Shraddha - Relief the Craving Souls of Your Ancestors

The Vedic Scriptures of Hindus depict that every one of us is indebted to our ancestors. Shradh is the way of paying tribute and homage to the souls of ancestors for earning their blessings.
According to holy Hindu scriptures, at the time of Pitr Paksha, souls of ancestors visit Earth leaving their abode of Yama. They come here for a special reason. It is to take the rites from their descendants. In case the ancestor has reborn somewhere then his life will become better in new life if his previous descendants will keep on performing Shraddha.

As per Hindu tradition, the death of a person is followed by a 13 day ritual and on the 13th day a ritual of 'Tehravi' or 'Sapindi' is performed. After this ritual it becomes necessary to perform Pitru Paksha of the dead person by his descendants. If people don't follow the ritual of Pitru Paksha, they suffer from the curse of the dead souls of their dead ancestors. Negative vibration starts revolving around their life. The growth and development ceases. Health and finance related issues arise. It doesn't happen always, only it happens in certain cases. Here we will also tell you the reasons behind these certain cases.
