India is a country, where all the huge functions are started after the Muhurat. Muhurat is a time, which is calculated by seeing the position of planets.
Each day of the festival shows the day of different avatar of goddess, with certain rituals. We are on the seventh day called as Saptami, followed by Ashtami, Navami and finally the 10th day which is known as Vijayadashami.
The auspicious days will be seen coinciding this year. For instance, Today, on October 23, 2020, Saptami is celebrated, but the muhurat for Ashtami will begin at 6:57 pm on the same day and will end at 6:58 am on October 24, 2020.
Also, the muhurat for Navami, the ninth day, will begin on October 24 itself at 6:58 am and will end at 7:41 am on October 25, 2020. While in some places, like in West Bengal, Navami will be celebrated on 25th October.
Dashami will be celebrated on October 26, 2020 — the muhurat will actually begin at 7:41 am on October 25 and will end at 9 am on October 26, 2020.
The overlapping of these days is because the auspicious days are based on their muhurat and muhurat has nothing to do with the 24-hour clock that we follow, astrologer and prophesier Pandit told . “This year Ashtami and Navami are falling on the same date but at different muhurat. As per the muhurat, there is no overlapping in the timings of both the days. One muhurat is ending and another is starting,” he said.
The muhurat is based on the lunar cycle. The astrologer says “The muhurat is based on the lunar cycle which begins with the new moon day, which decides the almanac or panchanda which determine the tithi, vara, nakshatra, yoga and karana. These are calculated based on the position of the sun and moon. But various almanacs or panchanda are followed across India, which differ only slightly from each other. The most widely followed is Chitra paksha panchanda for which calculations are made based on the equinoxes.”
The muhurat for Sandhi puja, which is performed at that time when Ashtami ends and Navani begins, will be between 6:34 am and 7:22 am on October 24, 2020.
Don’t mess it up and do your rituals according to the muhurat with your heart and soul, the goddess of dignity and power will surely bless you.
