Review of literature
• Significant time of Brahmi Muhurta:
Acc. to Hemadri it is considered as last part of night i.e
time just prior to sunrise.
Acc. to Sarvanga Sundari commentery, the beginning of
the 14thmuhurta of night is to be considered as Braahmi-
Muhurta. It begins at dawn; it is the penultimate Muhurta
of night. Thus the healthy individual may get up two
Muhurtas i.e.96 minutes (=almost 1.5hrs) before sunrise.
Commenting on this Acharya Charaka while explaining
the Adhyayanavidhi explained that it is important for a
scholar to get up early in the morning and says that one
should get up during Upavyusha i.e, when still there is a
part of Ratri is left which is nothing but Brahmi

fact worldly wide.
• “Brahme Muhurte Uttishtet Swastho
A person who is interested in preserving the
health, longevity and to avoid Vyadhi and
Alakshmi (poverty) one should get up early
in the morning in Brahmi Muhurta. but a
person with diseases should sleep for
maintaining the Dhatusamyata.
Susrutasamhita’s Rutus in Dinacharya
• Begining of the day - Vasanta
• Midday - Grishma Rutu
• Last part of day - Pravrit Rutu
• First part of night - Varsha Rutu,
• Mid night - Sharad Rutu and
• Pratyusha (last part of the night):
Hemant Rutu where the Bala is
seen as highest.
So it is always better to get up in a time when the Bala is
Uttama, than Vasanta Rutu dominated time, where Kapha
Prakopa is seen.

Brahmi Muhurta. The interpretation can be
made that it starts from 2 Muhurtas i.e.96 min or
1.5 hrs before sunrise irrespective of Rutus.

6am is said to be Brahmi Muhurta.
