Suganthi: Am having sevvai thosam. If suppose my future husband don’t have sevvai thosam means what will happen for us sir? I need answer from both astro as well as medical too sir.
Swami Ram Swarup: Sevvai dosh is not mentioned in Vedas, so you need not to worry, please. However, I paste one of my article below:-


The darkness of night gets obliterated only when the sun rises. Similarly, illusion is wiped away by gaining the knowledge of Vedas because in Rigveda, it is said that knowledge of Vedas is like a sunlight which kills the illusion. Knowledge of Vedas emanates direct from God. So the knowledge of Vedas is immortal, eternal like God and takes care of the aspirants just like God. This fact is mostly not known by the public due to lack of listening of Vedas from learned Acharya of Vedas. Hence, the preach delivered by most of the present saints does not tally with the knowledge of Vedas. Therefore, self-made worship and illusion has spread everywhere.

Vedas contain the knowledge of all the matters of the universe right from straw to Brahma (God). The matters mentioned in the Vedas or the truth mentioned in the Vedas is always authentic. Therefore nowadays as well as in the ancient times, the self-made path or the views against the Vedas spread by any king or any person like Ravann, Kansa, Duryodhan, Hirannyakashyap, Shroopnakha etc., has led to origination of militancy, injustice, dictatorship and great damage to the public. Because their self made views were/are totally against the Vedas. Similarly, the mangalik or mangal dosh matter has not been mentioned in Vedas. So, one should never be afraid of the same being unauthentic. So, you may go ahead, neglecting mangal dosh issue. To know the truth regarding any matter, our ancient Rishis have advised to tally the matter with Vedas. Since, in Vedas there is no mention of word manglik so you need not to worry. The people who are not manglik are also suffering from the problems suffered by normal married people. Shri Ram married Sita after breaking the bow. And nobody saw Shri Ram’s teva to tally it with that of Sita. In Mahabharat Yudhishthir married Draupadi by piercing arrow in the eye of a fish (the eye was pierced by Arjun the younger brother of Yudhishthir) and there was no matching of teva or determination of mangalik status etc. Savitri married Satyavan at her own wish without any teva matching etc. Pandu married Kunti and Madri without teva matching or determining manglik dosh. Teva means janam patri made by pandit i.e., horoscope.

According to Vedas these are not required and are self-made story. So please do not worry about Manglik etc. Future is based on pious deeds, hard working towards a right path and God helps those who help themselves.

Chandan: Any authentic English translation of Vedas available? If not, then how Arya missionaries are doing vedprachar in Europe, America, etc. English translation of Vedas by Ralph Griffith is highly misleading. How can we read Vedas in English?
