It is stated in the Brahma Puran that, the Lord of death “Yamraj” grant freedom to all the spirits on the eve of Krishna Paksh of Ashvin month so that they can accept and eat the food made by their children at the time of Shraad. The peoples who don’t do the Shraad for their Pitras are the one who suffers from the curse of Ancestors as they got annoyed and returns to their world. Due to this the upcoming generations have to face various troubles. This is what we say is “Pitra Dosh”.
In this world a person’s death can be classified in two ways i.e. natural death and unnatural death. Natural death takes place due to the God but the unnatural death happens mainly because of “Pitra Dosh”. In horoscope we come across about this by studying the location of sun. If sun is exaggerated by any negative planet then the horoscope creates this dosha.
A person who is distress from Pitra Dosh has to face many problems related to his family. Other than that their family may suffer from physical or mental disabilities. Sometimes you may have observed that a kid is suffering from unusual types of diseases from the very first day of his birth.
As per astrologer Pandit Tarun Acharya following are some remedies by which you can get rid of this dosha:
- by giving water to the Banyan tree.
- By giving food items on every “Poornima and” “Amavasya” in some religious places.
- By offering water to our Pitras for the 15 days on the date of their death or during the Shraad.
- By carrying out “Trapandi Shraad”.
By finishing the Shraad on the date on which our ancestors were expired. One should give food to Brahmins on every “Amavasya”.
