Rites and Rituals: Vedik prescription to keep the mutually beneficial interrelation of gods and humans going
Posted by Champaklal Dajibhai Mistry. Last updated on September 3, 2003.


Since brahmaa-dev created pitru-devo and mrutyu (death) at the beginning of this creation cycle of 4.32 billion years humans have performed vidhio which are rites, ritual and ceremonies to acknowledge our relationship with being called pitru...pitru means ancestors of a creation or family lineage... and humans also have been acknowledging the relationship they have with their pitruo with a variety of offering through various rites, rituals and ceremonies...

 In vedic lifestyle this relationship based on offerings of SRaaDH`DH to pitru-devo and pitruo starts with the sixteenth and last sanskaar (life term sacrament) of a life term which is called antyesti sanskaar meaning funeral ceremonies when one moves on to the next life term....performance of offering of SShraaDdh continues for seven generations in a family lineage.....shraadh will continue to be offered for the next 7 manvantra of this kalpa (creation cycle) which is for about 2.16 billion years......Please learn more about SShraaDdh  in other postings on the VED PAGE on this web site for........
