What is Pitrupaksha
The Pitru Paksha also known as Mahalaya Paksha, is a Hindu ceremony in which Hindus pay honour to their ‘pitrs,’ or ancestors. It lasts 16 days during Krishna paksha, or the time between Purnima (full moon day) and Amavasya, in the month of Ashvin or Bhadrapada, according to the Hindu calendar.
Pitru Paksha begins after the Ganesh Chaturthi festival, and the most important day is known as ‘Mahalaya Amavasya,’ ‘Pitru Amavasya,’ ‘Sarvapitri Amavasya,’ ‘Peddala Amavasya,’ or simply ‘Mahalaya.’
Pitru Paksha’s Importance:
Pitru Paksha, also known as “Pitri Pokkho,” “Apara Paksha,” “Peddala Amavasya,” “Jitiya,” or “Sola Shraddha,” is a Hindu religious rite.
It is thought that through performing the Shraddha ceremonies, their ancestors’ souls will ascend to heaven. The son performs all of the rites during Pitru Paksha since it is said in the ‘Garuda Purana’ that a man can only be saved after producing a son.
According to Hindu mythology, the departed souls of the ancestors can only rest in peace when the Shraddha ceremonies are completed. According to Hindu writings such as the ‘Markandeya Purana,’ when the ancestors are pleased with the tarpan, they give money, knowledge, and long and healthy life to the ritual performer.
