What is Tripindi Shradha?
Tripindi Shradha : Tripindi means Pinddaan of our forefathers of previous 3 generations. If anyone in the family from the previous 3 generations has passed away in very young age or old age then those people cause problems to us. To let the people free one has to do Tripindi Shraddha.
Tripindi Shradha is a contribution in the memory of the dear departed. If for three continuous years the contributions are not made to the dear departed then the dead gets angry, so to calm them these contributions are made.
Most people have an idea that Tripindi means satisfying 3 generation forefathers (Father-mother, Grandfather-Grandmother and Great Grandparents). But this does not reveal with the 3 generations. They indicate ‘Asmadkule’,’Matamaha’ and brothers house, In-lows house and in the Teacher’s family. Any soul who is not convinced in his life and passed away, such soul troubles the future generations. Such a soul can be sent to eternalspirits with the help of ‘Tripindi Shradha’.
The approach of Shraddha is ritual of ancestorsdone faithfully by their descendants.

Tripindi Shraddha Vidhi
Generally when a middle age or old age human being passes away, people then do his pinddaan, shraddha and all other rituals. But if a young child or youth passes away not all the rituals are done. This causes their souls to be in a vicious bondage and it in turn causes issues to us. And hence Tripindi Shraddha has to be done to set these souls free and attain their way to the heavens.
It is very necessary to do proper Shrardha every year on their death anniversary. Secondly, the familial Shrardha has to be done in the Pitrapaksh of the month of Bhadrapad. These ceremonies are the Samvatsarik Shrardha and the Mahalaya Shrardha.
If both the Shrardhas are not done continuously for three sequence years, then it causes Shrardha Lop. Additional, it causes pain and problems to the souls of our forefathers and they enter the Preta Yoni or the realm of the spirits. As a result, they cause issues in our present lives as our ancestors expect Moksha through us. This condition is called Pitrudosh. One of the ways to get comfort from this dosha is to do the Tripindi Shrardha as specified in our holy scriptures.
A person who’sKundali has this kind of Dosh should do Tripindi shraddha. Both married and unmarried people can do Tripindi Shraddha. Only single women cannot do Tripindi Shraddha. Any man from a family can do Tripindi Shraddha.
