What is Pitra Paksha (Shradha Paksha)?
According to the Brahma Purana, whatever object is given to the Brahmins by a proper method in the name of the ancestors at the appropriate time or place, it is called Shraddh. Food is served to the fathers through satrad for satiety. The food given to the ancestors in the pind form is an essential part of the Shradh.
Pitra Paksha has special significance in Sanatan Dharma. The Jatakas offer tarpan and pinda dan to them for the peace of the ancestor’s soul in the Pitru Paksha. According to mythological beliefs, every year on the Pitra Paksha, the Jatakas do the Shraddha of their ancestors, and they come from the ancestors of the ancestors and receive Shraddha. Pitrudev is pleased by taking Shradh, and his soul gets liberation.
Shraddh performed daily in Pitripaksha is known as Nitya Shraddh. In this, people worship their ancestors daily with water, grain, milk, black sesame and Kush.
