Mahalaya paksha 2015: Special Days For Ancestors

28th September to 12th October 2015

Mahalaya Paksha also known as Pitru Paksha begins from September 28 and ends on October 12.

These 15 days are dedicated to the ancestors or forefathers. Pleasing the Pitrus, honouring them is considered important in our tradition. It is what we are today because of all the things given to us by them.

Performing Annadhaan, Go-Dhaan etc, during these days brings peace to all the departed souls no matter they belong to our family or not. This inturn brings peace to the world. It is said in scriptures that it is through the tail of the Gomatha, even the unfulfilled souls attain Pithru Lokha.

Given below are the dates and the Thithi’s. You can choose your date and participate in Go-Puja, Go-Bhojan or Annadhaan (poor feeding).

Gho-Pooja: Gho-pooja is a highly auspicious pooja done as a parikara for doshas and for flourishing life as Gaumatha is an abode of all devathas. Worshipping Her connects us to the Supreme Divine irrespective of any forms. This puja can be performed by the patrons themselves with the guidance of Mathaji or shall be performed by Mathaji solely on any occasions with prior intimation and with a contribution of Rs. 1500/-. Well-wishers who would like to perform Gho-pooja and cannot come in person may mail/sms us the date & family details. Those who come in person may bring Thambulam (Vetrilai, paaku, coconut, fruit), and Flowers. Prasad for offering to gaumatha that is, Sweet Pongal shall be prepared by us. Vastra for offering will also be provided by us.

Gho-Bhojan: Feeder (you can see under feeder requirements), spinach can be sponsored with a contribution of Rs. 1500/-. You can personally come and give with prior intimation or can mail us your date and we shall do it on your behalf.
