भाद्रपदमासस्य अमावास्या एव “महालया अमावास्या” इति उच्यते । समग्रं पक्षं “पितृपक्षः” इति वदन्ति । अस्मिन् पक्षे दिवं गतेभ्यः पूर्वजेभ्यः कृतज्ञातासमर्पणं कुर्वन्ति । श्राद्धादिकर्म आचरन्ति । एषा अमावास्या “सर्वपित्रामावास्या” इत्यपि उच्यते ।
As per the beliefs of Hindus religion its a ritual of paying debt to ancestors that brings salvation, it is also believed that no work can be successfully performed without blessings of ancestors and offering Pind Daan invokes blessings of the dead ancestors.
With the ritual offered to pay tribute to the departed ancestors also called ‘Pitar’ as per our ancient texts, the sacred and correct ending of this ritual promote the soul to get Moksha (salvation) very easily. This is the Hindu belief that after the death, soul of human being still remain in this materialistic world. Just because of the loss of body (due to death) someone cannot detach himself / herself from this world. The pull of Love, kindness, affection for his / her family, friends, relatives etc. and the affinity for the materialistic world prevent him to go for the extreme and ultimate departure. As a result, being a bodiless state that man (without body) gets pain. He wants to do many things but cannot. They cannot or even do not want to make themselves free from this materialistic world. ‘PINDA DAAN’ according to Hindu Belief Gives them an ultimate relief and paves the way for their departure to the ultimate world of Peace. Pind daan is considered to be a mandatory rite believed to bring salvation to the departed souls. An obligation of all Devout Hindus.
