What is Amavasya (New Moon)?

Final day of waning lunar phase is “New Moon”, where moon vanishes completely after Krishna Paksha (Waning period). Known as ‘Amavasai’ in Tamil, this period is apt for making ritual offerings (Tarpanam) to your ancestors, who have the power to elevate your status and bless you for success in life.

Connecting with Ancestors

Impact of the ancestors on you is so powerful as most of our thoughts come from our ancestors, which has indirect effect on our destiny. So performing Tarpanam ritual can shower a lot of benefits, and even make miracles happen.

Importance of Amavasya (New Moon) Tarpanam

New Moon is a powerful time to create a bonding with your maternal and paternal ancestors. Performing Tarpanam ritual on this day can break the energy blocks, negative vibration and opens a direct path to connect with the ancestors. So invoke the blessings of your ancestors in your life for a healthy, wealth and negativity-free life.

Soul Genetics

The influence of maternal and paternal ancestors is highly intense and that is a vital factor for success and failure in the life. As human beings, bulks of our thoughts are from our ancestor’s thoughts, as we not only inherit biological genes, but also inherit the soul energy of them. This is called Soul Genetics, a term coined by Dr. Pillai. This means that you are not independent; your ancestors control your destiny too. To gain control of your destiny you need to establish a reciprocal relationship with your ancestors.

So, perform Tarpanam on Amavasya (New Moon) day to receive their blessings for you to lead a trouble-free positive life.
