and negativities that arise from starting activities related
to living and dying at the wrong time -- for example, starting
a journey, taking a corpse out of the house, getting married
or starting a building. If you start these activities at the
wrong time, you will encounter a lot of obstacles according
to how bad that day was for starting the activity. Many details

will be a lot of fighting and disharmony between the couple
even if they continue to live together and many other obstacles
If you start the construction of
a building at the wrong time, many inauspicious things and problems
can occur during construction. When building, you should use
the methods to analyze the earth, request permission from the
landlord [this does not refer to the person who owns or sold
you the land, but to the landlord naga
and so forth. You ask
permission and dig at the right point so that you don't harm
the landlord. This helps to bring success of the construction
and health, long life, harmony and so forth to the family or
people living in the house, monastery or nunnery.
It is also very important to take
a corpse out of the house at the right time; otherwise, harm
can come to the family members who are still living. They can
experience health problems and even be in danger of death.
If you start a journey at the wrong
time, you will constantly face problems. By starting a journey
at the right time, you can avoid car accidents or airplane crashes.
