Meaning of Shradh-Pitru Paksha (Shradh 2018)
Shradh is an important ritual as per the Hindu tradition. It is performed as a Puja to salvation aka atma shanti of departed ancestors (paternal as well as maternal). It is an act of tribute and respect, devotion towards ancestors.  Appeasing the dearly departed souls and offering them respect before God’s presence helps enhance one’s well-being. It is especially helpful in nullifying the effects of Pitr dosh. 

During Shradh, Pitra Kriya is highly significant. As per the Garud Purana, Matsya Purana, Vishnu Purana, Vayu Purana and other sacred scriptures as Manu Smriti etc. give an account or representation of Shradh.

Pitru Paksha Days – 2018 Shradh Days
In the month of Ashwin each year, during Krishna Paksh, i.e. 15 days commencing from Purnima (full moon) to Amavasya (dark night) "Shradh" days are observed. In the year 2018, it will start from 24th September 2018 and end on 8th October 2018.  Shradh is the ritual carried out to gratify one's ancestors. It is stated in the ancient texts that a person who does not execute the Shradh of his departed paternal and maternal near and dear ones has to bear much in life and even after.

Shradh In view of Garuda Purana
In the ancient Indian religious text Garud Puraan and other Puraans it is clearly stated that by offering this puja to the forefathers and departed dear ones, their souls feel gratified and they bless the person with wealth, children, knowledge, joys, and pleasures, with long and healthy life. We perform "Shradh" on the day when our ancestors left us for heavenly abode i. e on their death anniversary. If a person does not know the dates of passing such a person should perform Shradh on the moonless night (Amavasya) every month or must in the month of Shradh.

  • Shradh In Case Of Akal Mrityu - Death before time
  • If someone from the family died in an accident or due to some unnatural reason, it is called as Akaal Mrityu(death before time) and for them we do "Shradh" on last day of Ashwin month i. e., Amavasya.
  • Remembering loved Ancestors on Shradh Days

Unfortunately, Shradh is an important death ceremony but is one of the most neglected Hindu rituals in the present day society. The Vedic phrase 'jiva jivasya jivanam' the living entity survives by feeding upon another living entity who in turn survives by feeding on another living entity. . . is often an ignored concept, mostly due to lack of knowledge.

Pitra Dosh Nivaran through Pitru paksha Puja 2018
Malefic effects of Jupiter are also considered due to pitra dosh. It is not a curse of ancestors. It appears in the horoscope of a person due to the previous bad karmas of his forefathers. In simple terms, he has to pay for those actions by going through the suffering that has been decided for those karmic deeds. This will continue until these karmic debts are cleared either by suffering or by the good deeds that have been done by the person who has the pitra dosha. It is just like a child inherits the assets and liabilities of his forefathers in this materialistic world, the results of past karmas are also passed on to the descedents. To relieve yourself of pitra dosha we should do Shradh/pitrapaksh puja on every Amavasya and also in the Shradh days in the month of Ashwin to get benefit to the greatest possible degree.
