What advantages come from performing shradh?

Shradh is a ritual performed in memory of and to assist departed family members. It is observed during set times as well as on holidays and special occasions. This Shradh ceremony is carried out annually during the Amavasya known as pitru Paksha on the anniversary of a person's passing. It is a Hindu tradition that starts on Purnima in the Ashwini month and is also known as Mahalayapitru paksha.

Goals, Advantages, and Importance of Shradh

A. Giving the pitars who have reached the Pitrulok (Region of the Pitars) momentum for their future trip through the Shradh rituals.

B. Fulfilling the wishes and aspirations of the deceased members of our family lineage who, as a result of their unfulfilled aspirations, have not gained momentum, meaning that they are stuck in the inferior regions rather than progressing to the superior regions. Hence giving their continued travel momentum.

C. Some pitars avoid Pitrulok because of their nasty activities. They join the ghost species as a result of their karma. The Shradh ceremonies are carried out in order to free them from that species.


Since everything we offer during these days directly reaches the deceased, it is thought that performing Shradh on these days is extremely fortunate. It aids in the soul's peaceful repose. On Amavasya, the final day of the lunar month, shradh can be done. The well-known purohit service in Varanasi, Kashi Kshetra Purohit, offers purohit for shradha puja in Varanasi. From our website, you can quickly obtain Purohit in Kashi for Pitrukaryas. Varanasi is also where you may find the best Telugu purohit or Tamil purohit.

The three forms of shradh are described in the Matsya Purana. Three different types of shradh are practised: one daily, one sporadically, and one intentionally (Kamya). The ceremonies for deceased ancestors are known as Pitru Paksha Shardh in North and East India, Aadi Amavasai in Tamilnadu, KarikadakaVavu Bali in Kerala, and Amavasi rituals in various states or areas. The Pandits for Varanasi's Pitru Pooja assist the soul of the deceased in achieving moksha, or salvation.

The pandits for shradhkaryas in Varanasi discuss the trip of the dead and the rituals dedicated to them for their safe travel towards their destiny by studying the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita. In the beginning, the purohits for the shradhkaryas in Varanasi were guided by the Agni, Garuda, Matsya, and Vayu Puranas, which explain the entire significance of shradh.

According to the Matsya Purana, on the occasion of Pitru Paksha Shradh, Agni, Vasus (the name of a key class of Vedic gods), and Rudras—the name of a Vedic storm-god—serve as mediators. During these times, the pandits for Varanasi's shradhkaryas execute the rituals and present food to the ancestors, who then bless the people carrying out the ceremonies. This is the result of a blessing from Lord Yama, the Hindu mythology's representation of the god of death.

For those with forgotten death dates or for those who pass away in violent or accidental ways, Pitru Paksha Shradh is offered. When this pitru paksha is in effect, those who have not yet completed their annual barsi or shradh can do so with the assistance of Pandits for Shradhkaryas in Varanasi.
