This is one of the most important concepts of Vedic astrology and it is called Pitra Dosh. It is generally defined by many astrologers as the curse of ancestors, which means the forefathers of the person having Pitra Dosh in his horoscope are unhappy with him and therefore they are cursing the native and due to that curse; the native may suffer from debt, diseases, failures all around, being childless and in the worst cases, early death due to accident or serious diseases. These astrologers believe that the native under the impact of Pitra Dosh has not completed the after death rituals of his forefathers like grandfather. The ancestors of the native are troubled in other worlds due to not receiving proper rituals and hence they are cursing the native for not doing his duty; and this curse is called Pitra Dosh.

We have already discussed misconceptions related to many important concepts in Vedic astrology. In case of Pitra Dosh, the misconception starts right from its definition which states that it is the curse of ancestors. Pitra Dosh is not a curse of the ancestors for sure and here is how. The horoscope of a person is drawn and decided right at the time of his birth and accordingly any types of defects are decided at the time of his birth which includes defects like Kaal Sarp Yog, Manglik Dosh and Pitra Dosh among other defects.

Coming to the defect called Pitra Dosh, if this defect is decided at the time of birth of a person, what has this person done in this life to get cursed by the ancestors? It means if a person grows older and does some bad Karmas or bad deeds which may bring disgrace to the good and fair name of ancestors, then it may be considered that the ancestors are cursing that person. But why curse a person before his birth? For the people reading this article who may have an opinion that the person may have done some bad Karmas or bad deeds related to the ancestors in the past lives and that is why he has got Pitra Dosh in his horoscope, let me tell you that in most cases, a person born in a family line is none other than one of his own ancestors. For example a person born in a family line is usually one of the forefathers of that family who has reborn in that family again.

According to the theory of Karmic astrology, most people are born in the same family lines with same friends and same enemies in many of their lives until their Karmic debts, duties and rewards are all cleared from that particular group of people or we can call them particular group of souls. It should not be difficult to understand that if a soul has unfinished business related to some particular souls, whether such business is positive or negative, such soul is logically supposed to be born along with these souls only; and that also in close relation to these souls, so that it may finish its unfinished business with these souls.

Considering an example, a native works very hard towards the betterment of his family line and he creates great fortunes for his sons and grandsons to enjoy. Before this native enjoys those fortunes properly, he may die. His sons as well as grandsons are all indebted to this native for providing them so many fortunes and pleasures; and they want to serve him and repay him. As a result, this native may be born in the same family as his grandson or great grandson so that he may enjoy all the pleasures of the fortunes initially created by him and at the same time, he may give opportunities to his sons or grandsons to serve him and fulfill their desires.

Similarly, if a native engages in all types of vices and money wasting practices; and he destroys the fortunes made by his ancestors so that the coming generations of his family line may have to struggle a lot in order to rebuild such fortunes; the native may be born as his grandson or great grandson in this case also. This native may be reborn in this family at the time when financial struggles are at their peak and he may have to go through many types of problems in order to get through such financial troubles, so that that he may face the fruits of bad karmas that he had committed in his past life. Likewise, a soul may be born in the same family line due to many other reasons. Since most souls have maximum number of unfinished businesses with their family members, whether such businesses are positive or negative, it is but logical for such souls to be reborn in the same families, so that they may attend to their unfinished businesses.

Coming back to the point, what actually is this Pitra Dosh if it is not a curse of the ancestors? Let’s look into the matter and find out what is Pitra Dosh. Pitra Dosh is not a curse of the ancestors, but it is a Karmic debt of the ancestors which the native having Pitra Dosh in his horoscope is supposed to pay. In simple words, Pitra Dosh is formed in the horoscope of a native due to bad Karmas or bad deeds done by the ancestors of that native and this native is supposed to pay that Karmic debt by suffering the punishments decided for those debts in different spheres of his life.

Such native may suffer until the debt is cleared either through punishment or through the good deeds done by the native having such Pitra Dosh in his horoscope. So Pitra Dosh in a horoscope doesn’t mean that the ancestors are cursing the native having Pitra Dosh in his horoscope, it means that the ancestors of such native are themselves cursed. Hence the native has to engage in more and more good karmas so that his ancestors as well as he may get rid of the sufferings caused by such Pitra Dosh. This theory may sound confusing to some people, so let’s try to explain it on the basis of scientific as well as Karmic logics.

Starting with science, it is a well known fact that there are a number of diseases found today which are genetic in nature, which means that they are passed from mothers or fathers to their children. A common example of such diseases is diabetes which is prevailing throughout the world and in many cases it is passed from generation to generation, though it may not affect some of the children born to a diabetic mother or father. In the same way, a son generally inherits the assets and liabilities of his father which may have come from the forefathers also. Likewise, a son may inherit his father’s physical or mental strength and he may also inherit his father’s physical or mental weakness. The same goes for physical shape and looks, which means that children can inherit their parents’ good or bad looks as well as their good or bad physical shapes.

Similarly other examples can be considered to validate the theory that the good or bad things earned, owned and owed by the parents or forefathers are passed on to the children of the family line. The theory of Karmic debts also works in the same way with the only difference that it shows the results in the present life based on the Karmas done in previous lives. As I have already mentioned that most people are born in the same family lines and they have the same circle of friends, so an ancestor suitable for the punishments for the Karmic debt formed on a family line according to the bad Karmas done by him in his previous lives, is sent on earth to pay those debts and bear the punishments.

As this person does good or bad deeds in his present life, it contributes to the negative or positive Karmic balance of that family line where the negative balance means the debt and positive balance means the rewards which are going to be enjoyed by the coming generations of that family. This is why so much emphasis is put on doing good Karmas and it is often preached that the bad Karmas done by a person are going to affect the family line of that person which includes his children and their children. In the same way, the good Karmas done by a person earn Karmic rewards which are paid to the future members of his family line, who may enjoy good or great fortunes due to the good deeds done by their fathers and forefathers, just like a person enjoys the wealth earned and owned by his father. Let’s now go deeper into this theory of Karmic ancestral debts and rewards with the help of an example taken from Hindu Mythology.

This example belongs to the birth of the holiest river belonging to Hindu religion, which is called Maa Ganga by Indians and is commonly known as river Ganges by rest of the world. Long time back, there was a king named Sagar who was an ancestor of Lord Rama. Due to some misunderstanding, the sons of king Sagar attacked a great sage Kapil and they all died with the burning flames coming out of the eyes of angry sage Kapil. Sages are given great respect in India due to which insulting and attacking a great sage like Kapil formed a heavy Karmic debt on the family line of king Sagar, which was going to trouble all the coming generations of this family. Knowing this, Anshuman the grandson of king Sagar went to sage Kapil, asked for his forgiveness and requested him to prescribe a way to relieve the family of this ancestral debt. It was then told by sage Kapil that if the holy river Ganga is brought to the earth from the heavens and the ashes of the burnt princes are offered to holy river Ganga, this debt can be cleared.

Accordingly, Anshuman worshiped throughout his life to bring Ganga to earth but he didn’t succeed and the duty was passed on to his son king Dilip who also worshiped throughout his life to bring Ganga to earth to clear the Karmic debts of his forefathers. However, king Dilip also didn’t succeed and the duty was passed on to his son king Bhagirath who also worshiped Lord Brahma very dedicatedly. One day, Lord Brahma came to answer his prayers and he blessed him with his wish that Ganga would be sent to earth to relieve his family and forefathers of their Karmic debts. As Lord Brahma blessed Bhagirath, king Bhagirath posed a question to Lord Brahma, which goes something like this.

