Pitru Paksha - Mahalaya Shradh Puja - Hindi

Related Services

Pitru Paksha Shraddha is also known as Mahalaya Paksha Shraddha. This ritual is meant to please the almighty or one’s ancestral relatives who are deceased. Pitru paksha is a 15 lunar day’s period wherein our pitrus are allowed to come to earth and Eldermost son performs the shradh.

In Sanskrit, Pitru means, one’s ancestors. In Hinduism it is believed that people who leave their bodies after death enter the world of ancestors known as Pitru Loka. Those residing in the Pitru loka feel extreme pangs of hunger and thirst. They cannot however eat anything on their own and accept the offerings given to them during Shraadh ceremonies. It is therefore highly important for the children of the deceased to propitiate them through the regular observance of the Shradh ceremony. Faults in this can invite the anger of the ancestors and result in Pitru Dosh. Therefore, the Pitru Dosha rituals are conducted during the Month of Pitru Paksha.

When to Perform Pitru Paksha?

Pitru Paksha falls in the Hindu month of Bhadrapada, beginning with the Purnima (full moon) of the Shukla Paksha of this month, and ends with its Amavasya (new moon).
