Bharani Shraddha is performed during Pitru Paksha when Bharani Nakshatra conquer during Aparahna Kala. Bharani Nakshatra overcome either on Chaturthi Tithi or Panchami Tithi during Mahalaya Paksha.

Bharani Shraddha is also known as Chauth Bharani or Bharani Panchami when Bharani Nakshatra overcomes during Aparahna on Chaturthi Tithi or on Panchami Tithi respectively.

Bharani Shraddha is known as Maha Bharani Shraddha. Nakshatra Bharani is significant during Pitru Paksha because it is ruled by Yama, the God of the Death.
