Is there any mention among the theosophic texts about the elaborate post death rituals conducted by surviving hindu family members for the 'advancement' of the soul. The rituals in a shorter simpler form is also conduted annually and reasons cited are the same.

Do these prayers and offerings really help the deceased? What i have read so far indicates,one can potentially harm a souls's progress by contacting thru mediums etc, by the same logic, then, do prayers help the progress?
