There is a gift-giving time from the ancestors to their descendants living on this earth plane. The ancestors who passed from the earth and living in another plane are invoked to give abundant blessings. During this period the dimensions between the spiritual and material world begin to merge.
This 2-week period (24 September - 8 October) is very critical for you, for everyone. Even the enlightened yogis and rishis wait for this time, which comes only once a year, to get blessings from their own ancestors.
It is critical to perform Shradh (Ancestral Offerings) during Mahalaya Paksha as it can dissolve two types of ancestral karma to help you change your destiny. The first type is the karma that blocks the liberation of your ancestors’ souls, and the second type is the karma that prevents you from receiving the blessings of your ancestors. It is believed that dissolving this karma can help change all aspects of your present life, including your health, finances, career and relationships.
Book your Spiritual Ancestral Meditations on Mahalaya Amavasya. These meditations have helped many people resolve every kind of problem, and it is considered the greatest act you can do to help liberate your ancestors and help free your children from problems created by negative ancestral influences. Book your Spiritual Ancestral Meditations to help resolve your bad ancestral karma and help you gain their blessings throughout the year.
Reading Gokarna Bhagvata Saptaha (sacred Vedic text) on New Moon days can liberate a soul which has committed the worst sins.
