How to please ancestors on Amavasya- What is Pitra Dosh?

 When a person's final rites are not performed properly after their death, family members have to bear the curse of Pitru Dosh for generations. Additionally, cutting down peepal, neem, or banyan trees also leads to this dosh.

In this context, having Pitru Dosh in one's horoscope leads to problems in progeny, job, and business. Disputes among family members become a common occurrence. Marital issues persist, and various obstacles arise after marriage.

Performing puja, offering food, and lighting lamps in honor of one's ancestors on Amavasya brings great benefits. It is believed that this pleases ancestors, and they bestow blessings upon their descendants.

To mitigate financial difficulties on Amavasya, chant the Gayatri Mantra 108 times while holding a Tulsi (holy basil) mala. This practice is said to alleviate financial issues and bring prosperity.

Light a ghee lamp in the northeastern corner of your home during the evening of Amavasya. Use a red thread wick for the lamp. This is believed to invite the goddess of wealth, Lakshmi, into your home and dispel negative energies and Vastu doshas.

Lighting a lamp with ghee has several positive effects: it pleases deities, purifies the environment, and is believed to attract the presence of goddess Lakshmi, bringing prosperity and happiness to the household.

Adding cloves to a lamp and lighting it in the morning during Amavasya is believed to remove obstacles and negative energies from one's life.

Reciting the mantra  "Ram Rameti Rameti Rame Rame Manorame, Sahasra Naama Tattulyam Rama Naama Varanane"[ राम रामेति रामेति रमे रामे मनोरमे। सहस्त्रनाम तत्तुल्यं रामनाम वरानने।।]  on amavasya  is believed to help overcome difficulties and bring happiness to life.

Performing mantra chanting helps increase energy levels in the body. Increased energy promotes physical well-being, which leads to a longer life, benefiting others. Mantra chanting can be performed using the five vital breaths, five senses, seven chakras, and the tongue.
