Pitru Dosh...1


Before you start reading this please note that Respected Mr. Pawan Sinha is organizing a Mahayagya for Pitru Dish Nivaran in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh on Oct 15, 2012. Please use this opportunity:

I wanted to write on something else, but then I realized that this is one of the topics on which respected Mr. Pawan Sinha speaks a lot and often. So,  how does this occur in family and what are the ramifications of it, if present in one's chart - I will try to explore this in this series. I will also try to reiterate some of the remedies that I remember from Pawan Sinha'S lectures. I will also add some which I have read from other sources.

How does this occur in one's family?

There are many ways by which Pitru Dosh can occur. According to general information from various Puranas, Pitru Dosh occurs when the soul of our ancestors and departed forefathers does not get peace ( shanti ) due to any of the following reasons:

1. Bad deeds ( bad karma ) of our ancestors in earlier life, knowingly or unknowingly, are embarrassing their souls,
2. Bad deeds ( bad karma ) of children, knowingly or unknowingly, are embarrassing the soul of ancestors,
3. Lack of fulfillments of parental desires of our ancestors,
4. A sudden and unnatural death of any relative in early age,
5. If someone fails to remember and honour the ancestors properly,
6. If certain wishes are remained attached with the soul of the ancestors, etc.
7. If someone elder in the family or someone of the status of a Guru is insulted and thrown out of the home, the Pitru Dosh creeps in.
8. If the location of kitchen is under the stairs, and cooking has been practiced under it for years, Pitru Dosh occurs.
9. If there is an open waste-water outlet, which has an opening (not necessarily from which water goes in, it's just that waste water is visible) within the living room, and it has remained like that for years, Pitru Dosh happens.
10. Urinating on trees, specially Peepal, Banyan and Neem trees also sows the seeds of Pitru Dosh.
11. It is said in the ancient texts that Pitru Dosh occurs if any ancestors up to the 7th generation on the father’s side and up to the 4th generation on the mother’s side have expired at an early age or have had an unnatural death.

Our ancestors are not only our family members or relatives, but also our teachers, mentors, role models, friends, and Gurus, who have contributed to our welfare and growth in this or previous life. This creates an implied obligation on us to respect them and their parental desires and calls for following good deeds. If by any chance this is not followed by anyone, it may embarrass the souls of the ancestors, which, in turn, becomes Pitru Dosh.

  1. In a chart, Pitra Dosha is said to form when Sun is conjunct with, or aspected by all the malefics i.e., Mars, Rahu-Ketu and Saturn.

    Sun-worship is commonly recommended in such a case.

    Reciting Aditya Hridayam, offering water to the rising Sun, fasting on Sundays and reciting Gayatri Mantra are common remedies for this, apart from performing the Shraddha for one's ancestors properly once again.

    1. Saindhavi,
      Aspect or conjunction from all the malefics is not a mandate. Aspect/conjunction of Rahu is enough for Pitru dosha.

  5. Dear Author and respected viewers, this is a very interesting piece of information about Pitru Dosha.
    The sun represents the father and moon represents the mother( or parents combined )- So, regularly having deep & sincere respect, falling at their feet out of reverence and seeking their blessings itself is a great boon & wards away most of the ill effects of any dosha - including pitru dosha.
    In very ancient and holy places of India like Varnashi ( Shiva's abode ), Gaya ( Vishnu's abode ) and Sethu ( Both Vishnu & Shiva's abode ), if one performs thila tharpana to departed souls of their family & seek their blessing to continue their 'swa-dharma', the ancestors are sure to help.
    As Saindhavi points out, regular chanting of Surya mantras at the dawn and dusk and Gayatri mantra parayana are also of utmost benefit. But Gayatri mantra Parayana must be performed only after Dhiksha from a Guru / father figure and that itself is a great blessing in one's life.
