Thank you, Sri Vaidya Sundaram, for the additional information. I really
not know that tarpana is offered to forefathers even by those whose
are alive ! Here I would like to add that during amavasya day of every
also pitri tarpana is offered and at that time the person can offer
any known person who has passed away ( irrespective of your relation
him/her ) if you know that he/she is issueless or if you know that no
in the family is offering tarpana to that person. Offering tarpana to
pitri is highly meritorious.
