By the name itself, Pitra Dosha, though believed by many as the curse of the ancestors, is not a curse actually, but it is a Karmic Debt of the ancestors which the person having Pitra Dosh in his horoscope is supposed to pay. It is the bad karma of a person, and it brings disgrace to the good and fair name of Ancestors. Then the false astrological interpretation says the ancestors are cursing. Pitra Dosha analysis says a person having this Yoga in his horoscope is paying the Karmic debts of his ancestors in his life time till it is fully cleared. Therefore, the ancestors are themselves cursed. So, our duties are to conduct the Pitra Dosha rituals to free his from this debt. Joblessness, no business success, addictions to alcohol, tensions, aggression, miscarriages, delay in marriages, etc. are some hurdles that the person is suffering from as part of Pitra Dosha effects.
