'Gaushala, Nepal - March 3, 2012: A man performing !rAddha or Shraaddha for his ancestor at Pashupatinath temple. !rAddha or Shraaddha (Sanskrit: AA AYA AA AA AA| AYA AA) (Death Anniversary) is a Sanskrit word which literally means anything or any act that is performed with all sincerity and faith (!raddhA). In the Hindu religion, it is the ritual that one performs to pay homage to oneaas 'ancestors' (Sanskrit: Pit!Aas), especially to oneaas dead parents. Conceptually, it is a way for people to express heartfelt gratitude and thanks towards their parents and ancestors, for having helped them to be what they are and praying for their peace. It also can be thought of as a ''day of remembrance.'' It is performed for both the father and mother separately, on the days they became deceased. It performed on the death anniversary or collectively during the Pitru Paksha or Shraaddha paksha (Fortnight of ancestors), right before Sharad Navaratri in autumn.'
