All About Pitru Paksha or Shradh Puja/Daan and Its Significance


Meaning of Shradh-Pitru Paksha

Shradh is a pooja done for atma shanti for your departed paternal and maternal near and dear ones. It is a ritual for expressing one’s respectful feelings for their ancestors with devotion. This annual death ceremony (tithi) procedure allays the sufferings of your departed dear ones. Delighting ancestors before God is promoting or enhancing well-being. Pitra Kriya is richer in significance or implication than Dev Kriya. Garud Purana, Matsya Purana, Vishnu Purana, Vayu Purana and other sacred scriptures as Manu Smriti, etc. give an account or representation of Shraddh.

2021 shradh days/Pitru Paksha Days or Pitra Paksha Tarpan

Every year in the month of Ashwin (Hindu month), Krishna Paksh i. e. , 15 days commencing from Purnima(full moon) to Amavasya (dark night) “Shraadh” days are performed. Pitru paksha 2022 dates will be from 11th September 2022 to 25th September 2022.

Shraddhyaa Kriyate Yaa Saa :

Shraddh is the ritual carried out to gratify one’s ancestors. It is stated in the texts that a person who does not execute the Shraadh of his departed paternal and maternal near and dear ones has to bear much in life and even after.

Shradh in view of Garud puran

In the ancient Indian religious text Garud Puraan and other Puraans it is clearly stated that by offering this pooja to the forefathers and departed dear ones, their souls feel gratified and they bless the person with wealth, children, knowledge, joys, pleasures, with a long and healthy life. We perform “Shradh” on the day when our ancestors left us for heavenly abode i.e on their death anniversary. If a person does not know the dates of passing such a person should perform Shraddh on the moonless night(Amavasya) every month or must in the month of shradh.

Significance of Pitru Paksha/Shradh Chaturdashi Tithi

For ancestors who may have died due to any weapon, poison or accidents, their Shradh is performed on Chaturdashi and for ancestors who died on Chaturdashi, their Shradh is performed on Amavasya

Shradh In Case Of Akal Mrityu – Death before time

If someone from the family died in an accident or due to some unnatural reason, it is called as Akaal Mrityu(death before time) and for them, we do “Shraadh” on last day of Ashwin month i. e., Amavasya.

Remembering loved Ancestors on Shradh Days

Unfortunately, this important death ceremony(shraadh) is one of the most neglected Hindu rituals in present-day society. The Vedic phrase ‘jiva jivasya jivanam’ the living entity survives by feeding upon another living entity who in turn survives by feeding on another living entity. . .

The benefit of Ancestor Puja on Pitru Paksha

Performing this pooja for ancestors will bring good fortune to their descendants and thereby receiving positive energies for progress. The descendant also receives blessings from the pitra/forefathers to help him materially. This can greatly help the individual to progress spiritually as the material obstacles or problems are eradicated. This pooja has very powerful effects on improving health and curing serious diseases. This is being done for getting recovery from chronic diseases and other body ailments. Those who are invariably suffering from any aliments shall get shradh puja done for early recovery. This pooja is specifically suitable for Success in Business or Career, Protection from Evils and Enemies.

Pitra Dosh Nivaran through Pitru paksha Puja

Malefic effects of Jupiter are also considered due to pitra dosh. It is not a curse of ancestors. It appears in the horoscope of a person due to the previous bad karmas of his forefathers. In simple terms, he has to pay for those actions by going through the suffering that has been decided for those karmic deeds. This will continue until these karmic debts are cleared either by suffering or by the good deeds that have been done by the person who has the pitra dosha. It is just like a child inherits the assets and liabilities of his forefathers in this materialistic world, the results of past karmas are also passed on to the descendants. To relieve yourself of pitra dosha we should do shraadh/pitra paksh pooja on every Amavasya and also in the shraadh days in the month of Ashwin to get benefit to the greatest possible degree.

Shradh Or Pitru Paksha Pooja is Remedy for malefic effects of Jupiter

If Jupiter is in his sign of debilitation and associated with a malefic one can find his life ruined in all respects due to malefic effects of planet Jupiter. The Pitra Dosha created by the Jupiter, in the horoscope, is related to the Sins committed by ancestors. Appeasing deity of the relevant planet causing Pitra Dosha in the horoscope of a person is must, to get rid of the problems originated due to them. Otherwise, the implications of Pitra Dosha will continue to reflect on the birth charts of ongoing generation. Further, the persons going through the main and sub-period of Jupiter ( Brahaspati mahadasha and antardasha) are suggested to conduct the shraadh pooja so that quantum of suffering or debt is reduced

Shradh Puja Minimizes the Negative Effect of Kaal Sarp Dosha

Kaal sarp dosha is also minimized and fruitful results are obtained by doing the shraadh pooja by procuring the blessings of ancestors. Childless couples and persons facing hindrance in getting monetary benefits due to kaal sarp dosha when perform this pooja are benefited to a great extent.
