Notice about chanting during the period dedicated to departed ancestors
According to the lunar calendar, this year the ancestors’ fortnight (pitrupaksha) falls in the fortnight between 15 Sep 2008 to 29 Sep 2008. If we chant ‘Sree Gurudev Datta’ during this period, our ancestor’s derive even more benefit from it and attain momentum faster in the afterlife. This chant helps to protect us from problems due to departed ancestors and also helps our ancestors attain momentum from the Region of the Dead (Martyaloka) to Nether region (Bhuvaloka).
It is highly recommended that all chant ‘Sree Gurudev Datta’ for 6 hours daily during this fortnight. During this period priority should be given to completing the prescribed amount of this chant compared to the chanting the Name of God as per one’s religion . If it is not possible to do 6 hours of chanting every day, we can strive to chant as much as possible.
Please pass this on to your family and friends. If you have any experiences from chanting the Name please do let us know via the ‘Post a comment’ functionality.
