Hi Bhaktas,

My parents are still alive, therefore I don't do
Sraddha or Tarpanam. But I read in the Manu smrti that
Tarpanam is part of the Pancha Mahayajnas that every
Brahmana must do. 

Therefore my question is - is it my duty to do
tarpanam?
Also should what is procedure for this?

Thanks,
rohit