“O Great Lord Brahma Ji, I have a question to ask and kindly bless me with the answer to this question. My grandfather Anshuman and my father Dilip worshipped you throughout their lives but you didn’t answer their prayers whereas you have answered my prayers. Was there any defect in their way of worship or was something else wrong due to which you didn’t listen to the prayers of my father and my grandfather?”

Hearing this Lord Brahma smiled and said, “Insulting and attacking a great sage like Kapil caused a very heavy karmic debt on your family line and all of it needed to be paid in order for me to come and bless a member of your family line with his wish. Your father and grandfather worshipped throughout their lives and they were able pay most of this debt through such worship, but as this debt was not cleared, so I didn’t come to grant their wish. As you started worshipping, the Karmic debt has been cleared and after that you have earned sufficient Karmic rewards for your wish to be granted by continuously worshipping me; and that is why I am here to bless you with your wish. Worship never goes waste Bhagirath. Had your father and grandfather not worshipped me so hard, your worship may not have succeeded”. After that, Maa Ganga was sent to earth to bless the souls of Bhagirath’s forefathers as well as those of many others.

The moral of the story is that the karmic debt levied on the forefathers of king Bhagirath needed to be cleared before the family line could be blessed again with good fortunes. Therefore, three generations of his family worshipped the Lord to clear this Karmic debt and earn Karmic rewards which led to the good results like the incarnation of Lord Rama in the same family line, which shows that the positive karmic balance of this family line was extremely great because a family line which witnessed the birth of Lord himself, was without any doubt the most prestigious Karmic family line of that time.

Coming back to Pitra Dosh, it should now be easy to understand that Pitra Dosh is not a curse of the ancestors as defined by some astrologers, but it is the debt formed as a result of bad deeds done by the ancestors and this debt has to be paid by the present generation; either by taking the punishments decided according to that debt or by doing some specific types of good Karmic deeds which may help paying this debt so that the degree of punishment may be decreased. After knowing so much about the definition of Pitra Dosh, let’s find out how this defect is formed in a horoscope.

If the Sun which is an indicator of the self and the ancestors, is afflicted by a malefic planet, Pitra Dosh is formed in the horoscope and depending on the afflicting planet as well as on some other factors, the kinds and results of Pitra Dosh change. For example, the worst kind of Pitra Dosh is formed by the affliction of Rahu and Ketu to the Sun by placement and aspect, and the Pitra Dosh where Sun and Rahu are placed in the same house, is a very serious Pitra Dosh and can even prove fatal for the native if the afflictions are strong. The affliction to the Sun by malefic Saturn also forms a serious Pitra Dosh and similarly any malefic planet afflicting the Sun forms Pitra Dosh which can trouble the native in different ways depending on the afflicting planet, the strength of the afflicting planet and the Sun, the placement of the afflicting planet as well as the Sun and some other factors.

Apart from this, Pitra Dosh is also formed if ninth house of a horoscope which stands for ancestors among other things; is afflicted by a malefic planet and the results should be predicted in the same way as in case of afflictions to the Sun. Afflictions to the Lord of ninth house also form Pitra Dosh in a horoscope. In the same way, if the Moon is afflicted by a malefic planet or planets, Matru Dosh is formed in the horoscope and the worst type of Matru Dosh is formed by the placement of Ketu with Moon.

The formation of Pitra Dosh in a horoscope can trouble the native under its impact with many types of problems depending on the type of Pitra Dosh as well as depending on the overall tone of his horoscope. For example, Pitra Dosh formed due to the presence of Sun along with malefic Saturn in the fifth house may delay the birth of the children till late or very late in the life of the native suffering from it. However, Pitra Dosh formed due to the presence of Sun in the fifth house of a horoscope along with malefic Mars may deny the possibility of children to the native or it may trouble the native with the death of many children before birth, and only then this native may witness a live child.

Similarly, Pitra Dosh formed due to the presence of Sun in the tenth house of a horoscope along with malefic Saturn can delay the professional success of the native due to which the native may not witness significant professional success before his age of 41. On the other hand, Pitra Dosh formed due to the presence of Sun in the tenth house of a horoscope along with malefic Saturn and Mars can either keep the native away from professional success throughout his life, or such native may become a criminal and he may have to spend many years of his life in prison by virtue of being convicted for a serious crime.

Considering one more possibility, Pitra Dosh formed due to the presence of Sun in the seventh house of a horoscope along with malefic Mercury can delay the marriage of the native under its impact and hence the native may not get married till his age of 35. On the other hand, Pitra Dosh formed due to the presence of Sun in the seventh house of a horoscope along with malefic Saturn and malefic Ketu may deny the possibility of marriage to the native, unless there is a strong marriage promoting planet in his horoscope. Even if such marriage promoting planet is there, the native suffering from such Pitra Dosh may get married after his age of 41 and he may also have problems in having children or some other types of problems related to children.

Let’s try to understand this concept with the help of a practical example. If Sun is placed in the fifth house of a horoscope in the sign of Cancer and malefic Saturn also joins Sun in the fifth house, Pitra Dosh is formed in this horoscope. Since the fifth house of a horoscope deals with children along with many other things, the native may not witness the birth of his first child till 35 years of his age. Looking at a couple of different combinations from here, if benefic Moon is placed in the first house of this horoscope in the sign of Pisces along with benefic Jupiter when Sun and malefic Saturn form Pitra Dosh in the fifth house, the native may surely have children. This native may have children soon after his age of 35 and he may enjoy many good things through such children.

On the other hand, if malefic Moon is placed in the sixth house of this horoscope in the sign of Leo along with malefic Rahu; and malefic Ketu is placed in the twelfth house of this horoscope in the sign of Aquarius when malefic Sun and Saturn are placed in the fifth house, the problem may aggravate. The native troubled by such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may have to wait till the age of 41 in order to have children. If this native has a child before the age of 41, such child may be either physically handicapped or mentally challenged, due to the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets mentioned in this example. Similarly, Pitra Dosh may form in all other houses of a horoscope in many possible combinations, and it may trouble the native under its impact with a variety of problems depending on the overall tone of his horoscope.

Vedic astrology mentions many remedies to rectify Pitra Dosh present in a horoscope. However it should be noted that Pitra Dosh is a very technical defect and general remedies may not be sufficient in order to get rid of it. Hence it becomes very important to first indentify the planet or planets which form Pitra Dosh in a horoscope by afflicting Sun, ninth house or the lord of ninth house. Once the planet or planets forming Pitra Dosh are identified, appropriate remedies should be practiced to rectify such Pitra Dosh.

For the people who are told that Pitra Dosh is a curse of the ancestors and it can be rectified by doing poojas and charities to pacify and please their ancestors, you should know that such remedies are not going to do much good for you because your ancestors are not cursing you, they are themselves cursed. Hence you don’t need to pray to them, but you need to pray for them. Therefore in order to relieve yourself and your ancestors of the Pitra Dosh present in your horoscope, identify the planet or planets causing Pitra Dosh in the horoscope and then do specific remedies to pay the debts of that planet or planets so that the quantum of punishment rendered to you by this defect may be gradually reduced.

Vedic Astrology is undoubtedly the oldest and most comprehensive faith of astrology among all such faiths practiced across the globe, and whereas some of these faiths have the depth and volume of a stream, some of a river, Vedic Astrology is the Ocean which can provide resources to all these faiths and which can validate or invalidate any one of these faiths.

