Chaughadia Muhurtas
Chowghadia-muhurtas provide a quick and quite effective reference table to any person to find out the intraday auspicious times to start a new venture / project or begin an important / auspicious work. It is widely practiced in Gujarat and western part of India.

Chowghadia-muhurtas method divides 24 hrs. of a day in 16 time segments of approximately one and a half hours each (i.e., approx. 3.75 Ghati). Each of these time segment is called a ?Chaughadia? due to it?s approximate duration of 3.75 Ghati.

Eight equal divisions (of approx. 1.5 hrs. each) are done for time duration from sun-rise to sun-set (?Dinamaan?) and allotted to 7 types of day-time ?Chaughadias? in a pre-determined order decided by weekday. Thus, six ?Chaughadias? get 1 division each in their share while one ?Chaughadia? gets 2 divisions.

Same way, eight equal divisions (of approx. 1.5 hrs. each) are done for time duration from sun-set to next day?s sun-rise (?Ratrimaan?) and allotted to 7 types of night-time ?Chaughadias? in a pre-determined order decided by weekday. Again, six ?Chaughadias? get 1 division each in their share while one ?Chaughadia? gets 2 divisions.

To sum-up, we may say, 16 time divisions of 24 hrs. are allotted among 7 types of ?Chaughadias?. At least two time segments (of approx. 1.5 hrs. each) are allotted to each type of ?Chaughadia? within 24 hrs., while two types of ?Chaughadia? are repeated three times within 24 hrs.

The seven types of ?Chaughadiyas? are as follows:

1.    ?Udwega?                     - owned by Sun                Bad
2.    ?Amrit?                           - owned by Moon             Good
3.   ?Roga?                           - owned by Mars               Bad
4.    ?Laabh?                         - owned by Mercury         Good
5.    ?Shubh?                        - owned by Jupiter            Good
6.   ?Chara?(or 'Chala')      - owned by Venus             Medium
7.    ?Kaala?                         - owned by Saturn             Bad

The ?Amrit?, ?Shubh? and ?Laabh? are Good/ favourable Chaughadiyas.

The ?Chara ?is a Medium Chaughadiya

The ?Udwega?, ?Roga? and ?Kaala? are Bad/ unfavourable Chaughadiyas

Thus, to determine a good time to commence/initiate important works or to start a new venture or to start anything auspicious - select a good ?Chaughadiya?. Any good work or travel should be preferably started in a Good Chaughadiya only. Scriptures say that if a work is started in good ?Chaughadiya? and other Muhurta determining factors (such as ?Tithi?, ?Yoga?, Nakshatra? etc.) are also favourable, it is almost certain to get success in that work or effort.
