PITRU POOJA: IMPORTANCE OF UGADI DAYS

Excellent Days for doing Pitru Pooja (or) Pitru Tharpanam:

The importance of Ugadi Days:


Ugadi = Yuga + Adi. Here the Yuga means the era @ a longer period of time mentioned in the Hinduism. A complete Yuga has 4 age cycle namely

1. Kretha Yuga has 17,28,000 years
2. Treta Yuga has 12,96,000 years
3. Dwapara Yuga has 8,64,000 years
4. Kali Yuga. has 4,32,000 years

Adi means beginning @ Ugadi means the start day of an era. Thus the day, when the Kretha Yuga had started is called as "Kretha Ugadi". 

Similarly the starting day of the Yuga's are called as: 

1. Kretha Ugadi
2. Treta Ugadi
3. Dwapara Ugadi
4. Kali Ugadi.

1. Kretha Ugadi: The Kretha Yuga had started on the Sukla Paksha Tritya Thithi in the month of  Chaitra (Sanskrit).  

2. Tretha Yuga: The Tretha Yuga had started on the Sukla Paksha Navami Thithi in the month of Kartiga (Sanskrit). 

3. Dwapara Yuga: The Dwapara Yuga had started on the Krishna Paksha Tryodasi Thithi in the month of Bhadapada (Sanskrit). 

4. Kali Yuga: The Kali Yuga had started on the Amavasya Day in the month of Magha (Sanskrit). 

Anyone who does the Pitru Pooja (or) Pitru Tharpanam in these days would get results that are equivalent to doing Shraddham for 1000 Years. 

1. If the Pitru Tharpanam is done on the Amavasya Day on the month of Magha comes with Sathaya Nakshatra, then the Pitru's would remain highly satisfied and they bless their entire generations.

2. If the Pitru Tharpanam is done on the Amavasya Day on the month of Magha comes with Dhanista Nakshatra, it would deliver the results equivalent to the Pitru Pooja is done for 16,000 Years. 

3.  If the Pitru Tharpanam is done on the Amavasya Day on the month of Magha comes with Purattathi (P Bhadra) Nakshatra, then the Pitru's would remain highly satisfied and sleep for thousand of years.

PITRA DOSHA: IMPLICATION OF NEGLECTING THE AGED PARENTS

Important Duty of the Son/Daughter to their Aged Parents: 

As per the Hindu Vedas, the Pitra Dosha is likely to affect the offspring of the Person (or) the Family who has neglected their aged Parents (or) aged Peoples.

1. Every male must look after their aged parents with care and respect; the women (daughter-in-law) must not abuse them and ill treat them

2. Every male must also look after their father-in-law and mother-in-law, if they don't have any male offspring.

3. Every male must look after their family elders, if they are destitute and financially poor.

What do you mean by "Looking after" the aged Parents/Peoples?

1. The Parents/Elders must be treated with care and respect.

2. Sending money or food doesn't mean that the Parents & Persons are looked after well.

3. Physical care and attention must be given @ aged Parents/Peoples must not be isolated or forced to remain or live alone.

4. Mis-treating the aged peoples because of their age, status, relationship or economical strength or disability in physical or mental health doesn't indicate that the aged peoples are looked after well.

Cardinal Duties of every Son and the Daughter: 

1. "Jiva-dhor vaa-kya kara-nath": Every one must obey their Parents during their lifetime and must look after their Parents with great care and comfort throughout their lifetime.

2. "Prath-yaf-tham Poori Poja-nath": Every must do the following Karma after the death of their Parents.

a) Must do all the rituals (Apara-samaskarangal) for the first 12 days from the date of death.

b) Must do all the monthly rituals (Masigam) for the first 1 Year from the month of death.

c) Must compulsorily do the Yearly rituals (Shraddham) on the completion of first year from the date of death.

3. "Gaya-yam Pinda tha-nacha": Everyone must give "Pinda-Tharpanam" in Gaya (Bihar) under the Vishnu patham (Feet of Lord Maha Vishnu) and must do the Gaya Shraddham in the Palguni river running alongside.

If a pesron is able to perform all these 3 conditions, then he/she will be gifting a perfect and excellent life for his/her future generations without any form of Pitra Dosha.

WHY DOES YOUR PITHRU DOSHA PARIHARAM FAIL TO DELIVER RESULTS?

We have seen number of peoples getting affeted in their life despite performing Pitra Dosha Pariharam in an excellent manner. Some of the peoples, would perform Tharpanam (monthly basis) and Shraddam (yearly basis) with a clock-wise precision. Still they suffer from the malefic effects of the Pitra Dosh. Let us see the reason behind the failure of Pithru Dosha Pariharam.

1. If a person fails to look after his aged parents and/or aged in-laws and/or any aged person in the family. Please note that looking after the aged people doesn't mean that sending money to them on regular basis or placing them in an Old Age Home. If the aged people are isolated and compelled to live in isolation is like inviting a disaster to themselves and to the future generations. The Pitra Puja or Pitra Pariharam will not yield any results to the family, where the aged people are isolated or insulted or forced to fend for themselves.

2. The Pitru Dosha Pariharam will not deliver any results, if the person lives in a house (rented or owned) which is built on the land by enroaching any water bodies.

3. The Pitru Dosha Pariharam will not deliver any results, if the person lives in a house (rented or owned) which is built on any type of land, which was earlier used by the Public or built by obstructing the public usage.

4. The  Pitru Dosha Pariharam will not deliver any results, if the person lives in a house (rented or owned) which is built by enroaching the land owned by any temples or trusts.

5. The  Pitru Dosha Pariharam will not deliver any results, if the property issues are not resolved between the siblings.

