How is auspicious muhurta calculated?
The methods of calculating shubha (auspicious) Muhurat are simple. We should be aware about how it is done
Shubh or Auspicious muhurta is moment of the time to start a long term or important life activity. Finding a shubha muhurta before starting an important activity is of great importance. This is especially true in India. In an earlier article we have discussed about finding the muhurta or the auspicious time ourselves. In this article, we will understand how we should calculate the shubh muhurta.
What is a Muhurta? 🌗
In simple terms, muhurta is the auspicious time to do any work of importance. It is a belief that if we start any work in an auspicious time, the probability of success is greater. We know that the position of the planets at birth time is important to analyse the person's life. In the same way, the time of starting a new work is considered the time of the birth of that activity. We can find out from the position of the planets on this time about how the activity will move forward in the future.
How is Muhurta Calculated? 🌗
To find Muhurta, we need to refer to Panchanga or the almanac. The word ‘Panchanga’ means five limbs. These are – Tithi, Yoga, Karan, Vara and Nakshatra. We try to find a time when most of these five points are pointing towards ‘auspicious indications. The probability of all the five points pointing towards auspicious is very low. It is very important to keep in mind the activity or purpose for which the Muhurta is being calculated. Further, it is important to correlate the karakatva or causation of the planets as well. We also need to analyse these planets in rasi chakra and the concerned divisional chart.
The effect of any Muhurta can remain only for a few days or months. That is why it is important to examine the position of planets in the zodiac for the given Muhurta. According to the estimated time frame of work, we compress the Vimsottari Dasha. After compression, we analyse it to see how the work or activity is going to progress according to the times.
Furthermore, another very important point that we analyse is the “Hora”. Hora means the hour that is going on at that time when we are thinking of starting the activity. The planet corresponding to that hora should be in a strong and good position. We need to also see auspiciousness of the first dasa in the compressed Vimsottari Dasha.
The Panchanga is not enough 🌗
Telling the muhurata only after referring to the almanac or the Panchanga is not proper. Besides the almanac, the above points are very important in muhurta calculations. We need to refer to the horoscope created from the time of birth of that activity.
If all this appears complex, it is best to calculate the muhurta ourself. If nothing else, we should pray to Ganesha and continue with our activity.
The Ganapati Atharva Shirsha is auspicious for all occasions and all muhurtas. We can play it in the background at the time of undertaking any important activity.
