  • Family reputation gets harmed due to some reason.
  • Plants, animals don’t survive in that house.

If you’re suffering from most of the problems mentioned above, (remember MOST of them, don’t jump to any conclusions, if you related to any two three problems mentioned above), do these upayas/remedies/pooja, on either every Thursday or Amavasya.

Doing it however, on the amavasya of Pitra Paksha, (in 2012, the amavasya of Pitra Paksha, falls on 15th October), then it brings the best results.

Pooja Vidhi:

Sit near Hawan Kund. Every member of the family must keep one coconut and 1 rupee coin with him or her. The head of the family must have a turmeric mala (haldi mala of 108 beads) in his right hand to count the mantra. Other members should have 1 Haldi Gaanth in their left hands and using right hand, they’ll give Aahuti of Samidha. Now everyone do this mantra- Om graam greem graoum sah guruve namah swamha. Do atleast 5 malas Or more. Those who are not doing hawan, they have to say the mantra without ‘swaha’. Chant the mantra loudly. After that, give that haldi gaanth and coin to a temple. Coconut can be thrown in a river or can be given to temple as well. Then make sure to offer food to a Kushta Rogi. It’s great if the whole family does this pooja together. Should include children as well.

Something good will start happening with in 1 year for sure. Try to do hawan daily in pitra paksha, if you can’t do hawan, then daily chant this mantra in Pitra Paksha. But Hawan, must be done on Amavasya for sure ( 15th October 2012).
