Mahalaya Amavasya 2022:
Sarva Pitru Amavasya 2022 Shradh Pind daan Tarpan:According to the Hindu calendar, the Pitru Paksha ends on all Pitru Amavasyas of the month of Ashwin. It is also known as Mahalaya Amavasya and Pitru Moksha Amavasya (Mahalay Amavasya 2022). This year Pitru Paksha is starting from 10th September. It will end on 25 September. On this day the ancestors return. Hence this last day in Pitru Paksha is very important. Those who have not performed Shradh for their ancestors, they should perform this Shradh on the new moon day. This is your last chance to donate. Also, avoid making some mistakes on this day, otherwise you may suffer a big loss.

Avoid these mistakes on Sarvapitri Amavasya
On the new moon day, those ancestors whose date of death is not known or who died on the new moon day should be performed. Otherwise it is advisable to perform Shradh on the day of death itself.
Hair and nails should not be cut during Pitru Paksha. But don’t make this mistake on the new moon day. Otherwise you will have to face dire consequences. Cut nails and hair only after the new moon is over.
Avoid non-vegetarian food on the new moon day. Failure to do so may anger the parents.
Do not send any poor or animal empty stomach on the day of Amavasya. According to your ability, give dakshina to the monk who comes to the door. It is best to give maida, rice or sesame seeds.
Don’t insult the poor. Do not harm any innocent animal. Instead, help people. Otherwise the parents may get angry.
Do not consume garlic, onion, lentils, flaxseed and datura on the new moon day. Only sattvik food should be taken on this day.
