Pitru Tithi dates 2018 | Shraddh Tithi | Abdhikam | Thaddinam

The Shraddh is generally performed on the Tithi on which the ancestors had passed away. Generally the Shraddh is performed eldest descendant of the family at the designated holy places by wearing a Dhoti (White) and wears a ring of Kusha grass and he should have gone through the sacred-thread ceremony and the thread’s position gets changed during the ritual.

After the Tarpana (oblations given to Ancestors and Gods), balls of cooked-rice, barley and ghee been served to the Crows which are considered to be sacred and if the Crow eats the offering which is called Pinda-daan, it’s believed the soul of the ancestor is departed and attained salvation.

After the Pinda-daan is offered, donations been given to the Brahmins, seek their blessings and are fed with food and the whole family eats the food as Prasad and the process gets completed.

In every year, there will be huge ambiguity in deciding particular Pitru Tithis or the days to perform Pitru rituals. To clear the ambiguity, Hindupad is publishing the ‘Sandigdha Pitru Tithi’ dates for each year..

Here is the list of tithis for Shraddh rituals for those who departed on the same tithi in the past…
