Shradh is the time to worship and perform tarpan for the souls of our ancestors in order to provide them peace and salvation. The Shradh Ceremony includes offering food for your pithrus in the pithru loga and thus satisfying their atma enabling us to receive the blessings of the Pitrus.

Every year during Shradh, various Hindu families pray for their ancestors to rest in peace. During these sixteen days of Shradh 2020, each day is dedicated as a Tithi (date) of an ancestor. The Tithi on which the Shradh takes place is equivalent to the date on which the person passed away. Based on that Tithi, prayers are offered for the peace of the departed soul.

The last day of Shradh, that is Amavasya, is the day when we pray to God that all the departed souls rest in peace and may find a place in heaven. This day is known as Sarva Pitru Amavasya Shradh because on this day one can perform the Shradh of anyone.

When to Perform Shradh?

Shradh 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).
