Current Muhurtas

In any daytime there are certain periods, which have special meaning.

Yama Ghantaka

{[kalams.yg.start]} - {[kalams.yg.end]}

Rishi Vasishtha: "Yama Ghantaka should always be avoided in any Muhurta for auspicious (Shubha) activity". It is considered that any activity (especially travelling) started during the period of Yama Ghantaka pushes the one towards to death.

Abhijeet Muhurta

{[kalams.am.start]} - {[kalams.am.end]}

Abhijit Muhurta is one of the most auspicious and powerful criteria for initiating all types of works.

Brahma Muhurta

{[kalams.bm.start]} - {[kalams.bm.end]}

Brahma Muhurta is optimal for waking up as well as any activity connected to spiritual practices (such as Hatha Yoga, Dhyana (meditation), etc), creating, planning, projections etc.

Gulikā Kalām

{[kalams.gk.start]} - {[kalams.gk.end]}

According to Jyotish knowledge Gulika Kalam is a very negative (Ashubha) period of time every day that should be shunned for all auspicious and beneficial activities.

Rahu Kalām

{[kalams.rk.start]} - {[kalams.rk.end]}

  • New features of Janma Kundali functionality

    Dear friends,
    We continue with representing of new features on our updated www.vedictime.com. This time, let's talk about Janma Kundali (birth chart) functionality. We believe that this is a cornerstone of our project, because without a convenient and powerful functionality for analyzing a birth chart, it would be meaningless to study Jyotish at all.

    For sure, you can ask "what's so unique about it?"... Well, first of all, now our natal chart is "dynamic", as it responds to user actions in real time:
    - displays an information about Grahas (planets),
    - displays various Drishti (aspects of planets / signs),
    - allows you to adjust the time and place of birth,
    - and so on.
    Recently we received lots of questions concerning above-mentioned innovations (like "what are all these arrows about?") and decided to dedicate a small article to it.

    Let's start with Graha Drishti (aspects of planets). When you move the pointer over any Graha (planet) you can see the following elements:
    - Solid circle. It shows Graha Yuti (union of planets in one Rashi (zodiac sign)). The color of circle corresponds to the color of Graha from which Yuti comes.
    - Dotted circle. A Graha in a dotted circle tells you that it gets a Drishti (aspect from planet to) from the one that you have selected (clicked or moved a pointer to). Again, all dotted circles will be in color of selected Graha that makes the Drishti.
    - Dotted arrow. It shows that the “passive” Graha Drishti (aspect from planet to planet) is received by selected planet. In this case, the color of the arrow corresponds to the color of Graha, which "throws" a Drishti.

    In addition, by selecting a Graha you may notice that 3 Rashis (signs) will be highlighted in bold dashed line around their perimeters. The color of this line will match the color of this Graha. This effect shows that Rashi (and, respectively, all planets in it) is aspected by Graha with Rashi Drishti (sign-to-sign aspect). And the last but not the least – following the Rashi Drishti rule a Graha gets a passive Rashi Drishti from bold dashed lined Rashis, and, as a consequence, from Grahas in those Rashi.

    Now let’s point any Rashi (sign). We will see 2 types of new effects on the birth chart:
    - Dotted bold line around 3 Rashis. As described above, this effect highlights those signs, which are aspected by the pointed Rashi. Dash color corresponds to the color of Graha, which is a lord of pointed Rashi.
    - Continuous curved arrows in different colors. These arrows are coming from Rashis that "throw" Rashi Drishti to pointed Rashi. Each arrow color corresponds to the color of Graha, which is a lord of Rashi that “throws” Rashi Drishti.

    NB! You can turn on and off the displaying of all above-mentioned elements in Janma Kundali settings. To do this, simply click on a gear sign in web-site's left menu.

    P.s. Description of calculations and the meaning of aspects were not the idea of this article. It is a separate topic to describe :)