I have studied and researched many such faiths like Numerology, Vaastu etc. but none of them holds their ground without the support of Vedic Astrology and it is the faith which is the backbone or motherboard of all such faiths. This is what inspired me to make a carrier choice with the Ocean itself and now after years and years of this voyage; I can happily say that I made the right choice, many years back.

The fact that Vedic Astrology is the oldest among such faiths, also exposes it and makes it vulnerable to many types of corruptions and adulterations from time to time which may have come in the form of selfish additions to some of the purest Vedic Astrology scriptures or which may have resulted from misinterpretations of many important concepts of Vedic Astrology, from time to time. It is only due to such adulterations, corruptions and misinterpretations, that Vedic Astrology does not look as complete and accurate to many people interested in it, as it actually is, in this day and age.

With the Grace of Lord Shiva, I have spent years in researching various concepts of Vedic Astrology and in finding where and how much, such concepts may have been misinterpreted and what could be the possible correct interpretation of these divine concepts. Whereas in their misinterpreted forms, most such concepts of Vedic Astrology do not hold ground in real practice of astrology, almost all of them hold solid ground in their modified forms.

I have found out this fact after years of intensive research on these topics and after cross checking them with thousands of horoscopes so that they should hold ground when it comes to real life and real horoscopes instead of just reflecting on paper, and after all this effort, I can say that now they do hold ground in their modified forms.

Hence this book should be understood as an effort to create such awareness among the lovers of Vedic Astrology that this faith itself is still as complete as it was when it was born, but various misinterpretations from time to time, may have caused confusions related to many important concepts of this faith. Through this book, I have tried to create awareness about various aspects related to the concept of Pitra Dosh in Vedic Astrology.

This book starts with an article on Pitra Dosh, which discusses some of the prevailing beliefs related to this defect and which also deals with some interesting facts related to this defect.

Pitra Dosh is not a curse of the ancestors, but it is a Karmic debt of the ancestors which the native having Pitra Dosh in his horoscope is supposed to pay. In simple words, Pitra Dosh is formed in the horoscope of a native due to bad Karmas or bad deeds done by the ancestors of that native and this native is supposed to pay that Karmic debt by suffering the punishments decided for those debts in different spheres of his life.

Such native may suffer until the debt is cleared either through punishment or through the good deeds done by the native having such Pitra Dosh in his horoscope. So Pitra Dosh in a horoscope doesn’t mean that the ancestors are cursing the native having Pitra Dosh in his horoscope, it means that the ancestors of such native are themselves cursed. Hence the native has to engage in more and more good karmas so that his ancestors as well as he may get rid of the sufferings caused by such Pitra Dosh. This theory may sound confusing to some people, so let’s try to explain it on the basis of scientific as well as Karmic logics.

Starting with science, it is a well known fact that there are a number of diseases found today which are genetic in nature, which means that they are passed from mothers or fathers to their children. A common example of such diseases is diabetes which is prevailing throughout the world and in many cases it is passed from generation to generation, though it may not affect some of the children born to a diabetic mother or father. In the same way, a son generally inherits the assets and liabilities of his father which may have come from the forefathers also. Likewise, a son may inherit his father’s physical or mental strength and he may also inherit his father’s physical or mental weakness. The same goes for physical shape and looks, which means that children can inherit their parents’ good or bad looks as well as their good or bad physical shapes.

Similarly other examples can be considered to validate the theory that the good or bad things earned, owned and owed by the parents or forefathers are passed on to the children of the family line. The theory of Karmic debts also works in the same way with the only difference that it shows the results in the present life based on the Karmas done in previous lives. As I have already mentioned that most people are born in the same family lines and they have the same circle of friends, so an ancestor suitable for the punishments for the Karmic debt formed on a family line according to the bad Karmas done by him in his previous lives, is sent on earth to pay those debts and bear the punishments.

As this person does good or bad deeds in his present life, it contributes to the negative or positive Karmic balance of that family line where the negative balance means the debt and positive balance means the rewards which are going to be enjoyed by the coming generations of that family. This is why so much emphasis is put on doing good Karmas and it is often preached that the bad Karmas done by a person are going to affect the family line of that person which includes his children and their children. In the same way, the good Karmas done by a person earn Karmic rewards which are paid to the future members of his family line, who may enjoy good or great fortunes due to the good deeds done by their fathers and forefathers, just like a person enjoys the wealth earned and owned by his father.

With this, I now take your permission to lead you to the book.

This is one of the most important concepts of Indian astrology and it is called Pitra Dosh which is generally defined by many astrologers as the Curse of Ancestors meaning that the forefathers of the person having Pitra Dosh in his horoscope are unhappy with him and therefore they are cursing the native and due to that curse the native may suffer from debt, diseases, failures all around, being childless and in the worst cases, early death due to accidents or serious diseases.

In case of Pitra Dosh, the misconception starts right from its definition which states that it is the curse of Ancestors. Pitra Dosh is not a curse of the Ancestors for sure and here is how. The horoscope of a person is drawn and decided right at the time of his birth and accordingly any kind of defects are decided at the time of his birth which includes defects like Kaal Sarp Dosh, Manglik Dosh and Pitra Dosh among other defects.

Coming to the defect called Pitra Dosh, if the defect is decided at the birth of a person, then what has this person done in this birth to get cursed by the ancestors. I mean if a person grows older and does some bad Karmas or Bad deeds which may bring disgrace to the good and fair name of Ancestors, then it may be considered that the Ancestors are cursing that person. But why curse a person before his birth? And for the people reading this article who may have an opinion that the person may have done some bad Karmas or bad deeds related to the ancestors, in the past lives and that is why he has got Pitra Dosh in his horoscope, let me tell you that in most cases, a person born in a family line is none other than one of his own Ancestors.

For example a person born in a family line is usually one of the forefathers of that family who has reborn in that family again. According to the theory of Karmic astrology, most people are born in the same family lines with same friends and same enemies in many of their lives until their Karmic debts, duties and rewards are all cleared from that particular group of people or we can call them particular group of Souls. Coming back to the point, what actually is this Pitra Dosh if it is not a curse of the Ancestors? Let’s look into the matter and find out what is Pitra Dosh.

Pitra Dosh is not a curse of the Ancestors, but it is a Karmic Debt of the ancestors which the person having Pitra Dosh in his horoscope is supposed to pay. In simple words, Pitra Dosh is formed in the horoscope of a person due to bad Karmas or bad deeds done by the Ancestors of that person and this person is supposed to pay that Karmic debt by suffering the punishments decided for those debts in different spheres of his life until the debt is cleared either by punishment or by the good deeds done by the person having this Pitra Dosh in his horoscope. So the presence of Pitra Dosh in a horoscope does not mean that the Ancestors of the person having Pitra Dosh in his horoscope are cursing him, but it means that the Ancestors of such a person are themselves cursed. This theory may sound confusing to some people, so let’s try to explain it on the basis of scientific as well as Karmic logics.

Starting with science, it is a well known fact that there are a number of diseases found today which are genetic in nature which means that they are passed from mother or father to their children. A common example of such diseases is diabetes which is prevailing throughout the world and in many cases it passes from generation to generation, though it may not affect some of the children born to a diabetic mother or father. In the same way, a son generally inherits the assets and liabilities of his father, which may have come from the forefathers also. Similarly other examples like fame, defame and physical resemblance can be considered to validate the theory that the good or bad things earned, owned and owed by the parents or forefathers are passed on to the children of the family line.

