Pitru Paksha From 28th Sep 2015 to 13th Oct 2015

For the benefit of readers, I would like to let everyone know that Pitri Paksha (Shraadh) has already started from 28th Sep and it will end on 13th Oct at 5:35am (Indian Standard Time). Navratri will start from 13th Oct. (Android users who are watching this post through my app (Astro Junction App) on their smartphones, should click on the title of the post above to see the complete post.)
So, please refrain from griha pravesh, marriage, buying anything new or any other auspicious activity. During this paksha (fortnight), people offer their tribute to their fathers and forefathers who have already passed away. So, this period is not considered favorable for any auspicious activity. 

पाठकों के लाभ के लिए मैं यहाँ बताना चाहूँगा की 28 सितम्बर से श्राद्ध (पितृ पक्ष) आरम्भ हो चुके हैं और 13 अक्तूबर को सुबह भारतीय समय के हिसाब से 5:35 पर समाप्त होंगे और इसी दिन से नवरात्री प्रारम्भ हो जायेगी । पितृ पक्ष के कारण गृह प्रवेश, विवाह, नयी वस्तुएं खरीदना इत्यादि किसी भी शुभ कार्य का इस समय के बीच में करना ठीक नहीं है । इस पक्ष में लोग अपने पितरों को श्रद्धांजलि अर्पित करते हैं और उनका श्राद्ध करते हैं इसलिए यह समय किसी भी शुभ कार्य के लिए उचित नहीं है ।
