Dear SathishRao,

PVR Narasimha Raoji has recorded a very good mp3 detailing the important aspects of Muhurtha selection for Thread ceremony.

You can download this from SJC Boston mp3 download site.
The exact one is Lesson 138 on 10 Nov 2008. There is just one part to this.

Hope this helps you
Shrikanth

Dear satishrao,

Did they give you a muhurtha time with the Jun 29 as well.

On the rough glance Jun 29 seems alright to me;

Tithi is Shukla Dasami (ruled by Moon)
Vara is Friday (Venus is strong in his own house)
Nakshatra is Swati - usually considered an auspicious nakshatra to be atleast born in.
Yoga is Siva yoga (Me);
Karana is Garija (Jupiter)

I'm assuming they suggested a 9:00a approx muhurtha with Cancer lagna and Sun in the 12th - with an addition of donation some light/lamps.

Dear satishrao,

Ideally one would like Jupiter to be placed with strength in a strong trine. Kendra placement is the second alternative.

But such idealistic placements are not practical from a muhurtha perspective.
I mean you'll probably get such a muhurtha lagna but it may be based on a 3:00AM muhurtha - which is not practical.

I'm not suggesting you take/consider this Jun 29 muhurtha - just for the sake of explanation.

This muhurtha is practical; at 9:10a - the Navamsa lagna has a beautiful Jupiter in Pisces - that will more than compensate for the Jupiter in the Rasi chart.

In the Rasi chart we maximize the advantage - Fill the 11th house with planets (here we have Jupiter-Venus-Ketu). Natural Benefic mercury now blesses the Cancer Ascendant and a powerful malefic force of Sat-Mars rules over the 3rd house. the rest of the panchanga elements are fine as I've mentioned previously.

Quick overview of other times on Jun 29 is not very good and practical.

I'm sure there are other suitable days that we can look at during that time period of Jun.

Hope my explanation helps you in your planning.

Dear Mr Rao,

I am sorry to say that there is NO MHURTHA for Upanayana from June 2012 to December 2012.

The reason is follows-------1) Shukra becomes Astha from 4-06-12 to 12-06-12. ( Upanayana or Marriage or Devatha prathishta cannot be done during Ashtha Kaal of Guru or Shukra )

2) Adhika Maasa starts from 18th august to Sept 16th ( No auspecious function will be held during this period )

3) Ashada Maasa starts from 15th july to 16th august ( --------------------do -----------------------------)

4) Dhakshinayana starts from June 20th to december 28th .( In dakshinayana , upanayana cannot be performed )

Therefore there is no use in seeing Upanayana Muhurtha during this period .
When there is no Upanayana Muhurtha during this period, there is no point in seeing nakshatra, thithi, muhurtha lagna, ashtama shuddhi, shoonya maasa , week day , Guru bala , tara bala etc, etc-----


Regards

P.S.Rao

Dear SathishRao,

The importance of Shukra Astha should be considered low. But doing this in Uttarayana is more important. So in essence your window is from now until end of the Uttarayana.
Depending on who you ask - end of the Ayana will differ - but its mostly around end of Jun to early Jul.

From what I looked around for favourable muhurthas after Jun 29 - there is actually none. (which is understandable given the fact that the ayana ends few days after that ).

I'd still recommend contacting some priests in India and getting a second opinion about this. Some good priests/knowledge people may be able to suggest an alternative dates - but I still doubt you can find something into 2nd wk of Jul.

sathishrao wrote:Dear All,
I am a little confused, with this. Does this mean that nobody can perform any auspicious rituals from April till end of the year 2012 ?

Yes, there is no UPANAYANA MUHURTHA from June till December2012.( Only Upanayana Muhurtha )I have already told the reason in my earlier answer.

In Ashaada Maasa no upanayana or marriage to be held , not auspecious month pl note. ( in this period u will not have any marriage muhurtha also --July 16th to august 15th )

Brahmins follow the month from Sankramana to Sankramana, where as other castes follow from Amavasya to amavasya or Prathama thithi of Shukla paksha to Last tithi of Krishna paksha.

