#Pitru paksha and Swadha stotram:
As per Hindu traditions,3 major Rina which we are born with are Dev Rina, Rishi Rina and Pitru Rina.
We are born in a family as per our prarabdha and are,therefore indebted to our parent / forefathers for providing us a body to experience karma
In this life, we are supposed to repay our debts in order to have a fulfilling and meaningful life. There are combinations in the horoscope that can indicate Pitru Rina/ pitru shraap/ pitru Dosha. #jyotish #astrology #AstrologyFacts #pitrupaksha
It is said that Pitru dosha can occur if forefathers upto 7 th generation on father's side and upto 4th generation on the mother's side have died unnatural death/ early demise . Also, if their last rites are not performed properly then it can cause pitru Dosha.
