Remedy for trouble-obstacles and Pitru Dosh
Whilst meditating on Sadguru or Ishta, chanting a rosary of the following Shiva-Gayatri Mantra in the morning or in the evening at any time for a few days removes Pitradosh, trouble-obstacles and the ancestors are also pleased. When the ancestors are happy, they give happiness and prosperity in the house, family growth and progress everywhere.

🙏🏻 (February 16, Wednesday) is the full moon of Magha month. In religious texts, it is called Maghi Purnima. On this full moon, the rules have been told to be restrained, take bath in the morning and fast, donate etc. At this time the body’s immunity is low. Therefore, fasting at this time does not make the body diseased and gives positivity for the time to come.
Worship Lord Vishnu after taking bath etc. on the morning of Maghi Purnima. After performing Shradh for ancestors, donate food, clothes, sesame seeds, blankets, cotton, jaggery, ghee, shoes, fruits, grains etc. to the handicapped. Donations of gold and silver are also done on this day. Cow donation gives special results.
On this day, observe a fast with restraint. One should not speak loudly or get angry on anyone on this day. Home troubles should be avoided. The poor and needy should be helped. Take special care that no one is insulted by you or through your mind, word or deed. In this way, fasting with restraint gives virtuous results to the fast.
