    The story

    Great and gallant Karna (Ref:  After Karna death Mahabharat Epic) was served with gold and golden plates in Pitru-Loka. Karna did not offer food and water to his ancestors during his life span on the earth planet. Due to this, he was served gold in Pitru-Loka. Karna requests Deva Indra and Deva Indra allows Karna to offer food and water to his ancestors for 15 days on the earth planet. This happens to be Bhadrapada lunar month. Hence it is called pitru paksha. Yamraj is the head of the Pitru-Loka. He liberates ancestors during pitru paksha to accept offerings from their descendants.

    Importance of Pitru Paksha

    According to Hindu scriptures, there are three debts called Dev, Rishi, and Pitru debts. People offer food and water to fulfill their ancestors who come to the earth planet during pitru paksha. As a tribute and tradition, people perform pitru karya in pitru paksha and followed by Devata karyas after pitru paksha. When we follow this order one will get good results from Devata pujas. Pitrus bestow Santana (generation), Santrupti (happiness), and Sampath (wealth).
    This pitru paksha shraddh is also known in different names depending upon the region and language.
    Pitri Pokkho, Sola Shraddh, Kanagat, Jitiya, Mahalaya Paksha., Apara Paksha, Pitri paksha etc.
