Among many doshas in Vedic Astrology, Pitra Dosha is highlighted widely. The dosha is formed in a horoscope due to a few certain malefic planetary combinations. The person who is born with this yoga is compelled to face uncounted and sudden challenges and obstacles in personal and professional realms. Astrologer Shrijit Chatterjee, one of the top astrologers in Kolkata, shared some of the precious information on Pitra Dosha through this blog post. 

Now why a person is born with Pitra or Pitru Dosha? What are the reasons behind it? What are the astrological remedies to nullify the effects of Pitra Dosha? To get answers to all the questions, read this blog carefully.  

What is Pitra Dosha? 

To get rid of the bad effects of Pitra Dosha, we need to understand it first. Let us see how Astrologer Shrijit has defined it here for our convenience. There is a misconception that this dosha is formed due to the curses imposed on us by our forefathers. However, this is not the truth. Yes, Pitra Dosha is imposed on us due to the Karmic debts of our forefathers. To put it in simple language, the bad Karma or sins our ancestors had committed from past lives; in exchange for that Karma, we are held accountable to repay and compelled to go through various challenges and punishments being their descendants.  

How Pitra Dosha is Formed in a Kundali? 

The presence of Pitra Dosha can be defined in many ways in a birth chart. Let us come by with the planets and planetary combinations that are held responsible for forming Pitra Dosha in a chart. 

  • Sun, Moon, Saturn, Rahu, Ketu, 9th house, 2nd house, 4th house, and 5th house play a significant role in indicating pitra dosha. 

Time to decipher the combinations/conjunctions among houses/planets to understand pitra dosha. 

  • In a horoscope, if the ninth house or the lord of the 9th house is in the affliction of the Rahu or Ketu, Pitra Dosha is formed. 
  • If the Sun and/or Jupiter is in close conjunction or aspect of Rahu or Ketu, it creates Pitra Dosha. 
  • If Sun and Rahu, or Sun and Saturn are in the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 9th, or 10th house in the birth chart, it forms this dosha. 
  • When Rahu is in the 1st house and the ascendant lord is in the 6th, 8th, or 12th house, it forms Pitra Dosha.  
  • If Jupiter, the natural ninth house lord comes under the combination of Rahu or Ketu or Saturn in the 9th house, pitra dosha is seen in a horoscope.  

These are a few of the many combinations in Pitra dosha. In BPHS, 14 types of Pitra Dosha are mentioned.
