  • That is Ramayana,the whole journey of Sriraama and Seete runs in misary,Lakshmana spent time in forest,Bharat though he was in Ayodhya not sat on throne,father Dasharata seen all these at the end of life,was this auspicious ? Commented Nov 29, 2019 at 14:33
  • I heard from people's around me that,once a marriage done in a family,there should not be another marriage or auspicious function within a year or Samvatsara (Yugadi festival to next Yugadi festival) in that family.But i need to know the astrological or vaidic shastra's reason.

  • Please do not forget that marriage of all 4 brothers were performed under guidance of Rishi Vashishta who was one of the SaptraRishis (highest level of Rishi that one can attain). Rishi Vashishta and Kull Guru of Janaka said marriage of 4 brothers will be gud then who can put question on that decision of those great sages of Treta Yuga..? You think people of Kali yuga has more knowledge than Great sages of Treta yuga..? Reall..? Please think again.. on whom you are putting question mark :) Besides all those miseries was just Leela of Lord Vishnu.. He is beyond auspicious and unauspic..

  • Iam agreeing your valuable comment and respecting.My question mark is on auspicious or unauspicious situation in my comment not on any role or icons or sages or their actions.My question is also on auspicious or unauspicious related to brother marriage rituals in different dates of year.There is lot of gap inbetween people of Kaliyuga,dwapara yuga,treta yuga and satyayuga people based on knowledge or atma gyan.Topic is going to Ramayana.Coming to my question,searching reason & solution for No 2 marriages in a year of family.Why not ?

1 Answer 1


There is a general belief in Hinduism that we should give some gap between marriage of one member to another member in the same family. This also has a scriptural basis.

I could not find anything related to brothers marriage in same family but the general rule of giving a gap should be maintained. ( Bold emphasis mine)

From Narada Purana chapter 56 which talks about general astrology.

  1. Prohibitions in marriage : A daughter's marriage should not be conducted for three seasons after a son's marriage, neither should be sacrament (for the change to married life, vrata). When there has been an auspicious event, there shall not be another auspicious event closely following.

So it is recommended to maintain a gap between two auspicious events like marriages and other sacraments.

For more detail, it's recommended to consult a knowledgeable astrologer for next muhurta and conduct marriage.

  • Noted,my doubt was will it be dosha if auspicious events followed by auspicious events,as it's happened in my own family ,since then unexpected suffering we experiencing Commented Jan 19, 2020 at 4:10
