Auspicious dates for house warming, open house, party, gathering, etc. in 2010

Here is the list of auspicious dates in 2010 for organizing and hosting meet-up with friends and/or relatives (会友), which is produced based on the Chinese almanac Tong Shu.

The dates are applicable for house warming, open house, home party, gathering, and any other similar functions to meet up with friends and/or relatives.
 


 
Bear in mind that although the Tong Shu is a compilation of Chinese astrology and calendaring studies gathering wisdom of thousands of years, we should use it wisely and rationally, but not be too superstitious on it.

Hi sukanya,

Yes, 24 Jan 2010 which you have chosen for your ganapathi pooja is an auspicious day to have prayer and chanting to god according to Tong Shu.

Thanks a lot. I was just wondering that 24th is a navami day after ashtami according to hindu calendar. So, i was a bit doubtful about doing ganapathi homam that day. BTW Who is tong shu?

Hi sukanya,

Tong Shu is a Chinese almanac book normally used to determine the suitable timing for carrying out various activities in 7 categories: prayer, marriage, building construction, trade, funeral, lifestyle and agriculture.

It evolved from the Zhou Dynasty (when I-Ching was introduced) and used by emperors of China from generation to generation, dynasty to dynasty, with more and more compilation added along the several thousands of year.

Tong Shu is the name of the compilation version that used by general public, especially after the last emperor of the last Qing Dynasty. With Tong Shu, the privileged wisdom and knowledge that used to be accessible imperially is now made available to all of us.

The timing advice of Tong Shu is based on complex calculation which include and not limited to the following factors:
- time
- position
- location
- the Qi of Ying & Yang of the 5 elements
- astrological cycle of sun, moon, earth and stars

Altogether there are hundreds over elements, which could be of either auspicious, neutral or inauspicious for that particular time period to certain activities. The strength of each of them is also different in that particular time.

The Tong Shu determined something is auspicious when the combined strength of "auspicious" is much stronger than the combined strength of "inauspicious" for that activity during that time period. Same principle to inauspicious determination.

Hi Madhura,

Although 16 July 2010 is not particularly auspicious for meet-up with friends, it is indeed an auspicious date generally.

That day is also good for wedding, moving, starting business, etc.
