Re-Connect with Your Ancestors During Mahalaya Fortnight To Radically Transform Your Life

DateAugust 25, 2009

“If I have to recommend one solution for every one of our problems, be it financial, relationship or health, it is doing Tarpanam (offerings to the ancestors). Miracles do happen after the performance of the rituals.”
– Dattatreya Siva Baba.The Uniqueness of the 2 Weeks called as “Mahalaya”
The earth plane is not all that bad. It was designed as a laboratory for the evolution of the souls. Even great enlightened beings who turned their body into light visit the earth with their light body on a daily basis. All our ancestors come and stay on the earth plane for 15 days in a year. During these fifteen days they stay in your body, mind and soul and can change all three positively. Not even Gods can do what the ancestors can do for you. In fact, Gods ask you to go through your ancestors.

These fifteen days start from September 5th in India (and on the 4th in the U.S.), right after the full moon and ends on the Mahalaya New Moon day, September 18th. This two week period is the most important period to appreciate your departed ancestors.Why should I worry about my departed ancestors?
Spiritually speaking there are two reasons for all of our mundane problems. One caused by the planets, the other by departed spirits. We should constantly take care of them in order to have a peaceful life.

Just as there is biological lineage of transference of DNA along the family line, there is spirit lineage. It is as though there is a spirit DNA as well. Your departed ancestors can help solve your problems.

Our ancestors live in the world of the Pitra loka (ancestral world). 64 Generations of dead ancestors can help solve your money, relationship, health and other problems quite easily if one knows how to communicate and connect with them.

How to access my ancestor’s blessings
On the new moon day, the departed spirits come to the earth plane and stay with their biological relatives from sunrise to sunset. Fasting during the new moon day will alert your consciousness to be in communion with their spirits.

During these 15 days, our Ancestors want special food: a special offering comprised of black sesame seeds, holy water from rivers and oceans, tulsi leaves, sandalwood paste, sacred dharba grass and some coins. These offerings need to be given to them for all the 15 days conscientiously.

Ancestral offerings are acknowledged by all cultures – Egyptian, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Judeo-Christian, Aboriginal, African, etc. Astroved has become a brand name for Tarpanam rituals. We have specialists who can ensure that offerings do reach the spirits.

Even great Siddhas like Agastiya, Maha Rishis like Vasistha, Avatars like Krishna and Rama, when they lived on the earth plane appreciated their ancestors through rituals called Tarpan (Tarpanam in Sanksrit).

What awaits me during Mahalaya Fortnight?
The sacred “Maha Tarpanam” ritual will be performed in Kerala for each of the 15 days. Our ancestral specialist priests ensure that the ancestral souls are appeased and bless you.

Significance of the 15 day ritual:
The Maha Ancestral ritual spans for 15 days from the 1st Moon till the New Moon and each day is ruled by a specific phase of the Moon.

Moon Phase or Tithi Benefits of Specific Moon Phase Tarpans
1st Moon Bestows Wealth
2nd Moon Bestows Progeny
3rd Moon Bestows Business Prosperity
4th Moon Overpowering enemies
5th Moon Bestows All Prosperity
6th Moon Bestows Fame
7th Moon Bestows Divine Strength
8th Moon Bestows Intelligence
9th Moon Gains from Women
10th Moon Bestows Success in Undertakings
11th Moon Prosperity of Children and Intelligence to your Children
12th Moon For Progeny and Gains through Education
13th and 14th Moon Blessed with many Vehicles and Renders Peace and Longevity
New Moon If you miss any of the above days, New Moon is mandatory.
This is also an essential day for doing Tarpanam for those who died due to weapons or accidents. During this day, the known and unknown souls that have departed during the last 30 years are treated equal to God


Significance of Donating Food and Clothing:
The easiest way to access God’s grace is to feed a famished human being starving for food and donate clothes. Donating food is considered to be the greatest charity in all the charities.It is believed that the person who donates food would attain an elevated status. There is an interesting legend highlighting the importance of donating food. In the great epic Mahabaratha, Karna was a great philanthropist and he never said no to any one who approached him for help. He had donated huge wealth and had done all kinds of charity except for donating food. Once a soul reaches heaven, it is that the soul would not feel hungry.

However, when Karna’s soul after his death reached heaven, his soul was feeling hungry. He then realized that though he had done all kinds of charities, he did not do feeding or Annadhan. Hence feeding is the highest of all charities. Donating food on New Moon is considered to be important as this is considered to be a ritual on this day
