    I am planning to do Gruhapravesham (house warming) on 7th August 2009 at 9.18 PM in Hyderabad. Please advise if I can go ahead with this or should I change the date?.. Thank you


      There is no effect of Chandra Grahan which will take place on August 6th in 2009, on the day after grahan when you are planning to do Gruhapravesh i.e on 7th August. If you decided the date by consulting brahmin, then you can go ahead. If not, pleace consult good panditji who can advise and perform Grihpravesh puja for you in this regard. But the day is good to perform Gruhpravesh in my view.
