Man is lost and is wandering in a jungle where real values have no meaning. Real values can have meaning to man only when he steps on to the spiritual path, a path where negative emotions have no use.
-Sai Baba

Pitri Paksha Mahalaya Amavasya

One of the Vedic traditions observed on the Siddha Yoga path is Pitru Paksha, which is designated as an especially powerful time to honor our ancestors.

According to the Vedas, our ancestors include not only members of our own family lineage but also those who have contributed to our welfare in this or in previous lives.

These ancestors can be our teachers, mentors, role models, friends, and those who have walked the spiritual path before us.

Mahalaya Paksha: The Ancestors' Time

Great enlightened beings, who have turned their body into light, visit the earth daily in their light form. Our departed ancestors also come and stay on this earth plane for 15 days in a year in our body, mind and soul and can change all these 3 positively. Even Gods cannot do what these ancestors can do for you; in fact, Gods ask you to go through your ancestors for blessings.

the Mahalaya Amavasya night. This two week period is the most important period to appreciate your departed ancestors.

Mahalaya Amavasya or Pitra Amavasya is the new moon day of Pitri Paksha or Mahalaya Paksha, the fortnight which is especially sacred for offering oblations or Tharpanam to the departed ancestors. It is believed that performing Tharpanams or Tarpan during the auspicious Mahalaya Paksha will bless your ancestors and will free them from all their sins.

Each day in the Mahalaya Paksha is ruled by a particular Tithi or Moon Phase and the benefits of offering Tharpanam on each day are different. Mahalaya Amavasya is the last day of the Mahalaya Paksha , which is considered as the most important day in the year for performing obsequies and rites and on this day people donate food, clothes etc.
