It’s Pitru Paksha, the fortnight of the ancestors. This is the two-week period in the Hindu calendar (September 2-16 this year) dedicated to honoring one’s lineage.
This traditionally includes the three generations that have come before you – your parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents that have passed on. It can also include teachers, friends, mentors, and even pets who have departed.
I believe the support of our ancestors is with us all the time, even when we don’t experience it. It becomes more powerful when we consciously connect to their presence.
During this powerful time I invite you to take hold of the support of your lineage today.
What would your ancestors see if they looked down on you and your life right now?
What would they want to tell you? What would they want you to know?
What blessing would they offer you?
