Mahalaya Amavasya is the day to get the blessing from the ancestors. According to Hindu mythology in this day Lord Vishnu permitted the departed souls to visit earth.

By performing certain rituals and rites, they can cleanse the negative karmas of the Soul so that its further journey is less burdened and more peaceful. These remedies, when performed by the offspring, can also help the soul in attaining salvation. Our ancestors leave behind their good and bad karmas. We enjoy happiness, success, peace and prosperity because of their good karmas and face obstacles, hindrances and illness in life due to some of their bad karmas that keeps reflecting in our life.  When we perform rituals for their peace, they bless us in return as we have helped them in releasing their negative karmic ties.
