Pitra Paksh (also known as Shraddha) is a time of prayer dedicated to remembering, giving thanks, and honouring our ancestors who have passed away. This beautiful ritual involves a ceremonial offering of food, flowers and incense. Traditionally, special prayers are done for two weeks to ensure deceased ancestors reach heaven and attain peace and happiness in the afterlife. Here are Shree Peetha Nilaya, we do a short ceremony to commemorate this ritual.

OFFERING PRAYERS TO THE ANCESTORS
We are offering two different ways to take part in this beautiful ritual: doing it yourself or having us do it for you.
Offer the prayers yourself at Shree Peetha Nilaya
If you would like to perform this ritual yourself, please come to The Ashram. The group will be lead by a SPN Swami who will share more about the ritual and instruct you throughout the entire ceremony. All the offerings will be provided for you.
Allow us to offer your prayer for you
If you are unable to come to The Ashram in-person, a SPN pujari will be happy to conduct the ritual on your behalf. Everything for the ritual will be taken care of by us.
