All Fathers New Moon 2021
If you do not remember the date of death of your family members, then you can make up for this mistake by performing Shradh on the day of Sarva Pitru Amavasya. Know the right rules and methods of performing Shradh.
16 days of Pitru Paksha are dedicated to our ancestors. It is said that in these days the ancestors are freed from Yamraj. In such a situation, our ancestors come to the earth among their descendants and expect food and water from them. Shradh and Tarpan are performed only to fulfill this hope of the ancestors. It has been told in the scriptures that our ancestors get food and water only through Shradh and Tarpan.
On the date when our family members die, their Shradh is performed on the same date of Shradh Paksha. But if you do not remember his death due to any reason, then you should do his Shradh on the new moon day, correcting this mistake. That is why Amavasya of Pitru Paksha is called Sarva Pitru Amavasya. This time Sarva Pitru Amavasya is falling on Wednesday, October 6. If you also want to compensate for your mistakes and omissions, then perform Shradh for ancestors in the manner described here.
do shraadh like this
By the way, you can do Shradh of all your ancestors together on Sarva Pitru Amavasya. But in the scriptures, feeding 16 Brahmins on Sarva Pitru Amavasya is said to be very auspicious. While performing Shradh, install Pitra Yantra on white cloth in the south direction of the house. For them, light a lamp of sesame oil and offer fragrant incense. Offer tarpan with water mixed with sandalwood and sesame. Sitting on the seat of Kush, read the 16th chapter of the Gita. After this, take out 5 portions from the food prepared for the Brahmins, for the deities, cows, dogs, crows and ants. After this, feed kheer, puri, vegetables, sweets, cloves-cardamom and sugar candy etc. to Brahmins with reverence. After this, send off the Brahmins by giving them clothes and dakshina and take their blessings by touching their feet.
donate a lamp
It is believed that on the day of Sarva Pitru Amavasya, ancestors return to their ancestors. Therefore, lamp is donated on the day of Amavasya, so that they can see the way in the right way. For lamp donation, after sunset, light 16 lamps of sesame oil in the south direction of the house. In this way, when the ancestors are sent with respect, they leave satisfied and bless their children. Which brings happiness, prosperity and happiness in the family.
keep these things in mind
– Prepare the food of Shraddha with complete purity and do not use onion and garlic in it.
