Inauspicious Death Days Tripada Dosha Parihara

Hinduism states that there are days which are considered as inauspicious for Death.

If one dies on these specified days, Parihara, Atonement is recommended.

Commonly held belief is that if the Pariharas are not done, more deaths would follow.

I am not too sure about this.

What I am certain is that these deaths bring in Pitru Dosha and Pariharas are necessary.

The Days inauspicious for Death fall under three categories.

Relating to the Nakshatras, Stars.

Rohini, Dhanishta, Satabhisham, Purvabhadra, Revathi, Mrugasira, Punarvasu, Uttara, Chitra, Visakha, Uttarashada, and Magha.

Thithis, Waxing and Waning of the Moon.

Padyami, Vidiya, Shashti, Ashtami, Ekadasi, Dwadasi, Trayodasi, Chaturdasi and Amavasya.


Sunday, Tuesday, Friday and  Saturday.

Some Smritis offer the following Parihara.

  • If a death has only one dosha the family members should leave the house for 1 month
  • If a death has two doshas the family members should leave the house for 6 months.
  • If a death has all the three types of doshams the family members should leave the house for 1 year.

As this is not practical now a days, there are other Pariharas as well.

  1. Pitru Tarpan Pooja (Shraddha Pooja) needs to be done at home with 5 dolls  made of Darbha (Kusha Grass) & White Cotton.

Prana Prathistapana ritual (infuse life in the Dolls) ceremony of the 5 dolls needs to be performed.

After Pooja, these 5 dolls should be buried in sand or mud near River or Sea shore.

Or perform Rudrabhisheka at home & offer food to   ancestors.

This pooja needs to be done without fail, otherwise dosha will not be removed.

  1. Nakshatra Shanti pooja & Navagraha Shanti Pooja need to be done for nullifying  the affect of Dosha.
  1. Perform Mahamrityunjaya Homa/Japa  at  home  after the above pooja’s are done.

Or Visit Gokarna  or other Pitru Parihara Sthalas and offer Sraddha.

  1. my mother in law died with those 3 dhoshas and instead of yongest son eldest son performed rituals (my husband) as they were not ready to do.I am worried if doshas would follow whose family.Please help


  2. I truly is a believer od Doshas. Saw this in my own home..I happened to lose 5 family members in span of 2 years. Later performed Shanti puja and other rituals to stop the death from taking further toll.


  3. pitru dosha one cannot predict the day, nakshatra and thithi etc. It is precalculated neither you can postpone and prepone. Pitru dosha a general term
    being attributed to each and every inauspicious event. Pitrus never give curse to their children unless they were not taken care or deprived of their care by their children. during their life period Which parent will curse their children? There is no ref of such as pitru dosha found in any religious books. nor any such follow=ups. Why do you attribute every inauspicious event to Pithru dosha This is a psychological fear
    created in the m,inds of people.What happens if the deceased has no children or do not belong to hindu society. Do you mean to say that the soul will not attain Moksha. A detailed scientific approach will solve this mystery.

    1. Most important duty is towards one’s ancestors, are here because of them.The Sradddha and other ceremonies related to ancestors is an expression of this.As to their attaining Moksha by performing Sraddha etc I have written a Post in detail.I am not instilling fear. I am sharing my experiences and I have found that inexplicable hardships are solved by performing these ceremonies /Sumangali Prarthana.
