What Exactly Pitru Dosha Is?


‘Pitru Dosha’ is counted as the most prominent Dosha. Ninth house of one’s Kundali belongs to religion (Dharm). This house is also termed as ‘house of father’. If Rahu, Ketu and Mars are posited in this house in their debilitated sign, this means that you are under the effect of Pitru Dosha. Mental stress, lack of peace, wealth loss, domestic discords etc. are possible if one is suffering from Pitru Dosha. A child gets affected Pitru Dosha Yoga in his/her Kundali if his/her elders do not perform Pind Daan. He/she borns with Pitru Dosha in his/her next birth.

Note: Though Shradh done according to Shastra Vidhi is above all, but for those who are unable to do this can perform Shradh rituals during Pitra Paksha. People who are unaware of Tithi (date) of their forefathers can do these rituals on the Amavasya of Pitru Paksha. All this has been given in mythological legends.
