Garuda Purana: Know why Pind Daan is considered necessary after death!

Garuda Purana is one of the 18 Mahapuranas of Sanatan Dharma. 
It is believed that in the Garuda Purana, through the conversation between Lord Vishnu and his vehicle Garuda, people have been told about policy, rules, virtue, knowledge, austerity, yagya etc. Along with this, the rites after death, the soul and all the worlds have been mentioned. In the Garuda Purana, the importance of the body from the last rites to the pind daan and the thirteenth after death has been told. Know here why it is necessary to do Pind Daan after death.

According to Garuda Purana, after death, the soul of the dead person stays with his family members for 13 days. She wants to enter the body again, but she is unable to do so. During this, the soul continues to suffer from hunger and thirst and cries. Meanwhile, the Pind Daan given to the soul by its family members for 10 days, makes its subtle body which is the size of a thumb.

This subtle body decides the journey to Yamalok again after 13 days and enjoys the auspicious and inauspicious results there. From the first day Pinddaan to the head, from the second day to the neck and shoulders, from the third day to the heart, from the fourth day to the back, from the fifth day to the navel, from the sixth and seventh days to the waist and lower part, from the eighth day to the legs, Hunger and thirst etc. arise from the ninth and tenth day.

This Pind Daan gives strength to the soul which enables it to travel up to Yamaloka. Therefore, in Garuda Purana, it has been said that Pind Daan is necessary for ten days for the person who dies. It is believed that on the 13th day, the souls of such people are dragged to Yamalok by the Yamadoots who do not donate their bodies for them. Such a person wanders here and there as a phantom. After Pind Daan, on the thirteenth day when the relatives of the deceased feed 13 Brahmins, the soul gets freedom from the phantom vagina.
