1. Could you please guide whether any difference between PITRA DOSHA – SHRAPIT DOSHA – SHRADDHA DOSHA.
2. Could you please guide whether any effective remedies for these doshas.
Thank you all. VGP
Let us think,
What is the meaning of terms in use?
PITRA DOSA: In general terms Pitra dosha could mean harm or disadvantage as a result of bad karma attributable to one’s father or elders in line.
SHRAPIT DOSA: Could imply disadvantage or harm caused due to curse of someone
Shraddha Dosha: also could mean disadvantage as a result of non-performance of last right of a fatherly figures in family lineage.
How to identify the dosa in chart?
Pitra Dosa is a vague term. Various people use this term in any manner they like .
BPHS has described Yoga’s of childlessness due to the curse of the forefathers. Text does not speak of other effects whereas modern understanding is all sort of troubles are attributed to pitra dosa based upon conjunction of sun with Saturn or some other yuti etc.
Some Acharya opine these three belong to same category and Narayan Bali to shraddha is remedy.
We do not subscribe to this blanket coverage. Each of the three dosa are specific dosa found in birth chart and call for definite remedies and affect are also typical.
Let us take an example: a person has Shraddha dosa. This may not be activated till native is with parents but once Native leaves his father or is separated from parent’s dosa may be activated .Life may become hell. There may be failure on career front, business and happiness may be missing. Usually this continues for about twenty years if remedies are not done.
Take another example, person has Jupiter which is afflicted by joining a malefic or two or is under Garha dristi of two or more than two planets. It constitutes a curse on Jupiter that means soul of native is carrying karma from past life , where his action caused anger or sorrow to preceptor/ teacher in one of the previous life. When this curse is activated in this life judged for duration of operation related to ill effect by Mool dasa or Narayan dasa .
Failure in enterprises, misery may be a common happening till that curse affect is withering out.
To end I would like to state here that the remedy of dosha that is found is in this category are second in priority. The attention called for by it is one of the most important remedy to be prescribed to client once panchang dosa [ which has first priority] are absent. The reason is “curses / dosa & Nbahas yoga” acts as a major block to success and happiness in life of a native just if Panchang dosha are not found in horoscope .
Astrologers have standard rules based upon which separate remedies become imperative for native and these are very effective.
For shraddha yoga remedy is naturally uncalled for until native is separated from parents but once trigger appears remedy is a must.
Hope this understanding is helpful to judge the impact of dosa in question.
