Chaughadia Muhurats

In Vedic Astrology, Chaughadia Muhurtas are a quick and  
effective method to find out the intraday auspicious times to  
start a new venture / project or begin an important /  
auspicious work. These muhurtas are extensively used in  
Guajrat and other western states of India. In this method, 24  
hours of a day are divided into 16 time segments of  
approximately one and a half hours each (i.e., approx. 3.75  
Ghati). Each of these time segments is called a Chaughadia  
due to its approximate duration of 3.75 Ghati. These  
Chawghariya / chaughadias are of 7 types and are either  
good or bad or medium (neutral) in nature.
 
To begin any good work, only "Good" Chaughadias are  
selected. It is believed that that if a work is started in  
"Good" Chaughadia and other Muhurta determining factors  
(such as Tithi, Nakshatra, Yoga etc.) are also favourable,  
success is almost assured in one's efforts.

                 Method to Calculate Chaughadia Muhurats

First each day is divided into two time periods:  

1. day time (Din-maan) - the period from local sunrise to  
sunset
2. night-time (Ratri-maan) - the period from sunset to  
sunrise (next day)

Each time period contains eight Chaughadias. To calculate  
the duration of each Chaughadia, the respective time period  
is divided by eight to get 8 chaughadias of equal time. Since  
there are only 7 types of chaughadias, therefore, in each  
time period six Chaughadias get 1 division each in their  
share while one Chaughadia gets 2 divisions.

The Chaughadias are assigned to 8 equal divisions of each  
time period (day time or night time)  in a pre-determined  
order according to the weekday. The sequence of day-time  
and night-time Chaughadias varies for each week day.  
However, the sequence is fixed and does not change for each  
week day. For example, the sequence for Monday is different  
to that for Tuesday, which in turn is different to that for  
Wednesday. But the sequence for each Monday is the same,  
as also  for each Tuesday.  [Study the Tables Below]

Clearly, the 16 time divisions of 24 hours are assigned to 7  
types of Chaughadias. There will be at least two  
Chaughadias of the same type within 24 hrs. and two types  
of  Chaughadias are repeated three times within 24 hrs.

The seven types of Chaughadias are as follows:

        Chaughadia       Ruled by               Nature

        1. Udwega        ruled by Sun           Bad  
        2. Amrit            ruled by Moon        Good
        3. Roga            ruled by Mars         Bad
        4. Laabh           ruled by Mercury    Good
        5. Shubh          ruled by Jupiter       Good
        6. Chara           ruled by Venus       Medium
        7. Kaala           ruled by Saturn       Bad

Please note that all important works / projects etc. should  
be commenced during favorable chaughadias.

Amrit, Shubh and Laabh are favourable Chaughadias.
Chara is an intermediate or neutral Chaughadia.  
Udwega,Roga and Kaala are unfavourable Chaughadias.
Chara is generally good for travelling.

However, Rahu kaal time period should be avoided even if  
it is a "Good" Chaughadia.
