Aadi Amavasya - Praying to Ancestors

‘Aadi’ is the month in the Tamil calendar, corresponding to the July-August period in Gregorian calendar whereas ‘Amavasya’ means a no moon day. Thus, Aadi Amavasya is a no moon day in a Tamil month that is considered sacred for dedicating prayers to one’s dead ancestors and forefathers. Worshipping Lord Muruga on this day might also prove beneficial.

Pitru Tharpanam

According to Hinduism, after dying, the soul of the dead passes from this world to the eternal one. They are judged according to their deeds and then sent to another realm to gain either punishment or reward. The transition from this world to another can be a difficult one, or a soul may experience problems in doing so. If that is the case, then a person closest to the dead might experience problems in his own life which can be in his marriage, education, job or any other arena. Therefore, it is important to help the forefathers in their smooth transition, and that can be easily done on Aadi Amavasya.

The ritual of offering prayers and food to ancestors is known as Pitru Tharpanam. A priest who is well versed in all the scriptures and who is spiritually enlightened can be appointed, and he will chant specific Mantras. He will also guide you in performing all kinds of rituals like taking a dip into a sacred river or offering flowers in the name of the dead person or making a charity. This will help in a peaceful crossover. Fasting on this day also proves beneficial, though one might consume one meal a day. Holy places like Agnitheertham It is a sacred place situated in Rameswaram (Tamil Nadu) which is attended by pilgrims and couples wanting childrenin Rameswaram, Thriveni Sangamam in Kanyakumari and banks of Kaveri River An Indian River flowing along the Western Ghats and in two States which are Karnataka and Tamil Naduare filled with worshippers.

One can also communicate with the ancestors personally, in the comfort of one’s home by putting their picture near one’s pillow while sleeping and lighting a candle in front of the picture. Offer them a prayer and their favorite food. They might come in one’s dreams, bless them and ease all the troubles.

Benefits of Pitru Tharpanam

To succeed in life, it is important to gain the blessings of ancestors. If they are not peaceful in their abode, then the close members of their family can experience hardships. Every aspect of life can be badly influenced. That is why it is necessary to honor them to gain success and an easy going life.
