Diwali is the festival of lights, signifying the win of good over evil. In 2014, Diwali falls on 23th October. However, Diwali is not just the festival of lights; the five-day long celebrations also mark the worship of deities which involves various offerings, prayers and rituals like pooja or homa. Prayers are offered to Lord Ganesha, Kalsa (denotes universe) Lord Shiva, the Navagraha and Goddess Lakshmi.

However, Goddess Lakshmi is held in special reverence during these days. Performing Lakshmi Pooja during Diwali is considered auspicious as She is believed to visit our home during these holy days. Therefore, offering heartfelt prayers to goddess Lakshmi will bless you with inexhaustible wealth and great fortunes.

Goddess Lakshmi, the consort of Lord Vishnu is the daughter of Sage Bhrigu, and emerged when Devas and demons were churning the ocean of milk. She blesses us with prosperity and success in all endeavors. There are specific rituals associated with Lakshmi Pooja. Since She is said to leave places that are not clean, people ensure that the place for performing Pooja is kept clean.

There is a belief that Goddess Saraswathi, the significator of knowledge and wisdom and Goddess Lakshmi do not stay together at one place for long. Therefore, Lord Ganesha is worshipped along with Goddess Lakshmi, as Ganesha is believed to have the powers to make both the goddesses stay together at one place, so that one can enjoy wealth and wisdom and in turn, success and happiness in all aspects of life.

Lord Ganesha is known as the “God of Luck” as well as the “vanisher of obstacles”. Performing Pooja to Ganesha will help you overcome impending obstacles and achieve success. Worshipping Ganesha on Diwali day along with keeping books in front of him related to your profession or business will bring career success to you and help you deal with work related problems or recover from losses.

So invite home the Goddess of Prosperity on Diwali 2014 as She will help you fulfill all the dreams and pave way for a prosperous life.

Muhurta or Muhurat – The Perfect Time for Auspicious Purposes


Muhurat also known as Muhurta is the branch of Vedic astrology that deals with the most auspicious and appropriate time to commence a new activity in order to ensure success. It is purely based on the calculation of various aspects of Vedic astrology like the planetary position of native, of the particular day on which the activity has to be performed etc.

Muhurat is the moment when the conditions are as near perfect to start a new work. Traditionally, it is a common practice amongst Hindus to start or avoid starting significant tasks like religious ceremonies, buying a new house, land, other property, vehicles, marriage or engagement, starting a new business, signing work contracts, partnership deeds etc… on the basis of the quality of a particular Muhurta.

Consideration of Muhurta or Muhurat to start a new venture or to celebrate a ceremony in family is very important. It is often seen that an individual even after having favorable planetary positions is not able to achieve success because of starting the venture on an inauspicious time. This is even equal to go against the natural forces and unfavorable cosmic powers.

The Vedic scriptures also generally recommend one or more Muhurtas to perform rituals and practices. Brahma Muhurta, one such example, is approximately one and a half hours before sunrise and is recommended in all practices of yoga as it is considered most apt for meditation.

The Scientific Importance of Muhurta (Muhurat)

Muhurta is a typical combination of the planets, which makes a favorable effect on human beings similar to the gravitational force between the planets and the living & non-living things on earth.  For Example – The high & low tides in the ocean are caused by the gravitational force between Moon and earth.

How to Determine a Suitable Muhurat

We need an Ephemeris (Panchanga) giving the astronomical computations of the planetary positions to determine a suitable Muhurta. Five elements are chosen carefully for success in any new venture, namely Vara (weekday), Tithi (lunar day), Nakshatra (asterism), Yoga and Karana. These five main elements are easily determined through the planetary positions and are explicitly listed in Ephemeris or Panchang. In addition, for selecting a propitious moment or Muhurat, the Ascendant and Moon must be strong, both at the time selected as well as in relation to the horoscope of the concerned individual.

There are certain rules stated for astrological time selections in Muhurta treatises in Vedic astrology such as the choice of nakshatra depends on the nature of ventures.  There are also some forbidden moments like gullika, Rahukalam etc, which are taken into account while selecting an auspicious Muhurta.

Use This Wonderful Component to Maximize Your Success!