6. The Pitru Dosha Pariharam will not deliver any results, if the ancestral properties or any type of assets are divided in an unequal manner.

7. The  Pitru Dosha Pariharam will not deliver any results, if any women in the family are bullied or harassed within the family.

8. The  Pitru Dosha Pariharam will not deliver any results, if those Pariharam are done with the money, which was earned through any unthical or immoral methods.

9. The  Pitru Dosha Pariharam will not deliver any results, if the family members isolate any particular member of the family, while doing the Shraddam or Tharpanam.

IMPORTANCE OF SEASME SEEDS

What is the importance of Yel (Tamil)/Tilli (Hindi)/Seasme (English)?

The Seasme seeds are considered to be sacred and it satisfies the hunger and the thirst of your ancestors. When the seasme seeds are offered to the dead ancestors along with the water, it slowly reduces the binding relationship between the dead ancestors and their erstwhile members of the family. When the bond between the dead ancestors and their family members are broken, then the departed soul would be ready to make another journey for a re-birth in another family. Thus the Seasme seeds acts as a catalyst to break the bond between the living family members and the dead ancestors.

Do's and Dont's while doing Pithru Tharpanam:

1. Never do this Pithru Tharpanam without taking head bath and your body & mind should be clean and calm.

2. Must do this Pithru Tharpanam on empty stomach (no coffee/water too)

3. Never eat Non Vegetarian foods on the day that you do this ritual.

4. It is highly sinful to offer Non Vegetarian foods/alochol to the departed souls.

5. It is highly damaging to mix seasme seeds with any non vegetarian foods.

6. Should not take bath (for the whole day) after completing Pithru Tharpanam or Pujas.

7. It is always good to offer foods to those who are in really need of it.

8. Never do Pithru Tharpanam on your Jenma Nakshatras.

9. It is good to visit temples after completing the Pithru Tharpanam.

IMPORTANCE OF MANIKARNIKA LAKE

Manikarnika Lake is an ideal place for doing Pithru Tharpanam especially during the "Mahalaya Amavasya". Lord Vishnu had created a beautiful pond by using his armour "The Chakra" in a very bright spot in this world. The Lord wanted her sister Goddess Parvathi and the Lord Shiva to take bath in that particular lake without anyone's disturbances.

The Goddess Parvathi wanted to set right her jewellery before taking the bath. So the Goddess adjusted her jewellery by looking into the water in the Pond. At that time her necklace jewellery got loosened and the bead (Mani) fell into the lake. To take out the beads (Mani), Lord Shiva also looked at the water in the Pond. At that particular time, his Karna Kundalam (Jewellery) also fell into the water. Thus the Pond gets sanitized and becomes a holy place. Since the Mani (beads of Goddess Parvathi) and Karna Kundalam (Jewellery) fell into the pond, it is being called as Manikarnika Lake.

By doing Pithru Tharpanam in the Manikarnika Lake especially during the Mahalaya Amavasya, it produces immense benefits to the family.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER DEATH? (PART 1)

As per the Hindu Vedic teachings, a soul will not die; but only the body perishes. But the soul after leaving the body carries its virtue and sins that has been earned during its life time. The Soul can not take a rebirth immediately. It has to live in Pitra Loga or Pithru Loga (Anscestor's World) after its departure from the Earth.

The Pitra Loga or Pithru Loga's one day equals our Earth's one year. Thus doing Pitra Tharpanam or Pithru Tharpanam once in a year means feeding and remembering your departed anscestors on daily basis. If a Soul fails to get this service done by his Sons/Daughters, then it has to wait for 100's of years for a rebirth; still such time arrives, the Soul waits for its turn in Pitra Loga or Pithru Loga.

Angered by the delay, the Souls curse their own siblings. This brings the worst form of Pitra Dosha or Pithru Dosham. This leads to cascading effects on Marriage, Child birth, Harmonius living and physical and mental illness on the entire family.

If a person performs Pitra Tharpanam or Pithru Tharpanam on the stipulated days, the Soul would be able to prepare for another rebirth; so that it will have a chance to earn good virtues and offload all sins. Thus the Soul becomes very happy and bless their siblings. 


Thus a Soul would be able to arrange for its rebirth; rebirth would be calculated on the basis of its virtue. A Soul with good virtue will make a rebirth in a family that can deliver good things in the lifetime. Similarly a Soul with lot of Sins to its credit will end up in a family, where there are lot of sorrows and sadness that surrounds the family.

BEST TIME FOR PITRA PUJA

Which is the best time to do Pitra Puja?


Garuda asks Lord Narayana about the best timings of doing Pitra Puja or Pithru Puja.

Lord Narayana replies that every person who has born in this world is bound to worship their anscestors on regular basis; 365 days in a year.

Garuda asks Lord Narayana that if a person is not able to do this puja on daily basis, what else he can do?

Lord Narayana replies that everyone must perform puja atleast on the 96 shrartha days in a year.

When Garuda asks Lord Narayana for those who are not able to do this; what should be done?

Lord Narayana replies that atleast once in a month (@12 times a year) either on 1. New Moon Day (Amavasya) 2. First day of Tamil month 3. Or atleast on the thithi of his/her immediate departed ancestors.

Garuda asks for the people who do not perform this puja too.

Lord Narayana replies that everyone should perform this puja on the yearly thithi of his/her immediate departed ancestors. Because our ancestors live in a separate world called PITRA LOGAM. In that world their one day equals our 1 year (365 days).

Thus by doing this Pitra pooja atleast once during a year, everyone feeds his anscestors on daily basis; remember them on daily basis too. Failure to do this, would bring all kinds of troubles to the entire family through Pitra Dosha.
