According to Hinduism, Pind Daan is an after-life ritual to offer homage to our departed loved one’s as it is believed that offering pind daan can give the liberty from the cycle of rebirth to our beloved ancestors. Pind daan is majorly performed at some specific locations like Prayagraj, Varanasi and Gaya. In this blog, We will focus on the importance, meaning, Cost for Pind daan.


Meaning of Pind daan:

The custom of pind daan has been followed from the time when the Vedas were written. The word Pind daan is combined with two words Pind and Daan where pind means body and Daan means donation. According to Hinduism After the death of a person, his soul leaves the body then the body is burnt into ashes to end the relationship between the soul and body. After the cremation, The ashes of the body are consigned to a holy river like the Ganga and the process is known as Asthi Visarjan. According to the spiritual belief system, once this process is completed, the physical body no longer exists while the soul awaits its reincarnation. There is a common perception that it takes around ten days for a dead person to be reborn in another life cycle. On the 11th and 12th days, food is offered to the dead by a shraddha ceremony to eat. It is believed that on the 13th day, the messengers of death lead the deceased into Yamaloka, the abode of Yama. With sincere last rites performed on him, he may then be given a pleasant or uplifting situation.

Importance of Pind Daan:

The importance of this is that Hindus regard it as a vital matter. Consequently, the food (pind daan) which is presented gets recognition from the dead by means of smelling since they do not eat in real life or even physically eat. The sense of smell and hearing, as well as the transfer of sentiments, can still be sensed by the dead from those who remain on earth in flesh and blood. In such circumstances, the use of pind daan and shraddha ceremony takes place for this purpose.


Cost Of Pind Daan:

The Cost of Pind Daan depends on various factors like Ritual items, location and Priests. The cost of the necessary ritual items, including rice, ghee, black sesame seeds, flowers, incense, and other puja materials, can contribute to the overall cost of pind daan. If the puja is performed at a distant location, travel expenses and accommodation costs must be considered. These costs will depend on factors such as the distance travelled, mode of transportation, and the duration of the stay. Many individuals prefer to engage the services of priests or purohits to conduct the Pind Daan Puja on their behalf.
