A land of rich heritage, India has numerous sacrosanct sages in different eras offer their divine knowledge. Vedic astrology is also an ancient divine science which is helping humans since long. Muhurat (good time) is always being considered before performing any propitious deed or starting any journey so that the same can be accomplished without any hurdle. It would bring positive results.
Hora Chakram is a very important and integral part of Vedic astrology. It has been described through the following verse (shlok):
"यस्य ग्रहस्य वारे यत्किंचित्कर्म प्रकीर्तित:।
तत्तस्य काल होरायां सर्वमेव विधीयते।।"
It means that different sages have said that whenever a work has to be accomplished in a specific day, it should be done during that day’s Hora and Nakshatra.
Meaning of Hora
The word Hora has derived from Ahoratra in which “Aho” means day and “Ratra” means night. In Spanish language, Hora also means time. According to vedic astrology, (a)hora(tra) is the duration between Sunrise to next sunrise. Hora is considered as the important part of astrology. When there is no availability of any auspicious Muhurat for a specific work, the management of Hora Chakra is given in vedic astrology. Hora Shastra has been considered as the infallible medium of work achievement.
How to Calculate Hora Muhurat?
Out of 7 days a week, every day has its own planetary Lord viz Sun-Sunday, Moon-Monday, Mars-Tuesday, Mercury-Wednesday, Jupiter-Thursday, Venus-Friday and Saturn-Saturday. Each Hora is dedicated to one planet hence, there are total 7 Horas in actual. These are Sun Hora, Venus Hora, Jupiter Hora, Moon Hora, Mercury Hora, Mars Hora and Saturn Hora respectively.
Hora is a unit of time. There are 24 Horas in a day that comes around the duration of approx 1 hour. However; this can be changed as the same is dependent upon total period from one Sunrise to another.
There is day and night in total during sunrise to sunrise. This period is divided in two major parts. Day Horai or Daytime (Din Maan) from Sunrise to Sunset and Night Horai or Night Time (Ratri Maan) from Sunset to next sunrise. There's always some minor change of time of sunrise and sunset, hence duration of Din Maan and Ratri Maan changes accordingly. There are 12 Horas each in a day and night. Hereby, the duration of Day and Night is further divided into 12 equal parts consisting of 12 horas.
First Hora of a specific day is of the Day Lord and second hora is of 6th Day Lord from the day itself and so on. Thereafter this cycle would continue till next day until sunrise.
For example: If today is Sunday, so First Hora will be of Sun, Second hora will be the 6th day lord i.e. Venus, Third Mercury, Fourth Moon, Fifth Saturn, Sixth Jupiter, Seventh will be of Mars and thereafter next Hora will be of Sun and so on. After next day sunrise, first hora of that would begin in the same manner.
