问：什么是Pitru Dosha (祖先的业债），它对我们的日常生活有何影响以及如何解决它？
古儒德夫 诗丽诗丽若威香卡 I Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar：
Pitru Dosha 是源自于对父母或祖先的折磨。如果孩子折磨父母，不了解父母，那就叫做Pitru Dosha。父母如此充满爱的把你养育成人，承受着痛苦，他们给了你美好的生活，他们一直在你身边并帮助你成长。你没有给予他们爱，反而造成他们的痛苦。这就被成为 Pitru Dosha。但是我告诉你，你的静心，你在灵修的道路上，保持一颗洁净的心和无私奉献的服务，在某种程度上会消除在你生命里的Pitru Dosha。去看到，
Pitru Dosha is torturing our parents or ancestors. The children torturing them, does not understand them. Parents raised you up with so much love, they had given you a good life, they are being by your side and help you grow up, and then you inflict them a lot of pain, is called Pitru Dosha. That can happened to several generations. But your meditation, your being on spiritual path, keeping a clean heart and doing service at least to some degree in life will just eliminates all these Pitru Dosha.
Sometimes people are miserable not just because you did something to them, they are miserable because of their ignorance
他们期望从你身上得到你可能无法做到的事。那你不会得到Pitru Dosha。但当你做得到却没有去做而造成他们极度痛苦时，就会发生这种情况。当你由于自私的原因有意对父母造成痛苦时，那就是Pitru Dosha。
They expect something from you that you may not able to deliver, then you don’t get Pitru Dosha. When Pitru Dosha happened, when there are really pain by something that you could do and you don’t do it. Are you intentionally inflicted pain on the parents, due to your selfish reasons.
那会怎样？ 后代将有问题。你的孩子会给你带来麻烦。它的影响是-孩子天生有一些特殊需求；一些残障。这些就是Pitru Dosha的特征。在你祖先的某一代，父母对孩子非常的不满，因此现在你也会为自己的孩子感到不快乐。这就是因果定律。但是有一种补救的方法，那就是静心。 “ Om Namah Shivaya”的唱诵也有帮助。这就是为什么它被称为摩诃梵咒（Maha Mantra）。它可以净化任何这些督夏（Doshas）。“ Om Namah Shivaya”不仅是属于一种宗教。它是通用的，适合所有人。
Then what will happened? The children or progeny will have problems. The same thing that your children will give you problem, that is what you call Pitru Dosha. The impact of it, the children are born with special needs, some deformative. These is all the sign of Pitru Dosha, because their parents or ancestors was very unhappy with their own kids and so you will have to become unhappy with your own kids. This is a law of Karma, but there is a remedy of it, the remedy is meditation, “Om Namah Shivaya” chant. That’s why it call Maha Mantra, it can rectify any of these doshas or any of thoese karmas. That’s why the chant is very powerful, the chant is universal for everybody. “Namah Shivaya” represents the five elements of the creation – earth, water, fire, air, ether. The “ether” is for everybody.
