Bheeshmastami

Magha Shudda Astami

This is the day on which Bheeshma did the dehatyaaga after being in the Shara panjara for 56 days.

Bheeshmacharyaru was brahmachari, throughout his life.  He sacrificed his marriage for the wishes of his father.  He was rightly called as “pitamaha”.  As he was the pitamaha for all of us, it is with great respect that one has to give tarpana.   On this day, even Jeevanpitru also has to give Jalatarpana to Bheeshmacharyaru.  Tarpanadhikarigalu to use ellu.  Pleased with the tarpana, it is said that Bheeshmaru will bless with putrasantanaadi phala.
