DEPARTED ANCESTOR RITUALS

May Your Ancestors Bless You with Good Health, Wealth, Prosperity and Enlightenment

Tharpanam

The secret of overcoming your problems!
According to Siddhas (South Indian Mystics) another main reason for all of our everyday problems besides planets is the departed spirits of our ancestors. Our role is that we should constantly connect to the departed ancestors to live a peaceful life.

Our departed forefathers / ancestors cannot come to this world whenever they think, except on Amavasai (New Moon), the starting day of every month and during Mahalaya Paksha. So they all will come in sookshma (means not visible to naked eyes) dehas and if we offer them the sesame (gingili) and water they accept that, and bless us directly.

There are only three times a year that we can strongly influence and help our departed ancestors elevated to higher plane where in return they will bless us for our well being.

During Amavasai (New Moon) the departed souls will visit the earth plane to bless their relations. Performing tantric rituals for them on this special day is very important for both our material and spiritual enhancement. They can bless us with greater health, wealth, prosperity and enlightenment

The answer is yes. But that is a more advanced procedure.

Tharpanam should be done at sunrise. There is a tradition that says that tharpanam should be done at noon. If this is your tradition, please do follow that.

You can do tharpanam right in the comfort of your home. But it is that much more effective to do it in temples and on the banks of sacred rivers. If you can do tharpanam in the Pitru Moksha temples and sacred spots, that would be the best. (Rameswaram Temple is one of the most powerful spot for tarpanam ritual)

If your ancestors are not resting peacefully, then they can cause much disruption and hardship in your life.

The most serious misconception regarding tharpanam is the idea that if the father is alive, the son should not do tharpanam. The son has a pitru debt just as the father does. So it is important to shed this misconception right away. The father can do pitru tharpanam and so can the son and the son’s son. In fact, if all three do it together, the pitrus will be very pleased!

Women can do pitru tharpanam just as well as men. Think of this key point: If there are no sons in a family, does that mean the ancestors should be starved of tharpanam? The answer is NO. The daughters can certainly do tharpanam. Preferably women should use white sesame seeds in their tharpanam.

The Process of Rebirth and The Cycle of Birth and Death

The ancestors must always be worshipped first…Hell and Heaven is right here among the species…we all must account for our actions-if you bark at people you will become a dog in the next life or gossip a lot will become a frog…when these ancestors are caught up in the lower levels of life then the cycle of birth and death ceased, and women in the family are unable to give birth to babies…causing extinction of the family.

May Your Ancestors Bless You with Good Health, Wealth, Prosperity and Enlightenment

Only once in a year a great celebration takes place in the Pitra loka (ancestral world) and only for 2 weeks. It is called the “Mahalaya Amavasai/ Fortnight”, right after the full moon day and ends on the Mahalaya New Moon day. This two week’s period is the most important period to appreciate your departed ancestors.

Mahalaya Paksha is much like the Chinese Hungry Ghost Festival. The blessings of your deceased ancestors, both maternal as well as paternal, are a major reason why you do or do not succeed in this life. For me the main reason why Malaysian and Singaporean Chinese community are successful in material wealth is just simply because they are strictly observing their ancestral ritual both monthly and yearly. Just by following elaborate ancestral rituals and dharma as thought by our Siddhas (the great South Indian Mystic Scientist) monthly and yearly we can attain both material and spiritual success in life easily.~ Vijayakumar Allagappan

A Special Time for the Ancestors

The Siddhas says, important rites for the ancestors should be performed through out the year. These should occur on the anniversary of the day of death, during new moon (Amavasai), period of mahalaya paksha and other special days for tarpanam ritual (96 days).

Mahalaya paksha is considered the most auspicious time for ancestors’ ritual. Our ancient Siddhas understood that honoring ancestors through tarpanam ritual keeps us living with good health, wealth, prosperity and enlightenment.

Offerings made during mahalaya paksha are said to reach the ancestors directly due to a special boon granted to humanity by Lord Yama, the cosmic purveyor of death. The origin of mahalaya paksha can traced back to the story of Karna, the renowned hero of the Mahabharata who, when he ascended to the celestial world after death, was rewarded with gold and silver for his many charitable deeds performed on earth, but was not offered food. Much to his embarrassment, he was made to understand that, while on Earth, he had not performed any offerings of food to anyone. Dismayed by this revelation, he prayed to Lord Yama that he might return to Earth to recompense for this neglect.

Lord Yama did indeed allow him to return to Earth, but only for fourteen days. During that short period, which has come to be known as mahalaya paksha, Karna nourished the brahmins and the poor with a great abundance of food. As a result of this penance, Lord Yama granted certain boons to all humanity. By Yama’s decree, all souls who encountered a premature or unnatural death would benefit from all mahalaya paksha rites. 

HALLOWEEN NIGHT FESTIVAL MAHALAYA PAKSHA OFFERING UNGRY GHOST FESTIVAL

To attain incredible blessings you can perform Tarpanam (offerings) in Sivan temples or at home by yourself during any of these fourteen days, depending on the area that you perceive is the weakest for you. For instance, if your finances are not in good shape, then performing Tarpanam on the first day of the Mahalaya Fortnight will bring you special blessings. For the best results, you could perform Tarpan on all the 14 days, to ensure that you get a facelift to all the aspects of your life! You can also throughout the 14 days of the Mahalaya Paksha, give food, clothes, shoes, sandals and to the poor and the disadvantaged.  Fasting during the new moon day also will alert your consciousness to be in communion with their spirits.

For peaceful and successful life your departed ancestors must be worshipped and remembered by performing Pitru Puja or honouring of the past souls during the time of Pitru paksha (much like the Chinese Hungry Ghost Festival and American Halloween Festival)
