What is the specialty of Godhuli time? Comments welcome.
Love and regards,
A pundit should not worry about Nakshatra, Tithi, Karana,Lagna,
Naavamansh, Muhurtam, Yoga, Ashtama Stana , Jamitra Dosaha etc when
he fixes Godhuli Lagna. According to all Munis, Godhuli lagna is best
for all auspicious Karyas.
There is A Godhuli Bheda as Under.
In Hemant Ritu, when Sun is round before Sunset, In summer when it is
half set and in Rainy season when Sun is fully set, it is termed as
A wise Pundit fixes Godhuli lagna accordingly.
There are some important things to be remembered about Godhuli Lagna.
On Thursdays , Godhuli is Shubha when Sun is set and on Saturdays
when Sun is not fully set.If Monn is in lagna, sixth or eighth house
at Godhuli, Kanya (Bride) dies. So avoid Godhuli lagna with above
Similarly, Mars, when in Lagna, 7th or 8th at Godhuli time,
Bridegroom gets destroyed.
So avoid such combination.
If Moon is in 2nd, 3rd or 11th house during Godhuli, it is Auspicious.
Martand Panchang which is published from Chandigarh has
given a concise view on Godhuli Ladna which are useful
as these are based on the gist of classics:
" While fixing the auspicious Mahurta for marriage, three factors are considered:
! Tribala Shudhi- From The Moon of Bridegroom ., the transit Moon and Sun should
be in auspicious places. From the Moon of Bride , Moon and Jupiter should be in
auspicious places in transit. (Help of Astakvarga will be useful)
2 a. Samaya- Suddhi-(auspicious time)- Time and day of marriage should be free from 24 dosas,
If their is some dosa out of 24 , the Graha Shanti should be done if possible , otherwise such days
are not suitable for marriage.
b Out of 27 , only 15 Naksahtra are suitable for marriage. Any of the following
Naksahtra should be ruling at the time of Marriage:
Ashwani , Rohni, Mirgshira, Magha,All the three Uttara, Hasta,Chitra , Swanti,Anuratha, Moola
Shravan, Dhanisthaand Revati.
The above conditions should be met ,these are must for auspicious marriage Mahurta.
Once the day is selected , then auspicious Lagna is selected. If no auspicious Lagna is
available on that chosen day , only then stability of Gohuli lagna is considered.
Godhuli Ladna should not be preferred if some auspicious Lagna is available.
Rules for selecting Gidhli lagna
This lagna rules 12 min before and after the time of local Sun set of the place where
marriage will be performed.
Moon should not be in 6 and 8th houses of Lagna,
