I know that auspicious activities are undertaken during a particular, apt shuba horas. But I wanted to ask a clarification. In the theory of horas, is it important to commence the task in the right hora? Is it more important to end the task on the right hora? Or, is the requirement that we start the task such that majority of the duration of the task happens during a good hora?

I've seen a lot of theory on it here: https://www.drikpanchang.com/muhurat/hora.html but I can't find the answer to my particular question.

    Apart from Hora, one also needs to consider Chogadia, Panachaka Rahita Muhurta, Rahu Kala, Yamaganda and Kalabela etc. All these can be found from the same Drikpanchang website. Sometimes you will find a good Hora coincides with a bad Muhurta (as per Panchaka Rahita). It becomes confusing to choose a good Muhurta in such cases.

  • But in all these cases, what's more important? The time at which we start the task or the predominant time period f the task, or the end of the task?

  • I am also confused about which one to choose. I use Chougadia and also Panchaka Rahita Muhurthas. Also before doing a task on a particular day I also check the Tarabalam (whether its a good day as per my Nakshtra) and Chandrabalam (whether the day is good for my Moon sign).

  • The time when we begin the task is important. But we may need to see whether the task can be completed within the good Muhurta or not but that's not always possible.
