Mahalayapaksham Procedures & Rules

Just before (14 days before) Kanya Maasa Amavasya – this period is called MahAlayapaksha. Failure to perform Mahalayapaksham earns the wrath of Pithrus and He is conferred with Pithru Dosha, according to Saasthraas. If unable to perform due to unforeseen circumstances, atleast it should be performed during “Thithi” of Parents or all days beginning Panchami, MadhyAshTami, Vyatheepaadam, Gajachchaayai MahAbharaNee punya days.

If anyone’s Father has passed away due to (death due to) weapon, TharpaNam should be performed on Chathurdashi Thithi based on Shashtra Mahaalayam during Mahaalayam.

If due to extreme circumstances one could not perform Mahaalayam, then it MUST BE PERFORMED during Thula, Vruschika Maasa KrishNa Paksham and complete it.
