In Pitrupaksha, chant the Name of Deity Datta, pray and perform the Shraddha ritual

Sadguru (Dr.) Mukul Gadgil

1. Chanting the Name of Deity Dattatreya : As of now, many seekers are suffering from undesirable forces. Since this problem increases during the Pitrupaksha (From 3rd to 17th September 2020), chant ‘II Om Om Shri Gurudev Datta Om Om II’ at least 1 hour daily during this period.

Seekers who perform spiritual remedies should chant the Name of Deity Dattatreya for at least 1 hour in addition to the chant specified as spiritual remedies. While chanting the Name of Deity Dattatreya, join the tips of all the fingers of both the hands and perform Nyas at the Anahat-chakra and Manipur-chakra.

Seekers who do not perform spiritual remedies should ensure that Deity Dattatreya’s Name is chanted 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 Deity Dattatreya’s Name when seated.

2. During the Pitrupaksha, pray to Deity Dattatreya intermittently during the day to be protected from the distress caused by the departed ancestors.

3. If possible, seekers should perform the Shraddha ritual during the Pitrupaksha. By doing so, not only will the distress caused by the departed ancestors get eliminated, but their blessings too will be obtained for spiritual practice.
