The ancient city of Varanasi or Benaras, perched on the banks of the holy Ganges river, has been attracting pilgrims for centuries and is one of the world’s oldest inhabited inhabitations. When famous novelist Mark Twain visited India in the last decade of the nineteenth century, he described the city as “ancient than history, tradition, and even legend.”
Varanasi is one of the country’s seven holiest towns and is thought to be the home of Lord Shiva. Varanasi’s ambience has been layered with centuries of history, art, and culture, which is most gloriously visible at its ghats (stepped banks of a river). The Ganges ghats are the focus of Varanasi’s spiritual scene, attracting pilgrims in pursuit of sanctity and divine providence. The ghats are the scene of time-honoured rites that are still conducted today, from the famous Ganga arti (fire ceremony) to cremation ceremonies.
Pind Daan, a Hindu rite for the dearly departed ancestors is one of the most important religious events held along the banks of the sacred Ganga. Pind Daan or Hindu religious tribute to the dearly departed ancestors is a way for living family members to assist the soul of a deceased relative in achieving Mukti or escape from the karmic cycle of birth and rebirth. Brahmin pandits perform the rite by offering pind, or rice balls made with wheat flour, oat flour, dried milk, and honey. Seven pinds are usually offered by Hindu priests. One of these is offered directly to the soul of a loved one who has passed away.
The remainder is for the ancestors or according to the wishes of the ritual family. The Hindu religious ritual of Pind Daan is claimed to have begun with Lord Brahma, and it has since become a Hindu religious responsibility for the deceased family and ancestor spirits.
Varanasi, also known as Kashi, is one of the world’s oldest towns and is known as the Land of Pilgrimage. For centuries, Hindus have travelled to this location because of its religious significance and historical sites. The Hindu religious ceremony of Asthi Visarjan, which is performed for the dearly departed, is the city’s most well-known feature. The immersion and dispersal of the deceased person’s ashes and bones in the flowing waters of a holy river in India is required for this Hindu religious respect to the deceased. The holy river Ganga, also known as the Ganges River, is found in Varanasi and is considered the holiest of Indian rivers.

The term ‘trup’ refers to a person’s ability to please others. The basic word ‘Trup’ was used to create the term ‘Tarpan.’ Tarpan is the act of offering water to God, the Sages, the souls of ancestors, and human people and gratifying them with it.
The goal of tarpan is for God, departed ancestors’ spirits, and other entities whose names are uttered throughout the ritual to give pleasure on us.
For the departed father, grandpa, and great-grandfather, as well as the mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, the rite is done. Its purpose is to nurture, protect, and sustain the dead’s spirits on their journey from the lower to higher realms, prior to their reincarnation and reappearance on Earth. Depending on caste customs, the rites are done between the 11th and 31st day following death, and at regular intervals thereafter. A shraddha ritual is held on the first year death anniversary to allow the departed (preta) to be inducted into the assembly of forebears.
If a family is suffering from untimely or uncertain deaths of their loved ones, or if ancestral rituals like Pind daan, Shradh or Tarpan is not performed regularly for a long time, or incase there is Pitru Dosha in the birth chart of a family member, then Narayan bali pooja is performed. Narayan bali pooja benefits the family and frees the family members from such mishappenings and negative or paranormal events. This pooja is performed for a duration, ranging anywhere from 3 days to 7 days.
