The dark fortnight which falls in the Hindu calendar month of Bhadrapad (September) is known as Pitr-Paksha or Mahalay Paksha all over the Hindu World. Shraddh is the name of the ceremonies performed by relatives to help the departed soul in Pitr-Paksha. The word Shraadh comes from Shraddha or devotion. If your horoscope has this pitra dosh you should do some karmas on this time to remove or get relief from this dosha. We see pitradosha from the ninth house. The ninth house is the house of fortune in the birth chart. This house has great importance because this house is also known as the house of father and manes. If Sun and Rahu form conjunction in this house then Pitra Dosha is formed in the birth chart, or if this house has a malefic effects then also this dosha occur. Pitra Dosh is not a curse of the Ancestors, but it is a Karmic Debt of the ancestors which the person having Pitra Dosh in his horoscope is supposed to pay. In simple words a Pitra Dosh is formed in the horoscope of a person due to bad Karmas or bad deeds done by the Ancestors of that person and this person is supposed to pay that Karmic debt by suffering the punishments decided for those debts
The Lord of death, Yamaraja enables the dead ones to come to earth and receive offers from the descendants. So this is a time when you can perform pujas to get rid of this dosha and get relief from the obsticles you are getting in your life.
If found Pitra Dosha in a chart, inspite of regular remedies, In the days of shradhas (the lunal paksha dedicated to the forefathers), the food is offered to crows, street dogs & sweepers.
Pinda-Daan to be given at shastra specified places with specific rituals.
