      Hi,
      Adhika Masa doesnt have any muhurats. So if it is inevitable(no other choice) then only move. Also Bhadrapada Masam as per telugu calendar doesnt have any muhurats, therefore we cannot do any auspicious event like house warming or marriage etc in Bhadrapada Masa. So Adhika masam is prohibhited so is Bhadrapada. on a whole the two months of Adhika Bhadrapada and Bhadrapada we cannot perform house warming even if it is rented.

    hi,
    Can we shift to the rented house which is not occupied by anyone i.e, constructed 1yr back. We have to move in the month end of August at any cost. Is there any alternative like puja to get rid of the effects, if any. kindly suggest on this regard. Also tell us good day to do milk boiling.

      Hi,
      adhika masam is Bhadrapada hence it is not advised. If you want to change the house then you can enter the house in any of the following thithis
      vidiya, tadiya, panchami, saptami,dasami, ekadashi, triodasi, chaturdasi and Purnima. Take care that you do not enter the house during Varjyam and Durmuhurat which is available in any telugu calendar.
      do the milk boiling and in the meantime start the pooja of lord Ganesha.Do namaskara to the milk while it overflows the vessels for three times.
      Prepare parvanam with the milk and offer it as naivedyam.

    Dear Sir,

    I looked at the various do’s and don’t for this period but didn’t come across a couple of things that I was looking for. Please let me know if there are any limitations on higher studies and new business ventures during this time.

    Thank You.

    Hello Sir,

    We do have same problem as others. We have recently returned back to India and we are searching for rental houses. We are planning to occupy the house between 30-Aug-2012 to 1-Sep-2012. Because currently my husband is staying in guest house and he need to vacate by 30-Aug. But, because of Adhika masam I am bit worried to relocate. Can I know what are bad effects if we do house warming during this period? Also Kindly let me know auspicious day for house warming.

    Thanks in advance.

      Hi Sunil,
      If Shraddha ceremony falls in Bhadrapadam then it has to be performed in both Adhika Bhadrapada and the original or Nija Bahdrapad Masam. That is it has to be performed twice this year.

      There is no restriction on offering of hair or offering your vows to God. So you can go ahead and offer your hair.
