Pitru Paksha is a sacred period in Hinduism that culminates in Mahalaya Amavasya. During this time, one pays homage to their ancestors.
They express gratitude to their forefathers whose experiences and wisdom become the foundation of their present. Families perform rituals and offer charity so that the departed souls ascend to the heavens in peace and bless their children generously.
Feeding is considered one of the noblest acts of charity during this period.
HONOUR YOUR ANCESTORS BY FEEDING IN THEIR NAME
This year, Pitru Paksha will be observed from 29 September to 14 October.
As part of your observances, consider offering nutritious food to school children and homeless mothers in ashrams and receive abundant blessings from your ancestors.
Honour your forefathers by making someone smile. Donate in their name to feed government school children and homeless mothers in ashrams.
