What is Muhurat?

Rahu Kalam 7:30 To 9:00 IST

An activity is said to be auspicious when it is performed to provide best results. Behind every activity, the expectations are always for good results. While deciding the schedule for any such activity, one often looks for an auspicious time or Shubh Muhurat.

What is a Muharat? A Muhurat is the most beneficial time chosen to initiate an event so that, not only it is carried out without any hurdles, but it also provides best results. It is that period of time which helps in concentrating the energy of the planets and other astrological factors in an auspicious way so as to void the evil powers and make the result of the work performed most fruitful. If a project is started in a shubh Muhurat, it adds to the possibilities of success. Muhurat harmonizes forces with nature and improves chances of success.

On a wider note, as the event is ‘born’ at the time when it is performed for the first time, then that time decides its future completely. Thus while performing any auspicious activity, favorable cosmic powers are ensured. So for a good fortune, a shubh muhurat is necessary. Whenever you are going to start an important event in your life, which either takes a significant amount of your time and energy, or is going to make its impact on your life for quite some time, then you should perform that action in accordance with the shubh muhurat. A muhurat is calculated based on the Vedic almanac, commonly called the Panchangam. Muhurat is calculated on the basis of many variables.
