IMPORTANCE OF PITRU-PAKSHA
(2nd Sept. 2020 – 17th Sept 2020)
पिता ददाति सत्पुत्रान् गोधनानि पितामह: । धनदाता भवेत्सोपि यस्तस्य प्रपितामह: ।
दद्याद्विपुलमन्नाद्यं वृद्धस्तु प्रपितामह: । तृप्ता: श्राद्धेन ते सर्वे दत्वा पुत्रस्य वांछितं ।
By doing the shraddha/paksha, father will bless you with satputraas (good yogya children). Your Pitamaha, i.e., grand father will bless you with go-dhana (cow-wealth), Prapitamaha (Great grand father) will bless with property and wealth. They also bless us with Food, shelter, wealth, grains, etc.
Pitru Paksha is the “Pitru Yajna” performed to discharge Pitru Rina, an important duty performed for the departed ancestors souls during this fortnight, by which they remain satisfied for the entire year.
Shraddha in Pitru Paksha is the time to remember, thank and honor our ancestors. It is believed that during this time, ancestors come to earth to bless their kin.
