What is Kalsarpa Yog?

This happens when there are all planets coming between Rahu and Ketu. This results in failure and dejection. because all the karyas don?t happen accordingly to the efforts put in. often leading to negativity, and inferiority complex. This vidhi done by vaidik procedure is very effective although very simple.
