Mahurta for Education

Dr. Shanker Adawal (Jyotishaacharya, PHD, MBA)
Election of a day to stat the education of the child is helpful and beneficial though depending on the planetary position with which the child is born. Mahurta or election of a day for any type of higher education or starting the study of any subject is important. Hence the need to have proper and auspicious day for the purpose.

Tracing the origine of 'Vidya' or Education, it would suffice to say that the education also comprises study of Vedas, Vedangas, Dharamastras, ayurveda (medicine), music, political sciences apart from economic science. The education also includes elementary schooling and there after stuffy in colleges with reference to modern times. Professional courses also come within the ambit of 'education'. Be that as it may, the Mahurta (auspicious moment) need to be determined because each subject in which mastery is needed needs concentration. Guidance selected for commencing the study of a particular subject brings harmony with mental currents and natural forces.

To stat with a reference is made to the Nakshtras (Asterisms). The most important and beneficial Nakshtras ruling the day to start education are: Mrigsara (Mars), and Satbhisha Rahu. In other words, the Nakshtras of Mara and Rahu are considered good and auspicious. Some of the astrologers opine that Aswini is also best.

Nakshtras Rohini (Moon), Uttaraphalugi (Venus), Uttarashas-a (Sun) and Revti (Mercurry) are considered to be 'neutral' to start education.

Other Nakshtras ruling the day for staring education, Tuesdays and Saturdays should be avoided to the extent possible. Sunday is considered permissible if other planetary position is good. Therefore good days for stating education are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

The following this (Lunar days) are considered auspicious for stating education:

-         1st of dark half- 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 10th and 11th.
-         But – 4th, 8th, 9th and 14th should be avoided. In addition, avoid New and Full Moon days.

With regard to rising Laganas (Ascendants), Lagan at the time sending to school or starting education should not be a fixed sign (Taurus, Leo, Scoropio and Acquarius). Common signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces) are considered to be best. Movable signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) are considered 'ordinary' for purposes of starting education.

Following important Yogas for starting education may also be kept in mind.

  1. Wednesday coinciding with Hasta Nakshtra (Moon) when Gemini or Virgo is rising and preferably the Sun, the Moon and Mercury should occupy the amsa of Mercurry.
  2. Wednesday at Sun-rise when the Mercurry happens to be in its exaltation.
  3. Wednesday when Mercury id in Lagna and occupies 3rd 'charan' (Pada) or Hasta (Moon).
  4. Jupiter in deep exaltation in Lagna (Cancer ruled by the Moon) on days other than Saturday and Sunday.
  5. Exalted Venus i.e. Friday when Pisces is rising and Venus occupies at 27 degrees.
  6. Thursday when Jupiter is in the deep exaltation and Cancer Lagna is rising.
  7. For starting education for-none i.e. latest be Noon is the best time.
  8. With reference to a particular Lagna, malefic should be disposed in 3rd, 6th and 11th house.
  9. The 8th house should be clan and unoccupied by benefic or malefic planets.
