Shradh 2019: Rest In Peace Our Ancestors

Shraddh is one of the most significant time to remember our ancestors and pray for the departed souls to rest in peace. As per the Hindu Calendar, during the time of Pitru Paksha, if you offer prayers and perform certain rituals for your ancestors, you will be blessed by them and their souls will rest in peace.

Every year, Tarpan takes place during the time of Shraddh dates. The same rituals will be performed when Shraddha in 2019 commences. We will pray for the departed souls to rest in peace during the Shradh in 2019 .

Before we go ahead and pray for the peace of our ancestors and the dead, let’s find out the significance of Shraddha.

The time of Shraadh liberates the soul from the cycle of life and death resulting in salvation. Hence, performing Shraddh during the time of Pitru Paksha is considered extremely important for the departed souls to rest in peace. Tarpan, during the time of Shradh, is equally necessary in order to get rid of Pitra Dosh (bad effects due to the non-performance of rituals of the departed souls). Let’s pray for the peace of the departed souls with full faith and devotion during the days of Shraddh in 2019.

The ritual of performing Shraddh frees the departed soul. Read on to know more about the Shraddha dates in 2019.
