In the past few days I have got numerous queries from the readers asking about the shubh muhurta for buying a vehicle. So, I thought to write this post to let all my readers know that an inauspicious time is approaching in which new vehicles should not be purchased. This time is called 'adhik maas'. It starts from 18th August and ends on 16th September.
What is Adhik Maas It is also called adhi maas or mal maas. There is a surya sankraanti in every hindu lunar month. It happens in a span of 2-3 years when a particular lunar month does not have surya sankranti in it. This particular month is called adhik maas. After the current adhik maas the next adhik maas will come in 2015.
What should be done in this period All tasks which have already been started before adhik maas started, charity, jap, shraadhh (last rites).
What should not be done in this period Because this maas (month) is considered to be inauspicious, there are several things which should not be done in this period like wedding, mundan, entering a new house (Griha Pravesh), wearing new clothes, buying a new car, naam karan sanskaar (Giving name to a baby), buying jewellery, conceiving etc.
