Online Pind Daan is a facility for those people who want to do pind daan or tarpan in Kashi for their ancestors or departed family member but they don’t have time to visit Kashi (Varanasi) to do the same.
Pind Daan is one of the most important final rituals needs to be performed after the death of an individual. Although Pind Daan can be performed at any place but religious importance of Ayodhya, Mathura, Gaya, Kashi/Varanasi, Allahabad, Kurukshetra, Badrinath, and Siddhapur is considered more for performing Pind daan. It is the main reason that thousands of pilgrims daily visit these cities for performing Pind Daan only.
But generally it is not possible for every individual to travel to these places for doing Pind Daan. We at Pitradev, perform the Pind Daan at these mentioned places on behalf of any family member of deceased person. And it is clearly mentioned in the religious book Garun Puran that if you are not able to perform certain kind of ritual due to some constraints, some other person can act as a representative of yours and perform Pooja on behalf of you and all credits of that Pooja will be only yours. Here we assign a priest as your representative and he on behalf of you perform all the Pooja.
The details required during the Pind daan are as follows:
- Complete name, gotra and gender of deceased person.
- Name of father and grandfather, if departed soul was male
- Name of mother in law and great mother in law, if departed soul was married female
- Name of mother and grandmother, if departed soul was unmarried female
- Date and time of death.
- Place of death.
- Name on whose behalf Pooja is to be performed and the relation with the departed one.
Note: - According to Garuda Purana and many Religious books, anyone can perform religious rituals on your behalf. It would be considered successful and all the credit will be yours, as if you performed them.
