Story (Katha) Of Sarva Pitru Amavasya

According to a legend, In the old period, there were two Pitra deities named Agnishvat and Barhi Pad. There was a mind-born daughter of theirs named Akshoda. Akshoda performed penance on the Amavasya day (new moon day) of the Ashwin month  to please her ancestors. By getting pleased for her penance, all the ancestral deities appeared in front of Akshoda. At that time, Akshoda’s whole focus was on one brilliant and extravagant ancestor named ‘Amavasu’. She kept staring at him without blinking her eyes and said to him, “Please accept me as a boon, I want your company”. Hearing these words from Akshoda, all the ancestors got angry. They cursed her that she will go to the Earth from Pitra lok (ancestral world).

After hearing this, Akshoda realized her mistake and she started seeking forgiveness. Then, Pitra deities showed mercy upon her and said that she would take birth in the form of a Mermaid (half Fish- half girl) on earth. Lord Brahma’s descendant Great Sage Parashar  will marry that mermaid( Akshoda) and God Ved Vyas ( Lord Visnu’s avatar) will take birth from her womb. After that, she would get freedom from that curse and will return back to Pitar Lok (ancestral world).

All the ancestors praised Amavasu and gave him a boon that he does not let his mind dwindle against beauty and woman and he controlled his self-control, hence from today onward, this date (tithi) will be known as ‘Amavasu’. There is a belief that from this day forth, this tithi(date) came to be known as ‘Sarva Pitru Amavasya’.
