Through Tarpan… Havan… Daan…we can thanks our ancestors


when the warrior King Karna died during the Mahabharat war and his soul went to heaven, he was given gold ornaments instead of food. Feeling that he cannot keep himself on these things, he addressed Indra of Heaven and asked him why he is not getting real food. Then Indra told Karna because he gave these objects as their whole life charity but never donated food to their ancestors. On which Karna replied that he was not aware of ancestors. Upon hearing this Indra agreed to give one chance to Karna to Earth for a period of sixteen days so that he could cook food in the memory of her ancestors and donate.
After receiving 16 day’s Karna Use this opportunity to give peace to ancestors and also it has benefited him in Pitru lok.
