2. Mahalaya (Pithru) Paksham — From – 25.09.2018 Tuesday (Krishna Paksha Prathamai) Untill – 08.10.2018 Monday (Amavasai)
These sixteen days when king Karna was on Earth were called the pitru paksha. These days are considered very inauspicious and even today no new activity or a good task is done on these days.
The Hindus offer prayers and food to the ancestors in this time. This ensures that the pitru dosha is done away with. It also ensures that the entire family is blessed. The pitru paksha is followed only by the male members of the family.
