Our Team at Dr. Pankti’s REVIVE Multi Speciality Clinic wishes Blessed Pitru Paksha 2019 to everyone.
Ohh! departed souls and ancestors,
May your souls rest in peace.
Pitru Paksha means fortnight of the ancestors is a 16–lunar day period in Hindu calendar when Hindus pay homage to their ancestor especially through food offerings. The purpose of Shradh is to repay any debts we owe to our deceased ancestors by gratifying their spirits as well as to make free of their sins. The importance of performing Shradh Karma with full devotion has been mentioned in the Shastras.
Just as we serve our parents and close relatives when they are alive as part of abiding by our Dharma, we have certain duties unto them after their death. The Shradh rites provide us with an excellent opportunity to fulfill these duties and repay our debts unto the Pitrus (Ancestors). They are necessary so that the journey after the death of our parents, who have taken our utmost care during our childhood, becomes comfortable and without any distress, and that they acquire ‘Sadgati’ (Momentum for moving to the next higher region spiritually).
It’s about seeking Ancestral Blessings for current and successive generations through satisfying them with Offerings or ‘Pindam’
This Year Shradh Starts From 13th September and ends on 28th September 2019.
May we all get blessings from our ancestors for a positive & spiritual life ahead!
