To begin with, no temple with idols should be constructed even
for individual worship in a residential house. However, keeping
photos or drawings of deities on paper is not prohibited. This is
highly inauspicious for the natives born with Jupiter in 7th
If there is a small dark room at the end of the
house, where there is no passage for air or light, the same
should be left as it is and no attempt should be made to
facilitate natural light through opening windows etc. in that
room; otherwise, misfortunes will strike the residents.
Places where ornaments or money is kept secretly
must not be left empty. If there is nothing to be kept, please
put some dry fruits there.
There must necessarily be some uncemented place in
a house. But if it is not feasible, the articles related to Venus
must be installed and established therein.
Safe Delivery and Longevity of Children
• Worship of lord Ganesh is highly auspicious
for children and property.
• For safe delivery of children, a milk pot
filled with milk and a sugar pot filled with sugar must be
touched by the delivering mother and kept at some different
place. After the delivery both the pots should be offered to some
temple and should not be brought back from there. Good effects
will multiply if the quality of the pots is good.
• If one's children do not survive the native
must distribute salty preparations in place of sweets, to
celebrate the birth of the child.
Alms and Charity
• Digging of wells or providing drinking water facilities
for public is strictly prohibited for those with moon in 6th
house of the birth chart. Any violation of the above would invite
utter destruction and extreme poverty.
• Building of dharmshalas, sarais or inns is
strictly prohibited for those having Saturn in 8th house.
• Saturn in Lagna and Jupiter in 5th house
cause death of children one after the other, if copper coins are
given in charity.
• Jupiter in 10th and moon in 4th cause false
allegations and critical legal proceedings against the native if
he builds temples or gurudwaras.
• Financial aid to widows and scholarships to
poor children are strictly prohibited for those having Venus in
• Grave consequences would folllow if a native
with moon in 12th house opens schools for free education, or
offers food to religious saints and Jogins.
• Anyone having Jupiter in 7th house must not
offer clothes to anyone in charity
• Donations in the morning and evening hours
by persons having Sun in 7th or 8th house of their horoscope will
produce highly harmful and poisonous effects.
The younger brother should never go for adoption of children of
the elder brother. At the same time he should also not arrange
the free marriage of the daughter of his elder brother. These
practices would certainly lead to disastrous consequences.
Selection of Bridegrooms
• Saturn in 11th house makes the native desert his wife and
children in young age, whereas Saturn in the boy's 2nd house
proves inauspicious for the bride's family.
• Mercury and Rahu combining in houses 3, 8,
9, or 12 of the groom is also inauspicious for the bride's

Further, we all believe that going to a temple for
offering prayer is always a good thing, which must be admired and
encouraged. But according to Lal Kitab, the native having a
malefic planet, especially Saturn in 8th house, when 2nd house is
empty, must not visit temples or other places of worship. Rather
he should bow his head from outside. Similarly, if planets
occupying 6th, 8th and 12th houses are inimical to each other and
2nd house is not occupied by any planet, the native must avoid
visiting temples and other religious places of worship.
The most striking thing about Lal Kitab is that it
enshrines due admiration for Vedic culture and philosophy of the
Hindus. Living in a joint family has been suggested as a powerful
remedial measure and if for some reason this is not possible the
native should sleep on the bed sheet which was used by his
father. In other cases the native has been asked to obtain the
blessings of parents and elders etc. as an amulet against the
evil. It is worth pointing out that such simple and innocent
remedies have worked wonders in tested cases.
