Putra Dosha – The background
Putra dosha, the flaw that pertains to children is a very popular term in Vedic Astrology. It comprises of all types of faults that may be related to one’s children as seen from the horoscope.
The main cause of Putradosha is past life deeds. Putradosha indicates that the person has be unkind to a child or children. Depending on the range of the crime towards children in a past life, the putradosha ranges from mild to heavy in the current birth.
Parents take care of us. In return we cannot take care of the parents in the same way. To pay back, you need to take care of your children because you are the parents to your children. Not taking care of your children is one of the worst crimes possible. Just think of a world where parents do not take care of their children. So taking care of children is the most important duty of the husband and wife.
So it follows that the atonement rituals may include as payback any of the following: either the direct punishment, adoption of children or huge medical expense due to infertility problems.
Medical expenses is part of the punishment. By not taking care of children in a past life the person may have saved a lot of money in a past life. That money has now to be spent on medical treatment. So doctors will become the tax collector in this case. That is why infertility specialists charge a lot of money.
When you throw away something soon you will be needing it. Have you noticed that? So if you throw away or abort children you will in a future birth struggle to have a child.
It is like you do not payback the loan in a bank and soon no bank will help you with a loan in the future. In such cases local money lenders take advantage and punish you more with huge interests.
In short Putradosha like all other dosha is proof that Karma works.
Putradosha manifests more than one way.
If children are born they will become the main cause of concern in your life
Children will be thoroughly disobedient.
Children may be separated from you. Putradosha will work in tandem with marital problems that are already there in the horoscope trying to separate father and mother so that the child will suffer.
Sudden downfall in career – from great heights to nothing
From the above we know that within the term Putradosha – there is a range starting from the highest Putradosha to the lowest Putradosha.
In case the dosha is not remedies will work. If the putradosha is too much then remedies will not work.
If you have to assess the level of Putradosha then you have to know a great deal of rules pertaining to problems related to childlessness and serious problems with children.
Aspect of Guru
Whenever there is the aspect of Guru (Jupiter) or the conjunction of Jupiter with the 5th house or its lord then there is always the hope that remedies will work. Remedies may be the help of God or the help of medicine. Use both together, that is my opinion.
If Jupiter is not at all connected and there is a high level of putradosha in the horoscope of both the man and wife then it is better to stop trying to have children by using medical assistance and go ahead with adoption which is what Karma wants. People spend a lot of money on medical assistance to fulfill the fate that they have to be punished for a major sin in their past life pertaining to children.
Connection of Guru means connection with teacher, doctor and Astrologer. So I have seen that only those who have a Jupiter connection to the problem finally reach out to a good astrologer who will tell the couple what to do. Otherwise they do not get the chance at all.
3 out of every 12 horoscopes will have Putradosha
