When is Pitru Paksha 2021 –
Pitru Paksha starts from the full moon of Bhadrapada and continues till the new moon of Ashwin month. The Krishna Paksha of the month of Ashwin is called Pitru Paksha. Shradh is performed on Bhadrapada Purnima for those who died on any full moon of the year. In the scriptures, it is advised to do tarpan for those who renounce their bodies on the day of Bhadrapada Purnima, on Ashwin Amavasya. On the other hand, in any part of the year, on the date on which the ancestors of the house died, their Shradh should be performed on the same date of Pitru Paksha.

If you do not remember the date of Shradh, do this work (Pitru Paksha 2021 Shradh rules) – Even if you do not remember the date of Shradh of your ancestors, you can do tarpan. According to the scriptures, if the date of death of ancestors and ancestors is not known, tarpan can be done on Ashwin Amavasya 2021. That is why this new moon is called Sarvapitri Amavasya 2021. This is the last date of Shradh. If a family member has died prematurely, then their Shradh is performed on Chaturdashi Tithi. Similarly, father’s Shradh is believed to be performed on Ashtami and mother’s Shradh on Navami date.
