitating a confrontation with all the difficult challenges in need of a remedy within civilization.

These huge changes will be in the physical body, health, career, partnerships and/or family. This is also a phase where thousands of people globally are house-bound known as GRUHA BANDHANA YOGAM for an indefinite period of time.

How can we all overcome and protect ourselves from any future disasters and calamities?

To set an order for stability and peace of the five planets, Surya (Sun) , Chandra (Moon), Angaraka (Mars), Buddha (Mercury) and Brihaspati (Jupiter) on all individuals, it is highly recommended to take sankalpa to have Rudra abhishekam performed twice a day on these 4 days, namely, Monday, Tuesday Saturday and Sunday for a period of 41 days (optional).


Benefits of performing the Rudra Abhishekam

Those blessed individuals that perform or sponsor this elaborate Rudra abhishekams will receive blessings to destroy lifetimes of karma while promoting longevity, prosperity, good mental health and spiritual elevation including negative karma, unfavorable astrological influences and much more.

  • Chanting RUDRA TRISATI with 300 Bilva leaves after offering the Harati, envelopes us and prevents negativity from entering our hearts and homes. This is also an excellent time to chant Sri Mrityunjaya Mantra for healing any kind of disease or health problem.


Goddess Durga Devi Puja for Ultimate Protection

The Grahas or Planets are divided into two groups, according to their general auspiciousness and inauspicious nature. Moon, Mercury, Jupiter and Venus are known as Benefic or ‘Saumya’ planets while Sun, Saturn, Mars, Rahu and Ketu are classified as Malefic or ‘Krura’ planets.


Kala Sarpa Dosha

  • In Vedic Astrology, Kala Sarpa is an inauspicious Yoga, or Dosha, Kala means Time and Sarpa means serpent.
  • In Astrology Rahu and Ketu are known as great serpent. Rahu is known as the Mouth of the Serpent and Ketu is the rest of the Body.
  • When all the planets including the Lagna are confined within Rahu and Ketu, it is known as Kala Sarpa Dosha or Kala Sarpa Yoga.
  • If the planets are moving towards Ketu, it is Kala Sarpa Yoga and if the planets are moving towards Rahu, it is Kala Sarpa Dosha.
  • These planetary influences may either be harmful or beneficial, to you at some point of your life.


Kala Sarpa Dosha effects

Most of the Kala Sarpa effects are negative, while few can be positive as well. The planets Rahu or Ketu can bring sudden positive changes in one’s life, which can happen overnight or within a short span of time. At the same time, these effects will also vanish away quickly. Both Rahu and Ketu are karmic planets who impact your life according to your karma.

So when Rahu enters the Arudra (Ardra) nakshatra (birth star), it can bring about the following impacts.

  • Global pollution
  • Worsening of health and death
  • Mental unrest
  • House arrest/confinement- (Gruha Bandhana Yogam)
  • Downfall or failure in politics
  • Separation or divorce from the life partner
  • Imprisonment or destruction of kingdom
  • Serious accidents
  • Loss of wealth and poverty


Effective Remedial Pujas

  • Goddess Durga Devi is the Reigning Goddess for Rahu.
  • Goddess Durga Devi is the eternal and supreme primordial energy that exists beyond time. She is Maha Shakti, and energy that pervades everything in the world.
  • To remove all the negativity of Saturn (Shani) and Mars (Mangal/Kuja) and for ultimate protection of the entire universe, Chandi Sapta Sati Parayanam needs to be performed. Sponsor to participate in this Puja to receive great benefits.
  • The all powerful 700 slokas will be chanted to invoke Goddess Durga Devi. The worship of Divine Mother Durga Devi confers inconceivably wonderful grace and blessings. Wonderful benefits are attained from worshiping Goddess Durga Devi with the many different sacred items.
  • Navagraha Shanti Pooja is being performed every day. Sponsor to participate in this puja to receive Blessings in abundance.
