    • Naveen Sanagala says:

      There is a Shunya Tithi on October 2, 2012. It is observed as Bharani Shraddh but not as Chaturthi Shraddh. Chaturthi Shraddh is on October 4, 2012. As Mahalaya Paksha begins on the day where Purnima also coincides with Pratipada day, it would happen.. Though, it is very rare…

  78. C.Ramasundaram says:

    Please let me know whether we will get Purohits/Pandits/Vadhyars (TAMIL) to perform the Mahalaya Paksha 2012 Amavasya Pitru Sharaddh at NASIK TRIMBAKESHWAR. If so pl give me contact numbers and addresses.
