Pitru Paksha is a 16-day period during which one pays respect to one's dead ancestors in the form of Tarpan or Shradh Puja in order to liberate them, please them, beg for forgiveness, and be rid of Pitru Dosha (ancestral curse). According to the Brahma Purana and other Vedic texts, devotion and rituals performed during Pitru Paksha assist the spirits of one's ancestors find peace and go to the next world. According to Shastras, ancestors who have passed on to the next world come to this world during Pitru Paksha to bless their children, grandchildren, and future generations as a result of a blessing from Lord Yam raj. Thus, doing Shradh Puja at this time is very essential, both for one's own well-being and for the spirits of one's ancestors. . This is an annual ritual done for the ancestors that is performed either on their date/tithi of death, or on Pitra Paksha as per their departure tithi. Sarva Pitru Amavasya is the last day of Pitru Paksha and is also called Mahalaya and it marks the beginning of Navratri festivity. It is believed that Goddess Durga was descended on the Earth on this day. On this Shradh of all ancestors can be done irrespective of their date/tithi of death. This year, this day of Sarva Pitru Amavasya or Mahalaya Shradh falls on 6th October 2021.

Shradh is a social and religious obligation imposed on all male Hindus. The significance attributed to the birth of a son in India reflects the necessity to guarantee that a male descendent would conduct the Shradh ritual after one's death. Even ladies nowadays do Shradh for their ancestors. The ritual is carried out in memory of the dead father, grandpa, and great-grandfather, as well as the mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Its purpose is to feed, protect, and assist the souls of the deceased on their journey from the lower to the higher realms, prior to their reincarnation and reappearance on Earth.
Shradh is celebrated in order for the spirits of the ancestors to find peace and freedom. The significance and relevance of Shradh puja is described in many Hindu Puranas, including Agni Purana, Garuda Purana, and Matysa Purana. According to the Garuda Purana, spirits who do not receive Pind daan, Tarpan, and other offerings roam aimlessly on Earth.
The Shradh ritual is performed to satisfy and appease the unfulfilled wants of spirits stuck in our world as a result of strong cravings that remain in the soul even after death. The Shradh rites assist in liberating these spirits, cleansing them of all misdeeds, and allowing them to rest in peace. Performing Shradh rites for the dead is regarded a meritorious deed, and it is thought that when one's ancestors are happy, even Gods are pleased, and the native is showered with benefits of peace, wealth, development, and the well-being of one's offspring.
