Saptami Shraddha

Saptami is the seventh day of the lunar month. Saptami Shraddha is performed for the ancestors who died on Saptami tithi. This day is the common time to perform the Shraddha ceremonies of those who died both during the Krishna Paksha (dark lunar fortnight) and Shukla Paksha (bright lunar fortnight).

How to perform Pitru Paksha Shraddhas?

Pitru Paksha Shraddhas are described as Parvan Shraddhas. During this period, the best time to perform the ceremonies for the ancestors is either Kutup Muhurat or Rohina Muhurat. Generally, Tarpan can be performed anytime. However, it is very appropriate to conclude the shraddha ceremonies with tarpan during the Pitru Paksha Shraddha.

Pitru Paksha Shraddha importance

Hinduism attaches a lot of importance to the Pitru Paksha Shjraddhas. Pitru Paksha Shraddha ceremonies are considered highly beneficial since it is believed that the deceased ancestors visit their families on the earth to receive the offerings. If they are satisfied fully, they will bless the descendants with health, wealth and prosperity. Hence a lot of importance is attached to the Pitru Paksha Shraddhas.

Important points on Pitru Paksha Shraddha

Pitru Paksha Shraddhas must be done with extreme care, sincerity and devotion. Following the Shraddha, the pinda daan is either immersed in a river or water body or fed to a cow. Feeding Brahmins and donating them money, groceries, clothes and other things can give immense benefits on this day. People also feed birds and animals and do charity works on this day in addition to the regular Shraddha ceremonies to win the blessings of the ancestors.
