How to bid farewell to the souls of your ancestors on Pitru Paksha Amavasya:

The followers of Hinduism believe the souls of their ancestors visit Earth on this day and go back to their heavenly abode on the same day too.

To please the souls of your forefathers, prepare a meal without garlic and ancestors with clean hands. Keep aside some food for the cow, ant, dog and crow deities and perform the sacred havan.

Invite brahmins to your house and feed them the meal prepared with due respect. Members of the family can eat after the Brahmins are fed.

Post the meal, sit with your family and pray for the well-being of the souls of your ancestors.