The theory of Karmic debts also works in the same way with the only difference that it shows the results in the present life based on the Karmas done in previous lives. As I have already mentioned that most people are born within the same family lines and same circle of friends, so an Ancestor suitable for the punishment of the Karmic debt of a family according to the bad Karmas done by him in his previous lives, is sent on earth to pay those debts and bear the punishments.

As this person does good or bad deeds in his present life, it contributes to the negative or positive Karmic balance of that family line where the negative balance means the debt and positive balance means the rewards which are going to be enjoyed by the coming generations of that family. This is why so much emphasis is put on doing good Karmas and it is often preached that the bad Karmas done by a person are going to affect the family line of that person which includes his children and their children.

In the same way, the good Karmas done by a person earn Karmic rewards which are paid to the future members of his family line who are going to enjoy good or great fortunes due to the good deeds done by their fathers and forefathers just like a person enjoys the wealth earned and owned by his father. Let’s now go deeper into this theory of Karmic Ancestral debts and rewards with the help of an example taken from Hindu Mythology.

This example belongs to the birth of the Holiest River belonging to Hindu religion, which is called Maa Ganga by Indians and which is commonly known as River Ganges by rest of the world. Long time back, there was a King named Sagar who was an Ancestor of Lord Rama. Due to some misunderstanding, the sons of King Sagar attacked a great Sage Kapil and they all died of the burning flames coming out of the eyes of angry sage Kapil.

Sages are given great respect in India, so insulting and attacking a great sage like Kapil formed a heavy Karmic debt which was going to trouble all the coming generations of this family. Knowing this, Anshuman the grandson of King Sagar went to Sage Kapil, asked for his forgiveness and requested him to prescribe a way to relieve the family of this Ancestral debt. It was then told by Sage Kapil that if the holy river Ganga is brought to the earth from the heavens and the ashes of the burnt Princes are offered to holy river Ganga, only then this debt can be cleared.

Accordingly, Anshuman worshiped throughout his life to bring Ganga to earth but he did not succeed and the duty was passed on to his son King Dilip who also worshiped throughout his life to bring Ganga to earth to clear the Karmic debts of his forefathers. King Dilip also did not succeed and the duty was passed on to his son King Bhagirath who also worshiped Lord Brahma very dedicatedly and one day Lord Brahma came to answer his prayers and blessed him with his wish that Ganga would be sent to earth to relieve his family and forefathers of their Karmic debts. As Lord Brahma blessed Bhagirath, King Bhagirath posed a question to Lord Brahma which goes something like this.

“O Great Lord Brahma, I have a question to ask and kindly bless me with the answer to this question. My grandfather Anshuman and my father Dilip worshipped you throughout their lives but you did not answer their prayers whereas you have answered my prayers. Was there any defect in their way of worship or was something else wrong due to which you did not listen to the prayers of my father and my grandfather?”

Hearing this Lord Brahma smiled and said, “Insulting and attacking a great sage like Kapil caused a very heavy karmic debt on your family line and all of it needed to be paid in order for me to come and bless a member of your family line with his wish. Your father and grandfather worshipped throughout their lives and they were able to pay most of this debt, but as the debt was not cleared, so I did not come to grant their wish. As you started worshipping, the Karmic debt was cleared and after that you earned sufficient Karmic rewards for your wish to be granted, by keeping worshipping me and that is why I am here to bless you with your wish”. After that Maa Ganga was sent to earth to bless the souls of Bhagirath’s forefathers as well as many others.

The moral of the story is that the karmic debt levied on the forefathers of king Bhagirath needed to be cleared before the family line could be blessed again with good fortunes and therefore three generations of his family worshipped the Lord to clear this Karmic debt and earn Karmic rewards which led to the good results like the incarnation of Lord Rama in the same family line. It shows that the positive karmic balance of this family line was extremely high because a family line which witnessed the birth of Lord himself was without any doubt the most prestigious Karmic family line of that time.

Coming back to Pitra Dosh, now it should be easy to understand that Pitra Dosh is not the curse of the ancestors as defined by some astrologers, but it is a debt formed as a result of bad deeds done by the ancestors and this debt has to be paid by the present generation either by taking the punishment decided according to the debt or by doing some specific good Karmic deeds which help paying this debt so that the degree of punishment may be decreased.

After knowing this much about Pitra Dosh, let’s find out how this Dosh is seen present in a horoscope. If the Sun which is an indicator of the Self and the Ancestors, is afflicted by a malefic planet, Pitra Dosh is formed in the horoscope and depending on the afflicting planet, the kinds and results of Pitra Dosh change.

For example, the worst kind of Pitra Dosh is formed by the affliction of Rahu and Ketu to the Sun by placement and aspect, and the Pitra Dosh where the Sun and Rahu are placed in the same house, is a very serious Pitra Dosh and it can even prove fatal for the native if the afflictions are strong. The affliction to the Sun by a malefic Saturn also forms a serious Pitra Dosh and similarly any malefic planet afflicting the Sun forms Pitra Dosh which can trouble the native in different ways depending on the afflicting planet, the strength of the afflicting planet and the Sun, the placement of the afflicting planet as well as the Sun and some other factors.

Apart from this, Pitra Dosh is also formed if 9th house of a horoscope which stands for Ancestors among other things, is afflicted by a malefic planet and the results should be predicted in the same way as in case of afflictions to the Sun. Afflictions to the Lord of 9th house also form a Pitra Dosh.

And now that we know about Pitra Dosh, let’s discuss its remedies. Like all other defects presents in a horoscope, Pitra Dosh is a very technical Dosh and general remedies are not sufficient for it. It is very important first to identify the planet or planets causing Pitra Dosh and then do the remedies and Poojas for those planets. And for the people who are told that Pitra Dosh is a curse of the ancestors and it can be modified by doing Poojas and charities to pacify and please their ancestors, let me tell you that this remedy is not going to do much good for you because your Ancestors are not cursing you but they are themselves cursed and so you don’t need to pray to them, but you need to pray for them.

So in order to relieve yourself and your ancestors of the Pitra Dosh present in your horoscope, identify the planet causing Pitra Dosh in the horoscope and then do specific charities and Poojas to pay the debts of that planet and pacify that planet so that it may reduce the quantum of punishment it is imposing on you.

When Sun or the lord of the ninth house is placed in the ninth house of a horoscope and it is afflicted by a malefic planet which is also placed in the ninth house, Pitra Dosh is formed in the ninth house of such horoscope. Pitra Dosh in the ninth house can cause many types of problems for the native under its impact, depending on its strength and on the overall horoscope of the native. Pitra Dosh formed in the ninth house of a horoscope is undoubtedly the worst type of Pitra Dosh as this is the only house of the horoscope where the Sun itself can form Pitra Dosh by afflicting a house. Ninth house is the only house of a horoscope which can lead to the formation of double Pitra Dosh in the horoscope, if malefic planets are placed in this house.

As we already know that the affliction of any malefic planet to the ninth house of a horoscope can form Pitra Dosh in the horoscope, if the ninth house of a horoscope is afflicted by virtue of the placement of one or more than one malefic planets in this house along with Sun, double Pitra Dosh may be formed in the horoscope. For example, if a combination of malefic Rahu and Sun is placed in the ninth house of a horoscope in the sign of Cancer, such result may be experienced. Malefic Rahu may afflict Sun as well as the ninth house of this horoscope and hence double Pitra Dosh may be formed in the horoscope. Similarly, the presence of any other malefic planet in the ninth house of a horoscope can lead to the formation of double Pitra Dosh in such horoscope.

