Pitrupaksha has started from today. In such a situation, Pitrupaksha starts with Purnima and after 16 days, all Pitru will end on Amavasya. At the same time, people who believe in Hinduism during these 16 days, remember their ancestors and do Shradh and Shradh Karmas are done to liberate and give energy to the ancestors. With this, you will be aware that this time Pitrupaksha is starting from 13 September which is going to run till 28 September. Today, we are going to tell you who is called Pitru.
Who are called Pitra- Such a person who is not alive after being born on earth is called Pitra. With this, if he is married, unmarried, elderly, woman or man, if he has died, then he is called Pitra. It is said that for the peace of the souls of the ancestors, they are paid in the ancestral month of Bhadrapada month and this year, Pitrapaksha starts on September 13. At the same time it is believed that in these days our ancestors come from Pitruloka to Earth and perform Shraddha Karma on the new moon of every month, but from the full moon of Bhadrapada month to the new moon of Ashwin month, the whole fortnight is Shraddha Karma.
With this, Pitrupaksha starts from 13 and ends on 28 September with Pitruvirjana, and Ashtami for father is considered suitable for Shradh on Navami date for mother. With this, a Brahmin must get food in Shradh. Let us tell you that this time Pratipada will be performed on 14 and Shraddha of Dwitiya on 15 September and Shraddha of all Pitra Amavasya on 28 September and there will be no Shradh on 16th due to not getting the midday date. At the same time, the value of Pitripaksha is from Pratipada to Amavasya and this time Shraddha of Dashmi and Ekadashi date will be on the same day.
