The distress caused to us descendants by ancestral spirits manifests in many ways in our day-to-day lives. It creates obstacles in both, our worldly lives as well as spiritual practice. In some cases, it may seem that the entire family has a dark cloud over it and various family members are undergoing various problems despite all efforts to overcome them. The difficulties that are created due to ancestral spirits come in various forms such as marital disharmony, addictions, miscarriages and financial problems. At an intellectual level, we can use two rules of thumb to decide if the cause of suffering is spiritual in nature. The first rule is if all remedies to solve the problem have failed. This is especially so when the problem should be easily treatable by modern sciences. The second rule is if a number of family members (e.g. 4 out of 5) are suffering with any of the above mentioned issues simultaneously. The reason that all the family members get affected is that they all have the same ancestors. In this section learn how we can protect ourselves from problems caused by ancestral spirits and assist our departed ancestors in the afterlife.
