Vedic astrology teaches that doshas result from flawed aspects in a person's horoscope. According to the website, Vedic Astrology Predication, Mars positioned in the first, fourth, seventh, eighth or 12th house creates a Manglik Dosha. This "evil" aspect can indicate that a person's spouse may die early in the union. Three ceremonies to remove a Manglik Dosha include, but are not limited to, Kumbh Vivah, Vishnu Vivah and a Mangal Dosh Nivaran puja. A puja is a worship ceremony.

The girl sits with her parents. She holds a red thread, which she discards when the ceremony is over. The priest crushes the clay pot, which symbolises the death of her spouse.

    Remove a manglik dosha with a Vishnu Vivah ceremony, also known as a Tulsi Vivah. In this ceremony, devotees celebrate the marriage of the Hindu god Vishnu using tulsi (basil) leaves. When the bride bathes in the water containing sacred tulsi, she is granted the same soul-cleansing virtues as taking an official Vishnu Vivah pilgrimage. During the ceremony, she also wears a tulsi bead necklace to remove her fear of death.
