Know Everything About Pitru Dosha and Its Remedies!

According to Hindu religious traditions and beliefs, the Amavasya Tithi of every month is considered an auspicious occasion to commemorate the Shradh rituals of our forefathers. However the time period between Bhadrapada Purnima and Ashwin Amavasya is specifically designated to commemorate the Shradh rituals of our ancestors and pacify their souls. During this while, natives pray for their pacification and salvation of their souls. This time frame is also known as Shradh Paksha or Pitru Paksha.

Pitru Dosha in Kundli

Now, to put an end to Pitru Dosha, it is extremely important to know which planet is responsible for generating which kind of Pitru Dosha. 

The Lagna, fifth, eighth and twelfth houses of a Kundli is taken into account to get information on Pitru Dosha. Also, amongst the planets, the positions of Sun, Moon, Guru/Jupiter, Saturn and Rahu-Ketu are studied to know about Pitru Dosha. Amongst these planets, the roles of Guru or Jupiter, Shani and Rahu are important in each Pitru Dosha.

Speaking of what these planets denote, then information about one’s father is gathered from the Sun, mother from the Moon, brother or sister from Mars and wife from Venus. Pitru Dosha occurs in most natives’ birth chart only when Guru/Jupiter, Shani/Saturn and Rahu remain negatively stated there. So,  along with performing various remedies, if the person also wears a Panch Mukhi (five faced), Saat Mukhi(seven faced) and Aath Mukhi Rudraksha(eight faced), then Pitru Dosha gets resolved very quickly.

Various Debts (Rin) and Pitru Dosha

There are primarily three kinds of debts which can get generated if we don’t pay them back(perform the tasks our ancestors want us to) and we get cursed in return. They are :- Pitri Rin, Dev Rin and Rishi Rin. 

Pitri Rin 

Paternal family members like uncles, grandparents and also the previous three generations have a great influence on our lives. But in this materialistic world that we are living in today, are we paying the necessary homage to our forefathers? The biggest religion a human being can follow is to give the necessary respect to his/her forefathers. If they do not follow this religion, then the upcoming generations may have to face the wrath of their respective forefathers.

Dev Rin 

Our ancestors also followed and worshipped their family deities(Kul Devtas), but the new generation has given up on it completely. That is why the deities/ Kuldevi / Kuladevata make such natives feel their presence by inflicting them with various kinds of sufferings / curses.

Rishi Rin

The new generation also dissociates the Gotra under which they are born and don’t include it with their names. They also do not perform the Tarpan, which is why no auspicious occasions are organised in the homes of such people. 

Moving on, let us now talk about certain indicators which signify the presence of Pitru Dosha in your Kundli. 

Seeing your Forefathers in your Dreams Repeatedly! 

“A friend of mine once told me that he got into a fight with his father which got stretched for quite a few years. After many times, his father expressed the desire to meet his son when he was on his deathbed, but he did not pay him that last visit. His father died without meeting him for one last time. Now, my friend tells me that he saw his father in his dreams and he was not wearing any clothes and the same dream keeps repeating.
