Pratipada Shraddha - For Maternal Grandparents

Pratipada Shraddha, also known as Padwa Shraddha, Prathami Shraddh and Padyami Shraddha, is the first day in the period of fifteen days of Pitru Paksha. It is observed on the first day of either the bright lunar fortnight or in the dark lunar fortnight in the month of Bhadrapada (August-September), according to the Hindu calendar. The most auspicious time to start the rituals of Shraddha is during afternoon.

Significance

The day is considered suitable to offer homage to maternal grandparents. Shraddha can be performed on this very day even if one doesn’t know the actual date of death. If there is no son in the house of the maternal grandparents then the ritual can be performed by any other member of the family and pray for the peace of the deceased. The customs of pitru tarpan can also be performed on the day after the rituals of Shraddha are completed. Anyone who has died on the Padyami tithi can be paid homage on Pratipada Shraddha. People then perform charity and feed Brahmins. It is one of the caste of Hindus. They are known for their knowledge of ancient, sacred scriptures The rituals can be performed at home or in a temple, though many people prefer visiting the banks of a holy river.

It is believed that by performing Pratipada Shraddha one’s house can be blessed with happiness and prosperity as dead ancestors come to earth and provide their blessing to their family members.
