What is the method of performing Tarpan and Pitru tarpan?
‘Trup’ means satisfying others. The word ‘tarpana’ has been formed from the root word ‘Trup’. Offering water to God, Sages, ancestors’ soul and human beings and satisfying them through it is called tarpan. The objective of performing tarpan is that God, deceased ancestors’ souls etc whose names are pronounced while performing tarpan, should bestow happiness on us. Brahmayadnyang (performed during sacrificial fires), snanang (performed daily after bath), shraadhang (performed during shrāadha) are the various types of tarpans that are part of the various rituals and should be performed during the respective occasions.
