Mystery of Brahma Muhurta
What is Brahma Muhurta
Early Morning is considered as the best time to worship God. Early morning is also known as “BrahmaMahurat” in the Hindu Mythology. It is regarded that prayers made at this time reach directly to the God.
Westerners regard Benjamin Franklin’s quote “Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.” As the best advice for success.
There is also the expression: “The early morning has gold in its mouth.”
We as Indians are well aware of the merits of early awakening. Ayurveda preaches us about this virtue in its own unique way. Dinacharya is a wonderful concept gifted by Ayurveda to the whole world. Dinacharya starts with getting up from sleep in the Brahmi muhurta.
Braahma-muhurta is of 48minutes. Braahma-muhurta begins at dawn; it is the penultimate #muhurta of night. Thus the healthyindividual may get up two muhurtas i.e.96 minutes (=almost 1.5hrs) before sunrise.
This regimen is not applicable for those who are unhealthy. Braahma-muhurta is the second half of fourth yaama and one should wake up at that time. As such, the beginning of the 14th muhurta of night is to be considered as Braahma-muhurta. A person who is interested in avoiding diseases, who is determined to protect his life should get up in brahma muhurta to avoid ‘vyadhis'(diseases) and ‘alakshmi'(poverty). But a person with
diseases should sleep for maintianing the ‘dhatu samyata’.
A pacemaker-like mechanism in the brain regulates the circadian rhythm of sleeping and waking.
(“Circadian” means “about a day.”) This internal clock, which gradually becomes established during
the first months of life, controls the daily ups and downs of biological patterns, including body
temperature, blood pressure, and the release of hormones.
The classic phase markers for measuring the timing of a mammal’s circadian rhythm are:
1, Melatonin secretion by the pineal gland
2,Core body temperature
3,Plasma level of cortisol.
The average human adult’s temperature reaches its minimum at about 05:00 (5 a.m.), about two hours
before habitual wake time. Melatonin is absent from the system or undetectably low during daytime. It
is secreted more in darkness. Its major metabolite can also be measured in morning urine. This
hormone plays a little role in regulating the sexual functions in human being.
Disadvantages of getting up late:
After six, kapha domination is seen. So people who get up in kapha kala tend to be dominated by
tamo guna throughout the day. Bowel movements tend to be sluggish under the influence of #kapha.
Mind and body will be inactive owing to the influence of kapha dosha.
After sunrise people awake and the materialistic mental radiations are emitted through their physical senses. The atmosphere is polluted. People will disturb each other dragging themselves to materialistic discussions. So best time for doing meditation is early morning. Foetid smell in mouth constipation, indigestion, #laziness, and many kinds of eye diseases arises just because of getting late in day.
1. Brahmi Muhurta is the best time for the maintenance of all types of physical, mental and spiritual
activities of the body.
2. The time ranging from 1 hour to 11/2 hour before sun rise can be considered as Brahmi muhurta.
3,Information as per the modern science proves the importance of Brahmi muhurta in relation to
maintaining normal physiological functions.
4,Concepts of Ayurveda are already proved by its own scientific reasons, but we need modern
spectacles for better understanding.
