Mahalaya Amavasya is the last day of Mahalaya Paksha, the dark fortnight of Aswayuja ( Puraatasi month in tamil), which falls in September or October. During this particular period of fortnight, we can worship our ancestors and offer tharpanam on the death date( Thithi) and also offer Tharpanam to others, no matter whether they are related to us or not. This period is known as Punya Kala.
Mahalaya Paksha - SIgnificance
Mahalaya amavasya is a very special amavasya to worship our ancestors. The fortnight (16 days period) usually during mid Sep-Oct months, starting from the day next to Full Moon Day (Pournami) to the New Moon Day ( Amavasya day) that generally occurs in the tamil month of Purattasi or Bhadrapada in Sanskrit is known as "Mahalaya Paksha". It is strongly believed that the ancestors (Pithrus) are granted permission to visit and stay with their families during this Mahalaya Paksha period.
The entire 15 days period of Mahalaya Paksha is considered to be sacred for offering oblations to our departed ancestors. Performing Mahalaya Tharpanam on the days of Maha Bharani / MadhyAshtami / Thriyodhasi – is considered equivalent to performing Gaya Srardham. Food Charity (Anna Dhanam ) done during this period will bring better things in life, than that of doing it on the normal days. Even though the Mahalaya tharpanam is done for the sake of our ancestors,we get lot of benefits.They bless us with abundant health, wealth, prosperity, peace…etc in our life and thus giving back to us more than what we offer to them.
Ideal days to Perform :
It is advisable to perform Mahalaya Tharpanam with atleast 5 Vedic Brahmins to represent as follows
NOTE : If some one wishes to do with lesser shastrigals, they may do it, but no lesser than three shadtrigals.
Required Things -Suggested Quantity :
Speciality: During the Mahalayam,the tharpanam we do is not only for our own forefathers but also for “Karunya Pithrus “ . Karunya Pithrus could be our departed relatives,friends, Pet animals, any creatures, Insects, Plants, trees and even strangers. We can do Tharpanam for those who we feel we are indebted to. This is very special about Mahalaya Tharpanam.
“Ancestor blessing is considered very important to lead a a very very happy and peaceful life”
