(5.1/1) Practical Hints regarding Muhurat

What are Practical hints regarding Muhurat

Starting the task at the auspicious time increases the possibility of success. No doubt Muhurta is the most auspicious time to start or execute the task or the event.
But at the same time it is also the fact that Muhurta is not each and everything. It cannot be the remedy for all the ill affecting factors. So the following precautions and practical hints should be kept in mind-
(1) The event or activity or work must be started or done within the period prescribed for that event or activity.
(2)There are some actions or events or tasks which demand immediate attention and action. We cannot wait for muhurat  for them or we cannot ignore them for want of muhurta. They are of so urgent nature that we cannot postpone them. For instance if a heart patient requires immediate medical treatment, we cannot wait for muhurta to take him (the patient) to the doctor or to hospital.
(3) Muhurta is the most important factor which harmonizes one’s forces with nature and increases one’s chances of success. But there are some other factors i.e. God’s blessings,sincere effort done by the person concerned and the circumstances under which the work is done, are also responsible for bringing out desired results.         
For example if a person starts to run a cyber cafe in accordance with muhurta in a remote small village which has the population of only 2000 people, how can he expect to earn much money from that cafe.
The other example can be cited of a person who buys a car in the Subh muhurta but if he drives it at a very high speed drinking too much , or if he drives in the wrong side, how can he expect to avoid accidents and what can muhurta do under such circumstances. Similarly if a farmer sows seeds in his field at the right time in accordance with muhurta but if he does not irrigate his field at the proper time, he cannot hope to get good crops.
In short it can be said that muhurta gives the well beginning to the task which is equal to the half done. The other half depends on the factors related to the task as cited above.

Stories related to Dhan Teras - 

1.According to the legend there was a young son of king Hima. It was predicated that his death would be by snake bite on the fourth day of his marriage. On that particular day, his newly wed wife did not allow him to sleep. She lit the lamps all over the palace. Then she narrated stories and sang songs to keep her husband from falling asleep. When Yama , the god of death , arrived at the prince's doorstep in the guise of a serpent, his eyes were dazzled and blinded  by the brilliance of the lamps and the jewelry. Yama could not enter the prince's chamber , so he climbed on the top of the heap of gold and silver coins and sat their the whole night. In the morning , he silently went away. Thus the young prince was saved from the clutches of death by the cleverness of his new bride. So people light earthen lamps in the evening and they are kept burning throughout the night glorifying yama , the god of death.
The another legend - once there was a battle between  gods and the demons. When they both churned the ocean, Dhanvantari , the physician of the gods emerged carrying the pot full of Amrit ( Nectar ).
