Muhurtham Dates
We all have various occasions to celebrate among our families and friends, be it an engagement, marriage, house-warming, birthday or just a friendly get together. At these times, we are hard pressed to visit an astrologer, to find out the best possible date on which to conduct the occasion. How would it be if we could just find the best date for our event, all by ourselves.
Amavasai Dates
Amavasai is the first tithi, or the first day in the waxing and waning of the Moon's passage. Tithi is a Sanskrit word meaning distance. It is the distance between the Sun and Moon in the galaxy. The Moon is invisible on Amavasya. Even though considered a good day, auspicious events like marriages are not conducted on that day.
Pournami Dates

Pradosham Dates
"Praleeyanthe asvin thosha" is how it is described in Sanskrit. It literally means that it is the time that this is the time when all doshas are suppressed. We all do a lot of activities during the day. It is a mix of good and bad. This pradhosha time is when God blesses our good actions and forgives our unknown sins.
