- September 22th (Tuesday) - Sarvapitri Amavasya
(all fathers' new moon day) is intended for all ancestors, irrespective of the lunar day they died. It is the most important day of the Pitru Paksha Those who have forgotten to perform shraddha can do so on this day. A shradha ritual performed on this day is considered as fruitful as one conducted in the holy city of Gaya, which is seen as a special place to perform the rite, and hosts a fair during the Pitru Paksha period. The shraddha involves pinda-daan, which is an offering to the ancestors of pindas (cooked rice and flour balls mixed with ghee and black sesame seeds). Recommended things to bring with you for puja:
1. Three pindas balls
2. If you remember any food item that was favorite to your ancestors, bring it (small quantity)

5. Flowers - temple will provide if you do not have them
