I am a Hindu and Maratha Kshatriya from Goa.
I just wanted to ask few questions which I believe to have different answers from different brahmans I consulted so far.
It's been a month, I lost my grandmother. My Father performed her last rites.
I understand and believe that, we should not celebrate any coming festival on large scale, as we are still in a deep sorrow of my granny's death and we will continue to do that for at least 1 year.
But what I am not sure about is if we can visit any famous or averagely famous religious temples in this 1 year? If not why? What is the reason behind that? Does Shastra recommend that? If yes, where should I refer this?
I would appreciate the reference of Shashtra/vedic documents/religious references rather than just a mythologically suggested do's and dont's.
