The Importance of Sponsoring Yagyas for the Ancestors During Mahalaya Paksha
The dark fortnight of Asweja, known as the Mahalaya Paksha, starts on September 23rd this year. This two-week period is dedicated to sacred offerings to the dead ancestors’ souls.
The Vedic tradition points to two spiritual reasons for everyday problems: the planets; and the departed spirits of our ancestors. It is believed that dead ancestors can help solve your issues related to financial matters, relationships, health and other such matters if you can communicate and reconnect with them.
Pitru Paksha Yagyas are designed to appease the souls of departed ancestors. These souls are subtle bodies which exist in a particular region of Bhuvalok (one of the seven ‘lokas’ or worlds). These Vedic rituals help liberate departed ancestors subtle bodies to the next higher sub-plane within Bhuvalok from the sub-plane they are stuck in currently. However, such rituals can at the most liberate the departed ancestors’ subtle bodies to the next higher sub-plane within Bhuvalok itself but rituals cannot liberate the subtle bodies from Bhuvalok to the next higher plane, that is, ‘Swargalok’ or heaven. To be liberated to higher . .
This year, the yagyas will be held at the Vedic Yagya Center for two weeks starting on September 23rd. Individual or Family Sponsorship is $351.00 for this whole event. Sponsor now.
