Meditation during Brahma Muhurta

Brahma means knowledge, and Muhurta means time period. Brahma Muhurta is the perfect time period to perceive knowledge. “The Creator's Hour“ or the “Brahma Muhurta”, is traditionally the last phase or muhurta of the night, i.e. between 3.30 a.m. to 5.30 a.m and is considered an auspicious time for all practices of Yoga and most appropriate for meditation, worship, religious practice and studies. One full day consists of 30 muhurthas with each muhurta lasting for 48 minutes, and therefore the Brahma Muhurta begins 1 hour and 36 minutes before sunrise, and ends 48 minutes before sunrise, which the sages claim to be an auspicious time for rising up in the morning. People who follow Brahma Muhurta regime are found to be more productive. It gives the body good energy boost to keep up with the hectic day. Also, early risers are reported to be more adept in taking better decisions, planning and achieving goals. The rising sun not only brings a ray of hope for a new day, but the one who witnesses the rise of the sun is also blessed with many other health benefits, right from bone strengthening to anti-cancer, the first rays of the sun is a boon in many ways. After a good night's sleep, the mind is refreshed, calm and serene. There is the preponderance of sattva or purity in the mind at this time, as well as in the atmosphere.
