Tarpan : offering of water to the deceased

Tarpan literally means offering of water to the deceased. It is customary to add milk, oats,rice,sesame seeds, sandalwood and flowers when offering tarpan. The mixture is offered in a small stream made with the use of kusha and offered while chanting mantras. When this offering is made with devotion, gratitude, goodwill, love and good wishes, it immediately ensures contentment for the deceased. This offering is made on the death anniversary of the deceased. If one does not know the date of the death, then the ceremony can be performed during the dark fortnight of Ashvin.
In the Manusmriti Tarpan has been described as pitra-yagya - a yagya dedicated to the memory of forefathers.It is believed that it gives contentment to the deceased, and promotes comfort and happiness for successors. The ceremony is meant to remember the deceased, offer reverence and appease the hunger for remembrance. Forefathers look forward to this by their successors.

Among shraddh ceremonies, six kinds of tarpan a…

Shraddh - For Missing Persons

If a person has gone missing what to do about his last rites and shraddh?

Hindu Scriptures (Shastras) order that in case of a missing person his return should be awaited for 12 years. This ruling is in case the of the natural calamities. After 12 years the last rites may be performed using a mud lump to represent the missing person. After one year from that point shraddha may be regularly performed.

Pitra Paksha (Shraddh-Tarpan): Do and Don't

Pitra Paksha (Shraddh-Tarpan): Do and Don't
1. Krishna Paksha is better than Shukla Paksha for Tarpan (offering of water) and Shraddha.

2. After Noon time is better than before Noon for Tarpan and Shraddha.

3. Must Invite and offer food to Brahmin.

4. SILVER Patra (utensil) is best for offering food, Tarpan and Pind-daan. (ManuSmriti 3/202)

5. Do not perform Chaturdashi Shraddha. By offering food and water to your ancestors on this 14th day of Ashwin Krishna Paksha (Pitra-Paksha), you may unwantedly be put into a war or quarrel. Young people in your house may start dying in their early age. Perform only when some has died in War/accident (Akal Mrityu).

You can perform Chaturadashi’s shraddha on next day (Amavasya).

6. No Shraddha has been prescribed for abortive child.

Why we offer grass (durva) to Lord Ganesha?

Why we offer grass (durva) to Lord Ganesha? At one time a ruthless demon named Anlasur created havoc around the world. Even the gods in heaven were not spared. He would swallow saints, sages and innocent people alive. There were terror all around. The chief of gods, Indra, tried to control Anlasur several times by engaging him in battle. However, there was no respite. Anlasur was beyond Indra’s control.

Panic stricken by Anlasur’s terror, all the gods went to Lord Shankar for help. He revealed that only Sri Ganesha could help them. Sri Ganesh was pot-bellied and could swallow Anlasur. There was enough space in his belly to accommodate the demon.

The gods offered prayers and pleased Sri Ganesh, who agreed to help them. He chased Anlasur, caught and swallowed him whole. But this created a great burning sensation in Sri Ganesh’s stomach. Many remedies were tried. None worked. Sri Ganesh was in great agony. When sage Kashyap heard of Sri Ganesh’s plight, he went to Mt Kailash, collected …

Why prayers are first offered to Lord Sri Ganesh

|| Om Sri Ganeshaya Namah ||

Sri Ganesh is the most revered of Hindu gods. Before any special ceremony or auspicious occasion prayers are first offered to Sri Ganesh.

He is Vighanharta and master of Riddhi-Siddhi. This simply means that he removes all obstacles confronting devotees. A prayer, an offering or penance made for him ensures success. It brings wealth and prosperity.

He is easily pleased. Before any ceremony or special occasion all one needs to do is chant ‘Sri Ganeshaya Namah’.

Sri Ganesh is the God of learning and knowledge. Through devotion to Him one learns to be responsible, to differentiate between good and bad and develop farsightedness. He teaches discipline. It is for this reason that offerings are first made to Sri Ganesh before a ceremony or auspicious occasion.

In Shivpuran, a story narrates that once all the gods went to Lord Shankar to inquire as to who should be the chief amongst them. In response, Lord Shankar proposed that whoever went around the world thrice and…

Why is pran pratishtha important before an idol becomes a deity?

Pran Pratishtha means infusing life into an idol. Without breath (pran) a human body is nothing. Similarly, an idol is a piece of metal, wood or stone until life is infused into it. This is done through a detailed ceremony by chanting mantras requesting God to reside in the idol. Once this is done the idol becomes deity. Thereafter, it must be bathed, clothed, given ornaments, food, incense sticks and articles of prayer, followed by arti in the morning and evening.

Ganpati Pran Pratishtha Mantra
The Pran Prathista mantra in Sanskrit to be invoked is found in the Rig Veda and is part of Ganesh Suktha.

KARMAS AND BIRTH : a few from Garuda Purana

The Brahmin who does not recite the Gayatri, who does not meditate at twilight, who is inwardly wicked while outwardly pious, becomes a crane.

The Brahmin who officiates for one who is unfit to perform sacrifices becomes a village-dog, and by too many sacrifices becomes an ass; by eating without the thought of God he becomes a crow.

Who deceives a friend becomes a mountain-vulture; who cheats in selling becomes an owl; who speaks ill of caste and religious order is born a pigeon in a wood.

The twice-born who does not impart learning to the deserving becomes a bull; the pupil who does not serve his teacher becomes an animal, an ass or a crow.

Who strikes a cow or a Brahmin with his foot is born lame and deformed; who speaks lies becomes a stammerer; who listens to lies becomes deaf.

Who covets his teacher’s wife becomes a chameleon; who tries to go with the king’s wife becomes badly corrupt in character; who goes with his friend’s wife becomes a donkey.

Who steals food becomes a rat; who st…

How one becomes a Ghost – Garuda Purana

Those who meet with foul death such as committing suicide by hanging from a tree, by poison or weapon, those who die of cholera, those who are burnt to death alive, those who die of foul and loathsome diseases or at the hands of robbers.

Those who are not cremated duly after death, those who do not follow sacred rites and conduct, those who do not perform Vrsotsarga and monthly pinda rites, those who allow sudras to bring sacrificial grass, twigs and other articles of homa.

Those who fall from mountains and die, those who die when walls collapse.

Those who are defiled by women in their menses, those who die in the firmament and those who are forgetful of Lord Vishnu, those who continue to associate with persons defiled due to births or death, those who die of dog-biting or meet with death in a foul manner, become ghosts and roam over the earth.

One who discards one's mother, sister, wife, daughter or daughter-in-law without seeing any fault in them, obtains ghosthood surely.

One who…
