Seemantham date

Not open for further replies.


I am new to this forum and am from a Tamil Iyer family.

My wife is pregnant now. Does the calendar for Seemantham and other rituals follow the same calendar as the pregnancy calendar?

Ex: our priest said that the Seemantham should be done in 8th month. The start of pregnancy as per the doctor is 5th July (based on the LMP). Going by that count, the 8th month should start on Feb 5th.
Can the Seemantham be done between Feb 5 and March 5?

Dear sir

The calculations are based on tamil month normaly and not as per date. According toyour version 5th July falls inthe tamil month oa AANI. If it is so the 8th month
will be tamil month Thai. So you can perform seemaintham during 15/01/2016 to 14/02/2016 i.e in the mont of Thai. This is the normal calculation.
Consult your aathu vathiyar and fix a suitable date accordin g to the star iof your wife. Normally the sdates availbe forseem,antham is rare in a month two or
three dates only available some times it may beonly one date.
