Brahma (Time of Brahma – the creator) Muhurata (Period) is a period 96 minutes before sunrise. This is the best time for physical and spiritual exercises for a healthy and long life.
We live in a world that always keeps us on our toes. Hectic work routines and surging expenses cause stress.
Eating junk food and consuming carbonated drinks pollute and harm our immune system.
This in turn leads to diseases and constant dependability on medicines. As a result, the human life span is reducing each year.
According to the International Journal of Yoga and Applied Sciences, Brahma Muhurata consists of Jeeva Amrutha or Nascent Oxygen that flourishes and rejuvenates each and every cell of the body. The oxygen level in the atmosphere during this period is at 41%.
The ancient textbook of Ayurveda – Ashtanga Hridayam also described the benefits of Brahma Muhurata as – | ब्राम्हे मुहुर्त उत्तिष्ठॆत् स्वस्थो रक्षार्थमायुषः |. This literally translates to “In order to protect his life, a healthy person should get up from bed in Brahma Muhurta”.
During Brahma Muhurata, the atmosphere is calm. Everything is quiet and peaceful. The distractions of the world are all at rest. Hence, adjusting your biological clock to wake up during Brahma Muhurata has several physical and spiritual advantages.
- Healthy Lungs
- Increased Life Span
- Overcoming Obesity
- Overcoming Depression
- Helps in Reducing Diabetes

This is one of the best ways to lead a healthy lifestyle. Ujjayi Pranayama, Sheetkari and Sheetali, Bhastrika, Brahmari Pranayama, Kapalbhati, Anulom Vilom Pranayama, Vrikshasana, Shirshasana improve blood circulation, activate body channels and balance the Tridosha – Vata, Kapha, Pitta
Another way to clear your mind and enhance your conscience is to meditate. Meditation has mistakenly portrayed by some as an art to concentrate. In essence, it is the practice to go thoughtless. During this period, the Sushma Nadi flows freely, allowing you to connect with the universe with less effort. If you want to learn the right way to meditate, click here
Mantra Jap / Chants
Described as the food for the hungry soul, mantra jap/chants – such as Om Namah Shivay or any jap given by your guru will give maximum results. This is due to the fact that during Brahmamuhurata, the Sattva or energy of goodness is at maximum.
Read a Book
This is the best way to feed your mind with positive and motivating wisdom. Your grasping and decoding powers are the best during this period. Most of the students in India prefer early morning studies rather than staying up late.
We are complex beings and get entangled in our own emotions. These emotions decide how we act and react in the external world. Brahma Muhurata is the best time to understand our emotions. It is a great opportunity to understand and get rid of emotions that hold us from being a better human being.
Work on Your Day or Life
Your mind is ‘stable’ during this period. Hence, plan the 8-10 hours of your day during Brahma Muhurata or plan your life – the way you are living vs. the way you would wish to live.
