ಆಷಾಢ ಮಾಸ or Ashada Masa starts June 28th and ends on July 26th 2014 in Jaya Nama Samvatsara – ಜಯ ನಾಮ ಸಂವತ್ಸರ
. 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.
Some dates in ಆಷಾಢ ಮಾಸ – Ashada Masa:
- July 7th – Chaturmasa Begins
- July 8th – Ekadashi
- July 12th – Poornima – Hunnime
- July 22nd – Ekadashi
- July 26th – Amavasya
Stay tuned for our most auspicious month – ಶ್ರಾವಣ ಮಾಸ or Shravana Masa which starts from July 27th – August 25th 2014.
