Muhurat 2020 | Auspicious Timings 2020

Last Updated: 9/25/2019 12:19:29 PM

muhurat 2020Muhurat 2020: A muhurat is the auspicious time, in which, when we perform essential tasks, there are higher chances of attaining desired results. That is why one always calculates Muhurat for all Vedic rituals and worship. As a matter of fact, all the major sixteen samskaras (Garbhadhan, Punsavan, Seemantonnayan, Jaat Karam, Namkaran, Nishkraman, Annaprashan, Chudakaram, Vidyarambh, Karnavedha, Yagyopavita, Keshanta, Samavartana, Vivah, and Antyeshti) of Hinduism begin before the birth of a native and end posthumously. According to astrology, planetary constellation favourably affects the work done in a Shubh Muhurat. This specific time creates the most advantageous conditions for the aforementioned job.

Muhurat 2020

As specified in the shastras, one should organize every auspicious function and ceremony, especially the 16 sanskars in a Shubh Muhurat. Below is the list of the samskaras and their Muhurat 2020:

  1. Vivah Muhurat 2020
  2. Annaprashan Muhurat 2020
  3. Karnavedha Muhurat 2020
  4. Upanayana Muhurat 2020
  5. Vidyarambh Muhurat 2020
  6. Griha Pravesh Muhurat 2020
  7. Mundan Muhurat 2020
  8. Namkaran Muhurat 2020

What Is A Muhurat?

The Shastras describe the significance of Muhurat in detail. A Sanskrit shloka about the same goes:

काल: शुभ क्रियायोग्यो मुहूर्त इति कथ्यते। मुहूर्त दर्शन, विद्यामाधवीय
kāla: śubha kriyāyogyo Muhurat iti kathyate। Muhurat darśana, vidyāmādhavīya

Meaning, the time which is worthy of doing some auspicious work in, is called Muhurat. The calculations of Muhurat 2020 depend upon the Vedic Panchang, which is a composition of five (panch) parts (ang).

Many texts and scriptures were composed by sages, Rishis, and astrological scholars on Muhurat. These include Muhurat Shastra, Martand, Muhurat Chintamani, Muhurat Mala, Muhurat Ganapati, Muhurat Sindhu, Muhurat Prakash, Muhurat Deepak, and more.

दिनस्य यः पञ्चदशो विभागो रात्रेस्तथा तद्धि मुहूर्तमानं।
नक्षत्र नाथ प्रमिते मुहूर्ते, मौहूर्तिकारस्तत्समकर्ममाहु: ।। - श्रीपति

dinasya yaḥ pañcadaśo vibhāgo rātrestathā taddhi muhūrtamānaṃ।
nakṣatra nātha pramite muhūrte, mauhūrtikārastatsamakarmamāhu: ।। - Shripati

As explained in Muhurat 2020, according to the calculation of Vedic Panchang, a Muhurat lasts for about two Ghati (48 minutes). However, this is only true when both day and night are equal, or in simpler terms when the day is 12 hours long, and so is the night. In such a situation, there are 15 Muhurats in the day and an equal number of them at night. In the same vein, when there is no uniformity between the duration of day and night, the number of Muhurats also varies.

Calculating Muhurat 2020 With Panchang

In Hinduism, along with the Muhurat 2020, one also considers the Panchang for the month, Tithi, day, date, and nakshatras. As a matter of fact, the calculations for Muhurat of every festival and celebration in the Hindu religion also depends upon the Vedic Panchang. The Panchang consists of five parts, namely, Date, Day, Nakshatra, Yoga, and Karan.


Just as there is a date in the Gregorian calendar, similarly there is a Tithi in the Vedic Panchang (As explained in Muhurat 2020). However, the big difference between these two is that a Date begins at midnight (12 o'clock) and changes at 12 o'clock the next night. However, usually, a Tithi prevails from one sunrise to another. Many a time, two Tithis can also fall on the same day. In this scenario, the Tithi which had no connection with a sunrise (i.e., could not see a sunrise) is called Kshay Tithi.

Similarly, when a single Tithi continues for two sunrises, then that is called Vriddhi Tithi. One month (mas in Hindi/Sanskrit) has thirty tithis, out of which 15 belong to Krishna Paksha and 15 to Shukla Paksha. The last date of Shukla Paksha is called Purnima, and that of Krishna Paksha is Amavasya.

  • Shukla Paksha – Pratipada, Dwitiya, Tritiya, Chaturthi, Panchami, Shashthi, Saptami, Ashtami, Navami, Dashmi, Ekadashi, Dwadashi, Trayodashi, Chaturdashi, Poornima.

  • Krishna Paksha – Pratipada, Dwitiya, Tritiya, Chaturthi, Panchami, Shashthi, Saptami, Ashtami, Navami, Dashmi, Ekadashi, Dwadashi, Trayodashi, Chaturdashi, Amavasya.

There are many rituals that one should not perform on specific dates. For example, one should not organize the Griha Pravesh (housewarming ceremony) on Amavasya or Poornima as it is not auspicious.

Muhurat 2020: Vaar (Day)

A day is called Vaar in the Panchang.

There are seven days in a week - Somwar, Mangalwar, Budhwar, Brihaspatiwar/Guruwar, Shukrawar, Shaniwar, and Ravivar (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday respectively). Here every day has its own nature, and due to their unique characteristic, a Muhurat is determined. For example, many religious rituals should not occur on Tuesday. Therefore, while calculating Muhurat 2020, the day is also taken into consideration.

Muhurat 2020: Nakshatra

The 27 nakshatras have a great significance in the Vedic Astrology. Each of these nakshatras has a specific nature, with which they influence the native, born under it. Thus they are taken into account every time an astrologer calculates a Shubh Muhurat 2020. Below, we are describing these essential details about each of these 27 nakshatras:
