Can anyone who attend an annual pithru/bhathru ceremony function and after having food in ceremony can directly go or visit some other closer relative's house?

What Dharma Shastra say about this?


Manu Smriti 3.249. The foolish man who, after having eaten a Sraddha (-dinner), gives the leavings to a Sudra, falls headlong into the Kalasutra hell.

Manu Smriti 3.250. If the partaker of a Sraddha (-dinner) enters on the same day the bed of a Sudra female, the manes of his (ancestors) will lie during that month in her ordure

AFAIK, these are the only two restrictions for a person who took a Shraddha meal. No such restrictions, like what you have mentioned, are there .