Pitra Dosh formed in the ninth house of a horoscope can trouble the native almost on every front of his life and it can cause serious problems in one or two spheres of native’s life, which are generally permanent in nature. Ninth house is the house of luck in a horoscope and the formation of Pitra Dosh in this house of a horoscope can reduce or destroy the luck of the native; and no one can achieve much without luck. Hence this type of Pitra Dosh can trouble the natives under its impact with a wide variety of problems or so to say, it can hit them almost in every sphere of their lives.

Some natives may feel the heat of such Pitra Dosh in the sphere of their profession due to which they may have to face many types of problems in their professions, depending on the overall tone of their horoscopes. Some of these natives may not find well paying jobs and they may have to engage in low paying as well as low standard jobs. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type in a horoscope, the native under its impact may suffer from extremely tight financial equation throughout his life, primarily due to his inability to earn well from his profession.

When touching its extremes, this type of Pitra Dosh can produce beggars who may have to feed on the money donated by other people, people who may spend most of their lives in charitable organizations, people who may run away from their families and live in asylums for very long periods of time, people serving long sentences in prisons which may be far away from their homes and many other such people who may suffer from continuous and almost permanent types of troubles and miseries. Most people under the strong influence of this type of Pitra Dosh hold no respect in the society and on the contrary; they may have to keep facing social disgrace and disrespect, time and again in their lives.

This type of Pitra Dosh can trouble the natives under its impact with some of the strangest and most troublesome types of problems where the quantum of such problems depends on the overall horoscopes of these natives. For example, the natives randomly and suddenly chosen for kidnappings, the natives held captives or hostages for long periods of time, the natives having to spend long periods of time on deserted islands on account of shipwrecks, the natives taking wrong medicines by someone else’s mistake and getting ill for long periods of time, the natives getting injured or even killed in some kind of fight or crossfire in which they may not be involved at all; and all other types of natives who may not intentionally get themselves into troubles but who may get into such troubles on account of bad luck, may be under the strong malefic influence of Pitra Dosh present in the ninth house of their horoscopes.

The most troublesome aspect of this type of Pitra Dosh is that the natives under the strong influence of this defect may not suffer because of their own mistakes in many cases, and they may suffer on account of pure bad luck which may land them into troubles every now and then; even when they may have done nothing wrong to deserve such troubles. This is what makes it the most difficult to handle type of Pitra Dosh as there is virtually no wisdom or word of advice which can save people suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh.

Even the wisest of the people suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may suffer from many types of problems, not only due to their mistakes, but because of their wisdom. It means that the natives suffering from such Pitra Dosh may have to face many problems due to their wisdom, their skills, their knowledge or some other qualities that they may possess; as some influential or powerful people may be jealous or fearful of their qualities. Hence such influential or powerful people may try to destroy these natives as they may see these natives as potential threats to them, in the future. You see, how Pitra Dosh formed in the ninth house of a horoscope can make even the best of your virtues; your greatest enemies.

Pitra Dosh in the ninth house of a horoscope can trouble the natives under its impact with many types of problems before and after their marriages, depending on the overall tone of their horoscopes. Some natives under its impact may not get married on time and their marriages may get delayed till late or very late in their lives. Some other natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may have to face many types of problems after their marriages and such problems may intensify with the addition of other negative planets to their horoscopes. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it receives support from other marriage breaking planets in a horoscope, the native under its impact may have to go through more than one broken marriage.

Considering an example, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic retrograde Saturn and Jupiter in the ninth house of a horoscope in the sign of Pisces, malefic Ketu is placed in the first house of this horoscope in the sign of Cancer and malefic Rahu is placed in the seventh house of this horoscope in the sign of Capricorn, the native may face problems. The native under the combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may start facing problems soon after his marriage and such problems may intensify with the passage of time. These problems may ultimately break the marriage of the native after a making him suffer for a significant period of time and he may settle in his second marriage only.

At the same time, if malefic retrograde Venus is placed in the seventh house of this horoscope in the sign of Capricorn along with malefic Rahu; and malefic Mercury also joins this combination in the seventh house of this horoscope when all other planets are placed in the already mentioned houses of this horoscope, the equation may become much more negative. The native troubled by such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planet have to face more than one broken marriage and he may settle in his third or fourth marriage only, or such native may not get married after his second or third failed marriage and he may remain single for the rest of his life.

Apart from this, Pitra Dosh formed in the ninth house of a horoscope can trouble the native with many other types of problems depending on the overall tone of his horoscope. Vedic astrology is equipped with many remedies that can reduce the strength of Pitra Dosh formed in a horoscope. These remedies include the application of gemstones, yantras, poojas and charities. Doing suitable remedies can certainly help reduce the strength of this defect and the native may witness better or much better results in the spheres of his life, which are affected by Pitra Dosh in his horoscope.

Pitra Dosh in the eighth house can affect the lifespan of the natives in an adverse way and accordingly the natives under the malefic influence of this type of Pitra Dosh are likely to have lifespan; shorter or much shorter than the lifespan of an average person. The reduction in the lifespan of different natives under the impact of such Pitra Dosh depends on the strength of this defect in their horoscopes, as well as on the overall tone of the horoscopes of these natives. In cases where such Pitra Dosh is medium in strength, the natives may die anytime after their age of 56, depending on their overall horoscopes.

If such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type in a horoscope, the native under its impact may die before his age of 48. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other life reducing planets in a horoscope, the native under its impact may die young or very young on account of various reasons depending on the overall tone of his horoscope.

Some natives under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may face serious injuries on account of accidents or in acts of sudden or planned violence against them. Here again, the quantum of such injuries depends on the strength of this defect as well as on the overall horoscopes of these natives. If such Pitra Dosh is medium in strength and it is supported by other malefic planets in a horoscope, the native under its impact may lose a limb in an accident or he may sustain a serious injury in such accident. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type, the native under its impact may die at a young age, in an accident or in an act of violence.

For example, if Pitra Dosh is formed in a horoscope due to the presence of malefic Mars in the eighth house of a horoscope in the sign of Aries along with malefic exalted Sun, the native may die in an accident. The native troubled by such Pitra Dosh may die in an accident or in an act of violence; anytime after his age of 55. At the same time, if malefic retrograde debilitated Mercury is placed in the seventh house of this horoscope in the sign of Pisces, malefic Rahu is placed in the third house of this horoscope in the sign of Scorpio and malefic Ketu is placed in the ninth house of this horoscope in the sign of Taurus when all other planets are placed in the already mentioned houses of this horoscope, the problem may aggravate.

The native under the combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may die anytime during his age of 42 and 50, in an accident or in an act of violence. If malefic retrograde Saturn is placed in the third house of this horoscope in the sign of Scorpio along with malefic Rahu; and malefic debilitated Moon also joins this combination in the third house, the native may suffer more. The combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may kill this native in an accident or in an act of violence, anytime after his age of 27.

Some other natives under the impact of such Pitra Dosh may suffer from various types of health problems and diseases, where the quantum of such problems depends on the overall horoscopes of these natives. If such Pitra Dosh is strong in a horoscope, it can afflict the native with a serious disease which may trouble him till the end of his life and which may significantly reduce his lifespan. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type in a horoscope, the native under its impact may get afflicted with a fatal disease which may kill him at a young or very young age.

