Pitra Dosh– In contrast to the misconception of it being the curse from forefathers, Pitra Dosh is actually a karmic debt of the ancestors. It is reflected in the Kundli in a form of malefic planetary combinations and is to be paid by the person having Pitra dosha in his Kundli. To put it simply, Pitra dosh is formed in a person’s horoscope, when his/her ancestors have committed some sin or mistake. So, in exchange for that, the native is held accountable to pay for the wrongdoings of their forefather’s past deeds by going through various punishments.

“Lakshmi” is derived from the Sanskrit elemental form “lakS,” meaning to observe/perceive. This is also synonymous with “laksya,” meaning aim, goal, or objective. Hence Lakshmi represents the goal or objective of one’s life, which includes worldly as well as spiritual prosperity. Lakshmi is also a goddess of purity and divinity. so the wealth or money you will get by worshipping Maa Lakshmi is going to be pure too. You can't have blessings of her when you cheat or loot someone

It may be Rahu dev but not Lakshmi devi

God does not normally interfere in worldly affairs.

Resorting to Prakrti, Nature, which is My own Power, I send forth, again and again, this multitude of beings that are without any freedom, owing to Nature's sway over them. - Gita 9.8 These activities do not in any way bind Me, because I remain detached like one unconcerned in their midst. - Gita 9.9

Under My direction and control, Nature brings out this mighty universe of living and non-living beings. Thus does the wheel of this world revolve. - Gita 9.10
