People consider auspicious muhurats before doing any work so that it gives positive results. Astrology says that good muhurat enhances the chances of success of the work. But sometimes people do not find auspicious muhurat for their work, though it is urgent. In this circumstance people face problems as proper muhurat is not available for performing the work.
Today people are very busy. They have limited time to spend with their relatives and missing a good muhurat for some important occasion can really cause problems. It is because all the relatives may not gather on same days. In this scenario the abhijiit muhurat acts as a rescuer with all its auspiciousness.
The motto of astrology is to simplify the principles of the society and life by showing the auspicious path. That’s why people consider astrological principles to avoid the negative influences in their life. Abhijit muhurat is a flexible astrological principle which relieves people if they perform an auspicious work in it.
According to Vedic astrology there is a special muhurat called abhijit. This muhurat is auspicious for any work. Abhijit muhurtha is not special to any particular condition but it is present every day. Astrologers say that a day’s 8th muhurat is called abhijit muhurat.
The duration of the abhijit muhurat lingers up to 48 minutes (when day and night in same length) 24 minutes before and after the sidereal time is called the abhijit muhurat. Basically it stays up to 48 minutes but the duration may reduce if the day is shorter. As the abhijit muhurat is auspicious people opt for this muhurat to perform their work. Abhijit muhurat safeguards a work even if the day is inauspicious. (Article, where explite who to calculate abhijit muhurat, when day longer or shorter than night.)
Astrologers say that if in any condition an auspicious work does not have a good muhurat then natives can perform their works on the auspicious abhijit muhurat.
