Welcome to Hotel Bodhgaya Gautam

Pind Dan in Pitra Paksha
Pitru Paksha in 2013 is from September 19 to October 04. It is the sixteen lunar day period which is dedicated to our ancestors and forefathers. Pitru Paksh begins on poornima (full moon day) of Bhadrapada (September) and ends on Amavasya (no moon day) of Ashwani month in Shukla Paksh (waxing moon period). During this period people pay homage to their pitra (ancestors), as Pitru Paksh is 'fortnight of ancestors'. And offering food and performing rituals for dead ancestors is also known as Shradh Pooja.
They perform pooja and rituals for the departed souls of dead forefathers or ancestors. Pitru paksh is performed by children or relatives for their dead ancestors and forefathers. For other religious purpose, this period is considered inauspicious. It means Hindu people do not initiate or start any important work during period of Pitri Paksh. Beginning day of the Pitra Paksh is considered as 'Poornima Shradh'. On this day, Mahalvya pitru Paksh begins. And last day of Pitra Paksh is considered as Amavasi Shradh. Mahalvya Pitru Paksh ends on this day. However, Hindu people can perform rituals for Shradh in all Amavasi or no moon days. But Pitra Paksh of Bhadrapad-Ashwin month which lasts for 16 days is considered the most important period for performing Shradh. Tarpanam, Shradham, Pitri Paksh, Sola Shraddha, are various names used for Pitru Paksh. The customs and rituals attached to Pitru Paksha Shraddh vary from region to region. Many close relatives also observe fast on the shradh day for peace of soul of their dead ancestors. Most people avoid non-vegetarian food during the occasion of Pitra Paksh. While some people do not cut their hair or shave relatives perform customs and rituals under the guidance of a learned person or priest. After shradh pooja food is offered to dead forefathers.
