In the present day life, all of us are undergoing some pain or other and in order to obliterate it, we rush to either to the so called gurus or astrologers. If anyone can relieve our pains, then the very concept of karma becomes questionable. In general, most of the pains are related to either monetary or marital or profession. We have to understand that Law of Karma is the Supreme Law and it is also known as Law of the Lord. Karmas are to be experienced and we have no escape from karmic afflictions. But using our intellect, we can use our Freewill to spread our sufferings over a period of time, instead of falling into deathlike situations. As we have already discussed repeatedly, further accrual of karmas stop, the moment we realize the Self. Astrology is an ancient science used to foretell certain things in our lives to a certain extent. But nobody can predict accurately, as Law of Karma is Supreme and is considered as Divine Secret and can never be decoded.
Astrological remedies are only psychological in nature and can never stop a particular thing that is already encrypted in our karmic account. Any astrological remedy that is associated with money will never work. Of late, it has become a routine that expensive astrological remedies are suggested like participating in a homa (fire ritual) or other rituals for which lots of money is demanded. A person goes to an astrologer, only when he is in trouble. Demanding money to perform rituals to ward off the evil effects of planets is the worst sin one can think of. This tantamounts to misguiding and misleading an already worn out person, knowing fully well that such remedial measures will not solve the problem. If they can solve the problem, then Law of Karma is obliterated. Instead of performing such rituals by borrowing money, if we are able to affirm all positive things, we can surely get over the difficult times, with ease. There is nothing called ancestral curse (pitṛdoṣa). Our forefathers will never curse us. It is our duty to take care of our parents and grandparents when they are alive. If we don’t we will accrue bad karmas, and not pitṛdoṣa. Further, each soul is bound by its own karmic influence and nobody can curse or inflict other damages to another person.
