Gayaji Pind Daan is a ritual everyone should do every year or at least once in their lifetime, because Lord Vishnu has blessed the city and his footprint is still present in Vishnupad temple.
Gaya, Bihar, is a city located in the Indian state of Bihar. It is one of the oldest and most sacred pilgrimage sites in India. It is known as “one of the spiritual centres of the earth,” and has been home to many Hindu temples throughout its long history.
In Hinduism, Pind Daan is a ritual performed to liberate the soul of a departed ancestor. It is believed that by performing this ritual, the soul of the ancestor is freed from the cycle of rebirth and can attain salvation.
The ritual involves offering food and water to the ancestors, as well as reciting mantras and performing certain rituals. Pind Daan is usually performed on special occasions such as Diwali or on the anniversary of the ancestor’s death.
Gaya is considered to be the preferred place for Pind Daan.
How much does it cost to perform Gayaji Pind Daan?
While it is highly subjective, you may expect to pay between INR 11000 and INR 21000 for a thorough puja performed for your mental fulfilment. Alternatively, you may pay a budget amount ranging from INR 2100 to INR 7100.
Be cautious when quoting the priests’ amount during the mantra’s recitation to tie you by a vow (sankalpam) for the Pind Daan, lest you be obliged to pay more than your budget allows.
Maintain sufficient INR 100/10 rupee notes to pay the pandas and to gift to beggars and cleaning employees who may approach you for alms/charity.
