Muhurta Martanda Importance In Hindu Astrology – Muhurta Jyotish Contents

Muhurta Martanda, also known as Muhurta Jyotish, is one of the renowned treatises on Hindu Astrology. The contents and usefulness of it to people, students of astrology and astrologers is comparable to that of Muhurta Chintamani, another standard treatise on the subject. The author of Muhurta Martanda was Daivajna Narayana, who completed the word in 1571 AD. Muhurta Martanda deals with the subject of choosing an auspicious time for activities. Like all other branches of knowledge, Muhurta Jyotish aims at maximizing human well-being. Daivajna Narayana wrote his treatise to help the selection of Muhurta or auspicious times for various activities of life and for performing various samskaras like vagdana samskara (word giving ceremony before marriage), vivaha samskara (marriage ceremony) and so on.

Vedanta Teachings

Know the core of Vedanta Teachings. Vedanta brings, first of all, the lesson of universal toleration – that there is truth in all religions. Vedanta points out that all are true for their day and generation. No other position, they say, will stand logical analysis. For, if what we believed yesterday be false because we think differently today, then our today’s belief is equally false because we shall certainly advance from it to another belief hereafter… The vedantists say that each successive modified belief is part of a main stairway… of progress toward the ideal, of which each particular stair is as necessary as every other…Each individual step, from the lowest to the highest, is necessary and important and true. Every thought of our mind, every act of our body, has its cause and will in turn be a cause. And what one is today is nothing other than the sum of the thoughts, desires and aspirations of one’s past. Source - Prabuddha Bharata magazine December 1905 Wh
