Mahalaya Shraaddha

Oct 14 - Oct 14, 2023

With the blessings of God and Gurus, we are organizing a Mahalaya Shraddha ceremony at Hariharananda Gurukulam.

Shraddha is an act of expressing deep respect and gratitude to our departed ancestors. It also aids the departed soul in its onward journey.

Shraddha performed on Mahalaya Amavasya invokes special blessings to all deceased. If performed in holy places like Shri Jagannatha Puri and in Sadhguru Peetha like Hariharananda Gurukulam (Shri Guru Govinda Go Peetha), it helps the departed soul move toward attaining liberation.

Both Kriyavans as well as non-Kriyavans can avail this opportunity. In case, one does not remember the names of the ancestors of the deceased near and dear ones, still you can do shraddha.

For details regarding Shraddha, you may please watch the video by Swami Atmavidyananda Giri:
