Trouble caused by ancestors due to family traditions not being followed
Until February 28 2003, Mahesh, a seeker in India had been experiencing many difficulties in life such as obstacles in studies, constant arguments with family etc. On starting his spiritual practice this seeker started residing in the Spiritual Science Research Foundation’s (SSRF) centre in Thane, a city outside Mumbai, India. In the course of his spiritual practice, it was noticed that the seeker’s temperament would suddenly change from his normal self and he would get uncontrollably noisy and loud and would not be himself, as though he was possessed and controlled by another entity. The seeker was sent to SSRF’s hermitage (ashram) in Panvel, another city in India for spiritual treatment by seekers with subtle perception abilities so as to help him get to the root of his problem. It was very quickly discovered that the cause was the ghost of his ancestor.
The following is a transcript of the conversation between the ghost who had manifested and the seekers of SSRF with the ability to perceive and converse with it.
Ancestor’s Subtle Body: I’m his father’s cousin. Leave me in Khareshwar (A temple in India).
Seekers: What is there in Khareshwar?
Ancestor’s Subtle Body: I possessed him in the Khareshwar temple, and so I can leave him only there. Your His Holiness Dr. Jayant Athavale has asked me to leave him. I feel like listening to Him.
Seekers: Why do you trouble him?
Ancestor’s Subtle Body: Because nobody in his family follows the family tradition of worshipping Lord Shiva (the divine principle of Destruction), at Khareshwar and so I cannot be freed from my ghost-like existence. Since they are not continuing the family tradition, why should I let them live? I want to destroy their family.
Seekers: Why do you make so much noise and cause so much trouble?
Ancestor’s Subtle Body: Because I cannot stay in the hermitage. Leave me in Khareshwar. I do not have enough energy to leave him here (in the hermitage)
Seekers: When did you possess him?
Ancestor’s Subtle Body: When he was 4 years old I possessed him in Khareshwar temple.
Seekers: How did you trouble him?
Ancestor’s Subtle Body: I degraded his handwriting (seeker has bad writing), I put obstacles in his education. (When the troubled seeker was studying for engineering he missed a year, thereby failing. Later he studied hard but despite this, still failed. He thought of dropping out of school, but other seekers persuaded him to complete it.) I troubled his mother and also tried to create doubts about him in other seekers’ minds.
(Prior to the ghost talking to the seekers, the affected seeker always used to say, “I want to go to Thane”)
Seekers: What is there in Thane?
Ancestor’s Subtle Body: I can trouble him more in SSRF’s centre in Thane but not here in the Panvel hermitage (ashram), as here a lot of holy energy (sattva component) is present.
Seekers: If we take him to Khareshwar will you definitely leave him?
Negative energy : Yes, definitely I will leave him. I swear by Khareshwar! (The ghost repeated this thrice)
Seekers: While going to Khareshwar, if you give him trouble, we won’t be able to take him.
Ancestor’s Subtle Body: No, I won’t trouble him on the way. I will trouble him only when he goes inside the temple and bows before the symbol of Lord Shiva (Pindi). (“I will not trouble him while going to the temple and I won’t trouble this seeker again” was repeated three times by the ghost)
On March 2, 2003 when the affected seeker was taken to the temple of Khareshwar, while bowing to the symbol of Lord Shiva, the ghost manifested again and gave the following information:
Ancestor’s Subtle Body: Every year bring him to visit this temple and ask him to go to the holy place Kashi (a place of pilgrimage in India) soon. This is my wish. I have given him lot of trouble and so I’m sad. Give my regards to H.H. Dr. Jayant Athavale. I feel sad while leaving.
After that the seeker felt light, as though a huge burden had been lifted, and thereafter did not experience any trouble.
It must be noted that to overcome the negative energy trouble there is no need to go to any Sorcerer but with the power of chanting the Name of God and other complementary spiritual practice, one can fight troublesome ghosts just like this seeker did.
