Paramjit Kumar/Devaghar: Pitrapaksha month is about to begin. During this 15-day long festival, pinda daan, tarpan and sraddha are performed at Gaya for the appeasement of the ancestral spirits. Pitrapaksha runs from the counterpart of Shuklapaksha in the month of Vado to the new moon of the month of Ashwin, i.e. the Pitrapaksha starts from 30th September to 14th October.
Donation is as important as pinda daan, shraddha and tarpana for fathers. Women who cannot donate pinds for the peace of their ancestors can receive donations and blessings from their ancestors. So let’s find out from Deoghar Jyotish Acharya what women should donate during Pitrah Paksha?
If there are no men in the house, women should donate
Renowned astrologer Pandit Nandkishore Mudgal of Dewar said that during Pitra Paksha, Pindaana, Tarpan or Shraddha is performed for the peace of the paternal soul, thereby making the ancestors happy and the family goes to Vaikuntha with happiness and prosperity. On the other hand, those who do not have men in their homes and women for some reason cannot go to Gaya to give pindana, if they donate something to a poor man or a Brahmin to please the patriarchs, with blessings. The financial condition of the ancestral house will be good, there will be a happy atmosphere in the family, wealth and progeny will increase.
Women can donate all these things
On Pithraksha days, women should donate bananas to appease their ancestors. Banana fruit is very dear to Lord Vishnu and it is Lord Vishnu who bestows moksha, so one can donate banana to please the ancestors. Also, if women feed a poor person or a Brahmin in their house facing south, then the patriarchs are pleased. His blessings bring happiness and prosperity to the house.
Donate white sweets
On Father’s Day, donate white sweets to the poor for Father’s Day. Ancestors loved white color very much. White color symbolizes positivity. It is believed that eating white sweets pleases the ancestors, so donate white sweets to the ancestors.
Donate to Laga Pan
On Pitrupaksha days, offer betel to a poor or Brahmin for the appeasement of the ancestral spirits. Donation of drink will increase the wealth in the house. There will be no shortage of money.
At the time of Pithraksha, Brahmins are fed curds and curds. The ancestors were satisfied with this. Yogurt is more important than milk for parents. So you can also donate yogurt. By doing this there is always peace in the house.
