Bheesmashtami

Bheeshma Ashtami, or Bhismashtami, is observed on the  magha maasa Shukla Paksha Ashtami

It is believed that Bheesmacharya soul departed on this day.

Bheeshma Tarpana:- It is our Dharma to offer Tarpana for Bheeshmacharya on every year Maagha-maasa Shukla-paksha Ashtami.

Tarpana has to be given even by those who have father.  If father is alive,tarpana should be offered with rice and water. Janivara in Savya. Others offer with Tila and Janivara in Apasavya.

Bheeshma Tarpana is not like Pitru Tarpana and it is just  Arghya, That is: the Tila-water flows down through our four fingers (not through the thumb). Hence there is no Palahara restriction at night.
