Shradhs or Pitrapaksh is starting from 10th September.
These are till amavasya /new moon so, for full 15 days there will be rituals of prayers and donations for the family members who have left their physical bodies and gone to the other side.
I have heard and witnessed a lot in this but still not able to understand few things, which I leave it as it is because I feel human mind is limited and Existence is infinite. So, human mind is not capable to understand beyond a point, and it is better if all is not known. Unknown is important and surrendering to the divine is best.
I have heard from many people that when the time to go comes, then many people see their loved ones who have already left the planet. They come to receive them.
Medical world call these last moments as brain capturing life moments, but many theories say that they come to receive their loved one with care same as when we take birth then are our own people welcome us. Same ways when we leave and go to the other side, then our loved ones welcome us to the other side.
No one will ever know exactly what is the truth, but this has been experienced and witnessed by end number of people.
How to recognize the Self Guidance
Second, it is said that many times our own loved ones who leave the body and go to the other side guides us after leaving this planet. They become our guiding spirits and again many people have witnessed this.
I can’t say whether they become our guiding spirits or not but one thing surely, I can say that there is some guiding energy which is always with us. It guides us every time, only we need to get tuned inside ourselves to connect with it and whenever we avoid that guidance then there is a fall.
Always two different guidance comes. One from our guiding spirits, which is from the higher source and other from our limiting beliefs, which we have taken from outside.
We need to get tuned to our highest self, our abundant self to recognize the guidance.
One thing I can say that many times when we ask something from them with full faith then mostly, I have seen it getting fulfilled. Maybe this is the reason that our every anushthan includes pitra awahan in pitrapaksh . They are called with full honour.
These special days for pitrapaksh is not only in Hinduism but in every religion. There are some special days in which they do rituals for the family members who have left for the other side.
Lot of theories and experiences are there. So much is mentioned this in ancient scriptures. Shradhs or pitrapaksh are given very high and important place in all the religious books.
There are also some fear based messages which are floating. Fear based messages are coming from low vibrations of outside world and they are mostly to control masses.
Fear and love are opposite energies. Seed of fear will only give fruit of fear. These messages act as a barrier in our meeting with our source energy and getting into our most empowered self.
God only loves. He only helps.
When we leave physical bodies then we are energy who are one with the Supreme energy. Light is one with Supreme light. We are one with the whole Existence.
The highest frequency is of Love. Everywhere it is mentioned that God is love. Everyone who experienced Godliness has mentioned God is Love.
I am not talking about attachment. There is a huge difference between love and attachment.
Love is highest frequency and when physical body is dropped then mental system, digestive system, and other systems are dropped. Hormones are dropped. What is left. Only the highest frequency is left and that is Sheer Love. Only Godliness is left.
This is something to experience in ourselves. No words can exactly explain this frequency.
So, ones who have dropped the physical bodies and have become one with the Supreme light are also God now. May be this is the reason that when we ask something from them then it is fulfilled.
With faith we can bow down in front of them. Donate something to needy at least it will fill someone’s hunger. Clothes to someone who needs them the most. Footwears to someone who will get protection from heat and rain.
This satisfaction that we could be of some help to other gives lot of fulfilment, peace, and joy. Being Useful in the Universe gives Universal protection. So let us drop all the calculations and donate to those who needs it and be happy in seeing the twinkle in their eyes.
It is believed that reciting Bhagwat Geeta for pitrapaksh gives peace to their souls. I feel that they are very much in peace and reciting Geeta gives peace to our soul because we come to know that there is no end to the soul.
Soul is an energy which can never be destroyed and is always well placed and well-nourished in Supreme soul as baby in mother’s womb. So, all the suffering is created by unawareness and not accepting some Universal laws or knowing but running in the race which goes nowhere. I am not saying to leave all and go on a mountain top. I am just saying that doing all and living full life but in awareness of the highest truth.
Once we accept some Universal laws and be in that energy then our pressure is taken. We feel very protected and worthy. Life becomes easy and there is no desire to enter in unnecessary drama and if in case we are into that then we get the patience to witness and let it pass.
At the end life is simple only our human mind has several twists and turns. So let us spend these days in the high awareness of Truth.
