पतन्ति पितरो ह्येषां लुप्तपिन्डोदकक्रिया

 - Shrimadbhagwatgita 1.42


"The non-performance of rituals like pinda shraddha and offering water to deceased ancestors etc, ancestors of such people (who do not perform Shraddha) have to reside in the Hell region. This results in stagnation and no progress of the descendants."
