Sarpa Dosha is believed to be caused due to Sarpa Sapa or curse of the serpents. The origin of Sarpa Dosha is mythic and unexplained in classics. It is said that there is a mystic power of serpents that rule the world. The Sarpa Dosha is explained as it comes from killing the serpents in previous or present life by self or by father or grandfather and not performing the rituals for the same. The curse affects the lives in a negative way. Getting rid of it becomes necessary to lead a peaceful life. This puja ensures that the effect of the curse is removed from one's life.
