hi sir,Dear Sir,
My mother passed away at chengalpet on 21/June/2017 at 9.35 pm. please tell me the tithi date. Actually this is first tithi, will i give at Rameswaram. Please suggest me regarding this.
you must take only ashtami that is vaikaasi month sukla paksha astami thithi. which falls on 22-05-2018 this year. you must do sraththam for your father only on 22-05-2018. besides this you must do mahalaya sratham on one day from28th september to 7th october 2018. you must obey only to the rules written in vaidhnatha dikshathiiyam, hemathri book, nirnaya sindhu, dharma sindhu . so you have to do full fledged shradha on sratham day. only olden days grantha libi books written by experts must be followed. gaya sratham is a differnt one. althoughnyou have done you must do every year on sratham day full fledged sratham.Hi all
I am new here and in some doubt about shradh date of my father in this pitra paksha.
My father died on 01/06/2017 at about 11:00 A.M. in the morning. The tithi prevalant was saptami till 06:20 AM and at time of death it was ashtami. Its said that tithi at sunrise is the prevalent tithi during the whole day. But in drikpanchang site when I searched for the shraddha tithi calculator it showed ashtami and hence 2 Oct 2018 is the date for shradh.
So should I take saptami tithi or ashtami tithi at the time of death.
Please clear my doubts.
Lastly we are not looking for a full fledged shraadh as my uncle said that he had done his annual shraadh at gaya and hence we don't need to do anything but we want to do something. So is it Ok if we do shraadh may be a simple one on that day. I don't want to mess up the ritual if annual shraadh is done and are we allowed to do if annual shraadh is done.
