In Bhagiratha story, cause and effect not applied? Fore-fathers were not able to reach Mukthi. However, due to Bhagiratha’s efforts that involved bringing Ganges and performing rituals, several of his Fore-fathers attained Mukthi. Is this one among the many exceptions that we encounter in Puranas? Is this special case of curse and associated solution?
And Pithrus are at higher level; we are at receiving end; how come individuals here do good to those who are at better place..what is the need for it? How to understand ?
Please forgive my ignorance and kindly clarify.
