In Pitrupaksha, chant name of Datta, pray and perform Shraddha ritual

 

1. Chanting the name of Datta

‘Currently, many people are suffering from undesirable forces. As this problem is increasing in the Pitrupaksha (From 3rd to 17th September 2020), chant ‘Om Om Shri Gurudev Datta Om Om’ at least for 1 hour every day during this period.

Those who perform spiritual remedies should chant the jap of Datta for at least 1 hour in addition to chant specified for spiritual remedies. While chanting the name of Datta, the tips of all five fingers of both hands should be joined and Nyas should be done at Anahat Chakra and Manipur Chakra.

Those who do not perform spiritual remedies should ensure that Datta’s chant will be performed for at least 1 hour at the time of personal daily chores, bathing, cleaning-seva, etc. However, if they face any distress, they should also chant Datta’s name by sitting.

 

2. Pray to Datta

During the Pitrupaksha, pray to Datta, intermittently during the day, for the protection from the distress caused by the departed ancestors.

 

3. For those of whom it is possible to perform
Shraddha ritual in the Pitru Paksha should definitely do it.

By doing so, not only the distress caused by the departed ancestors would be eliminated, but blessings will also be obtained for spiritual practice.
