Pitru Paksha 16 days to remember your ancestors
How to Calculate Shradh day for the departed soul and what all to do:
Poornima of Bhadra Month falls on 10th September 2022 in Indian lunar calendar which marks the start of Pitra Paksha for 2022 and precisely it starts in Krishna Paksha (Waning Moon Period) of ASHWIN month of Hindu calendar which starts on Saturday 10th Sep 2022, and it ends with New Moon Day on 25th September 2022.
This is the time to pay respects to departed souls of loved ones and ancestors whom you lost in your life by God’s will.
You are advised to perform Shradh pooja as per his/her Tithi (Hindu calendar day) of death.
The person who dies on the date of Shukla Paksha (Waxing moon period) or Krishna Paksha (Waning Moon Period) of any month, his Shradh Karma is performed on the same date (Lunar Tithi) of Pitru Paksha.
Like for example on 10th Sep 2022 (Purnima day), Shradh can be performed only for those people who died on Poornima or full moon day on any tithi.
You can check Tithi of departed soul by googling the lunar calendar tithi on that date, time and place of death and accordingly you can know the Shradh day for your beloved one or you can ask me for the same in comments section.
If you do not know the date of death or you cannot calculate – Then perform the Shradh on 25th Sep,2022, the new moon day and last Shradh day.
