    Why Shradh is done in the afternoon

    • Noon time is considered best for ancestors’ Shradh. It is said that the time of morning and evening is dedicated to the gods. Lord is worshiped during this period.
    • Shraadh should not be done after sunset, in this the effect of negative forces is intensified.
    • This is the reason why in the afternoon Tarpan and Shradh rituals are performed by remembering the ancestors. Qutup, Rohin Muhurta in the afternoon are considered good for Shradh. Brahmin food should be given during this period itself.
    • According to another belief, Sun God is also related behind performing Shradh in the afternoon. It is said that the food prepared for the ancestors is offered to the fire by burning cow dung. Sun is also the source of fire. It is believed that ancestors take the food of Shradh only through the rays of the sun. The power of the Sun is strong in the afternoon, so it is easy for the ancestors to take food.
