Housewarming in Ashada Month – Kannada – Telugu Ashada Masam Grah Pravesh


There are many communities that believe that housewarming or grah pravesh should not be performed in Ashada month. Some people even do not shift to rented houses in Ashad Masam. There is no Hindu scripture backing for this belief.

This taboo is not followed in neighboring Maharashtra and Gujarat during the Ashada month. Here people perform house warming ceremonies etc.

If you look for housewarming dates in Panchang and calendars you will not get any dates in Ashada month as most of them do not mark dates in Ashada month.

If you want to perform puja or ceremony in Ashada month then look for shubh dates in the month. This is marked in most calendars and use them for your rental and housewarming purposes.

Not performing housewarming is not based on Hindu scriptures. This is purely regional belief. Hinduism does not ask anyone to follow any such rules.

It is for you to take an independent decision and do what is best for you. Stop discussing such things with others as there will thousands of opinion on Ashada Masam.
