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.
