Trimbakeshwar is a very ancient temple dedicated to Lord Shiva and is among the Dwadash Jyotirlings in India. This temple is located about 28 km from Nashik (Nasik meaning nose) and about 117 km from Shirdi, in the State of Maharashtra.
Kushavarta, a pond in this temple is believed to be the origin for River Godavari. Sage Gautama used “darbha” (Kusha grass) to round up Ganga and hence the name. Simhastha Kumbhamela that takes place every once in 12 years is a ritual followed by millions of devotees. Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwar are represented by three separate lingams here. The temple is situated between three hills namely Brahmagiri, Nilagiri and Kalagiri.
Godavari River is the second largest river in India and originates from Trayambakeshwar. Maharshi Gautam prayed to Lord Shiva and brought Ganga to absolve himself of sins. Sage Gautama was tricked by a group of Brahmins who created a mythical cow. This mythical cow strayed into Sage Gautama’s fields. When Gautama Rishi tried to shoo her away, she died. As Ganga removed the sins of killing the cow (Gau Hatya), the river came to be called Godavari.

Pitru Paksha Shraddh 2020 | Mahalaya Amavasya Shradh 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 Shradh, Pind Daan or Pitru Tarpan 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/Mahalaya Paksh 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 Shraddh 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 any Shraddh 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 Shraddha, he is given fifteen days of grace period. This is the time period that coincides with Pitru Paksha ending in Pitru Paksha Mahalaya Amavasya. Many more references can be studied in the scriptures about the importance of Pitrupaksh.
Procedure of Pitru Paksha Shradh at Trimbkeshwar:
Pitru Paksha Shradh Puja Vdhi varies according to the Hindu tradition being followed. Ashvalayana, Baudhayana, Apastamba are some of the Sutras followed to observe Pitru Paksh Shradh at Trimbkeshwar.

Narayan Bali, a necessary ritual described in Garuda Purana for all cases of abnormal death, is explained as follows: death by fasting, by animals, by accident, by arson/fire, by a curse, or any unusual disease which suddenly caused untimely death. These rites help the Atma (soul) to liberate and transcend. Narayan Bali consists of the same rituals as a Hindu funeral done to help the souls attain mukti. Vedic Mantras are chanted to invoke such souls. Narayanabali pooja should be performed by those who feel that any of the kin or relatives are deprived of regular annual ceremonies. However, the priest/astrologer should be consulted before deciding to perform.
Narayana bali finds mention in Parashar Smriti. In Kaliyuga, Parashar Smriti has been upheld as the tradition to follow.
