PITRI RINN OR FATHER’S DEBT
When the ancestors’ bad karma’s sins are suffered by one of the descendants, then it is called the Pitri Rin or Pitri Debt. This is the tradition. The father takes the loan, the son has to pay. According to the RED book, the father makes mistakes and the son has to pay them off. The famous epic Ramayana is the best example of the debt. Raja Dasarath killed Shravan by mistake. Shravan’s parents cursed Dasarath, “likewise we are dying in the agony of our son, you would die in the same manner.” Raja Dasarath died in the agony of his son Shri Rama. But what was the fault of Shri Rama? He had to went for 14 years banishment. The RED book has clearly said that whatever you are getting in the immortal world is not only your Karma but also your ancestor’s Karma. The descendants have to suffer from their ancestor’s misdemeanors.
