Rudraksha in Shraddh Paksha (The key to absolve Karmic issues)
The period of Shraddh Paksha is observed after Ananta Chaturdashi for a period of 15 days (from 6/9/17 to 20/9/17). This period is also known as Pitru Paksha. In Hinduism Pitru refers to deceased ancestors. Time and again scriptures have described the journey of the soul in life, death and rebirth. A soul takes birth in a body based on his Karmas (actions). The ones with high level of meritorious deeds are blessed with a human body and intellect. Here the soul is given a chance to fulfill his desires, evolve, educate, serve and leave a legacy of positive actions. Here the aim of the soul must be to finally achieve freedom from this cycle of birth and death that causes rebirth.
Human life is filled with challenges and pitfalls. The choices an individual may make for survival can often cause negative Karma. Further unfulfilled desires can add up to ancestral Karma for descendants of the same family. In Vedic Astrology the term Pitru Dosh in horoscope implies the same. On a positive note this is a message for help from a deceased loved one whose soul wishes to be at peace. This is the call of the soul to be absolved from negative Karma and unfulfilled desires. When divine intervenes everything happens at the right place and time. The right time to absolve Karma of ancestors and self is during the period of Shraddh Paksha.
Lord Shiva is considered to be the ultimate embodiment of the soul in its purest and most auspicious aspect. The Rudraksha seeds have found their origin from the eyes of this pure divine energy. When lord Shiva gave these multifaceted seeds to mankind he displayed his selfless aspect for the welfare of all. As per scriptures Moksha (salvation) is achieved only by those souls who have experienced the path of righteousness, a meaningful life, fulfilled desires and a complete life free of Karmic debts. The Rudraksha is the seed that has been glorified to open this journey to all. These multifaceted seeds exist from 1 to 21 mukhi and each seed is assigned a deity from the Hindu pantheon.
Shraddh Paksha is the time to wear these divine seeds and emulate Lord Shiva in his compassionate aspect of giving selflessly. Charity involving food and clothing to Priests, poor and needy people can be practiced. People also feed other forms of life like crows, dogs and cows to pacify malefic planets. Donating any Rudraksha or a Rudraksha rosary mala of 108 beads is considered to be one of the purest acts of selfless giving. An act of such donation emulates the compassionate nature of lord Shiva whose mere glance is known to absolve negative Karma. Lord Shiva is often requested with words like “Mahapapaharam Devam” (free me from evil Karmas), Akala Mrityu Haranam (ward of untimely death). Scriptures clearly state that these functions are provided to those who wear or donate a Rudraksha.
