This Pitru Paksha Shradh 2023, remember the departed soul with a cause. On their Shradh Puja, donate food to the needy.

The full moon time of Bhadrapada and the Pratipada of Krishna Paksha of Ashwin month from Amavasya is called Pitru Paksha. In the year 2023, Pitru Paksha will commence from 29h September 2023 (Friday) till 14th October 2023 .

According to Brahmpurana, before worshiping the Gods, a man should worship his ancestors because it is believed that the Gods are pleased with that. For this reason, the elders are honored and posthumously worshiped in Indian society.

These offerings are in the form of Shradh which is to be performed on the tithi (date) of death, falling in Pitrupaksha and if the tithi is not known, then Ashwin Amavasya can be worshiped which is also called All Sovereign Amavasya. On Shradh we remember our ancestors by doing tarpan and offer food and dakshina to Brahmins or needy people.

Uday Foundation serve free, but wholesome, food to families of underprivileged patients in the Govt. Hospital and also for the children who come from a far-off places to the Delhi hospitals for often longer treatments. You can also join our team during food distribution drive.

What is the Significant of Pitru Paksha?


Pitru Paksha is a significant time period in Hinduism when ancestors are remembered and worshipped. It falls on the full moon day of the Bhadrapada month and continues until the Pratipada of Krishna Paksha of the Ashwin month, which is the first day of the waning phase of the moon, starting from Amavasya. Pitru Paksha is also known as Shradh Paksha and is a time when Hindus pay homage to their ancestors by performing rituals and offering prayers to them.

The belief behind Pitru Paksha is that ancestors remain in an intermediate state until they receive offerings from their descendants. Therefore, it is important to honor and remember them by offering food, water, and other offerings. The period is considered an auspicious time to express gratitude towards ancestors for their blessings and seek their blessings for a better future.

During Pitru Paksha, people perform tarpan, which is a ritual offering of water to their ancestors. This is done by offering water mixed with black sesame seeds, flowers, and other offerings to the ancestors while reciting mantras. In addition to tarpan, people also offer food and dakshina to Brahmins or needy people. The food is usually prepared with great care and offered to the ancestors with the belief that they will receive the essence of the food.

The Pitru Paksha period is considered an important time for spiritual growth and self-reflection. It is a time for people to meditate and seek blessings from their ancestors to overcome obstacles and challenges in life. It is believed that performing Pitru Paksha rituals with devotion and sincerity can bring good fortune and prosperity to the family.

Apart from performing the rituals, people also engage in acts of charity during Pitru Paksha. One such organization that works towards serving the underprivileged is the Uday Foundation. The Uday Foundation serves free, wholesome food to families of underprivileged patients in government hospitals and also for children who come from far-off places to Delhi hospitals for long treatments. People can also join the Uday Foundation team during their food distribution drives and contribute to the cause of serving the needy.

In conclusion, Pitru Paksha is a significant time period in Hinduism when ancestors are remembered and worshipped. It is a time for people to express gratitude towards their ancestors and seek their blessings for a better future. The period is considered auspicious for performing rituals and acts of charity, which can bring good fortune and prosperity to the family.

Story of Uday Foundation



Disturbed by son’s illness, Rahul Verma started Uday foundation in 2007

Rahul and Tulika Verma were hit with unfortunate news in 2006 — their son, Arjunuday, had been born with congenital defects and would probably require expensive medical treatment for his entire life. They could picture themselves spending most of their time in hospitals, either for consultations or surgeries.

A feeling of compassion for people suffering the same fate engulfed the couple, and they realised just how important it is for both parents and children, irrespective of background, to have access to quality healthcare.

Looking at the depression all around them, they decided to do something to honour their son, and that was how the Uday Foundation, for the healthcare of the disadvantaged sections of society, especially children, came about.
