In Hindu religion, Brihaspati is one of the most revered deities. Brihaspati is the ruler of the Navagrahas that has an influence on the human life. He is associated with the planet Jupiter. Brihaspati is the ruler of philosophy, religion, prosperity and intelligence. A well aligned Jupiter in the horoscope has several amazing benefits. People blessed with a well aligned Jupiter can achieve quick success as well as good luck favours. On the contrarily, an unfavourably placed Jupiter can link itself with either Rahu or Ketu. Due to this, the positive effects of Brihaspati are destroyed. An ill-placed Brahaspati may cause several ailments such as jaundice, chronic constipation, thyroid, cold, cough, asthma, nose bleeding, tumour, liver disorders, ear problems and high blood pressure. This inauspicious combination is known as Chandal Dosh which can be corrected by performing Chandal Dosh Nivaran Puja.
