All the main rules to be followed in Shradh Paksha
Mahalaya Shradh starts from Saturday 10th September 2022.
1) On the day of Shradh, after reading the Mahatma of the seventh chapter of Bhagavad Gita, then the entire chapter should be recited, and its fruit should be offered to the deceased soul.
2) Chant the following mantra thrice at the beginning and end of Shradh.
Read the mantra carefully:

देवताभ्यः पितृभ्यश्च महायोगिभ्य एव च l
नमः स्वाहायै स्वधायै नित्यमेव भवन्त्युत ll
🙏🏻 (We salute all the gods, ancestors, great yogis, swadha and swaha, all of them are the givers of eternal fruits.)
3) By reciting a special mantra in Shradh, the ancestors are satisfied, and the satisfied ancestors bless your clan
Read the mantra carefully: Om Hrim Srim Klim Svadhadevyai Svaha
4) Whoever does not have a son, his Dauhik (daughter’s son) can perform Shradh.
5) Use odorless incense at the time of worship and do not use bilva fruit and do not smoke only ghee.
