Fortunately I don’t have to perform as my parents are living but I have:
Some lingering questions regarding Shraadha 1. What if one is working and unable to perform Amavasa tarpana after Madhyanika? Is it allowable to perform in morning or evening?
2. It appears tarpana is performed by Trivarnika Dvija jaatis and nowadays appears limited to some Brahmins. What about other varna/ outside varna or religions ? Or do they get benefit when Brahmins offer tarpana to remaining beings? Just like reciting Gayatri by Brahmins benefits all as per Mahaperiyava ( Kanchi Shankaracharya: Sri Chandrasekhara Saraswati, attained samadhi 1993/1994)

Towards tomarrow's Mahalaya Tarpana/Shraddha: some more details from the fb post of Sh. Subrahmanyam.
One should wear PAVITRAM i.e A ring finger was tied/fitted with a ring made of Kusha(Darbha) ends with ends pointing out which can make any one to be pure & Remove any Sarira dosha for the time being to perform that karma as Vidhi.
Mahalaya Special""The meaning of some words that come in Shraddha is special"1. Sankalpa = "Sankalpa: Karma Manasam" Pronunciation by deciding that I will do such karma as a quote!2. Moment = Inviting Brahmins who are in God and father positions feels like a "moment".3. Madhumathi chanting = chanting of Madhuvatha Rutayathe Mantra ೩.4. Kush = Darbha5. Youth = rice seeds6. Sesame = black sesame7. Bhringaraja = Garaga leaves8. Naveeti = Putting the birth of a boss9. Antique(Prachinaveti) = Sundays are on the right shoulder and left hand down. This is what should be there while performing "Pitru Archana" today.10. Savya = Janeva putting on left shoulder right hand below11. Darbha letter = sliced darbha12. Kurcha = Device made of seven (4) dabha. This is the most important in Pindapradhan.13. Pani Homa = Making Homa in the hands of Brahmins14. Vikira = Deva - Pouring water in front of Brahmins leaves and spilling rice.15. Parvana = As a quote "Triyakrutam Parvana" the children given to these three are called "Parvana".16. Patrochalana = Deva, Pitra Brahmins removing the supreme leaves after lunch.17. Brahmaarpana = Krishna offering the food given by God in Shraddha, father to Brahmins.18.

some Telugu Procedure for the use from fb post of Sh. Phani Kasibhotla:
