Mahalaya Paksha: Critical Fortnight for
Rituals for Your Ancestors

15 Days to Receive Blessings and Gifts from Your Ancestors

Vedic Technology to Create Life Miracles by Dissolving Ancestral Karma and Receiving Ancestral Blessings
Sept. 16 to Sept. 30, 2016 (IST)

“There is a gift-giving time from the ancestors to their descendants living on this earth plane. The ancestors who passed from the earth and living in another plane are invoked to give abundant blessings. This 2-week period is very critical for you, for everyone. Even the enlightened yogis and rishis wait for this time, which comes only once a year, to get blessings from their own ancestors.”

Dr. Pillai

Powertime for Your Ancestors to Bless You and Change Your Destiny

Mahalaya Paksha (15 days of Ancestral Rituals) is the most important time of the year for you to perform Tarpanam for your ancestors. Every year during Mahalaya period, the spirits of your ancestors come to the Earth plane to receive your offerings through the Tarpanam ritual and bestow their blessings on you, which has the power to change your destiny.

This fortnight window is a time you can seek help from your ancestors to dissolve the karma affecting all aspects of your present life, including your health, wealth, career and relationships.

Miracles Happen after Tarpanam Rituals

Dr. Pillai says that even enlightened yogis and rishis wait for the Mahalaya time each year to obtain blessings from their own ancestors. It is critical to perform Tarpanam rituals during Mahalaya Paksha as it dissolves two types of ancestral karma to help you witness miracles in your life. The first type is the karma that blocks the liberation of your ancestors’ souls and the second is the karma that blocks you from receiving the blessings of your ancestors.

Tarpanam and Clothes Donation is Essential on Mahalaya Days

“This is a very special 15 days. It’s important that you have the specialist priest to do this ceremony for you, (for) your ancestors on the father’s side and on the mother’s side. So make use of that and I have AstroVed to find the right people and right places where these offerings can be done by qualified priests. Take advantage of this 15-day Mahalaya period to overcome genetic ailments and to solve your life problems.”

Dr. Pillai

Performing Tarpanam for your departed lineage is an act of great compassion and is the most effective way of honoring these souls. During Tarpanam, special offerings are made for their contribution to your life, and prayers are made for peace for their souls. Appease your ancestors during Mahalaya Paksha and receive their blessings, which are critical for a problem-free life.

Dhana, unconditional service to humanity, is one of the virtues noted in the scriptures that helps to remove karma and cleanse the subtle bodies. Clothing donations to the poor and needy are an essential part of Mahalaya rituals.

Astrology Significance of Mahalaya Paksha 2016

This year, on September 16, 2016, the Sun will be entering the zodiac sign Virgo marking the beginning of the Tamil month Purattasi. The first day of every Tamil month is favourable to seek the blessings of your ancestors by performing Tarpanam and this day is extra special because it falls on the day before the commencement of Mahalaya Paksha. Mahalaya Paksha starts on Saturday, September 17, 2016 and ends on Friday, September 30, 2016 (IST). Mahalaya begins with the Moon in the transcendental sign of Pisces, the 12th house of the natural Zodiac. This house signifies salvation and liberation (or moksha).

This Mahalaya begins with positive energies from almost all the planets – Sun, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn and Mars. On this day, the Moon will be in the star of Uttarabhadra, which is ruled by Saturn, the planet of judgment and spirituality. The star lord Saturn in Scorpio will share the sign with Mars, in the 9th House from the Moon, making the day more sacred to liberate and receive blessings from our ancestors. This is also the right day to forgive and forget old grudges from the deceased, as the star lord Saturn will be in the sign Scorpio, the 8th House from natural zodiac, which represents deep-rooted or hidden emotions.

Furthermore, the planet Ketu is placed in the sign Aquarius, ruled by Saturn, the star lord of the day, and it is situated in the 12th house from Moon Sign, which again indicates liberation. So this Mahalaya starts with positive energy from the planets and makes this important day more powerful for those who want to pacify their ancestors’ souls and relieve them from Karmic Debts.

Mahalaya ends with the Moon in Virgo. The Moon will be with Jupiter and the Sun. Not only your ancestors, but also the souls of your friends, all known people in your life and even pets, can be liberated by doing Tarpanam during Mahalaya Paksha (15 days). Praying to your ancestors in the form of Tarpanam rituals, as well as feeding crows, cows and small insects are considered very auspicious to receive blessings from your ancestors.
