  • Thyajyam is an inauspicious time of the day during which it's generally suggested not to do /start any auspicious work like buying/entering new house , buying new goods ,Naming of child etc. It looks like from primary search that this has nothing to do with birth. May 14, 2017 at 8:49
  • It is Rahukalam or inauspicious period for undertaking no new works.. so must be avoided.

Varjyam is a Dur-muhurta or inauspicious time of the day. It occurs everyday based on the nakshatra. It is calculated based on small portion of degrees of every star (nakshatra). The timings are easily available in the panchagams.

Nakshatra Thyajyam is quite significant in Tamil Astrology. Nakshatra Thyajyam is an inauspicious time of approximately 1 hour and 36 minutes every day. No auspicious Muhurtam is suggested during this time window. Many Panchang, including Drik Panchang, shows Nakshatra Thyajyam as Varjyam in daily Panchangam. Nakshatra Thyajyam is known as Visha Ghatis in North India.

Prohibited Activities Marriage, Chudakaram (Mundan), Annaprasana Samskara, entering into new house, travelling, any other auspicious work should be avoided during Nakshatra Thyajyam.

Synonyms Varjyam, Visha Ghatis, Vishagatika, Visha Nadi, Vishanadi Dosha, Nakshatra Tyajyam, Nakshatra Thyajya, Nakshatra Thiyajam


However, there is no specific mention related to birth in this time. If you still want to get some remedial measures performed then you can contact your local priest for the same.

  • It's pretty obvious that there would be no mention of birth in all this. Anyone could take birth at any time irrespective of auspicious time or inauspicious time and priest can do nothing about it. A person has to go through their prarabdha irrespective of birth time.
