Muhurta Parichayamu – Telugu

Acharya Dr. C. V. B. Subrahmanyam


Acharya Dr. C. V. B. Subrahmanyam


Determination of Muhurta constitutes one of the most important aspects of Phalita Jyotisha. Among the ancient Bharatiya shastras, Astrology has developed significantly along with Astronomy (Vedanga Jyotisha). In the vedic times rtus and naksatras were specified for deciding various aspects of yajnas as with samskaras such as garbhadhana (conception). Finding a right time (in a day, month, season or even year) to perform any important activity pertaining to various activities of life (can be signing agreements in a day to performing samskaras) is the essence of Muhurta nirnaya. Performing an activity in an auspicious time is thus a unique aspect of Bharatiya Jyotisha not studied in Chinese or other Western astrological systems.
