ಆಷಾಢ ಮಾಸ or Ashada Masa starts June 20th and ends on July 19th 2012 in ನಂದನ ನಾಮ ಸಂವತ್ಸರ Nandana Nama Samvatsara. This entire month is considered inauspicious. Newly wed couple are not allowed to stay in the same house. And in some families I have also seen that Mother-in-Law and Daughter-in-law don’t stay in the same house as well. No idea who or how these beliefs came into existence.
During this month, there are no marriages, upanayanas, or any good deeds performed. However, it is during this month that the Chaturmasa Starts, and the last day of ಆಷಾಢ ಮಾಸ or Ashada Masa is Bhimana Amavasya.More about this festival later in the month.
Stay tuned for our most auspicious month – ಶ್ರಾವಣ ಮಾಸ or Shravana Masa coming soon.
