  1. Is Ashada considered inauspicious to start anything new?
    Are there days during Ashada when it is considered OK for commencement of some activities and what are these days and activities.
    There are differences between the Tamil, Telegu, Kannada and other calenders, in terms of interpretation, but all these arise from the same roots in terms of astrological significance and mythological events; please let me know how one reconciles all these differences.
    Thanks