The formation of Pitra Dosh in the eighth house can also cause problems in the marriage of the native due to which some natives under its impact may witness many types of problems before and after their marriages, as indicated by their overall horoscope. Such Pitra Dosh can delay the marriages of some natives due to which these native may not get married till late or very late, depending on their overall horoscopes. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type in a horoscope, the native may not get married till his age of 41 or he may not get married at all.

Considering an example, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic exalted Mercury in the eighth house of a horoscope in the sign of Virgo along with Sun, the native may witness delay in his marriage. The native troubled by such Pitra Dosh may not get married till his age of 35 as his marriage may get delayed due to various reasons depending on the rest of his horoscope. At the same time, if malefic Saturn is placed in the seventh house of this horoscope in the sign of Leo, malefic Rahu is placed in the third house of this horoscope in the sign of Aries and malefic Ketu is placed in the ninth house of this horoscope in the sign of Libra when all other malefic planets are placed in the already mentioned houses of this horoscope, the equation may become much more negative.

As a result, the native under the combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may not get married till his age of 41 and he may also have to suffer from a broken engagement. If in the same horoscope, debilitated Venus is placed in the eighth house in the sign of Virgo along with malefic exalted Mercury and Sun when all other planets are placed in the already mentioned houses, the problem may intensify. This is due to the fact that the affliction of malefic exalted Mercury to Sun and debilitated Venus may form double Pitra Dosh in this horoscope, as Venus is the lord of the ninth house in this example. As a result, the native troubled by such double Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may not get married till his age of 48 or he may not get married at all.

Some other natives under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may not witness much delay in their marriages but they may face problems after their marriages. The type of problems as well as the quantum of problems experienced by different natives of this type depends on the strength of such Pitra Dosh, as well as on the overall horoscopes of these natives. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type in a horoscope, the native may have to face more than one broken marriage on account of serious problems in such marriages.

For example, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Mars in the eighth house of a horoscope in the sign of Gemini along with Moon, malefic Rahu is placed in the sixth house of this horoscope in the sign of Aries and malefic Ketu is placed in the twelfth house of this horoscope in the sign of Libra, the native may face this problem. The native troubled by such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may face serious differences of opinion with his wife and such differences may eventually break his marriage. At the same time, if malefic Venus is placed in the sixth house of this horoscope in the sign of Aries along with malefic Rahu when all other planets are placed in the already mentioned houses of this horoscope, the problem may aggravate. The native under the combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may witness more than one broken marriage due to serious problems in such marriages, unless there is a strong marriage saving planet in his horoscope.

Apart from this, Pitra Dosh formed in the eighth house of a horoscope can trouble the native with many other types of problems depending on the overall tone of his horoscope. Vedic astrology is equipped with many remedies that can reduce the strength of Pitra Dosh formed in a horoscope. These remedies include the application of gemstones, yantras, poojas and charities. Doing suitable remedies can certainly help reduce the strength of this defect and the native may witness better or much better results in the spheres of his life, which are affected by Pitra Dosh in his horoscope.

When Sun or the lord of the ninth house is placed in the seventh house of a horoscope and it is afflicted by a malefic planet which is also placed in the seventh house, Pitra Dosh is formed in the seventh house of such horoscope. Pitra Dosh in the seventh house can cause many types of problems for the native under its impact, depending on its strength and on the overall horoscope of the native.

Since the seventh house of a horoscope primarily signifies the affairs related to the marriage of the native, the presence of Pitra Dosh in this house of a horoscope can trouble the native with many types of problems which may come before or after his marriage, depending on the overall tone of his horoscope. Such Pitra Dosh can delay the marriages of some natives under its impact due to which these natives may not get married till late in their lives and such delay may prolong with the addition of other negative planets to the horoscopes of these natives. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets in a horoscope, the native under its impact may not get married till very late or he may not get married at all.

For example, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Saturn and Sun in the seventh house of a horoscope in the sign of Pisces, the native may witness this problem. The native suffering from such Pitra Dosh may not get married till his age of 35 and his marriage may get delayed on account of various reasons, depending on his overall horoscope. For instance, if Venus is placed in the fifth house of this horoscope in the sign of Capricorn, malefic Ketu is placed in the seventh house of this horoscope in the sign of Pisces along with malefic Saturn and Sun; and malefic Rahu is placed in the first house of this horoscope, the native may face this delay due to a love affair.

The native under the combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may fall in love with a woman and this relationship may continue for as long as a period of seven years or even more. However, such love relationship may not convert into a marriage till this native’s age of 36 or even more due to various reasons; and hence the marriage of the native may get delayed. At the same time, if malefic Jupiter is placed in the twelfth house of this horoscope in the sign of Leo and malefic exalted Mars is placed in the fifth house of this horoscope in the sign of Capricorn along with Venus when all other planets are placed in the already mentioned houses of this horoscope, the problem may intensify.

This is due to the fact that malefic exalted Mars may afflict Venus in the fifth house and this combination may form one more Pitra Dosh in the horoscope as Venus is the lord of the ninth house in this horoscope. As a result, the native under the combined effect of such double Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may have a love relationship which may continue for more than seven years but which may not convert into marriage, as the lover of this native may ultimately walk out of this love relationship. As a result, the marriage of this native may first get delayed due to the continuance of such love affair and once this relationship is broken, the native may not prepare himself for marriage, for many years to follow. Hence this native troubled by such double Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may not get married till his age of 41 or he may not get married throughout his life.

Some other natives under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may not witness much delay in their marriages but they may have to face many types of problems after their marriages. It should be noted that the problems caused due to the formation of Pitra Dosh in the seventh house generally start soon after the marriages of the natives, when this defect is formed due to the presence of Sun and one or more than one malefic planet in the seventh house. However, if such Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of lord of the ninth house and one or more than one malefic planet in the seventh house, these problems may appear early or late in the marriages of these natives, depending on the planet which is the lord of the ninth house in a particular example.

This is due to the fact that Sun is a fiery and quick planet; and whatever positive or negative results it may indicate in any house of a horoscope, it doesn’t waste much time in most cases; and it starts showing those results at the earliest. Hence Pitra Dosh formed due to the presence of Sun in the seventh house may start giving its malefic effects soon after the marriage. Expanding the same concept, Pitra Dosh formed in the seventh house of a horoscope due to the presence of malefic Mars and Sun can prove to be one of the quickest, when it comes to cause problems in the marriage of the native under its impact. This is because, just like Sun, Mars is also a fiery and quick planet which believes in delivering its good or bad results at a fast pace.

Hence Pitra Dosh formed in the seventh house due to the malefic combination of Mars and Sun can prove a very fast type of Pitra Dosh in delivering bad result related to the marriage of the native, as both the planets involved in the formation of such Pitra Dosh are the quickest among navagraha. As a result, the native may witness problems in his marriage soon after it happens; and he may face a broken marriage within a period of one year or even within a period of six months of such marriage. In an extreme case of its type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other marriage breaking planets, the native under its malefic impact may suffer from two or three broken marriages and all such marriages may fail within a year or two after they happen.

On the other hand, if Pitra Dosh is formed in the seventh house due to the presence of the lord of the ninth house along with one or more than one malefic planet, the pace of the malefic results delivered by such Pitra Dosh depends on the planets which form such Pitra Dosh. For example, if such Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Rahu or Ketu along with Mars when Mars is the lord of the ninth house, the problems may once again appear soon after the marriage, as all these planets are fast. However, if such Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Saturn along with another planet which is the lord of the ninth house, the problems may start rising comparatively late after the marriage; and they may also start getting stronger at a slow pace.

The slowest type of Pitra Dosh may be formed due to the presence of malefic Saturn and Jupiter or due to presence of malefic Jupiter and Saturn in the seventh house of a horoscope where Jupiter is the lord of the ninth house in the first case and Saturn is the lord of the ninth house in the second case. Pitra Dosh formed in the seventh house of a horoscope due to a malefic combination of Saturn and Jupiter may start causing problems in the marriage of the native at a slow or very slow pace. Such native may start feeling uneasy after a period of couple of years or even more, this uneasiness may start building at a slow pace and by the time it leads to a broken marriage, the native may have spent five years or more in such marriage.

In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type, the native may witness a troubled marriage at such slow pace that the divorce may happen after fourteen years of such troubled marriage or the native may not get divorced, even after this period. Such native may either separate from his wife and the two of them may live alone without officially being divorced for the rest of their lives; or such divorce may come; many years after the native and his wife separate. This is due to the fact that Saturn and Jupiter are slow in giving their results whether such results are good or bad.

Hence the formation of any type of defect by a combination of these two planets may deliver its bad results at a slow pace; and over a long period of time. This is why I put so much emphasis on analyzing the overall tone of a horoscope in question, as much may change with even a small change in such horoscope.  For instance, a native suffering from Pitra Dosh in the seventh house formed by a malefic combination of Mars, Rahu and Sun may witness two or three broken marriages till his age of 40. On the other hand, a native suffering from Pitra Dosh in the seventh house formed by a malefic combination of Saturn and Jupiter may not even get out of his first marriage till his age of 40, though the quantum of problems faced by him in such marriage may be more than the quantum of problems faced by the native of the first type, in his two or three broken marriages.

Apart from this, Pitra Dosh formed in the seventh house of a horoscope can trouble the native with many other types of problems depending on the overall tone of his horoscope. Vedic astrology is equipped with many remedies that can reduce the strength of Pitra Dosh formed in a horoscope. These remedies include the application of gemstones, yantras, poojas and charities. Doing suitable remedies can certainly help reduce the strength of this defect and the native may witness better or much better results in the spheres of his life, which are affected by Pitra Dosh in his horoscope.

Saturn signifies the people engaged in labor industry, workers doing low paying jobs to earn their livelihood like construction workers and other types of labor workers, people dealing and working in real estate business and many other types of people, professions and things. Saturn also signifies beggars, crippled persons, blind persons, carpenters and other people dealing and working in wooden goods; common public or common people dealing in ordinary jobs to earn their livelihood, scientists, analysts and researchers; IT professionals, engineers, judges and some administrators requiring the ability to judge and decide, people possessing paranormal powers or people dealing in the science of the occult and many other things, professions and people.

Saturn also signifies qualities like discipline, meditation, perseverance, spiritualism, sincerity, the ability to analyze facts in great details, the qualities like detachment and dutifulness among many other qualities. The natives who as their ancestors have committed bad karmas or crimes related to the significances of Saturn or the natives who have misused the abilities given by Saturn in their previous lives are likely to have this type of Pitra Dosh in their horoscopes of this life. Such bad karmas form karmic debt of Saturn due to which Saturn becomes malefic for these native as it needs to punish these natives for the bad things done by them, related to his domain.

When Saturn is malefic in a horoscope and it afflicts Sun by virtue of its placement in some house of the horoscope along with Sun, Pitra Dosh is formed in the horoscope due to malefic Saturn. Similarly, if malefic and fully active Saturn is placed in the ninth house of a horoscope or it is placed with the lord of the ninth house in a horoscope, Pitra Dosh is formed in the horoscope. Pitra Dosh formed by Saturn can trouble the native with many types of problems which may differ from person to person depending on the overall tone of their horoscopes.

Common or ordinary people, servants and people engaging in other such types of jobs are some of the strongest significances of Saturn and accordingly the natives who have troubled, bothered or hurt such people in their past lives are likely to have this type of Pitra Dosh in their horoscopes of present lives. For example, the presence of this type of Pitra Dosh in the fourth house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors willingly and continuously troubled labor workers or construction workers. This formed karmic debt of Saturn and as a result, malefic Saturn forms this type of Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of the native which can make him suffer from many types of problems depending on the overall tone of his horoscope.

Some natives under the impact of such Pitra Dosh have to spend extra money towards the construction of their residential houses due to the problems caused by construction labor which may delay the house building process and which can increase the expenses considerably. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type in a horoscope, the native under its impact may engage in construction business like he may become a building contractor; and he may have to face serious issues due to his construction labor. The labor working for this native under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may have serious disagreements with this native and they may go on a strike in the middle of a very important and big project undertaken by this native. Hence the native under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may have to face big financial losses as the project may get delayed a lot, and he may even have to lose such project, which may cause even bigger problems.

The presence of this type of Pitra Dosh in a horoscope can also indicate that the native or his ancestors had troubled and tortured their servants in their past lives and they had not duly paid their servants for the jobs done by them. This formed karmic debt of Saturn and as a result, malefic Saturn forms Pitra Dosh in the present life horoscope of the native, which can trouble him on account of problems coming through servants and other people belonging to his category. For instance, some natives under the impact of such Pitra Dosh may have to suffer from problems like their servants running away with their belongings or their servants causing physical injuries to them and then running away with their valuables.

The types of problems as well as the quantum of such problems faced by a native suffering from such Pitra Dosh depend on type and quantum of bad karmas committed by this native in his past life, towards the people belonging to this category. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets, the native under its malefic impact may suffer from very serious types of problems. A servant of this native may plan a robbery in the house of this native with the help of other people and during the process of robbery, the native may get seriously injured as he may become aware of such robbery and he may try to stop it. If the running time is very bad and there is no grace saving planet in the horoscope of such native suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh, he may get killed by his servant during a robbery, as he may try to stop him from robbing his house; or such servant may intentionally murder him in order to settle some type of score with him.

Common public is another strong significance of Saturn and the natives who have committed bad karmas or crimes towards common public in their past lives are also likely to have this type of Pitra Dosh in their horoscopes. For example, the formation of this type of Pitra Dosh in the tenth house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors held a position of power and authority with the government and they were supposed to serve the public by virtue of that position. However, instead of serving the public, they misused their power and authority; and they troubled the public or extracted money from them in forceful manners during their previous lives. This formed karmic debt of Saturn and accordingly malefic Saturn forms this type of Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of this native, which can make him suffer from many types of problems depending on the overall tone of his horoscope.

For example, if Pitra Dosh is formed in the tenth house of a horoscope due to the presence of malefic Saturn in the tenth house of a horoscope in the sign of Sagittarius along with malefic Sun; the native may not find a permanent profession. The native troubled by such Pitra Dosh may only find temporary jobs and he may also have to remain jobless between such job changes. If such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type, the native under its malefic impact may have to remain jobless for periods of more than one year, many times in his life. Such native may have to suffer from poor financial equation due to not earning regularly from his profession.

Considering one more possibility, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Saturn in the tenth house of a horoscope in the sign of Gemini along with Sun; malefic Rahu is also placed in the tenth house of this horoscope and malefic Ketu is placed in the fourth house of this horoscope in the sign of Sagittarius; the native may face different type of problems. The native troubled by such Pitra Dosh may get involved in a scandal related to his profession, he may have to face a lot of public disgrace due to his involvement in such scandal, he may have to face a court case and he may even have to spend significant amount of time in prison by virtue of such scandal.

