May the blessings of God be with you and your family.
Today September 17, 2016 is the beginning of a very auspicious month for Lord Vishnu, Puratassi month.
Today also the beginning of Mahalaya Paksha for 14 days , from September 17,2016 till September 30, 2016.
This period is very important, it is called Mahalaya Paksha where we do pitru yagna, ancestral worship.
This period of time, all the ancestors who are connected through soul genes will come to your home and stay there for awhile and go back to Pitru loka on September 30,2016.
They come down and when they are welcomed in a proper manner, they will grant unlimited blessings, love and help to us.
We and our ancestor are connected through the soul, it is soul genetics.
What do we need to do ?
1. Be vegetarian throughout the month.
2. Attend temples as much as possible.
3. Do darpanam everyday at home which takes 1 to 2 minutes only. On the Amavasai day 30 of September , you can engage a priest to do elaborate darpanam or go to temples where they conduct it. Darpanam is basically feeding our ancestor. check at the YouTube below
4. Do annatham on this particular day and feed the poor and animals too.
It is your duty and dharma to observe the darpanam as only though our parent and their parent and their parent and it continues, that have taken human birth and continue there journey.
