Brahma Muhurta – The Reality


Many people believe that waking up during the Brahama Muhurta increases productivity and results in some unexplained positivity.

People also believe that Brahama Muhurta is the time between 3:00 to 3:15 AM.

But that is not the case.

Brahama Muhurta isn’t a period between two specified moments in time.

Brahma Muhurta is a period, one and a half hours before sunrise—or more precisely, 1 hour and 36 minutes before sunrise.

There is no way to specify it, given that the time of Sunrise varies throughout the year.

As for the increased productivity and unexplained positivity; well, that is what your brain does.

If someone with great credibility, or a person whom you trust blindly, tells you something, your brain automatically accepts it as being the ultimate truth.

So, what people feel at 3 am in the morning, in spite of it not being Brahama Muhurta, is a result of one’s brain tricking them into believing what they want to.

And even if we consider that one is waking up every day exactly 1 hour 36 minutes before the Sunrise, there is no scientific reason why one should be more productive.

Say, if you sleep at 3 in the morning and the Brahama Muhurta starts at 4:23, there is no way you will be productive after a 1 hour 23 minute sleep.

This productivity goes more along the lines of “Early to bed and Early to rise, Makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise”.

It might make you healthy, but there is no established, proven reason why it should make you wealthy and wise too.

There are millions who wake up before the sunrise and still can hardly make ends meet.

Productivity and positivity have nothing to do with any frame of time.

Time doesn’t make you productive anymore than it makes you healthy.

Your actions do. Your will to act upon your desires does. Your needs and your wants do.

If you want something, you will work for it in the most productive and efficient way you can. You won’t do that because that particular time wants you to do so.

P.S. Do things the way you actually can be productive. Sleep at 6 in the morning; wake up at 12. Just do it how it feels right. Not how someone tells you it is.

  1. It’s not just waking up much before sunrise which makes a difference, but it’s actually utilising that one hour fruitfully that makes difference. That one hour will offer you immense tranquility and positivity and if you utilise it my meditating, doing exercises and reading good books then that can make your day.
