Choghadiya is Vedic Astrology based Muhurat or auspicious time to perform any auspicious work. In India, people do see Muhurat before doing any Puja or auspicious work. If you do not see Muhurat, then you need to at least check Chaughadia to perform an auspicious work. Mostly, it is used in western states of India. Choghadiya Muhurat is used especially in purchase and sale of assets. It depends on the sunrise. Therefore, we usually find difference in this time for every city. It is easily available in Hindu Panchang Calendar.
It is a system of finding out good and bad times based on Hindu Calendar. It can also be defined as a table of astrology, which represents the condition of 24 hours of any day depending upon stellar and vedic astrology. If you have to start new work suddenly, it is good to use auspicious Choghadiya Muhurat during that period. In Chaughadiya, 24 hours are divided into 16 parts. Eight Muhurats belong to days and eight muhurats belong to night. Every Muhurta has one and a half hour. There are 112 Muhurtas in every week including days and nights. The knowledge of Muhurta plays very important role while worshiping during day and night time. Apart from this, Choughariya Muhurt is very important for particular journey or special and auspicious work. It is believed that if any important work is done in auspicious time, then the work gets better results.
Choghadiya is a Sanskrit word that is made up of "Chau" and "Ghadiya". Chau means "Four" and "Ghadiya" means "Time". "Ghadiya" is also called as "Ghati". Hence "Chaughadia" is also known as "Ghati". The Indian time in ancient days was quite different from today's time representation. People used to see "Ghati" instead of "Hours". If both time formats are compared, then "60 Ghatis" and "24 Hours" are both same. However, there is one asymmetry also found in that, i.e. the day starts from 12:00 AM midnight and ends also at 12:00 AM next midnight. According to Legendary Indian time format, the day begins with the sunrise and ends on the next sunrise. Every Chaughadia has 3.75 ghati, i.e. about 4 hours. So if we look in one day then there are 16 Chaughadias.
There are 7 types of chaughadias (Muhurats), namely Udveg, Chal, Labh, Amrit, Kaal, Shubh and Rog. However, 8 Choghadiyas fall during day time and other 8 during night. Hence, there are two types of it existing in Hindu Panchang and both consist of 8 Choghadias (Muhurats) each. Mentioned below is the types of Choghadiya:
It is different for every day. For day Choghadiya, time between sunrise and sunset is considered and then divide it by 8, which gives roughly 90 minutes. Once we add on this time to sunrise time, it provides the first day choghadiya. For example, sunrise time is taken 6:00 AM, then adding 90 mins into that, comes 7:30 AM. Hence first Chaughdiya starts from 6:00 AM and ends at 7:30 AM. Again, if we take first one's ending time i.e. 7:30 AM, adding 90 minutes into that, comes 9:00 AM, so second one starts from 7:30 AM and ends at 9:00 AM. Similarly, we can calculate it for night as well. Here in an example, we have taken first Choghadiya as Amrit on Monday and second one is Kaal. Hence first one is good and second is bad.
