Importance of Aadi Month in Tamil calendar | Aadi Masam Mahatmya

Aadi month (Aadi masam) is known as inauspicious in Tamil calendar. It corresponds with Ashada masam in lunar calendars followed in North India, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Karnataka. What is the importance of Aadi month in Tamil calendar? Why it is considered inauspicious? This article gives you brief information about the Aadi Masam mahatmya.

The word ‘Aadi’ is originated from the Sanskrit word ‘Aashadi’. Aadi masam begins with Karkataka Sankraman or Karka Sankramanam of Surya Bhagavan (Sun’s transition to Cancer zodiac). Karka Sankraman or Aadi month marks the beginning of Dakshinayanam (night time for Gods). Utharayanam is considered auspicious for shubhakarya like engagement, marriage, gruhapravesh, etc. But Dakshinayanam is most auspicious for worshipping Gods and Goddesses. Aadi month is full of temple festivals and auspicious days for worship Gods.

In Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, and some parts of Kerala, marriages are performed in Aadi month (Mithuna Aashada) due to their differences in time periods. But in Tamil Nadu, Aadi masam is strictly avoided for marriages.

Aadi Karthigai, Aadi Pooram, Aadi Perukku, Aadi Amavasai, etc. are some importance festivals in Aadi masam in Tamil calendar.

  62. Bala Chandran says:

    In the beginning of yr article you said Aadi is inauspicious. Towards the end you said..Utharayanam is auspicious for marriages, etc.

    Many articles about Aadi month begins conveniently by saying Aadi is inauspicious. And towards end writer says Aadi is auspicious for this and that.

    Light and Darkness (days and nites) are God created and are sacred undoubtedly and devoid of any flaws.

      Bala Chandran: Please note that Thai to Aani is Utharayanam and Aadi to Margazhi is Dhakshinayam. So the author is correct to state Uhtarayanam is auspicious for marriages etc, as it is from Thai to Aani. Aadi is good only for activities related to farming, praying, pooja etc. Not for any “worldly pleasure” activities such as buying stuff, marriage, consumation etc.
