Pitru Dosha denotes ancestral affliction in the horoscope that arises due to dissatisfied souls of your departed forefathers. It mainly occurs when the souls of your ancestors did not get peace or attain salvation post their death.
Ancestral souls feel extreme hunger and thirst. As they cannot eat anything on their own, they can only accept the offerings given to them during Shraadh ceremonies. It is therefore highly important for the children to feed and satiate them through the regular Poojas on their departed tithi (lunar day). It is believed that if you do not offer water and food to your ancestors, it could have adverse reactions on your family in current life and the successive generations. This is called as Pitru Dosha or ancestral afflictions.
