The ninth house in the natal chart is the house of fortunes or the house of father and manes. A conjugation of Sun and Rahu in this house forms the Pitra Dosha or Pitru Dosh, which is known to remove auspiciousness from the house. This Dosha is also formed if a family member dies unnatural death or if people do not offer their respects to the souls of their deceased loved ones.
Pitra Dosha may bring sorrows in the life of an individual in the form of money loss, household conflicts and inability to get a child or a job or professional difficulties. In Pitru Dosh, an individual gets delayed support of his luck and ends up with much struggle to achieve success on professional front.
As per the Hindu scriptures, an individual should pay respects to his manes before the worship of his God, as they hold greater position.
Pitra Dosh Upay:
The remedies to remove Pitra Dosha include performing of Pinddaan, which is a ritual followed to pacify the spirits of their deceased parents on the date of death of manes. Worshiping the Peepal tree is also known to remove Pitra Dosha from an individual's natal chart.
Other Pitra Dosh removing 'upay' includes Pitra sukt pooja, which is done on 'Amavasya' (No Moon) and 'Chathurdashi' of every month. In addition, chanting Gayatri Mantra, looking at the sun during sunrise strengthens the position of Sun in the natal chart and helps reducing the impact of Pitra Dosha.
Pitra Dosh Nivaran Mantra:
"Om Pitrabhyah devatabhyah mahayogibhyech cha, Namah sawaha swadhyaye cha nityamev namah"
