On this special Hariyali Amavasya, offer Maheshwara Puja for an ever-green and eternally auspicious life for ancestors and living members


On the occasion of HARIYALI AMAVASYA (the onset of Shravan month in the vedic calendar), very special pujas are offered to Lord Shiva and Pinda Tarpan is offered for ancestors and living members!

HARIYALI AMAVASYA on August 8th 2021 is a very rare and auspicious alignment of three happenings – The star Pushya Nakshatra, lunar occurence of Amavasya (the New moon) and Vara (day of week) of Bhanuvasara (Sunday) are happening on the same day.

This day of such occurence is considered a day of Maha-Yogam, a rare and auspicious alignment that happens only once in 100 years – a once in a lifetime of an opportunity for most of us on planet earth today.
An Avatar accepting the Maheshwara Puja on such an alignment is the rarest of rare opportunities for devotees.

The most important aspect of this Yogam is that it will remove karma doshas (ill effects from karmic baggage).
For many who passed away due to the Corona pandemic, if anyone did not offer Karma Kanda (last rites for the departed soul), this is the best opportunity. Any spiritual activity done during this time will give a thousand-fold more benefits.

Annadaan (serving food) on this day is considered a ‘Mahaadaana’ – a great charity – that results in multiple benefits. It will remove karmic baggage and remove the Pitru Dosha (deleting the impact of wrong deeds of ancestors).

The Manu Smriti says:

आषाढीमवधिं कृत्वा पञ्चमं पक्षमाश्रिताः।
काङ्क्षितानि पितरः क्लिष्टा अन्नमप्यन्वहं जलम्।।

āṣāḍhīmavadhiṃ kṛtvā pañcamaṃ pakṣamāśritāḥ।
kāṅkṣitāni pitaraḥ kliṣṭā annamapyanvahaṃ jalam।।

The departed souls wait eagerly for completion through food and water during the Mahalaya Paksha, which is the fortnight of departed souls.

The Somashambhu Paddhati, Shrāddha Vidhi, Shloka 3 says:

लिङ्गिनो ब्राह्मणाद्याश्च श्राद्धीयाः शिवदीक्षिताः ।

liṅgino brāhmaṇādyāśca
śrāddhīyāḥ śivadīkṣitāḥ ।

The Sannyasis and Brahmanas who have been initiated into the Shiva Deeksha are eligible to be appointed as the representatives of Pitrus in the Shrāddha.
