Chant Deity Datta’s Name, pray and perform the Shraddha ritual during Pitrupaksha

Sadguru (Dr) Mukul Gadgil

1. Seekers should chant Deity Datta’s Name : In today’s times, many seekers are suffering from distress caused by negative energies in some form or the other. Since this distress intensifies during the Pitrupaksha, seekers should chant ‘Om Om Shri Gurudev Datta Om’ for at least an hour every day in this period.

This chant is available on :

Seekers who perform spiritual remedies to eliminate distress caused by negative energies should chant the Name of Deity Datta at least an hour besides the spiritual remedies.

Seekers should join the fingertips (bunch your fingers, with the tips touching and pointing towards specific chakras) and perform Nyas at the Anahat-chakra (which is located near the heart) and Manipur-chakra (which is located at the navel, just below the rib cage). Those who do not perform spiritual remedies should ensure that they chant Deity Datta’s Name for at least an hour daily. For this, they should plan an hour from their daily chores, bathing, cleaning, etc. However, if they experience distress caused by their departed ancestors, they should chant Deity Datta’s Name seated at one place and perform Nyas as explained above.

2. Seekers should pray to Deity Datta intermittently during the day and seek protection against distress caused by departed ancestors during the Pitrupaksha.

3. If possible, seekers should perform Shraddha ritual during the Pitrupaksha.

If seekers follow these guidelines, they will be able to eliminate the distress caused by their departed ancestors. Moreover, the departed ancestors will bless them for their spiritual practice.
