Pitru Paksh 2023: Do’s and Don’ts during Shradh
It’s that time of the year again where we pay homage to our ancestors and remember them by observing a 16 day shradh.
Check out what the experts say to observe in this 16 days shradh:
As suggested by Astrologer Sunita Krishna “During Pitru Paksha, it is believed that all the seven realms are open, allowing our offerings to reach our ancestors.
To honor them, people should engage in various acts of charity such as feeding the needy, donating clothes and food grains, and caring for animals like crows, birds, dogs, and cows.
Remembering our ancestors, seeking their blessings, and asking for forgiveness, hold great importance during this time.
Performing Tarpan, especially if there is Pitru Dosha in the family ( your horoscope reflects it ) is a common practice.
Lighting a mustard oil diya by the south or main door in their name is considered highly auspicious.
It’s important to note that during these days, some traditions advise against buying certain items like brooms, salt, and mustard oil.
Similarly, Numerologist & Reiki Healer Deipali Ddosshi says, “Place a pot filled with water on your balcony and let birds specifically crows come and drink it.
The power of gratitude is very important.
Tarot Card Reader & Healer Antara Dalvi says
The best thing you can offer to your Ancestors is Gratitude because we would not exist without their contribution and may not have all the things we have today.
