Purnima Shraddha or Shraddhi Purnima-Death Anniversary Ritual in Hindu Religion in India

Shraddhi Purnima

Purnima Shraddha is also recognized as Shraddhi Purnima and Proshthapadi Purnima Shraddha (प्रोष्ठपदीपूर्णिमा).

It is accustomed that Shraddha for those who died on Purnima or Full Moon can be performed only on Amavasya Shraddha Date but can’t be performed on Bhadrapad Purnima. Though Bhadrapad Purnima Shraddha falls one day before Pitri Paksha it is not the part of Pitri Paksha.

Customarily, Pitri Paksha starts on the next day of Bhadrapada Purnima Shraddha.
