Makar Sankranti or Sankranthi 2013

Makar Sankranti or Sankranthi 2013:

Monday, January 14 2013

The time between Makar Sankranti and 40 Ghatis (about 16 hours for Indian locations if we consider 1 Ghati duration of only 24 minutes) from the time of Makar Sankranti is considered good for auspicious work. This period of forty Ghatis is known as Punya Kaal. Sankranti activities, like taking bath, offering Naivedhya (food offered to deity) to Lord Surya, offering charity or Dakshina, Shraddha rituals and breaking fast or Parana, should be done during Punya Kaal.

If Makar Sankranti happens after Sunset then all Punya Kaal activities are postponed until sunrise the next day. Hence all Punya Kaal activities should be done in the day.

Suggests that Muhurta Sankranti Makar Sankranti is between time and 40 Ghatis her. We list this time Punya Kaal Muhurta. Our holy scriptures suggest that 5 Duration Ghatis after Sunrise (if Sankranti happens after Sunset on previous day) and a duration of 1 hour after Sankranti Ghati (if Sankranti happens in day) are highly auspicious. If this Muhurta is available we list it as Kaal Muhurta Mahapunya. Kaal Muhurta Mahapunya, if applicable, must be Punya Kaal Muhurta preferred.

In Tamil Nadu Makar Sankranti or Sankranthi is known as Pongal. In Gujarat and Rajasthan Makar Sankranti is known as Uttarayana. In Haryana and Punjab Makar Sankranti is known as Maghi.

Sankranti Punya Kaal is different for all cities. Therefore, it is important to define your position before Sankranti Muhurta noting.
