Sarva Mahalaya Paksha Amavasya 2008

Sarva Mahalaya Paksha Amavasya - Dedicated to departed ancestors. Amavasya is nothing but the New Moon day. Mahalaya Paksha means the fourteen days of Mahalaya. This year, Mahalaya Amavasya falls on 28th September, 2008, Mahalaya Paksha ends on this day. This is the most important Amavasya than any other, since our departed ancestors (Pithru) are ready to bless their family on this occasion. During this period, thousands of people who lost their parents took a holy dip in various rivers and sea like Rameshwaram (Holy Pilgrimage) and offering Pithru Tharpanam to satisfy the ancestors. Praying and offering Tharpanam on this occasion are the best ways to get the grace and blessings of the departed ancestors. Another important thing in this Amavasya is that to provide food and water to others (Annadhanam). As we all know, the fundamental necessities of human being are food, cloth and shelter. Rather than donating cloth and providing shelter, donating food is great. To survive in this world, we need air, food and water, hence donating food is the best way to get the blessings of the Supreme Lord and departed ancestors and also bring it to you in the right path after your death.
