  1. Hi Saravanan,
    Please advise whether we can wear the dresses on the above stars’ day even if they are not having auspicious tharabalam to the individual?

  2. Hello Sir, I find this article to be very informative. In one of your ealier posts ” How to get a male baby” with a link on this page, you mentioned the constellation as Uthrashada.. but here its mentioned for constellation Uthrabhadrapada. Could You please tell which is the right constellation?
    Thanks and Regards

  3. Hello Sir,Could You please give us example to exact auspicious dates /right constellation/ for february or next months -2011! Kind regards!

  4. Hello Saravana,
    You mention when wearing new clothes, once one’s body comes in contact with it, that is when it becomes used. But – what about the day you purchase the new dress? If you “try it on” to determine if you like it. Then bring it home, wash, then the FIRST day you wear it should be on an auspicious constellation? (or was it the day it was purchased IF someone has to try on the dress before buying it?) Thanks for clarifying this point!

    • Kristen,

      Good question, usually its best to do shopping on an auspicious constellation such as pushya, revati, rohini because most people wear dress for trial before buying and that actually counts, men usually dont wear dresses for trial but most women do, so its ideal to shop on these constellations and wear dress on that same day

  5. If a nakshatra calculator on an Indian website says 7 hours left on Revati, does that only apply for those in India? i.e since I’m in the United States, do I need to subtract the 13 hour time difference?
