Ekadashi Shradh 2026 Date

Ekadashi Shradh 2026 Date, Gyaras Shraddha

This day is set aside for performing shradh ceremonies for ancestors who died on any month's Ekadashi tithi. The Pitrus (ancestors) are said to visit their descendants on Earth during the Pitru Paksha era to accept the offerings they make. In truth, the occupants of the ancestral Worlds can only exist because of the tarpan and shradh provided by their earthly descendants. As a consequence, shradh and tarpan can help fulfill the deceased's hunger while also receiving their blessings for the well-being of the family.


The auspicious muhurats are Kutup Muhurat and Rohina Muhurat, and they last till the Aparahna Kala is over. According to the Marandeya Purana scripture, Shraddha's ancestors would provide health, riches, and happiness, and the one who fulfills all rites is said to have attained salvation. It is important that the Shraddha process concludes in such a way that lunch occurs at Aparhana Time. After we do the Shraddha and appease our ancestors by presenting Tarpans, they would be delighted and gift us with wealth and prosperity. Tarpan (तर्पण) might be done at the conclusion of the Shraddha.
