Information about Shraadh Karma Puja
In Indian Culture, the day starting from Purnima (full moon night) of Shukla Paksh of Bhadrapad month till the Amavasya (No moon night) of the Krishna Paksh of Ashwin month is considered to be the period dedicated to our departed ancestors. This period of 15 days is known as "Pitra Paksh or the Shraadh Kaal". This period is said to be very auspicious and favourable for performing special rituals known as “Shraadh Karma" for appeasing our late Ancestors and getting their blessings.

Shraadh Karma Puja is performed either on the date of Ancestor's demise or on the same Tithi during the Pitra Paksha. In cases, where an exact Tithi of ancestor's death is not known, a Pitru Paksh Pooja can be done on the Last day of Shradh Paksha, also known as Sarva Pitri Amavasya.

These rituals of Shraadh Karma are supposed to be done by each and every person, no matter which caste, creed or culture they belong to because it is compulsory for everyone according to Ancient Vedic Texts. According to Brahma Purana, a person who performs Shraadh Karma with full faith and devotion is successful in appeasing Brahma, Rudra, Ashwini Kumar, Sun, Fire, Air in addition to his Ancestors and as a result he is blessed with Health, Wealth and Happiness. In our Ancient Texts, the Elder son has the rightful authority and advantage to perform Shraadh Karma for his parents which benefits the entire family.

It is said that a person owes debts to his ancestors and he can set himself free from all these debts i.e. Pitra Rin only by performing Shraadh Karma during the Pitra Paksh or the Shraadh Paksh. If any of his ancestors have not done these Shraadh Karmas on their part then these unfulfilled Karmas get more complicated and gets converted into Doshas known as Pitra Doshas and they are reflected by placement of certain planets in the horoscope as well as due to certain problems and sufferings which affects the entire family. In a family, where there is a Pitra Dosha, the following indications may be found:
  • Diseases occur unusually more often in such family affecting one or the other member at all the times. Sometimes it is difficult even to diagnose the actual cause of the disease.
  • They face persistent financial problems due to disturbances and losses in Business / Jobs / Services.
  • There is absence of Peace & Harmony in the family due to which there is always a situation of stress, tensions & restlessness.
  • At times, the progeny may have defects by birth or there are no children in the family.
  • Marriage related complications, delay in Marriage, etc.
  • Unknown and Unexplained Fears and Phobias due to which there is constant restlessness, problems and obstructions, feeling of negativity and depression in family especially affecting the head of the family.
However, at times, a person is not able to get the Shraadh Karma performed for his ancestors due to multiple unavoidable reasons as for an example, being located in a foreign country. In such cases, Divine Rudraksha relieves you by providing an option of online puja. We get this Shraadh Karma performed by very competent priests on client’s behalf for their respective Ancestors.
