Pitru Paksha Shraddh 2020
Pitru Paksha is a 16 day period from Purnima thithi in Bhadrapada masa to Amavasya or Sarvapitri Amavasya also known as Mahalaya Amavasya. This is the period during which Hindus pay homage to their ancestors, especially by conducting various ancestral rites along with offerings of food to the deceased ancestors. Some believe Pitru Paksha to be inauspicious, as death rites like Shradh2020, Pitru Paksha Shradh at Rameswaram, Pind Daan or Pitru Tarpan Pitru Paksha Shraddha are performed, but it is generally believed to be the time when we seek the blessings of all our ancestors by offering these rituals. The Mahalaya Amavasya is the most important day in Hindu tradition, it is believed that this is the day when Lord Narayana permits all departed souls to visit earth and bless their surviving families with joy and happiness.

Importance of Pitru Paksha Shradh
A Paksha is of 15 days. Pitru Paksh is extremely important for the Hindu orthodox, as a fortnight of revering their ancestors and clearing their Karmic debts. Hindus perform Shraddha (Thithi) during this fortnight. Pitru Paksh Shraddh /Mahalaya Paksh Shradh rituals are to be compulsorily done, as per the right procedures, by every Dharmik Hindu, annually.
Karna’s legend of performing Shraddh:
It is interesting to learn that the practice of Pitru Paksha got started by Karna of Maha Bharata. Karna reaches Svarga (the heaven) and is happy. When hungry, he asks the gods for food. He is offered jewellery and gold. When he asks them why this he is not given food, they tell him he did not perform Pitru Paksha Shraddh at Rameswaram and offer food to his ancestors. Karna says he was not aware who his ancestors were. Karna requests for some time grace to go back to earth and perform Mahalaya Paksha Shraddha, he is given fifteen days of grace period. This is the time period that coincides with Pitru Paksha ending in Mahalaya Amavasya. Many more references can be studied in the scriptures about the importance of PitruPaksh.
