In Hinduism, Pitru Paksha is the rituals performed by relatives for the departed souls of dead ancestors, parents and relatives.

Shradh is not only donating heap of grains and alternative refreshments to the poor and Brahmins of the society, however it is a day that is completely dedicated to our ancestors. It has an intense philosophical and non secular meaning for hindu society. Mantras and prayers (bhajans) are chanted and along with that some rituals are done for the pacification of the departed or the relatives. These things gave a spiritual meaning to Shradha. On the additional hand, when you contribute to the needy and poor peoples, you do your spot to help the society. The day of Shradh also increases the morality and honesty in our nature. Shraddha takes us closer to god and our late ancestors.

Along with the poor peoples, Brahmins are also feed. It is supposed that the food fed to Brahmins straight reaches to the departed relatives. Buying of any new things and getting the haircut is strictly illegal during the time period of shraddha. Men should not even shave and wash their hairs during Shradh. Any ceremony or function is also prohibited to be performed during shraddha.

Shradh provides a way to departed souls to shadow a better life in their next birth.

According to South Indian Amavasyant calendar it falls in the lunar month of Bhadrapada beginning with the full moon day or day after full moon day.

According to North Indian Purnimant calendar this period falls in the lunar month of Ashwin beginning with the full moon day in Bhadrapada or next day of full moon day.1
