Pitru Paksha is starting tomorrow ie September 6. It lasts for 15 days. But due to the deterioration of the dates this time the paternity will only be of 14 days. During this time, acts that please the ancestors are carried out. This is called Shraaddh only. Shraaddh is also called sacrifice of ancestors. It is believed that during this time, your father’s debt is lowered.

In it, on 19th September, the Shraaddh Amavasya (Sarv Pantri Amavasya) i.e. the father will be immersed, and 20 will be celebrated on the occasion of bathing. The new moon day is taking place on September 19 at 11:16 a.m., which will be 20 till 10:22 am.
Shraaddh has already begun in Assam since today. Today is the Shraaddh of Purnima.
It is also said that during this time the paternal grandmothers come again on the earth and see their relatives. Therefore, the body is donated in the parent state. In fact, in the form of a donation, the ancestors are given food, water etc. This is called Shraaddh only.
