Important facts

  • Pitru means ancestors and Paksha means fortnight. Therefore, Pitru Paksha is a 15 lunar day period during which the Hindus pay homage to their ancestors mainly by way of food offerings.
  • The period commences with the full moon day or Purnima that takes place immediately after Ganesh Chaturthi and ends with the new moon day or Amavasya known as Sarva Pitru Amavasya or Mahalaya Amavasya. This last day is the most important and highly sacred day.
  • Ancient story relates to the Mahabharata hero, Karna.
  • During his lifetime, the Karna generously donated all kinds of gold and silver but not food.
  • Thus, after his death, when he went to the higher regions, he received a lot of treasures in the form of gold and silver but no food.
  • The worried Karna prayed to Lord Yama, the God of death and with his grace, he returned to the earth during this Paksha or fortnight.
  • He donated plenty of food to the needy on all fifteen days. On the last day, he went back to the Pitru Lok with a lot of contentment and fulfillment.
