What do Hindu scriptures say about breaking out of Pitru Dosha?

What are the practical ways to get rid of Pitru Dosha?

Can chanting Gayatri Mantra 108 times per day or Vippassana meditation remove the dosha?

    Rhonda, if you are a woman you must not be chanting gayatri. You are probably accruing more dosha by doing so. What makes you feel your family is suffering from pitru dosha?

    @Rhonda--Do Tila tharpanam at Rameswaram [Tamil Nadu] to get rid of pitru dosha. That is the best one. Tila means Ellu which is a favourite grain for Lord Narayana. Nov 13, 2016 at 17:10

    Sorry to hear about the problems. This is what one can do make things better. At 6 am and 6 pm everyday please do namaskaram to the sun god and gayatri devi. Do this without the mantra. Just plain namaskaram. It is equivalent to the gayatri. Do not chant the om- bhu bhuva etc. please. We do not have adhikara to chant it. Chant SriRama SriRama during the rest of the day. Things will get better in due time. Just be cautious during times of asoucha.
