mahaaLaya shraaddhaM

Significance of mahaaLaya shraaddhaM (mahaaLayaM)

mahaaLaya shraaddha should be performed by those who are obliged to perform amaavaasyaa tarpaNa. mahaaLaya paksha is the krishNa paksha which precedes mahaaLaya amaavaasyaa and occurs during simha/kanyaa months (Tamil months of aavaNi/puraTTasi). mahaaLaya shraaddha (also called mahaaLaya tarpaNaM or simply mahaaLayaM) is performed on a suitable day during this paksha. ashhTami tithi which occurs during this paksha is known as madhyaashhTami. bharaNi nakshtra which falls during this paksha is known as mahaa bharani. Most people prefer one of these two days for performing mahaaLayaM. Several people prefer the parent's tithi day.

mahaaLayaM is performed somewhat similar to amaavasyaa darsha shraaddha with the addition of a third set of bhugnaa(s) between the pitR^i and maatR^i vargaa(s) for invoking sarve kaaruNya pitR^ii(s). The concept of pitR^i loka is quite interesting and fascinating. There is a lot of oral tradition passed on by our elders and there is privately circulated written literature on this subject based on what one would consider to be authentic information. This will be a future topic for a separate webpage. It is believed that during the mahaaLaya paksha all our pitR^ii(s), whichever plane of spiritual progress they may have reached, come over to receive our oblation during mahaaLayaM and it is for these pitR^ii(s) that the third set of bhugnaa(s) are placed.

If you are performing mahaaLayaM for the first time, please seek the guidance of someone who knows the procedure and then follow the routine herein.

      img saying the above mantra, sprinkle tila (sesame seeds) over the place where the darbhaas will be placed for tarpaNam.

      arrange two rows of straight darbhaas in East-West orientation for the base, as shown in the sketch. Of the six bhugnaas, take three and lay one bhugnaa on the left (assuming you are facing South) one on the right a short distance away, and one in the centre with the bhugna tips facing South. The bhugna on the left is for pitR^i varga, that on the right (Western side) is for maatR^i varga, and the center one is for sarvekaaruNya pitR^ii.

      Put aside the other three bhugnaas for now.