Some other natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may become beggars and they may have to depend on common public in order to earn their bread and butter. This is once again a balancing act of the nature, which shows that the people who make other people beg for the things that they duly deserve as their rights, may suffer from this type of Pitra Dosh in their next lives; and they may have to actually beg from the same type of people, in order to meet their day to day requirements. Similarly, some other natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may have to face the rage of the common public due to many reasons; and they may suffer the amount of damage through such rage, as indicated by their overall horoscopes.

In an extreme case of its type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type in a horoscope, the native may get seriously injured or he may even die in an act of public violence against him. This native troubled by such Pitra Dosh may get exposed in such a shameful act that the common public may get enraged, they may attack this native and he may get killed during such act of violence. Such native may not only die during such violence, he may also leave great amount of shame and disgrace attached to his name, after his death, due to the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh.

Moving on to some other possibilities, the presence of this type of Pitra Dosh in the third house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors may have made their brothers or friends work like servants for them by misusing the power and authority possessed by them. Some of these natives may even have snatched wealth belonging to their brothers, either by force or by means of deception. The brother of such a native may have suffered a lot due to his bad conducts and this formed karmic debt of Saturn on the native.

As a result, malefic Saturn forms Pitra Dosh in the third house of the present life horoscope of this native, which can trouble him on account of many types of problems coming from his brothers and friends. For instance, some natives under the impact of such Pitra Dosh may have to suffer from betrayals or deceptions from their brothers and friends; whereas some other natives of this type may have to lose their wealth and properties to their brothers. The brothers or friends of these natives may deceive them in order to grab their wealth and property; and these natives may have to suffer a lot due to such deceptions.

In an extreme case of its type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets, the native under its malefic impact may get killed by his brother, as his brother may want to grab this native’s share of ancestral property or he may kill him for some other type of benefit related to property. For example, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Saturn in the third house of a horoscope in the sign of Virgo along with malefic Jupiter which is the lord of ninth house in this case; and another Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic retrograde Mercury and Sun in the eighth house of this horoscope in the sign of Aquarius; the native may suffer from such extreme results.

The native under the malefic impact of such double Pitra Dosh may get killed by his own brother, as his brother may want to grab his share of ancestral property. It should be noted that the native suffering from such double Pitra Dosh is likely to be killed by means of a planned murder; and not in an act of heat. The brother of this native may kill him, he may escape the punishment for such murder and he may also grab his share of ancestral property. As always, this is a karmic settlement from the past life; and the native is only paying back for what he had done in his past life, as one of his ancestors.

Real estate and immovable properties are other significances of Saturn and the natives who have committed bad karmas or crimes related to these things in their previous lives are also likely to suffer from this type of Pitra Dosh in their present lives. For example, the presence of this type of Pitra Dosh in the twelfth house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors had forcibly grabbed the lands of many weak people and such people had suffered a lot. This formed karmic debt of Saturn on the native and as a result, malefic Saturn forms this type of Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of the native, which can make him suffer from similar type of problems.

Some natives under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may remain poor throughout their lives and hence they may never become capable of purchasing their own houses. These natives may also have to face many types of problems related to rented houses; like some of them may be forcibly moved out of their houses rented by them, even when their contracts are valid; as their landlords may need such houses. Hence these natives under the impact of such Pitra Dosh may suffer from many problems at once, due to such forced vacations imposed on them. However, this is only a mild type of damage that such Pitra Dosh may cause; and a lot more can happen to such natives.

The quantum of punishment imposed by such Pitra Dosh on the native under its impact depends on the quantum of bad karmas committed by the native in his past life, as one of his ancestors. In cases where such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type, the natives under its malefic impact may witness forced possessions and seizers of their properties due to which they may have to lose such properties. For example, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Saturn with Sun and Mercury in the twelfth house of a horoscope in the sign of Aquarius; malefic Ketu is placed in the fourth house of this horoscope in the sign of Gemini and malefic Rahu is placed in the tenth house of this horoscope in the sign of Sagittarius, the native may face such problem. Invaders or land mafia may forcibly possess and seize the property of this native and he may have to suffer a lot due to the loss of such property.

However, even this is not the maximum amount of punishment that this type of Pitra Dosh can impose on a native under its impact. In an extreme case of its type when such Pitra Dosh is very strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type, the native may get killed in an act of violence, while trying to stop the people who may want to forcibly seize a property owned by him. In another extreme case of this type of Pitra Dosh, the native under its malefic impact may have to live a big part of his life in refugee camps or asylums, completely on the mercy of other people, due to various reasons.  This is once again a karmic settlement from past life, which gives the message that if you grab the lands of other people by force, you may remain homeless in your next life.

Judges and other people having authorities of the same kind who have misused their positions of power and authority in their previous lives are also likely to suffer from this type of Pitra Dosh. It should be noted that a judge is considered as a direct representative of the god as his job is to bring justice to people. Therefore, when a judge intentionally delivers injustice due to any type of reason like money or favor; it becomes a crime of a very high degree. For the people who find this fact difficult to understand, let me explain it with help of an example.

If a person is charged with the offence of a murder and the judge intentionally acquits him of such murder on account of any reason, such judge is guilty of committing a crime equal to or even worse than a murder. This is due to the fact that by acquitting such criminal, the judge has become an accomplice in his crime, as he has joined such criminal. Hence he is guilty of the committing the crime of a murder. Moving on, if such criminal acquitted by this judge commits yet another murder or more than one murder, the judge is guilty of those murders also.

This is due to the fact that if the judge had put this criminal behind bars by convicting him for the first murder, he may not have killed other innocent people. Hence the judge in this case becomes a share holder of all the crimes committed by such criminal, after being acquitted by him. For this reason, the job of a judge of any type is a very sensitive job as it can earn him highest degree of karmic rewards and it can also bring him the worst types of punishments, depending on the way he discharges his duties.

Coming back to the example, the natives who have intentionally delivered injustice as judges in their previous lives are likely to suffer from this type of Pitra Dosh. For example, the presence of this type of Pitra Dosh in the sixth house of a horoscope can indicate that the native as one of his ancestors held the post of some type of judge in his previous life and he intentionally denied justice to a number of people. The sufferings of such people formed karmic debt of Saturn and as a result, Saturn may form this type of Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of the native in his present life. Such Pitra Dosh can trouble the native on account of serious and life threatening diseases which may keep causing severe physical pains to the native and which may claim his life in the end. Some other natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may get convicted in a false case and they may have to serve a prison sentence of many years.

Looking at some other possibilities, the presence of this type of Pitra Dosh in the sixth, eighth, tenth, eleventh or twelfth house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors were criminals in their past lives and they troubled, hurt or killed many people. This formed karmic debt of Saturn on the native and as a result, malefic Saturn may form this type of Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of the native, which may trouble him in many ways, depending on his overall horoscope. The natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may suffer from serious diseases, they may become physically handicapped or they may have to face many other types of problems, depending on their overall horoscope. In an extreme case of this type, the native suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may get killed due to a fatal disease, by means of a capital punishment, by virtue of a planned attack on his life or in a horrible accident. Some natives killed because of the impact of very strong Pitra Dosh of this type may not even receive their after death rituals; as even their bodies may not be found.

Similarly, the formation of this type of Pitra Dosh due to malefic Saturn can indicate many other types of bad karmas related to the significances of Saturn which were done by the native or his ancestors in their past lives.
