Bhishma at his death bed Kurukshetra war.image

Pithamaha Bhishma was born as Devavrata for Shantanu of Puru /Kuru Dynasty and Ganga Devi. Bhishma never married and remained celibate because he promised his father’s would be father in-law that he would never lay claim to the kingdom because that was the condition Shatanu’s lover , Satyavati ‘s father imposed to permit his daughter to marry Shantanu..By remaining celibate Bhishma ensured that he would have no children who might lay claim to the kingdom.For this noble act, Devavrata was blessed by Devas ,calling him ‘ one who has done the impossible, Bhishma ‘.Bhishma remained as the Patriarch of the Kuru Dynasty, standing by the side of step mother Satyavathi and helped the dynasty. He left his mortal coil in the Mahabharat Battle,postponing his death from Dakshinayana to Uttarayan. This day occurs during the Shukla Sapthami in Makara Maasa( around first week of February,)

As Bhishma had no descendants it is ordained that people are to remember him and perform Tharpana and head bath on this day. People who lost their father are to perform Tharpana.Others are to take bath by keeping Arka Patra,Erukku Leaf,three on the head two each on each soldier( total Seven leaves) ,keep Akshata on the head and take head bath. No meals at night. Only light tiffin is permitted. No garlic and onion and of course no meat.
