(1) Bad deeds ( bad karma ) of our ancestors in earlier life, knowingly or unknowingly, are embarrassing their souls
(2) Bad deeds ( bad karma ) of children, knowingly or unknowingly, are embarrassing the soul of ancestors
(3) Lack of fulfillments of parental desires of our ancestors
(4) A sudden and unnatural death of any relative ancestors in early age
(5) If someone fails to remember and honor the ancestors properly
(6) If certain wishes are remained attached with the soul of the ancestors, etc. Pitra Dosha occurs if any ancestors up to the 7th generation on the father’s side and up to the 4th generation on the mother’s side have expired at an early age or have had an unnatural death.
