Pitru means ancestor. When a person's negative behavior hurts or tormented his ancestors, his soul curses the person, which is known as Pitru Dosha. This means that due to the curse of the fathers, the obstruction of the path of destiny is called Pitridosh.

For example, if we cause pain to our elders like Baba-Daadi (grand father-grand mother), parents, maternal grandparents, Teachers,Masters or other superior people, mentally, physically,economically or spiritually, then surely their soul is hurt. When the soul is unhappy, the person who is directly or indirectly hurting with negative behavior is cursed. Due to which his fate is blocked and it is called Pitridosh.

Keep in mind here that if a person today hurts his parents or superior people with his negative behavior, it is not at all the case that he should be punished for his actions immediately. The reality is that today's negative behavior or curse from the respected people is collected in the person's accumulations(Sanchit) and in time it becomes clear as Pitradosh. There is no doubt that Pitra Dosh is a terrible defect but it is definitely wrong to believe Pitra Dosh as the only reason for every failure. Although there are many types of Pitra dosha and it is also clearly indicated in the birth chart. It means that by analysing the birth chart , it can be clarified what kind of suffering or misfortune a person has to suffer due to the curse of fathers. As such it is not necessary that every person has to bear the same kind of loss from Pitradosh.

It is possible that someone is worried about health, some is about money, some is about a child, some about brother etc. problems and obstacles are determined by the planet.
