Does the give-and-take (karma) with my ancestors get cleared if we chant the protection chant of Shri Gurudev Datta?
Yes, chanting the Name of Lord Datta clears our give-and-take account with our ancestors. The mechanism of how this works is that the subtle basic Sattva component is generated through the chant and passed on to the ancestor. This acts as a repayment mechanism and helps to nullify the give-and-take account between the affected person and his ancestor. With the increased subtle basic Sattva component, the ancestor’s desires pertaining to their give-and-take with their descendant doing the chant reduce. However, the ancestor’s desires in general do not reduce. Along with this the ancestor also acquires the requisite spiritual boost to make his onward journey into more positive sub-regions. The quantity and quality of our chanting will decide how much we can contribute to their onward journey.
