Pitri Paksha (Shraadh) Between 20th September and 4th October

For the benefit of readers, I would like to let everyone know that Pitru Paksha (Shraadh) will be on between 20th Sep and 4th October. (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 20 सितम्बर से लेकर 4 अक्टूबर के बीच में श्राद्ध (पितृ पक्ष) रहेंगे इसलिए 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 ।

      Procedures bit detailed and difficult to explain here. I would advise you to discuss it with a competent pundit in your city and get the shraaddh procedures done for your father.
