Auspicious programs like Marriages, gruhapravesh, sacred thread wearing, beginning house constructions (Shankhu Sthapana), and many other important functions are postponed due to Ashada month. It is also known as Shunya masam (Null month).

In Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, there is a rare ritual followed in Ashada masam that newly married daughter in law and her mother in law will not stay at one home. Newly married couple stay away from each other in Ashad month i.e., wife goes to her mother’s house for a month. After spending Ashada masam at her mother’s house, she comes back in Shravan month. Hindu Astrology has every reason to explain this rare ritual followed in Ashadh maas. Usually, Ashad month comes in June – July in Gregorian calendar. When a newly wedded couple got their sexual interaction in June, there is a chance of delivering baby in hot summer. New-born baby and mother may suffer a lot from the heat and temperature in summers. To avoid this, newly married couples are advised to be parted during this month.

People apply Mehndi designs on their hands and feet in Ashad month in many places of India. The main reason behind is to get rid of the effects of climate changes that may occur in this month (June – July).

Even though Ashada mahina is inauspicious for auspicious programs, it is very auspicious for pujas and vrata. Rath Yatra in Puri Jagannath temple and Palki Yatra in Pandharpur Vittala temple are celebrated in Ashad month. Chaturmas Vrat begins in this month. As per ‘Vaikhanasa Samhita’, devotees should worship Saptamatruka shakti Goddesses, Lord Bhairava, Varaha, Narasimha, Mahishasura Mardhini, Goddess Durga in Dakshinaya period which begins in Ashada Masa.

  23. sreeram says:

    Asadha masam = Rainy Season = June + July months = In ancient india, economy is dependent on agriculture. Sowing of seeds is to be done in this season when land is fertile and is wet with rain water i.e. men are supposed to be doing their field agricultural work. Doing upaneyam or marriage, means keeping himself away from agricultural work. If man does not sow seeds, then there is no harvest subsequently. So during the rain the human emotions get aroused, due to cool weather and man cannot go out during rain and likely to spend time with his new bride, which is undesirable. If the young men are with their new brides does not go to work, then it is a burden for the father-in-law who has to manage all the field work. Hence it is felt better if the bride goes to her native place and men do not get diverted and work in agricultural field and later during spring the bride can come back to have conjugal bliss. This asadha masam concept is applicable only for newly wed brides and that too for the first year only.
