Hindu religion is full of rituals, stories, myths, and beliefs. But all these have some hidden reasons for it. You need to understand it and act on present-day conditions. While most were dependent on agriculture in the past and the season of Ashada Masa is a rainy season.

Since it is important for people who need to engage in ploughing and seeding, all other works are put-off to enable them to concentrate on these most essential works.

It could just be a myth, believing that Ashada Masa is Inauspicious.

But a bigger event like Marriage, Gruhapravesham, Upanayanam can be avoided in today’s scenario, as the rain may disrupt your proceedings for preparations and events.

There is no such rule to avoid other Pooja, Vratha or homa to be conducted in the period. Hindu Puranas also prove that this period to be auspicious.