Therefore as per us -- Dakshinayana starts from KARKA SANKRAMANA ( 16th july 2012) to MAKARA SANKRAMANA (14th January 2013 ) We follow Soorya maana caluculation and not Chaandra maana )
Since Ravi starts moving towords south ( dakshinayana ) from 20th june onwords, i wrote this date in my earlier answer to u.

Others:- Dakshinayana starts from 4th july 2012 to 28th december2012. They follow Chaandra maana paddathi. I hope i am clear to u now.

It is not reasonable to say that only Guru Astha should be taken into consideration for upanayana muhurtha. Both Guru and Shukra are very very important in every muhurtha ( including Upanayana ), whether u r Righvedi or Yajurvedi. The reason i will brief u later

Why 29th of June is not acceptable ?

It is difficult to explain in writing as to why 29th is not acceptable for upanayana. I am not sure whether u will undersyand if i say this in writing. Any how let me try to explain-- WHY ?

!) As per Solar calender ( Soorya maana system )-- Mithuna Maasa means when Ravi is in Mithuna rashi.
Ravi enters mithuna rashi on 14-06-2012 and stays there till 15-07-12.

2) As per Lunar calender ( Chaandra maana paddathi)-- Ashada maasa starts from 20-06-12 to 19-07-12. That means on 29th june , Ravi is in mithuna rashi.

3) On 29th june , Ravi in Mithuna rashi but Ashaada maasa in lunar calender. In such case upanayana cannot be performed. It is also called as Shoonya Maasa.

That is why in local panchanga u will not find upanayana muhurtha on 29th june.

This is as per Hindu electional Astrology by B.K.Shridhar. Courtsey by Anuradha.

Kindly refer Muhurtha Question thread


OTHERS FOR UR KNOWLEDGE:-

1) when Ravi is in Mithuna Rashi during Ashada Maasa, or
when Ravi is in Dhanur Maasa during Pushya Maasa, or
When Ravi is in Kanya rashi during Bhadrapada Maasa
The marriage should not be conducted. It is called SHOONYA MAASA Now a days people insists jyothishi that he ( groom ) dont have the time and he wanted ----right now. And also because of the non-avilability of marriage hall , the people dont have much choice to select/choose the timing and date for the marriage.P.Srinivas. Rao

The above is applicable to Upanayana also.

Dear Sampat Kumar,

It may be beneficial for you and the others if you could open a separate thread for your request.
Also please post the approx time window (which month approx) when you want to perform the event.

Dear kmaganti,

There are quite a few dates available in May 2013.

Including aspects of practicality (school closures etc.,) - I'd say May 29, 2013 around 9:35-9:40a is a good time.Cancer Ascendant, Panchami tithi, Wednesday, Uttaraashadha nakshatra
bunch of planets in the 11th house - which is good.
Navamsa lagna is Virgo with Venus and Jupiter.

Strong Mercury in the 12th house in Rasi chart.
Highly recommend donating good amount of learning materials (books, pens/pencils, paper etc., to the needy)

With best wishes

Dear Mr. Ramanan/Srinivas

Please help me in fixing Aksharabayasam Muhurtam for my son.

Not sure if Aksharabayasam needs to be preformed in Uttarayanam or Dakshinayanam. This year our family cannot perform his aksharabayasam in Uttarayanam

We are planning to do his Aksharabayasam in Hyderabad

His Details: Rohini 4th pada Makar Lagna born in Middletown, CT, USA

Looking at panchanga and our trip to Hyderabad, India, I am thinking on following muhurtas, please advise

1. Sep 08 2013 10:14 to 10:28 – Tula Lagna & Mesha Navamsa
2. Sep 08 2013 09:16 to 09:30 – Tula Lagna & Dhanur Navamsa
3. Sep 08 2013 07:24 to 07:37 – Kanya Lagna & Mesha Navamsa.

I am of the opinion that 1st and 2nd look good as in Rashi chart 4th lord and 5th lord is getting exalted in first house.

3rd also looks good to me as lagnesha is exalted in lagna.

Please advise, if this is something I should consider or wait for some other time and perform his aksharabayasam in USA.

Regards.

Dear Ramkumarmp,

You may want to narrow down the period to atleast a few months. Ideally you may want to pick a month between Apr - Jul.
