Dashaah and Ekadashaah Shraaddh Rituals

10th Day Rituals ($451)

This is done on the 10th/11th or on the 12th day after death. This includes all 10 days of Shraaddh offering to the departed soul. 10 Pind are offered. This ritual lets the Aatman progressively detach from the body since the Body that was made from five basic elements was cremated and in the first 10 days the Aatman was progressively made aware that the body was dissolved into fire thus Aatman was requested to go towards Pitrulok.
