Sarva Pitru Amavasya 2026

Sarva Pitru Amavasya 2026 Date, Mahalaya 2026 Date

Amavasya Tithi Shraddha or Sarva Pitru Amavasya Shradha also known as Sarva Pitru Moksha Amavasya is done for those family members who died on Amavasya Tithi, Purnima Tithi and Chaturdashi Tithi. If someone is not able to perform Shraddha on all Tithis for any of the family member died, then single Shraddha for all died family members can be done on this day. Doing Sankalp and offering Shraadh food to Brahmin for the Pitr's or ancestors that have passed is sufficient to please all died members in the family. Also, Sarva Pitru Amavasya or Mahalaya day can also be used to do Shraddha for any of the died family member whose death anniversary or the tithi of death is not known or forgotten and this is the reason Amavasya Shraddha is also known as Sarvapitra Moksha Amavasya. 

The term ‘Sarva Pitru’ means ‘all forefathers or ancestors’ and the tithi of Sarva Pitru Amavasya is dedicated to all ancestors whose death tithi may have been forgotten or unknown. Sarva Pitru Amavasya is observed in Bhadrapada month as per South Indian Hindu calendar and during Ashwin month in North Indian Hindu calendar.
