The Annual 15 Moons of 'Mahalaya': The Ancestors' Time
The earth plane was designed as a laboratory for the evolution of souls. Great enlightened beings who have turned their body into light visit the earth daily in their light form. All of our ancestors come and stay on the earth plane for 15 days in a year. During these fifteen days they stay in your body, mind and soul and can change all three positively. Not even Gods can do what the ancestors can do for you. In fact, Gods ask you to go through your ancestors for blessings.
These fifteen days start from September 13th night, right after the full moon and ends on the Mahalaya New Moon Day night, September 27th. This two week period is the most important period to appreciate your departed ancestors.

"If I have to recommend one solution for every one of our problems, be it financial, relationship or health, it is doing Tarpanam (offerings to the ancestors). Miracles do happen after the performance of the rituals."
- Dr. Pillai, Founder of AstroVed

The important message of Mahalaya Amavasai is to feed the poor people, animal and birds. This has to be followed atleast in the 15 days of every year !
