Dwarka is located along the banks of the Gomti River. The Gomti Ghat or series of steps leading into the water is one of the most famous of holy sites in India. It is also one of the most important pilgrimage destinations for the followers of the Hindu religion. In the Hindu sacred epic of Mahabharata, Dwarka in Gujarat was the capital of Lord Krishna’s rule. The holy place is visited by droves of Hindu devotees. It is also a popular location for the performance of the Hindu rituals for the dearly departed souls such as Pind Daan. Pindar that is close to Dwarka is also a holy place where devotees offer the Hindu rituals for the souls of the dearly departed relatives.
Pind Daan is a Hindu ritual for the dearly departed and ancestral spirits that is ultimately aimed to achieve mukti or the freedom from the cycle of life, death, and rebirth for the soul of the deceased person. Pind Daan is said to have originated from Lord Brahma himself. The ritual has been handed down from ancient times and is one of the most important Hindu religious ceremonies. Pind is used as offering when the ritual is conducted by Brahmin pandits or Hindu priests. A pind is a riceball with oats, honey, milk, and sesame seeds. Pind Daan during the period of Ashwin is a very significant religious ritual. One of the seven pinds prepared for the ritual is specifically offered for the soul of the dearly departed.
Hindu devotees located outside of India are met with the challenge of how to perform their Hindu religious obligation for the dearly departed. They may not be able to go to India themselves for the conduct of the ritual.
