Notice about chanting during the period dedicated to departed ancestors
According to the lunar calendar, this year the ancestors’ fortnight (pitrupaksha) falls in the fortnight between 27 Sep 2007 to 11 Oct 2007. If we chant ‘Sree Gurudev Datta’ during this period, our ancestor’s derive even more benefit from it and attain momentum faster in the afterlife.
From this perspective to help our ancestors attain momentum from the Region of the Dead (Martyaloka) to Nether region (Bhuvaloka), it is essential that all chant ‘Sree Gurudev Datta’ for 6 hours daily during this fortnight. During this period priority should be given to completing the prescribed amount of this chant compared to the chanting the Name of God as per one’s religion. If it is not possible to do 6 hours of chanting every day, we can strive to chant as much as possible.
