# How is the first choghadiya decided?

I've been looking at the Wikipedia page of Choghadiya and while it is very clear on the boundaries between each Choghadiya, it does not tell how to determine the first Choghadiya.

Looking at different dates:

• Labh
• Amrit
• Kaal
• Shubh
• Rog
• Udveg
• Char
• Labh

### 19 October 2084

• Shubh
• Rog
• Udveg
• Char
• Labh
• Amrit
• Kaal
• Shubh

While the cyclic order remains the same, the first choghadiya changes from Labh to Shubh. How can this be determined?

• There is a table that monday first chaughadiya is x and Tuesday y etc you can memorize that – Rakesh Joshi Mar 29 '18 at 23:38
• @RakeshJoshi Can you give a link to the table or the table itself as an answer? I've been trying to find a good reference, but haven't found it yet. – Nemo Mar 30 '18 at 4:44

The order is decided by the day of the week.
