ShradhSanskar should be done because it is the day when our ancestors come to visit us. This ceremony consists of holy water offering, havan, PindDaan along with Brahmin Bhoj. This is done for the first time 11 days after the mourning period starts. Shradhs are regularly performed every month
(MaasikShradh) after the death of the loved one. At the end of first year, a VarshikShradh is held after which Shradh is performed on a yearly basis. Performing ShradhSanskarfulfils and satisfies our loved ones. It is said that the ceremony also helps them go along with their journey, detaching themselves from the material world.
