(01st September - 17th September 2020)
Shradh Puja marks an essential and most precious time for performing the ritual of Tarpan. Shradh Paksha is a highly important aspect of the Hindu culture that holds a key place in Vedic rituals. Performing Tarpan in Shradh Puja is a way of remembering, thanksgiving and honoring the ancestors for whatever they have given to the present generations. The period of Shradh is also known as Pitru Paksha or Pitru Pakshaya, Apara Paksha, etc. whereas, the word Pitras means “Ancestors” and Paksha means “A particular time”.
Every year, an important period of 15 days (Pitru Paksha or Shraadh) is dedicated to the ancestors or forefathers during which people perform special rituals for the well being of their late ancestors. Starting from Bhadrapada Purnima, Shraddh or Pitru Paksha ends on Ashwin Amavasya which is also known as Sarva Pitru Amavasya. Shradh occurs right before the Sharada Navaratri in autumn. Like every year, Shraddha will come again in 2020 with a great significance for our ancestors and for us.
Note: Shradh in 2020 will begin from 01st September, so you can Book Shradh Puja as per the Tithi you want to perform it on.
Significance of Shradh Puja
The special Shradh Puja at Indian Astrology will be performed under strict Vedic rituals so that the one can alleviate all his/her past bad karmas in order to get rid of Pitru Dosh from his/her kundali. In this period, Hindus pay special honor and tribute to their ancestors publically, through food offerings. According to Brahma Puran, Yamraj (Lord of Death) give freedom to all the souls on the eve of Krishna Paksha so that they can eat food which is offered to them by their children on the occasion of Shradh Puja. Special Poojas are performed and food is offered to Brahmin priests during the 15 days of Shrad. Those who passed away on Amavasya, Purnima, and Chaturdashi tithi for them the Amavasya Tithi Shraddha is done. A single Pitru Paksha Shrad puja is also enough to give tribute to all the deceased souls in the family The significance of Pitru Paksha can be best known from one of the biggest epics of all time Mahabharata.
