SHUBH-MUHURTA (AUSPICIOUS TIME)

Muhurta is essentially a measure of time which refers to the application of Vedic astrology wisdom in determining the auspicious time for starting an event so that it goes through in all probability smoothly and without hurdles (subject to your overall luck of course ! ). It is translated as Electional Astrology. Simply put, it is the time we ‘elect’ (or select) to begin important events in life.

Hindu sages through their intuitive foresight had in-depth knowledge of election (called ‘Muhurta’ in Vedic astrology). The knowledge has with stood test of the time for the last over 5 millenniums, and is still followed without modifications in most of India. In India, this aspect of astrology is ingrained in day-to-day life to the extent that its non-use in significant pursuits like marriage, travel, house building, etc., even for an ordinary citizen, is an exception.

Muhurta' is a vast subject in itself but 'Chowghadia-muhurtas' provide a quick  and quite effective reference table to any person who does not have access to a well qualified Vedic astrologer or does not have time to consult him/her for any reason. You may define the 'Chowghadia-muhurtas' as general public's electional astrology.

Vedic Jyotish offers a method which divides 24 hrs. of a day in 16 time segments of approximately one and a half hours each (i.e., approx. 3.75 Ghati). Each of these time segment is called a ‘Chaughadia’ due to it’s approximate duration of 3.75 Ghati.

Eight equal divisions (of approx. 1.5 hrs. each) are done for time duration from sun-rise to sun-set (‘Dinamaan’) and allotted to 7 types of day-time ‘Chaughadias’ in a pre-determined order decided by weekday. Thus, six ‘Chaughadias’ get 1 division each in their share while one ‘Chaughadia’ gets 2 divisions.

Same way,  eight equal divisions (of approx. 1.5 hrs. each) are done for time duration from sun-set to next day’s sun-rise (‘Ratrimaan’) and allotted to 7 types of night-time ‘Chaughadias’ in a pre-determined order decided by weekday. Again, six ‘Chaughadias’ get 1 division each in their share while one ‘Chaughadia’ gets 2 divisions.

To sum-up, we may say, 16 time divisions of 24 hrs. are allotted among 7 types of ‘Chaughadias’. At least two time segments (of approx. 1.5 hrs. each) are allotted to each type of ‘Chaughadia’ within 24 hrs., while two types of  ‘Chaughadia’ are repeated three times within 24 hrs.

The seven types of ‘Chaughadiyas’ are as follows:

1.

‘Udwega’

- owned by Sun

Bad

2.

‘Amrit’

- owned by Moon

Good

3.

‘Roga’

- owned by Mars

Bad

4.

‘Laabh’

- owned by Mercury

Good

5.

‘Shubh’

- owned by Jupiter

Good

6.

‘Chara’ (or 'Chala')

- owned by Venus

Medium

7.

‘Kaala’

- owned by Saturn

Bad

Thus, to determine a good time to commence/initiate important works or to start a new venture or to start anything auspicious - select a good ‘Chaughadiya’. Any good work or travel should be preferably started in a Good Chaughadiya only. Scriptures say that if a work is started in good ‘Chaughadiya’ and other Muhurta determining factors (such as ‘Tithi’, ‘Yoga’, Nakshatra’ etc.) are also favourable, it is almost certain to get success in that work or effort.
