Sarva Pitru Amavasya Shradh
14th October 2023
While the entire Shradh Paksha or Pitru Paksha holds an extremely important place in the Hindu culture, the last day of Shradh holds special significance due to its unique relevance. The Shradh Puja that is performed on the last day, i.e on the Sarva Pitru Amavasya or the Mahalaya Amavasya is considered highly important. The Sarva Pitru Amavasya falls on the last day/tithi of the Pitru Paksha/Shradh Paksha. Note that Shradh Puja is done on the same tithi as the day when the ancestor passed away. However, on the auspicious day of Sarva Pitru Amavasya, a devotee can perform the Shradh Puja for their ancestor if they aren’t sure about the day or tithi when they passed away.
What makes the Sarva Pitru Amavasya so special?
- Sarva Pitru Amavasya occurs on the last day of the Pitru Paksha or Shradh Paksha.
- On this specific tithi, people can perform the Shradh of all their ancestors irrespective of when they died and how they died.
- Therefore if for some reason, a person is not able to perform the Shradh of his ancestors on the dedicated tithis/dates during the Pitru Paksha, he can choose to do it on Sarva Pitru Amavasya.
- Also, if the date of the death of a person is unknown, then the Shradh rituals of such a person can be performed on Sarva Pitru Amavasya.
- Many people who know the tithis of the demise of their ancestors but for some unavoidable reasons are not able to perform the Shradh rituals of their ancestors on their respective tithis of demise, choose to perform cumulative Shradh rituals for all of them on Sarva Pitru Amavasya.
- Since the Pitru Paksha period starts on the Pratipada day, the next day of Purnima in the month of Bhadrapada, therefore the Shradh rituals of those who died on Purnima tithi are done on the Sarva Pitru Amavasya day only.
NOTE: The Shradh Puja for those who passed away on Purnima Tithi is to be performed on the Sarva Pitru Amavasya.
The date of Sarva Pitru Amavasya this year is 14th October 2023.
