How Rituals For the Dead (Pitru Paksha) Can Help You

Sadhguru explains the significance of Mahalaya Amavasya or Pitru Paksha, and why the tradition of honoring our ancestors is significant.

"The people that we refer to as your ancestors, they may not be necessarily be wandering around, hanging on to the trees, but they are living within you." -Sadhguru

"How much of ancestry stays alive within you, on one level, it enriches your life, on another level, it enslaves your life." - Sadhguru

"You distance yourself genetically from them so that this life operates and organizes itself as a fresh life, as a new possibility, that it doesn't become a repetition of the past." - Sadhguru
