Barhishadhas are souls that survive on Somras. Som means happiness and peace while Ras means juice. Acchoda, who belonged to the Barhishadha clan, was anguished that she was deprived of father’s affection and care. When she cried out for help, she was asked by the Pitrus, to take rebirth as the daughter of King Amavasu. Since Acchoda grew up in a princely family, she received the love and care from her father. She made arrangements for a Pitru puja to show her gratitude to the Pitrus. Since then, the custom of offering shraadh came into existence.

Darsha Amavasya – The day for tarpan of ancestor

Amavasya or Amavasi denotes the absence of the visibility of the moon in the sky. In the first quarter of the lunar month, this is said to be the first night. If we talk in symbolical terms, the period from Amavasya to Purnima is considered as the gradual awakening and transcendence of the moon into wholeness. On this auspicious day, Hindus perform tarpan for the departed souls.
